Over Oak Alley Plantation
Nergens anders in het zuiden vindt u zo'n spectaculaire omgeving! De honderden meters lange entree van de plantage met haar gigantische eiken, vermoedelijk bijna 300 jaar oud (!), vormt een indrukwekkende laan die leidt naar het klassieke antebellum plantagehuis in Griekse bouwstijl. Dit huis is open voor bezichtiging, onder leiding van in traditionele outfit geklede gidsen. Op het terrein bevinden zich tevens enkele cottages, die nu dienst doen als accommodatie. Ze zijn zeer ruim, comfortabel en uitgerust met centrale airconditioning, koffiezetapparaat en natuurlijk zaken als een koelkast en draadloos internet. U kunt ontspannen wandelingen maken over de weelderige gronden of op de oever van de machtige Mississippi uitkijken naar passerende schepen. Een uitgebreid 'country-breakfast' is inbegrepen.

"Throw your nutritional macros out the window!"
On a recent visit to Oak Alley plantation my partner in crime (cousin Amanda) and I were starving! I am not in the habit of patronizing tourist restaurants in general. Often the food is terrible and expensive. Especially in Louisiana, where they take food seriously! We were not disappointed! On the contrary, we were fed well beyond our expectations. We ate in the restaurant not the cafe. And we also got there about 15 minutes before closing time. The staff graciously allowed us to be seated. Being that we were short on time, my cousin and I perused the menu very quickly. Hey, these folks want to go home on time right! Instead of an appetizer and all that, we just dug right in and ordered lunch. I ordered the Chicken, Smoked Sausage, and Andouille Gumbo. My cousin ordered the four-cheese pasta. In short, both dishes were out of this world. We were so blown away by the quality of the food and the presentation. While we waited I ordered a strawberry hard cider. I cannot remember the name of it. I do remember it was a local brewery. I would recommend it, if cider is your thing. It was a light brew, with strawberry essence. It was not sweet. If sweet is your thing, this is not for you. The restaurant is built to blend in with the Oak Alley plantation. The well-placed photos and such, all make this a very southern atmosphere. The dark flooring and the dark wood paneling added warmth to a bit of a gloomy day. My dish came as the traditional gumbo, with chicken, and andouille sausage served over rice. This was accompanied by a super fresh roll. I normally stick to a low carb diet, but I am on vacation! The roll that came with the meal was worth every macro I spent! The portions were plentiful. My cousinâ€™s pasta was fantastic. Amanda is SUPER picky, period end of story. She was in pasta Heaven with her meal. Her dish also came with a side of either chicken or shrimp and okra gumbo, I made her order the chicken and we took it back to our Airbnb. After I quickly inhaled my dish, I went to work on Cousin Amandaâ€™ s left overâ€™s. I took that deelish roll that accompanied her pasta and sopped up all that cheesy goodness. Throwing my low carb livin self out the window. And it was worth it! We ended the meal with a to go bread pudding. This was equally amazing. I rewarmed it after a night of Bourbon Street adventures. The dessert was moist, full of raisin and spices. The sauce that accompanied this delight, brought the dish to a whole new level of deliciousness. The staff here, as with pretty much all the places we went to are very pleasant. They were expedient and yet we did not feel rushed due to the restaurant closing in about 30 minutes. Although this is a restaurant attached to a tourist spot, the food was beyond what we expected as far as the quality of the food. We left well fed for well under $ 50.00 bucks! This is cheap for tourist destination restaurant. I have paid much more for sub-par food and service. So, get a little history, by taking a tour (with a mint julep!) and have a meal afterwards you will not regret it!
Spent two nights in cottage 8. Everything was perfect. Easy check-in, beautiful and comfortable cottage. The best was walking the grounds after all the tourists were gone. Breakfast at the restaurant was included with the cottage and the food was good. Highly recommended.
"Review of cottages and restaurant"
We stayed two nights in Cottage #9. I can't begin to really describe how beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable it was. The cottages are superb, pristine, with tempurpedic bed, flat screen TV with Netflix, fabulous shower and kitchenette. When staying the night, it is highly recommended that you order dinner from their menu, which is delivered to your cottage, packaged for reheating in the microwave. This turned out to be absolutely wonderful, as well as being a good value. Delicious and abundant food, very easy to reheat and perfectly delightful to eat in the lovely cottage. Coffee is supplied in the cottage, and a full made to order southern breakfast is served in the restaurant as part of the room rate--just delicious. Walking around the grounds and visiting the outdoor exhibits after hours only adds to the enchantment.
"Best oyster po boy!"
Ate at the restaurant after touring the plantation house with a very knowledgeable guide who gladly answered any questions we had. Must mention that upon leaving the tour did try a mint julep, yummy! Restaurant consists of several rooms and delicious oyster po boy, probably the best ever had.
We were on a time crunch since our tour bus was leaving in short order, but we stopped into the restaurant anyway and we were so relieved that we did. The food was excellent and it came out incredibly fast. Our server was friendly and happy to accommodate us being in a hurry.
