The ambiance is beautiful and inviting.

This is french dining at its best. We had the pork, fish and
a vegetarian eggplant. The pork was tender and came with a
beautiful sauce. The fish was fresh and flaky. The eggplant looked
like a vegetarian lasagna and was very good too!

Service was excellent. Prices are what one should expect for a great
dining experience.

This restaurant is on my must visit list in Costa Rica. It's a small French restaurant with an intimate atmosphere in the Barrio Otoya section of San Jose. The quality and variety of food is superb at a reasonable price. In addition to offering their guests a first-rate dining experience, Chef Patricia Richer and her husband Gerard make you feel at home. Remember to make a reservation

We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant during our trip to Costa Rica. The food was great. It is truly French. Service is good. The atmosphere is very pleasant and relazing. The local products are well presented.

La Terrasse is the best value/quality French cuisine in San Jose in a very nicely set up house - they are way less than the other French Restaurant's for equal or better quality - try the authentic onion soup, the veal stew was sensational, country style pate, camarones were delicious and the wine list while limited was sufficient and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back on our next visit!!!
