First, the food: ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! You get to taste not only the great quality of the food and products, but also the particular flavour that the chef Patricia Richter gives to each meal. Im telling u guys - it's magic. The place: It is located in a very old house in downtown San José. They turned it a very comfy... More

Someone mentioned that this restaurant is hard to find. That is true. I know that area quite well but I had never seen the restaurant before and had a little difficulty finding it tonight. But that's fairly typical of San Jose addresses. Apparently taxi drivers do not know it ( based on a couple of conversations we overheard between Gerald... More

This restaurant is, at this time, rated the number one restaurant in San Jose. Don't get me wrong, it IS a very very good place to eat...and the food is very well presented and well prepared. There were a few things, however, that I think could be a bit better to get a higher score. This again depends on what... More

Why go to a restaurant where you have to share space with many other patrons, when you can visit La Terrasse and enjoy of an intimate space and home-made French food? I visited La Terrasse with my sister and mother and all our food selections were simply delicious. The jazz was perfect. The champagne was nice. The prices were reasonable.... More

We were there for dinner (8 adults) and had the place to ourselves. It is a complete experience and not just food. Old remodeled house in barrio Amon converted into a cozy french restaurant where owners cook and serve tables in a warm friendly atmosphere. Very good french cuisine and good value for money. Reservation are a must.

In a nutshell it felt like we were invited over for dinner to our friends beautifully designed home, where Gerald entertained us with stories about France and Costa Rica whilst Patricia worked her magic in the kitchen to prepare an absolutely delicious meal. All this to the sound of Motown classics playing in the background. By far the best meal... More

You truly feel you are welcomed into their home. And it is a home with so much love and soul. The food and wine are absolute quality produce and delicious. The service just could not be better. We ate here on our last night in Costa Rica and i wish I had anther chance to visit again.
