The most charming restaurant I have ever been to. It's simply perfect. The atmosphere, the food, the staff, the location. Everything about it was incredible. We ate outside and only wandered inside to use the restrooms. The inside is small, yet intimate. We dined here...More

Its all about the atmosphere for me, but the food here was top-notch as well. I had a citrus chicken dish; it was unlike anything I have ever tasted before. The sauce was divine. The service was deluxe. The outdoor courtyard was enchanting. Great menu...More

Booked a reservation here based on the recommendation of the hotel where we were staying (The Cornstalk Fence Hotel) and was definitely not disappointed. We arrived about a half hour before our reservation so we could enjoy a drink at the bar. The two bartenders...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

Hello. No, there is no dress code. It's very casual, but you could certainly dress up if you wanted. You wouldn't be out of place either way, casual or dressy. It is just so one of those: 'just relax and be you and do what... More

Please note that the courtyard is seated on a first come, first serve basis. A reservation does not guarantee seating in the courtyard but we will have a table available inside our beautiful, historic carriage house. We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins. Additionally, in order to accommodate all of our guests who are waiting to be seated, we are only able to seat your party once everyone has arrived. Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Cafe Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting. Cafe Amelie has a full bar offering an array of signature cocktail creations. Cafe Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.
