La Terrasse is one of a kind restaurant, at least in San Jose, where you would rarely find a place like this.
Chef Patrice cooks everything from her home kitchen and her husband attends the 10 people they receive per night.
Food is Classic French with a twist, beautiful presentation and generous portions are accompanied by very reasonable prices.
The $30 tasting menu is a great choice.
Reservations a must.

This is a unique restaurant for San Jose. Run by a French husband/wife team. She cooks, he runs the tables, of which there are only four, in the first floor of their house. Our reservation was early (7:00pm) so we were the only ones there when we arrived. Wonderful personal attention, great food with fresh ingredients, and a wide choice of French style preparations. Short wine list, but the recommendation was excellent and not too pricey. If you are up for something completely different in San Jose, this is the place to go. Book early.

The restaurant is one of a kind as the entire experience is unique. This is a must for tourists and locals. To start, the restaurant is located around beautiful neighborhoods such as Barrio Amon. The place is beautifully decorated and is recommended to those who love to share a great dinner with special people in a very intimate atmosphere. Take into account that reservation is required, specially if you consider that the max. capacity is 12 people. This gives you an idea how personalized is the experience as the owners, Patricia and Gerald share time with those willing to taste real French cuisine. The wine selection is great and the menu provides several options in between appetizers, main dishes and desserts. I recommend checking the restaurant's site in advance, to facilitate your decision on what to taste! I have to admit that I have tried French restaurants in the past, but never had dishes with such great taste, presentation, and amazing atmosphere!

this very small, ten seat, husband and wife owned and operated restaurant offers a unique dining experience that is not available anywhere else in costa rica. from the very private entrance to the intimate atmosphere, from gerald's pampering to patricia's immaculate presentation and delicately prepared plates you will not be disappointed.
