“A little expensive but good food and service”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Its a good menu and food is good but when wine is added it becomes an expensive night. Service is great and we were well looked after. Would go back again

“Terra Firma is terra-rific!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Probably one of the best steakhouses in the UAE... or anywhere else for that matter! Steaks cooked to perfection, with "sides" worthy of being "mains", and a wine list (although a bit pricey) that perfectly complements the menu selections. The patio seating is great with the exception of a "show" just beyond the patio walls that kicks off on at least an hourly basis VERY loudly for about 10 minutes, leaving the meal and any conversation interrupted. That being said, Terra Firma is definitely worth the trip for tying on the feed bag... especially if you are feeling particularly peckish. The Terra Firma Tomahawk Challenge: eat 2 kilos of grain-fed Australian beef in under 60 minutes and it's free. (Alka-Seltzer not included!)

“Good food, perfectly cooked. What else can you ask for?”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I had a very nice meal here. It was with a group and we had a special reservation so the menu might have been a bit different from their regular one, but the food was nicely presented and perfectly cooked. The meal started with a fois gras terrine that was flavourful and a good consistency. Following was a seared scallop which was divine - absolutely perfectly cooked. The main course was medium rare venison with chestnuts and diced pears. The pears added a hint of sweetness, the chestnuts added texture, and again, the meat was perfectly cooked. The cheese course had a tart with flaky pastry and roquefort ice cream that cause a lot of debate at the table. Those who enjoyed blue cheese in general found it divine. Overall, it was a meal that I enjoyed very much and the chef showed perfect control. Not a single thing was either overcooked or undercooked all night. The menu was imaginative and fresh without being "weird." It's a fine line between adventuresome and trying-too-hard.
