We had an excellent meal with friends at Terranova. Menu selection is good and service and quality is excellent. Prices are average for the area and atmosphere and ambiance is superb Increasingly busy on weekends, best to book weeks in advance

My gut instinct told me to leave as soon as the waiter smirked when I asked him if he had a high chair for our baby. He retorted, as the three of us entered "is it for lunch?" It was12:30pm... Of course yes lunch. The restaurant was completely empty but he made it feel like we had inconvenienced him by... More

Really good food, great service with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and a view across the lake - reasonable prices too. I'll be going back soon to sample their menu with my partner.

Well what can I say, setting was lovely, evening skies setting beautifully. We had booked the table as it was a birthday gift for my husband. I would book a table as the restaurant started to get busy. The staff were very welcoming and very entertaining! The food was hot and excellent in taste and plenty to. The staff made... More

We visited as a group of 4 workmates on a Wednesday. At first, I had mixed feelings: it looks like the changing rooms for the swimming club from the outside but inside, it's a modern, well-appointed restaurant. One thing is for certain, the view over the lake is difficult to fault. We were seated quickly and offered a large table... More

Very average food lacking in finesse. Expensive for this standard. Staff rude and service did not deserve 10% service charge. Very disappointing.
