Went to Terroir again this weekend ... "how can food taste this good" was again one of my husband's comments. You won't be disappointed. It is fine dining so prices are steep BUT ... This is like eating art! It is beautifully crafted and therefore worth every cent.

This is an exceptional restaurant in a beautiful setting, particularly when one can dine outside under the trees overlooking the golf course. The food is consistently good and never disappoints.

We had a lovely dinner at Terroir last Saturday night. Ordered the famous prawn risotto & butternut gnocchi as starters and both were delicious and came with a wonderful wine pairing. The risotto was obviously the star. The ribeye with truffle I had as main course was to die for! Loved the crust made out of different kinds of seed,... More

Terroir is a fantastic little restaurant on the Kleine Zalze wine estate with Chef Michael Broughton. The restaurant has minimalist decor which keeps one focus on the food and wines. The service by our waiter was fantastic but also not invasive. The menu options, while limited to a choice of 5 starters and 5 mains, catered for all tastes. The... More

Our hotel recommended coming to Terroir, and we were not disappointed. My friend and I requested to split and appeitizer and entree because we had felt too glutinous lately- they obliged and even served the portions pre halved for us. The presentation was beautiful and the food was some of the best we had during our three week trip in... More

Came here with my wife on a recommendation from eat out magazine and we were amazed by the quality of the food and service. The wine selection from the chalk boards are some of the best wines we have had in South Africa. The food is again, amazing!

A real lifetime experience. Cuisine is what you see on masterchef. Added delight is watching the chefs prepare the food if you can get a table in front section of restaurant. Bookingciscessential

We very much enjoyed our meal at Terroir, which deserves its reputation as one of the best restaurants in South Africa. The menu is creatively international with grounding in South African produce. They have a very extensive South African wine list with the advantage of access to older vintages of the upper range of Kleine Zlatze's own wines.
