Do yourself a favor after you've enjoyed an swamp tour with New Orleans Airboat Tours, LLC & stop to eat at Restaurant des Families. The menu includes a great variety of Louisiana cuisine and the food was awesome!

We came here as part of a swamp tour deal. The menu was pre fixed but we had our choice between a few options. So we were able to customize our meals that way. Everything was delicious and our group enjoyed our time there.

Great food and service tucked in the Louisiana swamp land. Awesome atmosphere. Pricing is on the high end but the food is delicious.

Bayou des Familles, a lazy waterway home to many alligators, turtles, egrets and other wildlife, takes center stage as our restaurant's design provides its diners with a natural picture show. It's in this setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It's an experience your friends and family will not soon forget. The 17-mile journey from downtown New Orleans will take you through the Jean Lafitte National Park. You'll arrive at Restaurant des Familles and park under moss-filled century old oak trees. The restaurant's Acadian-style architecture provides a glimpse of bayou life that once was. Our menu features authentic representations of Cajun and Creole favorites such as Crawfish Etouffee, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Grilled Redfish and Turtle Soup. Our signature dish, Alligator Stuffed Mushrooms with Alligator Sauce Piquant will tempt even the most timid diner. We look forward to your visit.
