Delicious food, gracious service and lovely space. Quiet dining experience that seemed miles (thankfully) from Bourbon Street.

We had a wonderful meal here, trying the shrimp, quail salad, red fish and rabbit. Everything was of wonderful quality, and had been prepared with love. We really enjoyed the food, and the genuine and friendly service.

I end up eating here every time I visit New Orleans, which isn't nearly as often as it should be. The courtyard is wonderful, as are the interiors of the cozy Creole cottage. The sweetbreads entree was just delicious. The service is very relaxed and the ambiance is wonderful and charming.

Lovely restaurant. Really wanted to have ate in the garden but was full so couldn't. Food was excellent as was the service and the wine. The only issue I had was it was absolutely freezing in there; air conditioning on full.

Bayona has been going for 27 years and it always delivers. We enjoyed another great meal their. Starting with a really good house salad ,a good pour of whisky and excellent wine. We both had the rabbit and it was delicious. We finished off with 2 great desserts.

The atmosphere is definitely the one you're looking for when visiting New Orleans. The service is really good: waitress had the right timing for serving and gave me a good description of the food. The quality of food is good but probably a bit overpriced. It seems the restaurant is aiming to be considered as high-end but the paper tablecloth... More

Very friendly staff and welcome upon reception. Busy restaurant so well worth booking. Each item on menu was explained. Good choice of wine from an extensive list. Food was well presented and tasted delicious. Beautiful dining room with well set tables and flowers. There is outside dining available.

They really know how to cook at Bayona. Each dish is expertly prepared- attention to detail on each ingredient is evident as you dine. The wine list is extensive- nice creative cocktails- and a lovely setting. I wish I was more familiar and requested the outdoor courtyard. I think that would have been nicer than the room we were seated... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
