The northern gateway into Lafayette is the crossroads of I-10 and I-49. Instead of hurrying to your next destination, emulate the Cajuns and slow down to savor one more meal. A dining destination since 1980, Prejean’s embodies the Cajun joie de vivre, with its dancing, live music, and down-home cooking. The atmosphere feels like a friendly fish camp, with rustic wood and even a 14-foot stuffed alligator named Big Al. Romacelli, with three popular locations, serves authentic Italian-Mediterranean cuisine and offers great wine specials in the beautiful community of Couret Farms. Upper Lafayette is also home to The Wetlands Golf Course, an 18-hole public course with pro shop and onsite restaurant.
