Great Food, Great Service, Great Ambience! My date and I enjoyed selections from the Taste of Lafayette event menu, which included the trout, which was simply amazing. I'm not typically a trout fan, but this was fantastic. Our server was exceptionally attentive, the food was delicious, and overall the experience was very nice. It's definitely a great place for special... More

I did not enjoy the food. It was mushy, slimy and too spicy for me. Some of the folks with me thought it was ok.

The food was quite good for a self serve, the facility very nice and the service all together adequate. We were glad to have found this as most restaurants in this type of attraction we have found to be of very mediocre quality.

We were here for the actual tour of Vermilionville and ate lunch at the restaurant while we were there. Very affordable, large portions, home cooking and regional specialties. The employees of Vermilionville all were eating here, which is always a good sign. Everyone was very friendly and service was excellent and attentive. If I lived in the area, I could... More

At this restaurant, you get great food at a great price. Amazingly, there are times that I have eaten here with few other persons present. Today I ate a bowl of good chicken and sausage gumbo, a pork sandwich with beans and coleslaw, and dessert and a drink for $10. Unbelievable that more people do not eat here. On top... More

This restaurant is also listed as La Cuisine de Maman. It is the restaurant on the Vermillionville historic village site. It is in a historic farm house style building. Food is Cajun, quite good actually. There is also a buffet. Service is quite pleasant by local young ladies. Wine choice is rather limited. Prices are very moderate.

Great ratings on Urban Spoon and Trip Advisor convinced us to go here. Boy were we glad we did. We'd been in NOLA doing Etouffe and such for 5 days, got to Lafayette & didn't want any more fish so we had the steak Louis XIII. Fantastic. The crawfish beignet were tops too. Service was most attentive. Prices high, but... More

We ate in their sun room which was really nice. They had a deal for 10$ you get a salad, biscuit, gumbo and a dessert. Its a good deal but the dessert was very tiny. The catfish was excellent. The waitress could of been friendlier. The menus are also in French which was convenient for my French in-laws.

We dined here at 2PM on a weekday where we found only one other table occupied by guests. Luckily, they were still serving the daily gumbo lunch special. It included a small salad, biscuit, rice, large bowl of gumbo, and bread pudding; all for about $10. We enjoyed dining in the authentic setting and thought the quality/taste of the food... More
