This restaurant can stand on its own against most Stateside restaurants. The interior design is above average and inviting, with clever use of live bamboo. The Tuna Tartare was great, as was the orange Cointreau ice cream. The wait service is passable but could improve. As it is summer, the open air feel includes whatever nature dishes out these days --heat. The overhead fans try their best but when the mercury hits 35, it can feel warm.

Missed dining on a finer level? Don your summer dress and hail a tricycle downtown to La Terrasse. The place is very spacious and welcoming. Ceiling fans keep the air cool and the bamboo fences gives a decent privacy from the street. Although the karaoke bar across the street is quite noisy, you can still enjoy a fine dining experience at the said restaurant.

We ordered the ff and they all delighted our palate, try them too:
Crispy Duck Rolls
Tuna Tartare
Mashed Potatoes Gratinee
Dilis fried rice
Beef bulgogi
Halohalo de La Terrasse
Flourless orange cashew cake topped with langka ice cream
Honey-nougat ice cream

Average p400/pax

Tripadvisor had La Terrasse as the highest ranked restaurant in Puerto Princesa, so we had to see what it is all about. After a morning city tour, we asked the tour van to drop us off at La Terrasse rather than the hotel for lunch. This was about 11:30am on a saturday, we were the only people there. Most of the restaurants in Puerto Princessa that people recommend can be classified as restobars so it was nice to walk into a real restaurant space.

After sitting down and taking our order the waitress brought us some complimentary bread sticks with a pesto dipping sauce.

Our appetizer course was smoked duck pate with blini (little russian pancakes). I was really happy with this dish, pretty large serving of pate'. The smoked duck kind of smelled like a Slim Jim, but the flavor was fabulous.

Main #1 - Papatim over rice w/ mushroom and baby corn pork demi. This papatim was moist, flavorful, and super tender. Great dish. But the gravy/demi that came on the side (not pictured) was like crack.. highly addictive except it makes you fat instead of skinny.

Main #2 - Baked squid stuffed with spinach and feta. Perfectly cooked squid, not rubbery. We should have ordered 2 of these.

I must say, tripadvisor reviews were spot on about this place. I don't know if it is the best restaurant in Puerto Princesa, but it was definitely my favorite.
