Could someone explain to me how a restaurant can be in a square, I thought a square was an open space in a town or city? So at the square would make more sense wouldn't it?

Perhaps it’s an open-air restaurant in the square, only operating during the summer? (In English, I’d tend to use “on the square” in the sense of “on the other side of one of the square’s boundary streets”.)

To me a square includes the shops surrounding it, I have heard 'in the Square' used a lot, but don't really here 'at the Square'.
