2 dinners - delicious, romantic and unfussy...possible?

Hounds, you have never let me down and I need your help again!
My girlfriend and I are off to Paris for a romantic three days over Christmas. We have three dinners (leaving lunch to whatever takes our fancy) and we will see the Moulin Rouge on our last night so we will settle for a nice bistro on Monte Marte for that. Thus, I am left with two dinners to plan - Christmas Eve and Christmas Night. Please help!

To set the scene: We are both mid-late 20's (ok perhaps pushing the far end of the late 20's!) and really want a romantic, modern, unfussy, restaurant budgeting about 100-150Eur pp per night.

Night 1: We are staying on Place des Vosges and arrive late'ish on Christmas eve so I thought that Le Dome du Marais could be convenient and tasty for first night. Any thoughts?

Night 2: Christmas Dinner I was thinking either Les Bouquinistes or Gordon Ramsay's Le Veranda.

Ideally I would love to take us to Guy Savoy but it just stretches the budget too far (unless it is so highly recommended that we cheap eat on Christmas Eve and go here for Christmas Day/Dinner). If Christmas Dinner isn't usually available I would be grateful for any Christmas Lunch recommendations.

Many thanks in advance for any comments on the above or any recommendations you may have. Lots of useful information on here!
