We had left a little late and arrived after 1 PM, at the museum. So it was lunch time, the crowds had thinned and an outdoor table was secured. A bit chilly, though a sunny day, light sweater weather. Started out with 2 glasses of wine, rose, and still water. She ordered a salad with ham, tomato, mushrooms, seasonal greens,... More

Okay, so I hate leaving bad reviews which is why even my worst reviews are 3 stars... but this is a cafeteria style restaurant located right next to Monet's Gardens. Inside the place there is lots of seating (inside and out) and there is a garden center and another shop in the same building grounds. We went just for coffee... More

We stopped here for coffee after before going in to the museum. Ordered two coffees which were ridiculously expensive and my husband had to complain the mugs were not filled adequately for a 7 euro price tag. He was told not to sit on a table for four despite it being a good half an hour before lunch service. Not... More

Visited the Terra Cafe as it served lunch until 3pm. I had steak which was good but my wife had the seafood salad and she was not happy as the fish was not fresh and neither was the salad. Although we plan to return to Giverny, we will certainly not dine at the Terra Cafe again.

We stopped in for drinks when we first arrived in Giverney after quite a long drive, it was around 11:45 but we only wanted drinks. Our party of 4 consisted of 4 adults, two of whom are over 70. I felt the service we experienced was appalling, told we could only sit in certain seats, made to wait for ages... More

The fish and the children's plate fish were just uneatable: the cheapest driest congelated fish on the market. My steak tartare though was big and nice. The ice cream too!

Asked three times for a bottle of water, which never came. Asked a fourth time.....nothing, got our own out! Another burger was forgotten totally as part... More

Dear madam, Sorry for the poor experience you've had in my restaurant terracafé. We've just opened for the 2016 season and sunday lunch was more crowded than expected. Of course, nothing that happened to you was supposed to happen and, be sure that everything is done not to be in that situation again. Thank you for noticing that you liked... More

After we attended Monet's House And Garden, we were looking for a place to have lunch and walked upon Terre Cafe. Typically touristy, very little atmosphere, service not overly caring. If you want burgers and fries, this is the place. More expensive then it was worth. Wish we chose another cafe as there were many to choose from.

English menu certainly helps. Kids got their burger and ice cream. We got refreshing salad and entree and dessert meal. Reasonably priced. Service is fast.

Terracafé is the restaurant of museum of Impressionnism-Giverny. That's why is gets a special access to the museum. The terrasse, when sun shines, is in the heart of the gardens. The service tries to meet your expectations as far as timing and friendliness. Cuisine ahs a touch of normandy style dishes and offers hamburgers like a tribute to what the Museum was before : American museum for the Arts opened by Daniel Terra.
