My husband and I were fortunate enough to book a table at La Terrasse for New Years dinner.

The restaurant itself is quite unique. Run by a husband and wife team, we were welcomed at the front door and shown to our table in the dining room of the house. The 6 tables were occupied and it soon became clear why it is not easy to get a booking. It is like being invited to eat the best food in someone’s home.

Each course was served on carefully selected crockery.

The food was sensational.

The warm ambience and intimate atmosphere was enhanced by the chef, Patricia coming out of the kitchen to greet the guests.

Just a note- the restaurant was difficult to find. Make sure that your taxi driver knows exactly where to go before you set off.

Amazing decor, attention to details, great food. Chef Patricia and her partner really make you welcome in their house, which makes it an even more special occasion. Definitely it must not be missed!

My wife and I invited two other couples to help us celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary at La Terrasse. Our friends couldn't believe that the restaurant existed. It is small: about 6 tables. The owners are a couple . She is the shy chef and he is the outgoing host.
The menu is small: That night 8 choices were offered. Amongst us we chose 4 different plates and enjoyed exquisite French gourmet cuisine.

We fell into temptation to order three different desserts and shared them to be able to taste the great flavors. Since we were a large froup they closed the restaurant to other guests that night (a Tuesday) after we made our reservations. The old restored house where the restaurant is set is a great place to reminice and take it easy. We have reccomended La Terrasse to our best friends and they agree with us. It is excellent food and great surroundings.

Service and ambience were very special. The fixed menu offered two interesting alternatives, although portions were a bit small for the price paid (french cuisine to the core).
