When did Roberto's get a makeover?



The floor plan is much better than the last time I was here in late summer. They added an entrance, waiting area and redid the bar where it can be found.

I remember when it was The Cafe and they sold $1 fishbowls. It was a great dive bar with a pool table and a great jukebox

I like this place but have a tough time getting my wife to go because she doesn't like the rustic smell of the place. Did they fix this, if so, I might go tomorrow.

I am the wrong person to ask my sense of smell is not very good, but that spicy shrimp in the bread bowl I just ate is...

I like it. I just head down Bayou Paul Road and I'm there. It's above average and a decent wine list. Also a $5.00 corkage fee so bring your own. Nice fish and duck. He remodeled about four months ago. No idea on a partner.

It appears that the remodel has almost doubled the number of tables. I had the fish special which was a nice sized piece of Chilean sea bass over a lobster fritter with a saffron sauce. I thought it was very good.

My wife had the stuffed fish of the day which was flounder.

I think the food is very good for the Baton Rouge area, not top end, but much better than out normal dinner at Red Lobster.

Coulee is a French term for naturally occurring or manmade drainage canals(aka creeks) in south Louisiana.

Partner is a younger chef who used to be the Executive Chef at Mansurs almost 6 years ago or so. His sister-in-law is also helping over there as well in the front of the house.

I might know someone who does some consulting work on the side to help fine tune certain selections. Of course Im not sure they could afford the full-time position though

Well I asked a stupid question. I'm not too far from Bayou Paul Road myself and I bought 4 acres on it last year. Cool place back in there.

I guess I didn't want to give the exact street.

Yes, it is a very nice area back there.
