“An wonderful meal and evening San Jose”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

If you enjoy French food, eating slowly and savoring your meal this is the place for you. Patricia and Gerald will spend the night pampering you in their 12 table restaurant. I had the homemade pate and blanquette de veau, it was delicious. My husband had the scallops and the honey basil sauce was amazing! I would go back to San Jose just to eat there again. Thank you Patricia and Gerald for a wonderful evening!

“Make a reservation”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

The restaurant only seats about 12 people so make a reservation or you may have to look elsewhere. Perfect restaurant for couples. I dont usually like meat, this though was tender, fabulous food!

“FABULOUS!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We have been wanting to try La Terrasse for months, but they're always booked out! We finally made reservations two weeks ahead of time and went last Friday for a fabulous dinner. The house was beautiful, the owners were extremely friendly, and the food was fantastic. I had the baked Camembert and duck, my husband had escargot and a seafood medley of some sort. We split a lovely bottle of wine which was recommended. The owner took a picture of us and emailed it to me a few days later, what a lovely thought! I can't wait to go again!

Just a reminder- they only take cash (they take both dollars and colones). This wasn't an issue, but since we normally pay with credit card it was good to know ahead of time to bring cash.

“Very French”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Lovely setting, great service but difficult to find. The food was very good although my salmon was not fresh. But if you are looking for a very nice experience give this place a try. You won't be disappointed.

“A special evening”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

I went with my girl-friend to have dinner for Valentine's day. We were received in a lovely house in Barrio Amon, in a tastefully decorated dining room. The welcome by Gerald and Patricia was warm and personalized. We then enjoyed one of the best meals I have ever had: delicious "escargots" in a succulent sauce aux cepes; a stunning noix de St Jacques in a honey sauce; and delicious chocolate cakes with homemade ice cream. The food was accompanied by a while Bordeaux, also delicious. The atmosphere was quiet and serene, with a soothing music coming from another room... This made my Valentine's celebration very special...
