Behind a freestanding facade (the remains of a burned-out historic building) is one of the best alfresco dining areas in the city. Like an enchanted forest, the tree-shaded terrace draws crowds to sip strawberry-infused Caipi-Saké or glasses of Kir Royal. The patio tables fill up quickly, but a huge glass wall looking out onto the patio and sidewalk lets diners inside feel like they're outdoors, too. The cheese menu focuses on local offerings and the market-fresh classics, from tartare to duck, fish, and lamb, are extensive. There's even a vegan plate on the menu. Note that children and minors are not allowed to dine in the restaurant, although they're allowed on the terrace if accompanied by an adult. Hours are more limited in the winter months.

Location not great but one of the best Terrasse's in the city. Hard to find a better outdoor setting in the summer to eat in this city. Food is fine, you won't be disappointed but there is better. Service is great too but this place is all about the vibe in the summer. If it isn't patio weather, go somewhere else.
