When I think of Europe, an open-air cafe where you can enjoy coffee or brunch on the terrace comes to mind. Spending time in the cool breeze on the open terrace is a healing feeling in itself. Recently, there has been an increase in the number of restaurants in Seoul where you can spend time outdoors by creating a separate terrace space. As spring comes after the cold winter, terrace restaurants where you can enjoy the warm sun are gaining popularity. Let's enjoy a European sensibility in Seoul that we weren't able to get because of the coronavirus. A small Europe in the middle of the city! Here are 5 of the best terrace restaurants in Seoul.
1. A terrace to enjoy all year round, 'Terrace Room' in Cheongdam-dong

The âTerrace Roomâ is a terrace surrounded by transparent domes where you can enjoy your meal even on cold winter days or rainy days. The signature dish is the âIberico cutlet,â which is Iberian sirloin, covered in batter, deep-fried, and topped with plenty of chopped chives. The soft texture of the Iberian sirloin, which is properly mixed with fat, and the contrasting texture of the crispy batter stands out.

âRossiniâ is reminiscent of an Italian pizzeria, with an intense red table and chairs on the terrace and an awning in the color of the Italian flag. The signature menu âJAMBONâ is served by putting mushrooms, onion paste, mozzarella, and scamozza on the dough, baked in a wood-fired oven, then topped with ricotta and homemade jambon.

âOriâ has terrace seats along the boulevard in front of the store. The rustic wooden table, the mosaic tile floor, and the vines on the fence give the impression of being in a fairy tale.
