Restaurant des Familles Restaurant Review

: A 17-mile drive into the Louisiana countryside to a picturesque building overlooking an aged bayou leads to Restaurant des Familles, which offers a tour of Louisiana seafood dishes as well as a view of the verdantly green Bayou des Familles just outside. Through the wide 12-foot-tall windows, you may see alligators and small animals dozing or scurrying in their natural habitat. Soon you'll be partaking of zippy crawfish etouffée or more-than-decent versions of shrimp rémoulade, turtle soup, catfish meunière and pecan pie. This is not cutting-edge cooking, but tried-and-true traditional fare. Many dishes are fried, but they may also be grilled. The mostly California wine list is predictably limited for a restaurant of this type, but still hits some respectable high notes, from such dependable choices as Estancia Pinot Grigio to Robert Foley Claret (which pairs nicely with the sizeable T-bone steak or a spicy Cajun rib-eye). Plan to stay a while, because the atmosphere is slightly intoxicating. Restaurant des Familles closes for Mardi Gras and for ten days in July for vacation.
