Then, it began to lose its splendor until 1992, when it was restored to restore its spirit and prestige.

Today, it maintains much of its interior, which is characterized by the art nouveau style. In addition to offering a unique experience, it hosts art exhibitions and all kinds of cultural events. On their menu, you can find sandwiches, toasts, tapas, salads, hot dishes, and desserts, and they also serve five o’clock tea!
