We ordered the Octopus app and it was so tender & delicious. Also got two specials that night, a quail entree and lobster app, as well as the squid ink linguine. All of it was phenomenal. The owner always makes table visits; you can tell how much he cares about his restaurant. One thing I will note is that this restaurant takes their time with preparation, so don’t be in a hurry when you dine here. I am very happy Cocha provides cuisine that is so interesting and well-executed! That isn’t always easy to find in Baton Rouge, but the food scene is moving up! More

We have eaten many times at Stinky’s in Florida on 30A and wanted to see how the Baton Rouge location stacked up. While the layout is much different and quieter, the service and food were excellent. For starters, we ordered the crispy boudin bites (not on the Florida menu). The bites were actually fried boudin balls. The crust was thin and crispy and the boudin was very good, though not as spicy as other local boudin. They were topped with a delicious sauce and wonderful pepper jelly on the side. We both had the fresh fish grilled. I had the drum and my wife had mahi-mahi. The fish was very fresh and perfectly cooked. The seasonal vegetables were crisp and good, but a bit salty. The Florida location does not take reservations and is normally crowded with long waits, even early on weekdays. The BR location takes reservations and was not crowded. Our server was polite, personable and checked on us frequently. The foods was served expeditiously and we did not feel rushed. We will definitely be back. More

We had a very nice Valentines Dinner for two. The crawfish maque sho had to subbed for shrimp due to the availability of crawfish this season but it was MAGNIFICENT! Our waitress, Taylor, was well informed and very pleasant. She helped make our night special. We came during happy hour and got Patron margaritas and Jack and Coke 2 for 1. Can't beat that. He had the twice cooked duck, his favorite, and I had my catfish. Both were excellent. For dessert they had valentine's special - Strawberries with chocolate sauce and Ruffino's Processco. Delicious.

Discover Baton Rouge

The cultural melting pot of Baton Rouge reflects the diversity of its population in the depth of its dining options. Put simply, if you love seafood, you can't go wrong. Classic fusion cuisines like creole and Cajun are a trademark of this Southern city, but soul food and contemporary fine dining also abound. It's as easy to find great barbecue as it is to find great gumbo in Baton Rouge. And don't forget about crawfish season when you can get your favorite crustaceans prepared a dozen different ways. The city also takes its sweets seriously with even its best dinner menus putting equal emphasis on the quality of their desserts.
