Went for a dinner and decided to try three starters instead of entree. All was very good - Amelie Oyster ( grilled or baked) - Shrimp and Grts - Cajun Poutine They offer also nice cocktails and desserts. The Patio offers very nice atmosphere.

You have to sit outside here. Even if it’s cold! The atmosphere is very romantic and it’s a beautiful hidden courtyard. Our drinks, dinner, & dessert were all delicious. Would definitely go again.

We hit this spot fresh on New Orleans! Wow didn't expect that the first spot would be the best spot of the trip. I highly recommend the shrimp and grits which is very smooth! I tried shrimp and grits one other time at the restaurant...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Please note that the courtyard is seated on a first come, first serve basis. A reservation does not guarantee seating in the courtyard but we will have a table available inside our beautiful, historic carriage house. We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins. Additionally, in order to accommodate all of our guests who are waiting to be seated, we are only able to seat your party once everyone has arrived. Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Cafe Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting. Cafe Amelie has a full bar offering an array of signature cocktail creations. Cafe Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.
