Expected more but still a good restaurant

We had lunch at Terroir once before in May 2007. We were in articles (making almost no money) and we (my then boyfriend and I ) treated ourselves to a phenomenal lunch at Terroir. The bill was more than we made in a week but the experience was beyond words. The flavors, the restaurant, the... read more

An exceptional eating experience. The starter selection was good and the salads and scallops were excellent. The steak and venison mains were delicious. Presentation and service were flawless . Definitely well worth a visit but be prepared for a rather large bill at over R500 a head . We considered this good value for a special eating experience.

Not our first visit here. Great breads and olives. The starters were delicious. I chose the deep fried goats cheese. I eventually located it on the plate but also found lots of other delightful little tastes too plus some delicious salad leaves and olive gravel. My husband had the chicken wings (boned) with perfectly cooked poached smoked egg, asparagus, pasta... More

Amidst the Kleine Zalze wine estate, under an interesting bedouin tent to protect us from the elements, we enjoyed a wonderful meal. The service was attentive, the wine sublime, and the food certainly reflected its Top 10 Eat Out status.

Sunday lunch at Terroir was fabulously gourmet in a beautiful casual outdoor setting. Weather was stunning which was a bonus. Kleine Zalze sparking MCC and Shiraz perfect wines to compliment the delicious meals.

Book your table way in advance. They don't seat that many people and the restaurant is busy and with good reason. Surrounded by vineyards, a lovely garden and a top class golf course, the venue is perfect. The smallish menu is a blackboard. Each and every dish is a masterpiece. Wine choices are limited but sufficient. Service top class. We... More

Every time we visit De Zalze to play a round of golf dinner at the Terroir is a must for us. It rounds up the day. Sitting outside, enjoying the excellent De Zalze and Kleine Zalze wines and the beautiful, delicious food served by the friendly and attentive staff is a perfect experience. Highly recommend this place.
