The buffet is good, the price is moderate as it includes soup, dessert and drink. I found the food too spicy, the peppers hide the taste of the food.

We generally look at the menu before we decide to go, as there are somethings we like more than others. It is a decent local cuisine buffet for $13, including drink, gumbo, and desert. Their gumbo is awesome. We were a little disappointed in their biscuits which are usually to die for. This time they seemed not to have risen... More

The restaurant is in a nice setting at Vermilionville and has large windows with a view over the bayou. Some members of the family were a little disappointed with their meal - others really enjoyed the dish they had.

If you're planning to experience Vermilionville before or after lunch, you can enjoy a typical South Louisiana meal at La Cuisine de Maman (Mama's kitchen) located right inside the attraction. Very casual dining, serving the comfort foods native to our table.

If you really want to try true cajun food, the way real cajuns cook it, this is the place. You'll get to taste authentic gumbo, right in the heart of cajun country. They usually serve RICE & GRAVY on the buffet which is what cajuns are really brought up on. (Honestly, boiled and fried seafood are only a special occasion... More

La Cuisine de Ma Maman was amazing. It has been a while since I so enjoyed a culinary experience. I was blown away and couldn't stop talking about how amazed I was, except to eat. I was so surprised to see that the chef was a young lady. It really tasted like your momma or grandma's cooking. It was on... More

This was a stop for the Cajun Food tour. I took a look at the buffet as I walked by and wasn't overly impressed with the food on the line, not much creativity. We were served gumbo which was pretty good, it didn't have the depth of flavor I enjoy in gumbo. The service was friendly and fast. The restaurant... More

We visited historic Vermilionville and decided to eat lunch at this restaurant. This was a Thursday, so it was not crowded although there seemed to be a large group in the back. It took a while for someone to take our order. My husband ordered the plate lunch of the day: cup of gumbo, hamburger, dessert and I ordered chicken... More

Now, I'm no native French speaker, but I know enough to be able to say that any restaurant that bares a name en Francais should at least uphold a minimum standard of food preparation, and pay homage to the traditions of a food culture that is so obsessed with perfection. Walking around Vermilionville, we toured traditional Acadian Kitchens, and walked... More
