Great atmosphere and good food. Did not feel intimidated and welcomed as a tourist. Not cheap not expensive. What impressed me were the staff - felt genuinely attentive. Go there for an easy enjoyable meal.

Stopped as it was close to my hotel, there is something for everyone. I found my po- boy sandwich to be a little dry, the crab cakes were just okay. Decent service, great atmosphere, but food is not memorable.More

Peche is an excellent option as well as anything else located on Magazine Street. Try to stay away from the "tourist traps" around Bourbon street and environs
