On first impression the restaurant looks a little simple and rustic, under cover looking out over a garden. However, the food is world class. Excellent duck, springbok, salads and desserts, innovative preparation and beautifully presented without being too fussy. Service was excellent, as well as wines by the glass, including the local estate (the tasting room is directly next to the restaurant, although operated separately - good place to start your visit).

Visited this place recently after having been rated within the top 10 restaurants in South Africa. Excellent food however was spoiled with absolutely poor service with waiters unable to explain the menu. We had to order drinks a number of times before we got exactly what was ordered, and there has been no requests for more drinks thereafter... Despite a long list of wines on display.. When asked about the signature dish of the restaurant, the waiter gave us her own personal favourite????

Very impressed. Friendly front of house Esme. Johan our waiter was fantastic. Stick to estate wine, affordable Kleine Zalze Sauvignon Blanch.Angus Beef Fillet was brilliant. Disappointed that famous Pork Belly was removed from menu. Desert was exquisite Cherrie Berrie was like "nuclear bomb" explosion on tongue. A must visit

Our first restaurant visit on our recent trip to the Cape and a fabulous start. We had 3 courses al la carte at lunchtime. Every dish was very good or excelent, and the right sized portions. Wine excellent value if you stick to the estate wines.

Terroir doesn't enjoy the views of some of the other wineries but it is a nice setting all the same. I have to say the service was faultless and not bettered all trip. it was just pitched perfectly.
