Jonny Palm is branching out in the restaurant business with a new restaurant: Dine on the Pond. Where others saw a beautiful pond and garden, Jonny saw the opportunity to give tourists to Sim Tropez a unique dining experience. Jonny contacted the best contractor he knew (well, the only contractor he knew) in order to build his restaurant over the pond. He brought in the island's best landscaper. He called in the best chef straight from Bali. No expense was spared in allowing customers to "dine on the pond." The bar is fully stocked and guests can listen to music while they eat and drink. After dinner, guests can walk out onto the overlook to enjoy the beauty of the garden, or have a nice dance with their loved one as the sun sets over Sim Tropez. Jonny (and his builder) sincerely hopes that his customers, and the Wanderlust committee, appreciate the beauty of Dine on the Pond.

So, after a lot of searching and going back and forth with theme and what sort of food lot to build, I stumbled onto this photo on google image search. There were other inspiration photos, but no matter what I looked at the open-to-the-outside eating areas and the ceiling beams kept turning up. Open dining was always a priority. So, I started with that, and worked from there.
*A note about my photos - certain overhead photos have palms missing. These were taken out for photos. They were replaced.
As for what CC was used in creating this lot (kept this list short just so it would be short when I wrote it):
