very good but a couple of things missing for us

Interesting reading other reviews, 'sitting under oak trees' we were under a huge canvas cover trapping in the heat of the day, 'lovely views' yes nice but have seen better and you are not looking over golf course, service - our waiter was a little dour, but we are spoilt in SA with so many... read more

One always knows that this restaurant will deliver and never disappoints. The very high standard from service to food to atmosphere is a joy to experience.

I've always wanted to go there for lunch but it was either fully booked or closed. So finally I got the chance and my high expectations were even exceeded. We had the fish and the Angus beef and both dishes were absolutely delicious and enough for a lunch. OK, the prices aren't on the cheap side but it's worth it... More

Friendly unhurried and knowledgeable staff Lovely home baked breads - we had to have seconds which we followed with elegant not overwhelming portions and having read their cookbook when waiting to order, had to have 2 puddings Wine as you would expect, excellent...

Lunch and dinner was great! The deserts were a highlight. All wines were exellent. Food and wine were good value for money. Beautiful seatings outsinde under big trees. Especially on a hot day is the natural shade of the trees very pleasant. A top Restaurant, we definitely come back. Johann & the Austrian Golf Team

We were advised to try Terroir on the Kleine Zalze estate in Stellenbosch and we were so glad we did Terroir made the top 10 list of best restaurants in South Africa and its a position well deserved. The prawn risotto was the best I have ever eaten and I will be going back there especially for that The meal... More

Try the MCC sparling wine, one of the best we have tasted in Cape Town. The place is simple, so is the food - but smartly done. First restaurant in Cape Town and first delight.

Beautiful view. Lovely to sit outside. Good wine. Good menu. Pity they don't do the crackly belly pork anymore. Friendly staff. Good value for money.

I was told that it would be my best experience in Cape Town Sometimes you unfortunately see that places are taking to many in and the kitchen then don't deliver. Whilst one may need to save up some fair penny for the privilege it is well worth it.
