Terroirific is a witty but inclusive, parochial yet cosmopolitan wine bar in the heart of Geneva, within sight of the railway station. There is a strong hint of Spanish with excellent tapas from the owner's home country, but the wines are varied and there is French, Portuguese and Swiss in abundance as well as wines from Spain. The music is a big part of the vibe and as über-cool as the clientele who vary from the bohemian to the banker in equal number. I enjoyed it enormously and it's probably going to be my standard go-to bar in Geneva.

A nice little bar serving a delicious selection of tapas and great wines in a nice and cosy athmosphere. This bar plays excellent music and hosts cool exhibitions, gigs and dj sets. One of the best places to hang out in town...

I loved the atmosphere, and the food and service were very good. I enjoyed, in excellent company, great tapas with some fine wines! If you haven't already, just take a few minutes and visit the place for a glass of wine.

Terroirific is a a super cool tapas /wine bar close to the Cournavin station. I have visited the place a few times and like it more and more with each visit. The selection of tapas changes on a regular basis and it includes the most delicious ham, Chorizo, soprasada, cheeses and other Spanish delicacies. The wine list is a varied as the tapas menu, and I love the fact the bar has a great selection of Cavas and Champagnes. On special occasions the restaurant offers Champagne brunches - check the program as this is THE best value brunch in town when it is on!!

But best of all is the amazing energy of owner Onneca Guelbenzu which makes every visit super special! Check out the event email as every week there is something different going on. Events are very varied and can range from life music, a special dj, to themed tastings or jewelry/art exhibitions. Definitely a place to add to the bucket list!!

This little wine bar not far from Geneva railway station is super-relaxed, especially early evening with a friendly mix of people of all ages. It probably gets more lively later on, but not living close we didn't stay late.

Manager Onne, originally from Spain really knows her wine and with the ever-changing wine list from Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and beyond this is ideal for the wine lover keen to learn. Wine classes are also promised for the future. Onne also loves the food from her country and the tasty tapas are firmly focussed on Spanish pork and cheese products, but there's also tasty tortilla and here is another side of this bar that is sure to evolve. The outdoor seating is on the pavement, but the bar seems to effortlessly extend outwards.

Onne is a rock & roll star in her own right, so keep watch on the live music events and DJs she brings in on the weekends.
