Fodor's Review

Barbecue shrimp is an addictive regional specialty that involves neither neither a barbecue nor barbecue sauce, and Pascal's is considered the dish's birthplace. The original recipe, introduced a half-century ago, remains unchanged: jumbo shrimp, still in the shell, are cooked in a buttery pool enhanced with just the right amount of Creole spice and pepper. The rest of the menu here is taken up with generally unexciting regional seafood and Italian-style creations, although

the turtle soup and the fried eggplant are good starters, and the uppercrust scene always amuses. Most important, the atmospheric old bar might be the best place in the city to slurp raw oysters.

Not Recommened for Large Parties

I am from New Orleans and I have recently tried to take two groups of friends to Manale's and both times we left after 2 hours of waiting! They are not friendly. I do not recommend this restaurant at all.

"World famous" shrimp is bland.

I went for the shrimp of course. The ingredients are as follows: Butter, oil, pepper and shrimp. Comes with cold dry bread. Really, thats it. Where does the BBQ come in? Not one bit spicy. They dont even use garlic. For the price, $20 for a small bowl, forgeddabout it.

Good food and service

Maybe it is not the best in the whole city (but New Orleanians are pretty picky) but we went with a group of 8 seafood lovers and everyone was very pleased!
