Louisiana, especially the city of New Orleans, is known around the world for its incredible restaurants and unique cuisine. But not all of Louisiana's best restaurants are in New Orleans. The following are five mouthwatering restaurants you can enjoy without having to enter the city.

La Provence -- Lacombe

Restaurateur John Besh is known for his award-winning restaurants in the city, but La Provence is one of his best fine dining establishments. Cruise over to Lacombe to try Besh's country-style fine dining experience.

Mosca's -- Avondale

Avondale may not be far from NOLA, but the first-class Italian eats will make you feel light years away. This historic restaurant has been around for roughly 70 years serving up some of the best Italian food in all of Louisiana.

Middendorf's -- Manchac

Middendorf's has been destroyed by hurricanes and rebuilt a number of times, but that hasn't affected the world-class cuisine. The unique location between Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas is a huge perk if you're an avid boater, but the crispy fried catfish and other southern seafood treats are where Middendorf's great reputation comes from.

Lafitte's Landing at Bittersweet Plantation -- Donaldsonville

The chef at Lafitte's Landing, John Folse, is world-renowned for his popular cookbook After the Hunt. "The Landing" offers Folse's world-class Cajun country cuisine outside of the hustle and bustle of NOLA.

Cafe Des Amis -- Breaux Bridge

No RV trip to Louisiana is complete without a taste of crawfish, and there's no better place to get it than Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge. The Cajun cuisine at this famous restaurant is to die for, but the live Acadian music adds a fun and unique flair that shouldn't be missed. If you want the full Cajun experience outside of the city, the Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge will certainly deliver.
