    Re: a long distance from the city.

    I would RK it by indicating that "that" and "is" are understood.

    Muchas Gracias, senior Antonson!

    This is what I think:

    It was a restaurant (which was) (at) a long distance from the city.

    Almost the same as your, bar the implied preposition.

    I agree with your implied preposition.
