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.

What an experience! Wonderful food and service. We will definitely be back for more. One of the best Cape Wineland venues, with superb food.

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

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)...
