It was a neat idea to build the bench into the wall.

Are you sure this restaurant is in Oeiras? I would have thought it's in heaven! Ah, but maybe Oeiras is heaven?!

The earth tones really accentuate this shot. How's the food?

Oh boy, would Lois Anne, being a vegetarian, like that place...and it looks like you're in the middle of a jungle...

Love the colors, too. Another nice job, JM.

Is it a kind of restaurant where we can pick the veggie and have the chef cooks it for us? Cool name...

Wonderful approach to the restaurant.

Jarart said...

That sounds like my kind of place! So pretty with all the plants and the heavenly blue wall and brick under foot.

Lois said...

I like the colors they used. They really brighten it up!

Nice place for a restaurant :)

That is the chicken said...

This is beautiful...I love that blue colour in sunlit countries...it just looks cold where I live! This is a very inviting bench!

Such a wonderful blue colour. I'd love to sit on that bench with an appetizer to a vegan menu.

Really nice place for a vegan restaurant since it looks like nature is taking over it :)

Interesting juxtaposition of old with a fresh coat of paint.

Beautiful little nook.

JM, the menorah (like was in the ancient Temple in Jerusalem) has seven arms. The chanukiya is lit on the festival of Chanuka and has nine arms. They have separate names in Hebrew. But in English they both tend to be called menorah, hence the confusion.
