In the mood for something lighter than traditional fare, we thought we'd give Balkan cuisine a try. On the menu are a variety of appetizers, grilled meats, seafood, and about dozen pasta dishes. After their high-protein diet of the past few days, the kids were all about pasta.
Pasta servings are generous at Gitanes, and two children easily split a single dish (~US$10). They chose the fettuccine with lamb and vegetables, which turned out to be green beans. The paella for two was moist and tasty, with mussels, clams, chicken, and tiny scallops. The fact that it served on a platter instead of from a paella pan was a minor detraction, but I did prefer the moistness of this paella vs. the one from the Little Whale (though I liked the inclusion of sausage at LW).
Overall, we felt the food was a very good value, though the price for a bottle of sparkling water was a tad steep, around Cz150 (US$7+). Atmosphere was folksy and warm. Service was friendly and attentive.
