A lovely neighborhood restaurant with a mid-eastern flair. We found it to be a good stop for lunch. A diverse menu and a friendly staff made for a pleasant mealtime break. We were staying nearby making their offer of delivery service appealing. We also found the availability of groceries a nice feature.

terribly tasty food, great service, actually friendly, and very god value, nothing to not like. When you are tired of Royal and Bourbon find this - though they close at 9 some evenings so go early - and you'll find it all good

Love this little out of the French quarter find. The baba Ganoush is great, as is the hummus . We usually get a gyro plate and split between the two of us and always are quite satisfied with the portion . Service is excellent and prices are quite reasonable.

We stopped in here after trying two other places near by that had long waits. This is delicious middle eastern food in a clean, casual and quiet atmosphere. Portions were good. They do not serve alcohol but you can bring it in. I chose fried cheese, veggie plate, with rice, feta and great sauces. I added meat to the dish.... More

In NOLA I feel like all we've eaten is unhealthy fried food. It's all good, just a little too much. This was a nice break from that. Plus, it's in a perfect location, right on Frenchman Street.

Ate at Mona's for dinner with my family and we had a wonderful experience. Our waitress was very kind. The food came quickly (within 10 minutes of us ordering) and it was absolutely delicious! This is a must if you are in NOLA!

We stopped in for some lunch one day while in the area. I had the lamb and my wife had the beef. The hummus, Tabouli, and Lamb were excellent. The beef had a off putting taste like it might have been on the verge of being spoiled. We both ate only 1 piece each of the beef but the Tabouli,... More

Had supper here with a friend. The food was absolutely fresh, beautifully spiced, perfectly cooked. Inexpensive menu of quality food. I highly recommend Mona's. Our waitress was excellent. Food arrived in a timely manner. The cafeteria-style restaurant was sparkling clean. They don't serve alcohol (although you can bring your own). Do do get a glass of their Lebanese iced tea....

After suffering brown stewy gumbos etc it was a delight to eat some delicious middle eastern food - beautifully cooked - with no frills. This cafe has formica tables and no pretences but the food is fabulous and very reasonable.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
