First, it's easy to spend a lot of money here, but you can also eat more economically than we did! The menu is in French, Spanish and English and has a wonderful variety of options. For appetizers the four of us ordered to share a mixed green salad, escargot and mussels (in a butter and bread crumb mixture). All were delicious. Two of us ordered Filet Mignon which was outstanding. Another ordered snails in a puff pastry and the other ordered Chicken Cordone Bleu which were equally delicious. There's an extensive (and expensive) wine list. We all had different deserts and each one was very good. The service here is outstanding.
The dining room is very small and divided into two sections. The front section is a little more spacious and enjoys a view of the street and has better circulation. The back section shares a space with the kitchen.
There are lots of hard surfaces in this restaurant, and because the place is small, just the conversation from the patrons makes the place a little noisy. The noise level is made worse because the restaurant allows musicians to come in. The night were were there, a 3-man trio with guitars came in. A table of tourists paid them to play two songs and they were horrible. The one who sang had a terrible voice. Later on, a young man with an accordion came in, sat down, and proceeded to play it badly and loudly for 20 minutes, during which time we had to stop conversing because we couldn't hear each other. When he finished, he proceeded to go to each table asking for a gratuity. We talked to the manager and suggested that the itinerant musicians did not add value to the dining experience, and in fact -- detracted from it.
To give you an idea of cost, we had two appetizers, two filet mignon, two deserts, a bottle of Argentinian Malbec, and two cognacs. The bill, with a 15% tip, came to about U.S. $160
