Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Is spying really as bad as it sounds? C'mon. They're in your thoughts. You're in their bushes. It evens out.

Hah! You beat me to it, AP... Though this is much better than mine (sigh!).
Seriously, this looks excellent, but it would help if you include a floor plan, because I'm sure not all the features are visible from these pictures.
And I am downloading this (And bulldoze my own, ha ha!).
UPDATE: This plays very well in game, and looks good.
One suggestion, though: you used a great many box hedges, which each have a high polygon count. This will slow the game for many simmers who don't have high end graphics cards. I would delete most, if not all of the hedge fence, along with the lights hidden under the hedges.

sweet layout, excellent use of space, good landscaping, and excellent area for the buggy AI of TS2 to figure a path! *whoohoo!*

Good show AP!! I am downloading this now!

I abosolutely LOVE this restuarant. Unfortunately when I downloaded it, then tried installing it with my Sims2Pack Intaller, it said I didn't have the expansion pack for it. I thought this was a lot that would work for ALL Sims games, including the original?
