We have been going to Terroir for years and last year it was not as good as it had been. But this year it was a huge disappointment. We were vaguely greeted shown to our table and plonked down. It was a windy day and the plates were turned over. No one seemed to notice. Bottled water was brought and... More

This is informal fine dining - relaxed but every bit as good as the best. The manager has a fabulous knowledge of their wine list and made a knockout recommendation. The food is simple, great quality ingredients, put together beautifully and served perfectly in a lovely setting. Service is great too!

We enjoyed our lunch at Terrior. The service was good, the ambience ordinary (in a courtyard with no view) but the dishes were very expensive. We ordered the line fish of the day (kingklip) which was very tasty but a small portion on a large plate with relatively little vegetables ( mushrooms and potatoes) It normally comes with chicken crumbs...

Booked an hour before arrival for lunch. Lovely outdoor table in garden setting. Service was good and attentive. Food was excellent - can recommend prawn risotto, line fish (kingklip) and the tomato, beetroot salad. Food very well presented. House white wine (Chenin blanc) was lovely. Pricey.

Although a little pricy this was a great spot for dinner. Unfortunately the views are not of the vineyard but still good. And restaurant is accessed through a gated security entrance. The food was really too draw and best meal so far on this trip. Definitely worth a visit if the wallet allows.

Terroir ranks with 2 or 3 other restaurants in our list of favourites. The menu is generally small but this just enhances the quality of the food. The chefs create wonderful masterpieces that not only look amazing but give you a real taste explosion. A great wine list complements the menu for an overall experience that is just incredible.
