Our Story

Royal House's historic building, over 100 years old, began as the residence of the Tortorici family. They converted the first floor into a café, which later developed into a thriving restaurant, Tortorici’s. It became the fourth-longest running restaurant in the French Quarter, after its fellow New Orleans icons: Galatoire’s, Brennan’s and Antoine’s. In 2008, the restaurant was revitalized and restored under new ownership to become the new Royal House Oyster Bar and Seafood Restaurant.

Dine with us to explore the authentic, local cuisine we have to offer. Contact us by calling (504) 528-2601 for more information, or come see us at 441 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.
