A long green shrub wall surrounds the terrace sheltered by a large white awning where many flower-pots emphasizing the garden atmosphere. There are various sitting such as tables for two people or for groups, high tables for fast hung service and large armchairs for longer stops.The main idea was to create a homelike cozy space.
