“AMAZINGLY PERFECT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This has to be the best restaurant we've been in during our entire 2weeks stay in the entire Puerto Princesa. I'm not exaggerating. I've always been a fan of minimal art. Their service is just so worth of all the compliments. Up for a romantic dinner? This is the place to be. They have lots of wine to choose from plus their pasta and home-baked breads are the best. Italian and Japanese-fused meals are so cool and new to my tongue so I was thrilled to taste their pasta and the ordinary OJ -- where they made it extraordinary! Might take some time for orders to be done, but we all know how long it takes for a piece of art to be served. ;)

“Good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

The ambience of La Terrasse is modern minimal, well done, with great colors though better or more artwork on the big walls would make this great space better. I am sure this being worked on. The chef provided a personal recommendation of the best food on the menu. The wait staff is very nice and attentive.
The deconstructed adodo needs some punch, it comes out as bland. It needs a stronger kick and has a great potential to be a highlight dish. The shrimp dish needs to be re-assessed. Though the bulgogi dish is good.
The dessert is another story. Its fabulous. The cassava cake was custard-like, baked on banana leaves and its tasty and amazing. The same with the coconut themed halo-halo was tasty. The home made ice cream was intense and delish.

We tried some resto in Puerto before founding this one, strangely as it was the closer one to our hotel :). We regreted not eating here more often. Very elegant, and very tasty.
