Description: Bayou des Familles, a lazy waterway home to many alligators, turtles, egrets and other wildlife, takes center stage as our restaurant's design provides its diners with a natural picture show. It's in this setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It's an experience your friends and family will not soon forget. The 17-mile journey from downtown New Orleans will take you through the Jean Lafitte National Park. You'll arrive at Restaurant des Familles and park under moss-filled century old oak trees. The restaurant's Acadian-style architecture provides a glimpse of bayou life that once was. Our menu features authentic representations of Cajun and Creole favorites such as Crawfish Etouffee, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Grilled Redfish and Turtle Soup. Our signature dish, Alligator Stuffed Mushrooms with Alligator Sauce Piquant will tempt even the most timid diner. We look forward to your visit.

Had a late lunch here on a Sunday. Lovely setting overlooking bayou. No alligators but lots of turtles on the day we were there. Excellent, attentive staff. Had one of the best stuffed crabs we'd ever had, and the salad dressings (honey mustard and blue cheese) brought simple, fresh dinner salads to another level. Would come here again in a heartbeat.

Whatever you do... eat here. Superb in every respect. Quite a ways South of NOLA, but worth the drive. If you happen to be South of the river, then by all means, go eat here. We had the Redfish and it was superb. The gator stuffed mushrooms are over the top. All salad dressings made in house. Service was good too.

Upscale dinning created by an excellent chef and attentive wait staff in a local, bayou setting. Surprise, surprise! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Restaurant des Familles is an out of the way restaurant with excellent food and service. We stumbled onto this restaurant after a swamp tour and we were very impressed at the quality of food and drinks.

This is a must do -
Awesome food and service. We went in on a cold Monday night and were the only customers. It worked perfectly for us as my son ordered their succulent ribs (ribs tend to be messy). I had grilled cat fish, yum.
There is a bayou in the back and that certainly adds to the ambience. The place is beautifully done, the service is great. Thank you Kelsey.
