Nestled in a 200-year old romantic Creole cottage in the heart of the French Quarter, Bayona is a jewel in the crown of New Orleans cuisine. Featuring flavors of the Mediterranean, award-winning Chef Susan Spicer also incorporates Alsace, Asia, India and the Southwest into her menu. Recognized by national critics including the James Beard Foundation, Susan and Bayona offer guests an elegantly causal atmosphere and consistently outstanding service.

Guests may choose to dine in the main dining room surrounded by photographs of Italian gardens, in the more intimate dining room frescoed with a trompe l’oeile of Mediterranean landscapes, in the wine room embraced by more than 250 of the world’s finest wines or on the lush tropical courtyard.

Bayona’s extensive wine list places a special emphasis on French wines and has received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence from 1996-1999. Our wine steward, Shannon Fristoe, is available to assist you in selecting that perfect bottle of wine to accompany your meal.
