Terroir has always been one of our favourite restaurants which we visit whenever in the Stellenbosch area. Unfortunately our most recent visit was disappointing. In the past we have always received the 'welcome back' greeting normally offered to past visitors. On this occasion a front of house manageress clearly lacking in personality simply went through the motions of seating us,... More

I was a huge fan of the program "Seasons at Terroir" on DSTV and my husband recently surprised me with a lunch at Terroir as part of a weekend away. While the restaurant is really not fancy on the inside (but not in the least bit shabby either), it more than lived up to it's foodie reputation. I found the... More

Went as part of a stay over package at Kleine Zalze. Ridiculously cheap deal for super food. Great atmosphere and service. Took along a 17 year old bottle of wine that turned out to be great at 50 bucks corkage.

Mid day we stopped here for lunch. We were blessed to find the place quiet and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was absolutely amazing and was first class fine dining. From the fresh bread to the starters, to the main course and coffee.......this is one fine dining experience.

The food, besides being delicious, was presented beautifully. A lip smacking experience and the ambience is so calm and relaxing. Not to mention the good wines !! We will definitely be back

My wife had dinner on a Saturday night. The gent serving us was friendly and very knowledgeable. I had stuffed chicken wings which was beautifully presented while my wife had a tomatoe salad with marinated tomatoes which she loved. My wife ordered the pork belly which she rated very highly. I had the lamb shoulder which was prepared medium rare.... More

So as the title says, this is my favourite restaurant of all I've eaten in. The wine is my favourite in SA and the food is so tasty. Love eating outside and the service is great. When I'm in SA, there is no way I won't take a special trip just to eat there! Miss it at your own loss!

I liked the depth of flavour, presentation and excellent service, as well as the lovely setting. Very interesting out-of-the-box thinking went into the dishes sampled.

Terroir was the main reasons we booked to stay at Kleine Zalze and we were not disappointed. The service was highly professional and very friendly (often the two don't go hand in hand) and the food was spectacular. We went for fish and veggie dishes (despite being in the land of meat!) as we had eaten so much rich food... More
