While waiting to have lunch at the rooftop restaurant at the Hotel Spendide, I noticed the mosaic artwork in the lobby and was surprised to see they offer an art deco mosaic “guided tour.”
As we ascended to the 8th floor restaurant, L’essenciel, I was anticipating rooftop views, but still, it took my breath away. As we drank “une coupe de champagne” and snacked on crackers, a huge “goeland” (sea gull) swooped down to have a snack, as well, then posted him/herself on a nearby post to watch us.
As for lunch, we had a lovely view while dining among a large group of friends and new acquaintances. The three course meal, with aperos, wine, and sparkling water, was 56 Euros per person.
