Fuimos al restaurant para celebrar el fin del año escolar. Fuimos el diecinueve de julio con nuestra profe. En mi opinión la experiencia era bien, me parece que la comida era muy rico. También el servicio era bien porque el camarero era siempre atento. Lo que más me gustó fue la paella de pollo porque ¡disfruté probar nueva comida! Además, nos gustábamos patatas provencales porque eran deliciosos. Me gustaría volver
