Restaurant at the Lake
...or "Ristorante sul lago" (hope that's correct) since it's an Italian restaurant. At any rate, it's got a terrace out on the water.
About this creation
If MOCpages still haven't recovered from their image disk problems, please see the photos here on flickr!

Finally I got to finish this restaurant, part of which I already showed quite some time ago, take pictures, and finally upload them...

This is the other side:



You know, there was (maybe still is) a restaurant design – featuring big arched windows and a tower, mostly a corner building – floating around at least on German ebay in various incarnations, many, dare I say, in rather ugly colors. I got one of the prettier ones at a decent price some time ago, modified it to comply with the Café Corner standards and put it on a corner. But I didn't like it there very much, so when I got the idea to have a lakeside restaurant, I took parts of it for this building, mostly the arched windows, the interior, and the idea of a tower.

I'm still not completely satisfied with parts of the wall, but I'll leave it at that for now until I get better ideas...

A few detail shots:








The canoe is from the Log Cabin set, by the way.





The front windows...

On to the interior, ground floor:





Upper floor with kitchen:





Attic: Only storage space:



That's it!

Thanks everyone! — Nick, the way the big windows open is taken from the original set from ebay and not my idea; don't know whom to give credit for that...

Nice use of the Italian colors. Great interior and many details - my favorite: sidewalk constriction.

Eye Candy!!! I love all the details my favorite ones were: The men installing the sidewalk!!! and The way the window opens up, Loved the bathroom nestled behind the stairs and the walk up ice cream window and the welcoming main entrance! Bravo! I'll take the vitello scalopine con rigatoni ed un'ensalada de pomadoro ed vino tinto ed force un cannoloni per postre!
