Very private little corners and fresh décor. The roast meat was soo tender and vegies cooked perfectly not over cooked. The roast was under $20, great to have that choice if you don't want to pay a lot more. Arrived 5pm ish and Served promptly.

Good variety in the menu and very nicely cooked, flavour-some, good service, excellent chips. I had a lovely steak which was beautifully cooked, my husband had a coconut lamb chops which he enjoyed.

Once the staff remembered we were there, it fell into place, decent food at a decent price, good drink selection however there could have been a better wine list. Would give the place another go!

Had a beautiful steak here last night, well cooked and lovely quality. Wasn't in love with the pepper sauce, was more a gravy peppercorn than a creamy pepper sauce. Good menu from starter, main (even small main) to desert - something for everyone. Friendly, polite service.

Darfield is not short of a few good spots to eat or have a tea / coffee / drink etc. Its a small village but well catered for if you are passing through in the daytime. After 6.00 o clock its a different story but The Terrace is good for lunch and dinner. We stopped for lunch here having visited... More

Such a nice place to eat with my family. My only complaint would be the prices. Although the food was delicious, I feel that it was very overpriced. Great people and made up feel very welcome!

Meat was quite tough and... More
