When we want an easy lunch in the Stellenbosch area this is one of our first choices - quick to get there, easy to find/park & very enjoyable food/service, plus great wines to take home. Starters on this menu always draw us in & there is no issue having them as starters, tapas or even main courses. The restaurant is... More

The midges were out the night we ate at Terroir and unfortunately we had to move inside. Not the restaurant's fault of course but we would have preferred to eat on the terrace. We enjoyed the food though - the fillet steak was delicious, the amuse bouche and petits fours a nice touch. The service couldn't be faulted.

Myself and a friend dined in Terroir in October on a holiday to South Africa. All I can say is the food, wine and service was above all expectations. The whole meal was amazing from start to finish. I could not find fault in anything. The flavours, the quality of the food was so fresh and you know that only... More

Terroir is one of my favourite restaurants in South Africa. I have eaten there at least three or four times a year in the past two or three years, almost on every trip to Stellenbosch. I enjoy it immensely. The relatively small menu is presented on a blackboard. The food is great, the wine list good, the service generally quite... More

This restaurant is always fantastic, and last night it was no exception. From the starter to dessert, it all was great. The waitress was also attentive and not to overbearing. a great experience was had by all.

A lovely spring morning under the oak trees in the first flush of summer together with excellent food. That's the way to do it. The pork belly is to be recommended. We enjoyed the complimentary MCC from the resident estate, Kleine Zalze.

We did not know what to expect, honestly can say we were pleasantly surprised. The dishes are just rightly sized and amazingly tasteful. It is cuisine food at reasonable prices. Also don't be misled by the speciality wine board. There are more reasonably priced wine on the menu. One criticism would be that they only had one option for vegetarian... More

Well known TV programme. Expensive as expected but the food is superb. We three opted for two starters each, a good idea while daughter also had the wonderful dessert... I got a taste! Most certainly will go again. Staff excellent as was the outside dining area.
