Six of us had dinner here. We were greeted warmly by the hostess, who took our coats and led us to a table. Two other people attended to us. We ordered a bottle of Chateauneuf Pape (a red from the Rhône area; at $65, seemed reasonable, though it disappointed a bit). We all ordered from the Twilight menu (prix fixe).
Three of us ordered the Pâté du jour, a generous helping of goose liver mousse, served with gherkins, tomato wedges and toast slices; others ordered the soupe du jour tasting (3 small helpings of different soups), the mussels (very garlicky), and a mushroom pastry. For entrees we ordered a shishkebab special (nothing special), a duck breast, and the broiled lamb chops. For desserts we ordered chocolate truffle cake and chocolate mousse.
Overall the dinner was very pleasant, the food good, the atmosphere delightful. This is an old-fashioned restaurant in a good sense of the term: carpeted, small wine glasses, intimate. Dinner for six totaled $340, which is quite reasonable.
I recommend going to La Baraka for a pleasant meal.
