A warm summer evening, not many customers, nouveau French - Portuguese. Small family run restaurant, everything fresh and handmade. Everything was so delicious. Also a nice little comkunity. Clearly one of the most undiscovered places in Oregon. We had a gourmet dinner in a French style country house. Try to eat everything!

January at the Oregon coast may not be to everyone's taste but the Terra Cotta Cafe should be. The Terra Cotta Cafe is a lovely experience. To begin, the atmosphere is our idea of perfect, softly lit with a rosy glow, quiet but not uncomfortable, flowers on a table by a window--simply lovely, but not stuffy. You can dress casually...

Four of us ate breakfast on Saturday morning after Thanksgiving and a relaxing stay at Manzanita over the holiday. Pleasant young gentleman served us and kept the tasty coffee coming. The French toast is awesome and the bacon just right. Warm atmosphere with a heating stove to keep the cold away.

We were looking for a place to have our Thanksgiving dinner and the Terra Cotta Cafe was perfect. Lovely intimate atmosphere, excellent service, and homemade traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. If we are in Manzanita next year for Thanksgiving we'll definitely be back.

We had dinner with friends last night, our first time there. When I called to make the reservation the first impression was nice. Harvey (the Owner) took my reservation and was very pleasant and accommodating. Harvey and the waitress welcomed us with smiles, explained their specials for the evening and gave us a very informative overview of the menu, appetizers,... More

Some creativity with unique appetizer (plums). Good wine choices, hubby had stuffed chicken and thought was tasty, not over the top awesome, but good! Had the shrimp skewer, nice presentation with dipping sauce choices (esp. like the "Sandy's tennis shoe sauce"...good enough to make even a tennis shoe taste good!). Would go there again :)

Had a nice dinner here with friends on a Tuesday evening in October. Since this was a weeknight in off season, we were the only diners at 6pm. The service was great although that should be expected when you're the only table with guests. All the food was excellent, from the bread sticks, soup, entrees, and dessert from their large... More

People, food, menu, specials. Just amazing - it is a white linen quality where you can "come as you are".

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Terra Cotta. The fish, cooked in parchment paper, was excellent and the staff were great. A nice choice.

So here is the deal. We have had a place in Manzanita since 1998. On many occasions (I mean like 10!) we tried to go. They were closed; they were full; they didn't have a table for 4; they wouldn't allow my underage kids in; it was to close to closing time; etc. It seriously got to the point of... More
