I am sure the restaurant is gorgeous, but I am not so sure about the food...

Beautiful. I haven't visited your blog in a while, so I looked back for a week or so and saw some wonderful photos. Good work.

It looks like it should be in a church or palace but a restaurant---well ok .

Lois Anne would love this place because of the paintings and because it is a vegetarian restaurant!

The paintings are wonderful but unexpected in a restaurant.

Where did they find time to decorate like this in 18th century???
Ahh, they did not have internet.

So even your restaurants have art in them! I think I might just sit and stare rather than eat!

I can't imagine a restaurant with such a ceiling! It's incredible. Loved your photos from England too. I envy your ability to make these travel dreams come true. It is no small undertaking!

I quite like this ... quite simple in its own ornate way.

Kate said...

The colours and the design are lovely, soft, and so artistically created. I like the way you hung the chandelier amid such beauty.
