We ate here on our last night of our week's vacation. Freshly caught tuna was expertly prepared to create the best meal I had on the island the entire week. Outstanding mixed drinks and a great wine list. Highly recommended.

Terrace gave us a full, high-quality meal after several days of airport/bar food, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Service was very good, and the menu has options for almost any style of eater. We’ll go back.
