We attended as a group for a professional get-together. So there was no formal dinner - we ordered pizzas and drinks, mainly. The waiter was extremely patient with our varied orders, and the fact that we needed to pull several tables together. A couple of us ordered a fruit salad, which was excellent and simple: just papaya and pineapple.

And delicious food too. The service was quick, I guess you don't see time flying when you're having a good time with friends. The only problem I had was the temperature at night. Since it's an open space building, it gets pretty cold at dusk. Bring a shawl or a jacket...

I've eaten numerous times at la Terrasse and have seldom been disappointed. First of all, unlike other good places with bad opening hours, la Terrasse is ALWAYS open and can serve you food no hassle. The location is quite tranquil and pleasant, never too crowded. The menu is diverse and value is normal. The Cameroonian specialties, in particular Ndole, are... More

We have been 3 times to La Terrasse and have been very impressed with this restaurant on each visit. The decor is very nice and simple, it's quiet (no television!), the service is fast and friendly, and the food is excellent. We particularly recommend the "viande au pierre chaud" - you cook your own pieces of fillet de boeuf and... More

Ok experience! However as much as you hear about the place my expectations were higher. For yaounde though it was pleasant. Staff does need hospitality lessons and a proper mixologist

Good food but expensive as are all the restaurants with "western food" in Younde. I would recommend, but not until one has visited higher rated places.

The place is a bit small, but services a nice breakfast if you're tired of the poor breakfast in your hotel. Good pizzas also. The terrace is just a quiet place to lounge though the chairs are not very comfortable

The restaurant isn't one of the most popular places in town. A pity, because the food is good and prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is cosy, the whole setting tasteful and in it's bareness almost stylish, the background music - Swing! - different to what or who else is serving food in town. You... More
