The hush puppies were golden brown and very flavorful! The okra was so crispy and delicious! As for our meals we had fried... More

Unpretentious, but welcoming. Generous portions of well prepared Louisiana food. A nice variety with something for everyone.

In town on business and I decided drove past one night. They were closed but proximity and fine reviews brought me to their door the next evening. Fine atmosphere, really nice cornbread; I had some excellent hushpuppies and then some first rate Jambalaya. A slice of pecan pie sealed the meal!

The menu was very nice mixture with a couple of set menus (options for each course) with very delicious items. We were a party of three and two went for the set menus while one went a... More

Service was excellent. I had the jambalaya - flavorful but not spicy. You can spice it up with sauce if you want. Wild mushroom jambalaya was also great and I think every table around us had the fried chicken.

Cajun food restaurant on the peninsula? We had just come from watching a Tom Rigney and Flambeau concert at Twin Peaks Park in Belmont, and were in the mood for some food to match the Cajun music in the area. Checked Yelp, and Creola was the closest on our way home to Sunnyvale, among the few Cajun restaurants on the... More
