A very disappointed visit here for “Cajun gumbo”. It was a tasteless $9 bowl of canned tomatoes, some okra, onions a 4 tiny shrimp (smaller than a dime). No flavor, no Cajun flavor at all. My friend and I each had a bowl and left 2/3 of it. Order something else or don’t go in expecting Cajun Gumbo. Unfortunate.

We went for an early lunch on a Sunday. The patio was busy. A piano player was working thru the American songbook. It was very pleasant. We could either order from the breakfast or lunch menu. My wife ordered the cobb salad which was very good. I ordered the fried catfish filet which came with Hot fries. It was a treat, probably the best fish meal I’ve had in months. The service was fast and friendly.

Fontenot's has a wonderful outdoor verandah - we were lucky enough to get a table and enjoy a lovely morning with friends - food was delicious ! My favorite was the Beignets - but you do need to share !

When you are from Louisiana you know that Cajun cooking is all about the slow simmering of flavors coming together to make something wonderful. It does not mean "I'm going to make this dish hot enough to make your eyes run and your head sweat". And, by the way, there is NO such sandwich as a chicken muffuletta. Nope. I ordered the shrimp etouffe and while it wasn't bad, it clearly had not been prepared by a Southern chef or one trained in Southern cooking. So, if you are from the South and you are looking for a bite to eat in Winter Park, I would suggest you eat elsewhere. The serving staff was great and the decor was based on the French Quarter. Just not that good, but you get an E for effort.

We drove in from Granby for dinner wanting seafood and we were not disappointed. The red fish special was amazing and my husband enjoyed the Cajun cod. The wine was reasonably priced and the outdoor seating beautiful. Good service too!
