We wanted to go back to Esmeralda because we had the memory of a nice and romantic moment with fine cuisine in that place in the good old times...
We made a reservation by phone for the dinner on Sunday evening during Easter hollidays last week but when we arrived there was absolutely no table reserved for us. The lady in charge told us that we should understand the situtation given the crowding of the restaurant during hollidays. There was a free and nice round table for 4 persons but we could not get it. The lady wanted to seat us at a large table (oversized distance between guests) for 4 in the middle of the restaurant, a table not set at all and a kind of large table designed for "table d'hotes" rather than for a romantic dinner.... Finally, the lady made 2 persons (friends of her probably ?) move to another table saying that they were expecting 2 other friends .. .(why didn't they sit at the round table from the start of their dinner ?). The main problem and the reason why we quit this restaurant was that the lady in charge never apologized and rather behave in the opposite way blaming us for not considering the situation.
In conclusions, do not waste time making reservation , you are dealing with unprofessional management as far as reservations are concerned! In addition, be ready to pay a lot for the atmosphere of a busy canteen full of noise during hollidays.
