An excellent lunch in Stellenbosch

We dropped in for lunch (pre-booked) after a morning of wine tastings at a few of the vineyards in the valley. The Provencial-inspired chalkboard menu has a delight of foods that are inspired by the region produce. Each of the menu options were accompanied by a suggestion of local wines that... read more

Probably one of the best dining experiences you'll find in the Stellenbosch Winelands. The ultimate fine dining experience... A "must do" if you're in the area (oh... and if you manage to get a booking!)

Terroir never disappoints, with its beautiful location, exquisite food and delicate service. It's an obvious choice for summer lunches in the outside terrace or intimate evenings indoors.

After a week of staying at the beautiful picturesque Klein Zalze Lodge my husband thought it a great treat to take me to one of the "top 10 eateries" in the country on my last night. Sadly this was nothing short of an average experience with very average food. The intimate set up was much to my liking and the... More

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 atmosphere .... It was incredible.... 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
