Caribbean
NOLA Caye combines New Orleans’ charm, culture and its genuine sense of hospitality with bold, fresh Caribbean flavors. The word "CAYE" eludes to a small island giving the restaurant's name a literal translation of "New Orleans Island" or "Isle of New Orleans."

Our menu offers Crispy Shrimp Tacos, Tuna Ceviche, Freshly Shucked Oysters, Red Curry Shrimp, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Cuban Sandwich, Ginger Salmon, Jamaican Jerk Fish and a Strip Steak with chimichurri sauce.

Save room for dessert so you don’t miss out on our Banana Crème Pie, Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich, Key Lime Pie or Tres Leches.

Our signature cocktails include “Climate Change” a hibiscus infused margarita with a fiery three-chili ice ball providing the catch phrase: “the longer you wait….the hotter it gets” Also try our “Bloody Jerk” which contains our house-made Bloody Mary mix. We dare say it’s the best version of a Bloody Mary New Orleans has to offer.

    One of my favorite places for food and cocktails. My friends and I love coming to have a small business dinner or Sunday brunch. Customer service always great. Cocktails are extremely good. My favorite is the climate change.

    Was so disappointed. We have been there a few times but this time the food was not on point. The plantains were not crispy. The steak tacos were not fresh but mostly it was the heat in the place. They failed to tell us that their air conditioner was not in service. No apologies either. I wish that when the reservation was made they could have given us a heads up because being hot and sitting in a booth where the sun was beaming on you most of the time we were eating was miserable. Not even an offering of a dessert/cocktail for the inconvenience. Sorry for the bad review but someone needs to know that customer service would have made a difference. I gave a 4 for service because our server was attentive but not management.

    I typically go to Nola Caye to a couple times a month to work instead of a coffee shop and to brunch on Sundays at least once a month.The food is always amazing and the service is outstanding. The owner actually greets you by name. The food is always fresh and it has a different twist to it. If you’re a local or in NOLA for a visit please visit this gem. And let’s just say the bottomless Mimosas….. whew!! Great place.

    As usual, I enjoyed myself and I was happy to introduce a friend to NolaCaye. I did start to feel as though my favorite (Oxtails) was over priced. 8-) I won't stop making that selection, it was just a thought.

    The food was excellent, service was great. It's an open building, so the place was pretty noisy. We had a combination of plates from the house salad, tacos, and coconut shrimp. Everything was delicious. We finished the day off with cocktails and enjoyed the New Orleans's heat! It's also pretty casual.

    From upon entering, the music and ambiance of the restaurant gave off a great vibe. Kate our waitress was spectacular in her recommendations even though she had not been there very long. The food looked like five stars but tasted like 10! Foods that my bf wouldn’t normally try were delicious and delectable beyond his expectations. We enjoyed everything from appetizers, drinks, entrees, and even the Oreo ice cream sandwich dessert down to the last bite. Definitely the highlight of the trip to New Orleans!
