We had experienced a wonderful meal at this restaurant in May 2012 and so were excited about going again in April this year. Although the service was good the food was very disappointing - not the unique and intense flavours we remembered from our previous visit and we felt that the prices were really too steep for what were below...

We enjoyed an absolutely first-rate Sunday lunch here: a superb setting outdoors in a relaxed atmosphere; excellent selection of good value wines; attentive service from our waiter Gerald; and a diverse range of courses with lovely flavours and sauces complementing the various dishes. The foie gras starter was superb, and the steak mains were outstanding, although the Karoo lamb was... More

This is a beautiful place for lunch while out at the wineries for a day. The setting and presentation of the food is perfect for any foodie. We didnt love the wines from their personal winery but that's ok since they carry plenty of wines from outside wineries as well. The tomato salad was beautifully unique, the prawn risotto was...

Wow wow wow wow!!! Excellent food, wine and dessert. Waiter staff were clued up on the food, taste and pairing of wine - as well as a passion for the food. Will definately return. Well worth the money.

Overal a very good experience. Why not excellent? The food did not blow us away. It was very tasty, good portion size but something was missing. Can't tell you what. If you want to to eat a nice meal with great ones in a perfect location, it is a great place to go. If you want to be blown away,... More

We have dined at Terroir many, many times over a number of years and we always came away thinking that was an experience to remember. However after our last visit the experience is something we want to forget On arrival there was a mix up with our reservation which was quickly rectified and we ordered our wine, which was served....

Sitting under aged oak trees, it was a perfect lunchtime setting. The staff were very helpful explaining the menu in great detail. The food was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, perhaps a bit light on the salt. But the combinations were interesting making for a great tasty meal, definitely worth a return visit

First time at this restaurant. I cannot rate our experience too highly. The service was excellent; the staff being friendly with an extensive knowledge of the food produced and the wine served. The food was exceptional, with wonderful flavours and presentation. We have eaten at many super restaurants in South Africa; Terroir is up there being one of the best.... More

Good things first. The food was very good. First they could not find our reservation - although we showed them their own SMS. Then, while we were already eating, they called us to remind us to our reservation. Now the things to criticize: The starter salad could have been a bit spicier. When the mains were served, one was already... More

Everytime we visit the winelands we have a dinner at Terroir. We allways enjoy the food. Again it was good but a bit predictable. Service was not a strong point this time, Winelist was very good. Terroir is well worth the money.
