I have lived in San Diego for years but just discovered this restaurant. It's hidden @ the University of San Diego. First of all it's very elegant and yet very reasonable. They offer both buffet and sit down lunches. They don't serve alcohol at lunch but do after 5 PM. The views of the canyon and the Mediterranean architecture make this dining room very appealing. I had the halibut which was attractively presented with colorful vegetables. My guests had French dip and a Cobb salad which they both enjoyed. Apparently the buffet at lunch is primarily vegan and looked inviting with creme brulee desserts etc. @ $12.95. I will certainly return to try their dinner menu. Valet parking is complimentary @ lunch, another plus.

Friends invited me to dinner and told that they were going to treat me to a wonderful meal at a beautiful restaurant that was as special as a hidden gem on the USD campus. I was pleasantly surprised when we entered La Gran Terraza which I would not have found on the USD campus had I not been with my friends. I was even more amazed and pleased with the courteous and fast service we received from our waiter, as well as the excellently prepared and delicious appetizer, entree, dessert and glass of house wine that were included with each dinner. What a great deal!

What a surprise to find a first class restaurant at the University of San Diego in the Linda Vista area of San Diego!!!!! Who would know it's there!!! I sure didn't and I've been living essentially within walking distance of it for several years. If I hadn't seen a billboard on Linda Vista Rd. advertising it, I never would have known. I would describe the food as California cuisine with a continental twist. Truly outstanding food!!! The dining room is very tastefully decorated, the temperature was perfect, nice background music, and then be sure to have Josh wait on you!!! Hope to go back soon!
