“Good fresh food on a nice terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We had a good, well-cooked meal in this pretty restaurant, sitting out on the terrace (pretty wonderful in February if you're form the UK, like us!) The stir fried vegetables were terrific, the wine (a bottle of house red) very reasonably priced and the service attentive and charming. An excellent choice.

“Fresh Tuna Melt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Our first time in the area and walking along the pedestrian path at the beach. We were lucky enough to stumble upon this attractive cafe. We ordered the tuna melt and the "Washington Blvd" burger. Both dishes were awesome. The tuna melt was so good, it just had to be made with fresh tuna and nothing canned. Service was fast and attentive. Loved it!

“The locals favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

When we asked the locals at Marina Del Rey/Venice Beach where to eat they all recommended Terrace Cafe. We ate a dinner and a breakfast meal during our stay. The food was very good and the service was great. You can eat inside or on the patio. The menu has a little bit of everything so everyone was happy. We had fun at the bar with some of the locals. It's right on the beach so the location is great for watching all the Venice Beach action.

“More Than Just Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Picking a restaurant in an area that caters to tourists and sightseers as well as locals can be dicey. So - where to eat among a wide array of restaurants at the end of Washington Boulevard in Venice Beach? Picking a restaurant just steps from the beach seemed almost counter-intuitive, but we did just that and were happy that we did. For starters, The Terrace has a nice look about it and open air tables on it's covered veranda right next to the sidewalk. The menu was wide enough to allow everyone to find something interesting. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was good and we left feeling like we had paid for a decent meal rather than just location or convenience. We would not hesitate to eat here again.
