Affordable restaurant with a view - Honeymoon


We are spending a couple of night in NO, staying centrally.

My partner is a vegetarian, and I eat anything apart from Japenese.

Our total budget would probably be $100 which would need to cover a main dish each, a dessert each and a couple of soft drinks plus tips. We are quite casual diners, so it doesn't necessarily need to be a posh restaurant - just nice food.

We would like a nice view - either of the city skyline or the river (any other suggestons also welcome)

Preferably outdoor / patio / garden / rooftop dining.

Personallly I would like to sample some of the local creole cuisine.

Any suggestions please? We won't have a car, so it would need to be quite central to the main tourise areas.

Galvez is the only restaurant I know of with a good view of the river, but it is not Creole, but rather Spanish. The French Quarter is mainly low rise and the levee blocks the river view. Likewise, the city is flat so the best skyline views are from the ferry on the river. I'd suggest trying someplace like NOLA. They should be able to accomodate the vegetarian, and give you a decent taste of New Orleans food. Or as suggested, Cafe Amelie, nice courtyard seating. New Orleans Grapevine has a courtyard too, as does Sylvain. I'd check the menus and see what appeals.
