“Tourist trap”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Yes, the place is run by friendly people. Unfortunately the food was a poor representation of local creole food. It is clear that they are trying to take advantage of the clientele of grand case beach club and hotel esplanade that are on the same road. Too bad I had to eat here to find this out the hard way. After all the stellar reviews, I thought it was a sure hit. Wow, was I wrong. The dinner rolls were served half defrosted--still cold in the center. The meat and fish tasted frozen too. They were overlooked, with bland seasoning. And the worst part is that it didn't even match the description on the menu. There are far too many authentic places to eat in the area to waste a meal here. Go to a place where locals dine and they don't treat tourists as of they have no idea what good food is.

“The best restaurant in Grand Case”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and decided to stop in on our last night. Oh boy was the food delicious! It was elegantly plated and freshly prepared. After visiting Lolos and fancy french restaurants we were disappointed we hadn't gone our first night! I'd definitely recommend you go!

“Best dinner in Grand Case”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Visited Le Ti Coin Creole on a whim and experienced the best dining experience of our stay in Grand Case. It's a small family establishment, and we were greeted by Chef Carl and his family upon arriving. Carl took our order directly, and served us with a personally cooked meal that rivaled the best high-end French establishments in the town center. Don't be fooled by the small building and lack of flashy decor, the French-Creole fusion menu is prepared extraordinarily well.

“Great Family Creole Restaurant”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Chef Carl, his wife and son welcomed our group of 13 with smiles and open arms; but since part of the restaurant was under renovation it was a bit of a tight fit for our group. There were seats for 4-6 additional customers. If you come after July 2014, I expect the renovations will be complete and the restaurant will be in full swing again. The menu included many of our creole favorites: fish fritters, fresh local fish, chicken, goat, and lobster. Chef Carl's young son was our primary waiter and bus boy, except for the hot plates. Dinner was delicious and exactly what we were looking for that evening.
