Note that the restaurant closes at 8, so don't plan a late dinner. Friends said the shrimp etouffee was not hot when delivered to the table. Presentation was great and wait staff very helpful.

We read the reviews and decided this was the place for dinner. Nothing was really bad, but nothing stood out as unique. Sadly most of the meals felt like Banquet Items. Prepared in advance and kept warm. Even the deserts were just OK. Wish I could say more positive, but it was just OK.

My wife and I dined at this very nice Local Restaurant, the food dishes were very good and the servings were plentiful. Good Cajun & southern cooking. Make reservations seating fills up fast, especially during light festival.

After a fun morning of shopping in beautiful historic Natchitoches Louisiana, we stopped for lunch here. Nice atmosphere. Really good wait staff. Delicious potato with crawfish etouffee and fried shrimp. We will be back.

The staff at Merci Beaucoup greeted us promptly and quickly set up a table so my father could be seated.The menu offered something... More

My friend and I came to Merci Beaucoup for a late lunch after shopping. Our server was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We really couldn't decide what to order, so we ordered a bunch of different items and split them. First of all the fried green beans were delicious. They had a bit of a kick to them. When dipped in... More

Small, clean, relatively informal restaurant. Very high quality food, i had the Cajun Potato which was crawfish etouffee over a baked potato with shrimp. UNBELEVABLE - almost brought a tear to my eye. Etouffee was excellent and loaded with crawfish. Potato was an unusual fo etouffee - rice is more traditional, but it worked beautifully. Nothing was left on my... More

I very much enjoyed my spinach salad, Neither of us can remember what my husband selected, but he remembers that it was good.The interior of the restaurant is clean and bright and the... More
