Terroir deserves its top 10 status

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.

Superb service, superb wine with beautifully plated, if slightly dull food. A nice setting out on the verandah with views over the garden towards the golf course. Unfortunately, we had better food with a better view for half the price elsewhere.

We go there for many years now and had to experience that Terroir did not improve at all. We were delighted to see that they are back on the top again. Everything was just great. The meals were tasty, nicely presented, service was perfect. For years they have some signature dishes like the pork belly or the risotto on the... More

Having visited Terroir some 15 times over the last 10 years, this place is a stable favourite. This year the much loved prawn risotto starter was on the menu and almost as delicious as 10 years ago! The food is great, bordering on very fine dining and the wines superb. Staff has barely disappointed. A definite must see for every... More

Arrived at KleineZalze wine farm mainly for a wine tasting and hadn't booked for lunch but were lucky to find a free table.Food was exceptional.We had a starter of prawn risotto which was among the best starters we ever had anywhere and was followed by pork belly and a deconstructed apple tart.Service and wine were both excellent too.
