Can someone explain this reservation website to me?

We're thinking of being brave and going for dinner on 12/24 or 12/25 at 58 Tour Eiffel. I'm not expecting anything fabulous, but I hope it will be an experience we will all remember, particularly our 8 year old. It's possible to make reservations on line, but once I've given them my date and time, I get to this page

They seem to be suggesting that we pick a menu and pay for dinner even before we've arrived. Are they kidding? How are we supposed to know now what we'll want to eat then? And should I assume the 20 euro charge for a la carte goes towards the actual cost of dinner or is that some kind of fee before we've eaten anything? What if we pick 2 ALC meals and a children's meal and then get there and realize we prefer to order differently?
