We had heard of this restaurant and, when we arrived, we let the maitre'd advise us. Both very good choices: the monkfish was spectacular, as were the snails (in season) and squid with foie gras and caramelized onions. All washed down with white wine, a Riesling and Verdejo blend, which went well with the food and with the elaborate desserts. If you finish the afternoon with a trip to the spa, you will sleep like a baby.
