“The wine selection continues to be very good but the dishes have suffered a bit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Bacalao a la Vizcaina is a favorite wherever I am. And it used to be good here in Terry's. The dinner last night though was a bit of a disappointment. The consistency was too watery and the tomato was used used sparingly leaving the salted cod alone, swimming in the soup. Having bacalao as a dish is tricky - the broth must be very good otherwise it doesn't seep into the cod itself leaving a feeling that the two ingredients were just mixed and not stewed together.

The rest of the dishes I guess were okay, noting spectacular though anymore. Maybe they changed their chef.

We had the 2006 Ondarre Reserva and it was very good.

“Great Iberian food - an unexpected delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Terry's is located in the basement of The Podium Mall, just along the road from the ADB main building. Once you are inside the restaurant, you are quite oblivious to its location. I've eaten here on a number of occasions, and it is on my 'must visit' list. The ambience is very good. The place is always busy, but somehow you can get a table. It is mostly a local clientele, and there is always a great atmosphere. People just enjoy being there.

The menu is interesting, with a good range of European dishes, mostly in Iberian style. It is worth being adventurous. There are some real gems on the menu, and although a few don't quite work out, it is always a good place to eat. If you are European and have been on the road for a while, this is momma's cooking (even if you aren't Portuguese!)

The wine selection is extensive and reasonably priced. If you wish, you can just select a bottle from the adjoining deli (I think at the deli price). This is much more interesting than reading the wine list. Service is good, friendly and helpful.

The deli is worth a visit in its own right. In addition to the wine, there is a good stock of olives, tinned fish and fruit, cheese, fresh ciabatta and other breads, etc. There is a cheese and meat counter, and also a fridge at the back with sliced meat, cheese (including good smelly Camembert), salad ingredients, etc.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

I went there for dinner with colleagues. It's more of a tapas style place but great meats, cheeses and the stuffed bell peppers were delicious. Wine was nice and super cheap. They also had a big selection of wines in the store to purchase. Would go back again
