Entertaining dining. Sample portion dining.. Artistic presentation. Ate there on first mardi gras Tuesday in Grand case. The dancers came right into the restaurant. Glad we tried it but would not go back

L'Estaminet will challenge you, but embrace it and be prepared to stretch your food horizons, but also not to like everything. On our first attempt to visit after trying the more traditional places in Grand Caisse, there was a local disco blaring out next door...More

The service was great but the food was a big disappointment. The restaurant wants to be kind of experimental and alternative haute cuisine. The chef has a lot of imagination but we were all let down with the results. The food was not horrible but...More
