Description: OUR STORY In 2011, hotel and restaurant industry professionals Andrea and David decided to make a go of it on their own. Their idea was simple; partner with equally passionate local producers to showcase the best of the Thompson region in a fun, creative setting. Four years later, Chef David’s award winning cuisine along with a stellar line up of wines, beers and delectable cocktails have made Terra a local favorite. FRESH We believe in cooking with the seasons. We change our menu monthly to reflect ingredients at their peak. So there’s no asparagus in November, no pumpkins in May and certainly no fava beans in January. What you do get though, is an inspired, creative team excited to work with local farmers, ranchers and artisans who provide us with exceptional products. LIQUID ASSETS You wouldn’t expect to find Canadian wines at a small restaurant in Australia would you? Our wines, beers and spirits are carefully selected from small, quality producers right here in BC. Some in fact, are just down the street. We are proud of our relationships with craft brewers, distillers and wineries as they allow us to showcase the exceptional products of our region. JOIN US We recommend making a reservation, especially during busy times like weekends or holiday weekends. We appreciate larger groups calling ahead to book space. If you are out and would like to drop in, please do so, knowing you will always be welcome. At Terra Restaurant, we pride ourselves on serving our guests the very best locally sourced, organic and most authentic food each and every day. Our traditional recipes and approach to preparing the meals we serve is what sets us apart from the rest. With the freshest ingredients at hand in our community each menu item starts with incredible taste. If there's one thing we pride ourselves on, it's complete customer satisfaction. From the time you walk through the door to the time we have to say goodbye, we ensure that you've had the very best dining experience. We treat everyone that walk through our door like family and want you to feel that way. From the care that goes into preparing our meals to the smiling faces of our staff.

Certainly deserves the high rating. This is for quality, not quantity. Portions just right for us. I was very impressed by wine we were served, very well chosen (Fort Barens 2012 reisling: orgasmic). Price/quality ratio excellent.

I told the chef that if this restaurant was in San Francisco where I live, the customers would be lined up out the door wanting to get in. Yes, it's that good.

When you go to a fancy restaurant (and Terra IS a fancy restaurant) you should not expect portions as big as at fast food or even average restaurant. In restaurants like Terra you should order apps and entree and dessert. That what people do in restaurants better than Red Robin or White Spot. I do no want to say that White Spot is a bad restaurant.

I am just saying that Terra is a restaurant from another league. Visit more restaurants of the same level and you will start noticing the difference. :)

Excellent experience. The two salads I ate were as beautiful as they were tasty. I had the beet salad adjusted to my taste, and the farmer's salad was excellent. The vegetables really tasted like they had been picked today. Service was impeccable, elegant but not overstated.
Thank-you, Jamie, for the excellent recommendation. I'll be back.
