We visit this lovely restaurant every time we are in New Orleans. The service is fantastic, the courtyard is beautiful and the food is outstanding. Their sister deli Petite Amelie is open mornings and lunches and is also fantastic.

If possible, eat in the beautiful courtyard, day or night, but especially in the evening! Enchanting. The food was very good. If in New Orleans again, we would definitely return, have already recommended to friends.

Came here for Sunday afternoon lunch and requested outdoor seating in their beautiful patio. They have the best gumbo I've ever had and the blackened catfish sandwich was really good. I would highly recommend. We only had to wait 30 minutes for outdoor seating. They will text you and give you a 10 min window to get back.

This place is a gem. We made reservations about one month ago for 20 and they delighted us with two tables of 10 next to each other. Centrally located in the Quarter about 2 blocks from Royal and St. Ann, the courtyard is delightful. We had a wonderful waitstaff and wonderful brunch food. Chicken and waffles, huge meatloaf sandwiches, catfish... More

The restaurant itself is beautiful. You have the option of indoor or outdoor seating. We ordered the salmon cake with a mixed green salad that contained pecans, blue cheese, grapes and green apples along with the special of the day which was crawfish pasta. Every single bite of food was delicious. Nothing was overly spicy but everything was flavorful. Dessert... More

This was our first meal in New Orleans and we were not disappointed. Although it was very busy we did not have to wait long for a table. The food was excellent and the service really friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Super luncheon stop as we walked Nola. Good wine selection, extremely helpful and chatty servers. Good attention and follow up throughout our meal. Decent wines by the glass( and you should definitely relax with wine in Nola!). Our favorites included the Chicken Andouille Gumbo and Asian Chicken Salad. This is a relaxing oasis as you navigate the Nola streets.

We stayed in New Orleans for two days. Traveling cross - country with 2 dogs was made easier by places like Cafe Amelie. The entrance garden and seating area was delightful. Hosts were gracious as were the servers. Inside was a lovely bar and more seating. Loved the ambiance. They change their menu which is great - because it shows... More

We made reservations, we were literally 1 minute past whenever their limit was for when we were suppossed to be there and were told that we could not be seated on the patio. We were ok with that, even though there were plenty seats available. We waited for someone to take our order for at least another 15-20 minutes, then... More

I found the setting very nice, had it been a less windy day I would have loved to sit on the patio. Had the shrimp and grits which were very good as was the bread/rolls. Nice lunch.

Please note that the courtyard is seated on a first come, first serve basis. A reservation does not guarantee seating in the courtyard but we will have a table available inside our beautiful, historic carriage house. We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins. Additionally, in order to accommodate all of our guests who are waiting to be seated, we are only able to seat your party once everyone has arrived. Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Cafe Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting. Cafe Amelie has a full bar offering an array of signature cocktail creations. Cafe Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
