Recommendation for Amelie's French/Italian Bistro, restaurant

Just back from the new restaurant Amelie's on César Andrade y Cordero (2 names for 1 street). This is the street that goes up to San Juan de Balzay. The restaurant is well marked on the right side going up from Ordóñez Lasso. It is an Italian/French Bistro. 

We had the sampler for 2 which included way too much food $15. We started with a cup of thick carrot soup seasoned w/ ginger and curry, and 4 different tea sandwiches - egg salad w/ asparagus, salmon w/ cream cheese (my favorite), chicken w/ capers (oh my) and ham and cheese. Then we had a rich toasted cheesy ham sandwich w/ bechamel sauce and Dijon mustard. Wow. Next came a slice of quiche with ham and bacon in a flaky crust. By this time, we could hardly eat the bolognese w/ ground beef and pieces of bacon in tomato sauce. We ended the fabulously delicious meal eating a piece of cheesecake made with ricotta cheese. 

We sat in the front room with a view of the street and the mountains. Qué vista! Louis serves beer and wine at Amelie's. Please visit. They are open on Thursday and Friday, 11 AM to 2:30-ish and dinner begins at 4 PM. 099 524 1088

Bus 50 stops directly in front of the restaurant. Excellent.
