Nice location. Good, affordable food. We came back a second night just as they were closing. They welcomed us and we had another great meal.

We ate there yesterday and I had Jambalaya and it was disgustingly bad. No one could make food that bad. My wife had the white beans with fish and rice. Her was a portion of white beans and two strips of fish on a bed...More

Bayou benedict with a mimosa is the BEST way to start a day in NOLA! Spring time is the best to visit as all doors are open and inviting!

Visited over Christmas. Busy restaurant, casual atmosphere, French onion soup and two crab cakes with homemade sauce were wonderful and I am a fussy person! Server was friendly.

I stopped in for a sampling of local cuisine and wasn’t disappointed. I had a muffuletta with a side of red beans and rice. They tasted great and warmed me up for the rest of my evening in the French quarter.

First time having a muffuletta and it was great. The sandwich is filled with meat. Not a huge fan of olives so I removed some of them. I couldn’t finish the whole sandwich.

We were lucky to find Cafe Maspero (just down the street from the French Market Inn) open on Christmas day. Staff could not have been friendlier, and by 11am there was a line two blocks long. Food was really good and the price was fair....More

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

Yes this is the restaurant and there are times you may encounter lines to get in. I will add however that their staff is very good at getting people in and out pretty quickly. The best times for me is when it first opens... More
