Robin's

1409 Henderson Highway, Henderson, LA - (337) 228-7594

"I have been a regular at Robin's every spring for almost 20 years. It never disappoints. While I can't say no one equals their crawfish etouffee or bisque, I can say I've never had better - and I've tried almost every place of note in southwest Louisiana at one time ..."   [Read More]

Lionel Robin has perfected the preparation of crawfish etoufee to the extent that he sells it canned or frozen, ready to go. While it isn't the same as dining here, it's pretty darn spectacular.

A glorious sight in Robin's kitchen was this giant vat of local crawfish, ready to be made into etouffee.

Lionel Robin is understandably proud of his homemade ice cream.  Clockwise from left: vanilla, coconut, Tabasco, and fig.  Three of us voted the vanilla the best, the other thought coconut was tops.  Truthfully, all were excellent!

In the heart of crawfish country, Robin's is the one restaurant to visit if you want to taste the best.
