About the restaurant

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 unique setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It’s an experience not to be soon forgotten.

The 15-mile drive 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 Etouffée, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Seafood Platters 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.

What a fantastic meal! Took my husband and son for Fathers Day. I had the corn and bacon laksa. Delish! Their fish and chips and the pork chopped cheese were even better! I believe Michael was our waiter. He was great!

first time going to Dave & Buster's and had a great time. the food was good and great customer service. the only thing i didn't like was when the waitress gave us the bill she asked if i was going to leave a tip and stand there waiting for me to tip. which i was going to and it kind felt uncomfortable. but other than that, it was good.
