“Best meal we had”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

This was the finest meal we had on the island. The Terrace has a lovely setting, and presents a restful and gracious reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay. It is intimate,, and its food is wonderful. We had a ceviche and then tuna and we would heartily recommend any fish dish based on these. Not to be missed

“Just made second reservation!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Can't remember going to the same restaurant twice during a one week vacation, but we definitely wanted to return to the Terrace! Great outside but sheltered seating, service friendly and professional, and the food was fabulous! Dessert first.... The apple chevret cheesecake with caramel was absolutely one of the best desserts we've ever tasted! My rack of lamb and risotto delicious, wife's Mahi Mahi was perfect, and yes my starter of oysters Rockefeller and wife's frisée salad were scrumptious.

This restaurant is on par with the best we've visited in Philadelphia and New York, not cheap, but first class fare and value, loved it!

“Great location, great food”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

My 13th visit to the island and been to this spot as it changed hands iver the years. This new owner/ chef will not disappoint. My husband and I went here for our anniversary last Saturday and had a great experience. He had the Caribbean lobster tail- only one bad bite. I had the filet- perfectly cooked and tasty accompaniments. Oysters Rockefeller and bottle of Domaine carneros were added treats. Service was great. A little disappointed in the dessert offerings but we will go back on a future visit to the Island.

“Make sure you confirm an outside table”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The food was above average, not excellent. The service was great except for the host that sat us, who when told we preferred regular water immediately sent out expensive bottled water. But the decor can be a disappointment. The website and even the name, highlights the waterfront location, outdoor eating, and views. But we were assigned an indoor table which was rather drab concrete. Make sure you are guaranteed an outdoor table, otherwise it really isn't worth the price.
