Therefore, the artworks created for the terrace and at the entrance of the restaurant reflect the villages of France during spring time. It is the time when families travel to new places to discover new local dishes, meet friends and create memories. That is what we wanted to portray in terms of the mood. The colourful furniture instantly makes our guests feel at home.”
