About Us

The creators of Restaurant Coco Loco and Catering Costa  present Terrazas.

Terrazas is a premiere venue offering a unique combination of beautiful space and high-end food & beverage service.

My name is Jean-Luc Taulere and I am the owner of Terrazas and owner and executive chef of Catering Costa, as well as Coco Loco Restaurant, located at the south end of Playa Flamingo. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Service Entrepreneurship. After graduating from college in 2001 I worked in France, Spain, and in Macau, China. When I moved to Costa Rica in 2004, I was astonished by the amazing fresh ingredients available. Since I arrived, my goal has been to create high end Costa Rican cuisine. When traveling in France you probably won’t look for a Chinese restaurant, I feel the same way about Costa Rica and that is why our specialty is to highlight all the amazing natural ingredients this country has to offer.

“Costa Rica is my home and I feel very fortune to share it with my beautiful wife, our growing family, and our amazing team.”
