Old style food, bland and gooey sauces, not natural...fish over cooked, burned on the underside. Unattentive wait staff.

Having been to Terroir several times over the past couple of years, expectations were deservedly high. While the new winter menu had several interesting options, the execution on the evening was nfortunately not up to the usual high standards. Starter of prawn risotto was tasty, but risotto was practically non-existent on the plate, leaving what was essentially 4 small prawns... More

This establishment was highly recommended to me. I was told it speciality is a 7 course meal each with a wine complementing each dish. I was informed that this will be a 1000zar per couple. The bill was 1900zar. The food was not bad, but was not worth what we paid. Service was very good. As we left we stopped... More

My husband and I were in Stellenbosch for almost a week, we ate at lots of highly-rated restaurants, and this one was probably our favorite. The food was exquisite, the wine enhanced every dish, and the service was warm and welcoming. We had a three course menu with wine pairings. I have very restricting allergies, and never has a chef...

Watching squirrels, geese and a myriad of birds from your lunch table is always a treat. Couple that with good food, a consistently innovative chef and attentive service and you have all the ingredients that make Terroir the phenomenal restaurant it is. We go back frequently and have never been disappointed. Our latest lunch was no exception. My only request... More

Terroir has been on my bucket list for ages - I like Michael Broughton's approach to cooking. The staff were friendly, the weather was perfect, as only a Cape summer's day can be. Everyone was sitting outside under the trees - the setting was idyllic. Unfortunately I don't remember what the amuse bouche was, am sure it was in the... More

Spent a wonderful day with friends at the magnificent restaurant Terroir on the Kleine Zalze wine farm. We sat inside near the cosy wood fire and were served an amuse bouche, little bites of heaven. Starters included hot seared and smoked salmon, bacon foam, apple vinaigrette. Stuffed chicken wings, black mushroom and parmesan, foie gras. Lamb belly with braising juices... More

We visited Terroir to celebrate my wife’s birthday on a cold and damp Monday at the beginning of June. The welcome to the restaurant was warm and friendly and we were seated at a table near a window and close to a fire which was just perfect. Having recently seen the TV series ‘Seasons at Terroir’ we were looking forward... More

My husband and I decided to try Terroir again after many years on a rainy Monday and were pleasantly surprised at this gem that we have right on our doorstep. There was a roaring fire going which made the restaurant warm and cozy. The bread basket set the tone of what was to come - freshly baked and different varieties.... More
