Restaurant Overview

Houmas HouseRestaurants

Houmas House doesn’t feel like a museum but rather a grand old home – and that hospitality extends to meal time. You can dine at your choice of Café Burnside, The Carriage House and Latil's Landing, and enjoy a cool libation or a glass of wine at the Turtle Bar and the Wine Cellars. There’s nothing like it on the Great River Road. And it’s all just an hour from New Orleans!

Café Burnside

Café Burnside is a casual lunchtime restaurant. Old brick walls from a cotton warehouse built by the Princess of Monaco in 1883 are accented with huge 250-year-old windows offering picturesque views of the gardens and fountains. Their menu ranges from healthy salads to fried oyster po-boys to a fantastic Eggplant Napoleon. 

The Carriage House

The Carriage House, open for breakfast and dinner, offers traditional Louisiana dishes with a contemporary twist in what has been described as one of the most beautiful dining rooms in America. Enjoy an intimate dinner at a table for two or join friends and family at their 40-foot-long grand dining room table. The menu offers a range of classic Southern dishes.

Latil’s Landing Restaurant

Latil’s Landing, open only at dinner, showcases the signature dishes of Chef Joseph Dicapo. It is located in the original French House at Houmas House, which was built in 1773. They offer a Seven Course Fixed Price menu for $85 per person and a Ten Course Fixed Price menu at $120 per person. Enhance your experience with a Wine Pairing. Ask your server to see their Wine Cellars located in the Cisterns of the Hampton Court Fountain, just outside your window.

Sunday Brunch

Houmas House serves a fabulous Sunday Brunch from Latil’s Landing and Café Burnside in the Pavilion Ballroom. Go for one of their specialties like Eggs Creole or Grits & Grillades or do as we did and order The Crown Jewel Burger. It’s amazing!

The Turtle Bar

The Turtle Bar is located in one of the twin garconnieres that flank Houmas House. The old brick structure, built in 1828, offers hand-crafted cocktails, rare wine and fun beers. Make sure you leave room before dinner for the Turtle Bar experience.

The Wine Cellars at Houmas House

Houmas House converted the historic water cisterns at the rear of the main house into these handsome “wine cellars.” They replaced the large water tanks with cast iron balconies and circular staircases. Inside they are able to house over 1000 cases and 500 varietals of wines here. You can’t have mint juleps all the time!
