Que Bo! looks like a mysterious place which replaces the antique house , the original construction of the place. It is a place created and directed by the well-known Chef José Ramón Castillo. The old place used to have two separated areas. One of them had flattened walls and wood floors which were in a good state while the other one had masonry walls and wood floors in a bad shape. Ceiling was the unifying part which had wood beams that belonged to the original building.

Thus the use of wood was kept like the ceiling wood beams too. The modern furniture, the airy shelves or those which had integrated lighting are contemporary elements that make of this place look fresher and attractive. The pendant lighting bulbs that seem to come out of the ceiling wood beams create a special ambiance which makes you even more curious to come in and have a nice coffee and taste a delicious type of chocolate.
