“Welcoming Cafe - Spectacular View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The town of La Turbie is perched high above Monaco and is famous for the Trophee des Alpes, the Roman triumphal pillar and its spectacular views of Monaco and surrounding area. We had originally intended to eat at the Cafe de La Fontaine on the main street, but after being ignored after being seated, we left there and fortunately found La Terrase. The restaurant is owned by an Australian woman and her French husband therefore you can order in French, English or a combination of both! We just had a basic lunch of baguettes and drinks, but this made no difference to our reception and service. Meals, snacks and drinks are all reasonaby priced and are prepared to a high standard. The actual terrace of the restaurant shares the same spectacular views as the monument and this adds to its ambience and appeal. Well worth a visit.

“Meal with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is an excellent terrace restaurant. The view both down the hills to the sea and over the hills to the blue-grey mountains is five star. And everything else is so well done. Helen Barraja and the staff are charming and wonderful, the food selections and presentation is very fine. It all added up to a leisurely evening meal that is repeatable and memorable.

“Pretty good view and OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a big restaurant next to the school overlooking the Mediterranean. While the view is extraordinary, the food is not quite as amazing as the other restaurants in the immediate area. Service was good and the atmosphere maybe a little bright. The lights from the schools soccer field impede the view a bit at night.
