Bonjour, cher Pedro,
Voilà une composition peu ordinaire avec la présence d'un bâtiment ayant pour toiture un sombrero !
De plus, l'architecte qui a conçu ce chapeau a su réaliser une fantaisie et une terrasse.
Bravo !

Hi Pedro,the architecht of this restaurant is a genius...ehehe...what a lovely roof,made in the typical mexican hat form! A perfect choice of point of view from above to show us this strange and lovely thing,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Pedro,
Designed to attract the attention of the passing motorist and it seems to work:-) I like the downward oblique point of view. The sombrero roof sort of mimics the background mountain peaks. Good colours and clarity despite the rather dull light.

Hello Pedro,
A very nice piece of architecture with this large hat on top of the corner of the restaurant. I like the high POV you found which includes a nice view of the mountains in the background.

Ciao Pedro, great view of fantastic and original restaurant, fine details and splendid clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hola Pedro
Superbe l'architecture du restaurant avec le toit en forme de chapeau, c'est original, et je trouve cela très beau,
Belle journée

A restaurant with a Sombrero... what a nice idea, Pedro, and of course - from Mexico.
Nicely presented and shown from a high point.
Buen tardes,
