The five best restaurants in Lake Charles include La Truffe Sauvage, Ember Grille & Wine Bar at L'Auberge Casino Resort, The Harlequin, Pujo Street Cafe, and 121 Artisan Bistro. Since the city abounds with restaurants and cafés, it will be easy to find something to eat at any of these places, which offer patrons everything from high-end steak and seafood to down home Cajun cooking.

Tucked away at 815 West Bayou Pines Drive, La Truffe Sauvage is the city's premier steak and seafood restaurant. Whether you choose the prime beef filet au poivre, the roasted jumbo white shrimp, or the Moroccan beef short ribs tagine, you'll be treated to the city's very best food in a quiet and elegant dining room.

Other outstanding restaurants in Lake Charles include Ember Grille & Wine Bar at L'Auberge Casino Resort, The Harlequin (order the filet mignon) at 501 West College Street, Pujo Street Cafe (try the shrimp bisque — a local favorite) at 901 Ryan Street, and 121 Artisan Bistro (a combo of Cajun and Italian dishes) at 121 Dr. Michael Debakey Drive.
