“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Parked in the public parking that is right next to the "La Terrasse" restaurant. As we were walking by we noticed that they had a special of the day. So we decided to stop in. Ask to sit in the back of the restaurant outside because the view there is fantastic. The menu price is in very reasonable and the food was fantastic. Jacques who is the owner speaks several languages and takes great pride to lend you his "satellite phone" at no cost to you so that you can call back to the USA to wake your loved ones to say hello.

“Hospitality outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

My wife and I and another couple had gone to La Terrasse for lunch only to be told that the restaurant was expecting a tour busload of hungry travelers at any minute and there was, regretfully, no room in the restaurant for us. The owner, Jacques, was extremely sorry that he couldn't accomodate us but he told us this as nicely as possible. I chatted with him on the way out the door and he asked where we came from. I told him that we lived in Seattle and he said that he liked that area of the US very much. As I turned to leave, he said, "Wait a minute, I will make room for you." And he did. We were seated just as the resaurant was filling up with travelers from the tour bus. Despite now having a table, we were concerned that our service would be eclipsed by the larger group. That thought couldn't have been further from the truth as we were served our wine and food promptly and well in advance of the large group.

Jacques' wife, Helen, served us and took the time to welcome us and tell us a little about the story of how she and Jacques met and wound up in La Turbie, all this despite the fact that the resaurant was packed. The food was remarkable, the service spectacular and Helen and Jacques made us feel very welcome indeed...true French hospitality.

We will definitely return to La Terrasse again. Thanks to Jacques and Helen for making the lunch memorable!!!!

“Terrific!! We had wonderful meal in a wonderful setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stumbled across the great spot after a day in Monaco. Our table had a beautiful view and the meal was excellent. The owner/chef took a few minutes to visit with us along with some others who were enjoying their meals. La Terrasse is a great location for families or for a romantic night out.

“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.
