Attractive inside and out. Competent, efficient service. All the food was well-prepared food except my burger (overcooked and dry). I don't think you'll be disappointed. Dinner with two drinks each = $90 (incl tip).

Have eaten there about a dozen times in past year. Always relaxed atmosphere and not hurried, no long waiting and food fresh and tasty.

Located on the property of the El Rancho Best Western Hotel in Milbrae. Decent food and nice surroundings. Service was good. We stay at the hotel when we travel (Park/Sleep/SFO shuttle). The Terrace is good option in an area having numerous food choices.

Convenience of eating a late night snack/dinner at your hotel location. SOOO convenient! We got in late to Best Western and need a bite after a long drive. I had salad and habby had chicken and vegetables. Staff was fantastic even at our late night seating. Drinks not watered down. A nice touch to El Rancho Inn!

We have dined several times throughout the years at the Terrace Cafe. This restaurant is located at the El Rancho Inn. It is not a fancy place, but it is clean, the service is normally quite good, and the food is good as well.

We always enjoy the Terrace Café when we stay at the Best Western El Rancho Inn, Millbrae, CA. The food and service is very good and the café offers room service for the inn. The staff is excellent, kind and helpful. The ambiance is relaxing and a great place to eat when traveling.

Was staying at the BW & popped in for Saturday breakfast. Over all everything pretty good. At 8am, there were plenty of seats, and was seated pretty fast. The only server on was in the kitchen, so I had to wait until he saw me at the podium. The breakfast menu is pretty much the norm, and I ordered coffee,... More
