Have used for years and never disappointed. Returned for a snack lunch with quality platters of french cheese and charcuterie with lovely breads. Wine choices are extensive and bar staff extremely knowledgable and very friendly/attentive. Atmosophere great for busy lunch.

... and I am an ex-restaurant critic who runs their own restaurant and been here several times. While the natural wine selection is unrivalled - probably in the world - and the food is unapologetically 'refined', the service is appalling. It's not so much about...More

It seems to be a trend to make restaurants bars appear more lively by getting rid of anything that absorbs noise. Consequently during an early evening visit this place is just too noisy. Prices as you would expect are expensive. Ordered a glass of Merlot...More

In William IV St., tucked behind Coutts Bank, with very little in the way of signage, this restaurant is somewhere between a tapas bar and a restaurant. On the day we went the welcome, for a table we had reserved, was offhand, as was the...More

You don't. It is a city centre eaterie. Just get the train from the far north. In any case, there is no point in eating there if you plan to drive home. It is essentially a place to drink with food attached.

Terroirs is a well established natural wine bar serving drinks with energy and food with respect. Terroirs is split between two levels. The street-level restaurant has some outdoor seating and a large bar counter that can seat up to 14 people, with a great view of the open kitchen. The Cellar downstairs has very high ceilings and original brick walls, with a separate kitchen and bar area. As well as being a dinning room, it's used for in-house events such as winemaker dinners and movie screenings, and is also available for private hire.
