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.

Tchefuncte’s is one of the nicest restaurants on the north shore. I’ve been several times and it doesn’t disappoint. Celebrated a few birthdays and anniversaries there. We will be back for sure.

Everything was excellent. Emily was our server and she was fantastic. We had two dozen oysters for the table and the only slight negative of the evening was the size of the oysters. They were on the small side, a few were tiny. Entrees were fish almondine, plank Gulf Fish, the salmon (which was incredible) and a shrimp/fish platter. All entrees were fresh and very well prepared.

We had amazing service. We had a huge party (~20) with many different dietary restrictions and Landry’s had something yummy for everyone. The seafood dishes were by far the best. Would recommend if looking for big groups.
