We had dinner here for the first time on a Wednesday evening. On arrival we were given a nice table for 4 [there were 2 of us] and we both had a view over the lakes. The place was clean, airy and nice atmosphere. Starters came very quickly and felt like they had maybe been prepared a little while ago,... More

Situated in a stunning position overlooking the lake this must be one of Welwyn Garden City's best kept secrets! Lovely lighting, delicious food and wine, linen table clothes with a fresh red rose on each table! What more could anyone want!!

We had a celebration dinner here with our daughter yesterday evening. Such a nice setting for a restaurant. After a really nice welcome the service was excellent, but unobtrusive, the table cleared promptly and wines topped up. When we left, all the staff came to say goodbye too. The food was very good and plentiful, with bread being offered pre-starter.... More

On a hard earned day off with my wife and child we passed the door of Terranova at Stanborough. It was very quiet inside ans we though maybe we could have a glass of wine and have a two or three starters instead of main courses for a light lunch and a couple of glasses of wine. It was a... More

This restaurant will give you an explosion of flavour and the staff are superb. I have been coming here for a while now and recommend this restaurant for any pastas and their fillet steak is superb.

I have had mixed experiences here some very good but last time my vegetarian meal was not good. As they had run out of vegetables. However it did not ruin a lovely birthday celebration and the dessert was on the house as a result of the disappointing food.

Nice position overlooking lake but the food is average. Starter of Calamaris tasteless. Mains we had covered in sauces that were bland. Food came up far too fast. When you go out for the evening you don't want to be rushed. Staff seemed to want to get home. Won't be returning.

Lake view very nice. Ambience cozy. Service polite and professional. Food average, expected more in taste and presentation. Price good. Would go again.
