My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. There is no menu translated to English and only one of four wait staff who knew English. We muddled through and took some chances. Our favorite entree was Grosse ravioli an open ravioli topped with...More

Coulon is very busy in July & August, all restaurants have many customers. The Central is a more up market eatery, reflected in the prices, however the food is excellent and worth the cost. We had booked in advance, which was as well as the...More
