This restaurant is bespoken for locals and tourists alike. Tourists particularly seem to sit at the starched white-lined tables in the comfy fire-lit dining room or under the umbrellas of the verandha overlooking the pond, indulging in their seasonal and changing menu. The changes are small, as why change something that is so perfect. The prawn risotto has been a... More

The best meal I have ever tasted, accompanied by the best service I have ever experienced. From the moment we walked into the restaurant, to the moment we left, everything was perfect and I could not fault a single thing. I went for the winter special (nights stay at Klein Zelza lodge, supper at Terroir, complimentary wine tasting and breakfast... More

We ate here last week as part of the Eat & Stay special, and the restaurant had also been recommended to us by friends. The rest of our night's deal was wonderful but sadly our experience at Terroir did let it down a little. Our 3-course meal took 2 1/4 hours, when you include the mess-up with the bill (twice)...

The food was good, but not outstanding, very little (we walked out there hungry), very pretentious, and completely overpriced, which soured the experience a bit. We will not return.

We went to Terroir for the winter special although I ate all three courses from the regular menu! Our waitress was knowledgable and friendly and we all loved the beautifully plated, perfectly cooked and wonderfully tasty food.The beetroot starter and chicken wings starter that the rest of the table had were really scrumptious. My lamb belly and gnocchi starter was... More

Stellenbosch is packed to the brim with outstanding eateries. Even franchise stores have to compete with established independents, meaning food quality is typically always high. Enter terroir. A top 10 restaurant famed for its chalkboard menu and local supply. Venue? Check. Staff knowledge? Check. Menu variety? Check. Ambience? Check. But value? Come on guys. If you have decided to exclusively... More

We have been at Terroir the first time in 2005 and came back ever since we travel to CPT and this year it must have been more than ... times. The restaurant is still one of the best in Africa and it is an absolute pleasure to return! The menu created by Chef Michael Broughton and his team was another... More

Upon arrival,we were warmly greeted by the front of house staff and shown to our table. I found the restaurant to be much smaller... More

I have been to Terrior 5+ times over the last 3 years and each time I was treated to an exceptional dining experience. I would definitely recommend the tasting menu.
