La Terraza Mexican Restaurant has delicious food. The menu has something for everyone. The service was excellent.

Very nice dining room and bar. The food is excellent and fairly high priced but you get great value for your $$$. Great place for a couple looking for a quiet relaxed place with a good view of the pines.

If you're looking for the hole in the wall authentic Mexican restaurant, this is not it, and the prices reflect that. It's more of a dining experience -- atmosphere is a bit classier, art on the walls a bit more refined (no Corona signs), there's...More
