“THE CHARM OF GERALD AND THE FLAVOR OF PATRICIA”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

this very small, ten seat, husband and wife owned and operated restaurant offers a unique dining experience that is not available anywhere else in costa rica. from the very private entrance to the intimate atmosphere, from gerald's pampering to patricia's immaculate presentation and delicately prepared plates you will not be disappointed.

“An wonderful meal and evening San Jose”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

If you enjoy French food, eating slowly and savoring your meal this is the place for you. Patricia and Gerald will spend the night pampering you in their 12 table restaurant. I had the homemade pate and blanquette de veau, it was delicious. My husband had the scallops and the honey basil sauce was amazing! I would go back to San Jose just to eat there again. Thank you Patricia and Gerald for a wonderful evening!

“Make a reservation”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant only seats about 12 people so make a reservation or you may have to look elsewhere. Perfect restaurant for couples. I dont usually like meat, this though was tender, fabulous food!

“FABULOUS!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We have been wanting to try La Terrasse for months, but they're always booked out! We finally made reservations two weeks ahead of time and went last Friday for a fabulous dinner. The house was beautiful, the owners were extremely friendly, and the food was fantastic. I had the baked Camembert and duck, my husband had escargot and a seafood medley of some sort. We split a lovely bottle of wine which was recommended. The owner took a picture of us and emailed it to me a few days later, what a lovely thought! I can't wait to go again!

Just a reminder- they only take cash (they take both dollars and colones). This wasn't an issue, but since we normally pay with credit card it was good to know ahead of time to bring cash.

“Very French”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Lovely setting, great service but difficult to find. The food was very good although my salmon was not fresh. But if you are looking for a very nice experience give this place a try. You won't be disappointed.
