“Different, delicious and adventurous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Looking for something new, something great? Well you will have to look hard to find Terra Sur and it's sister wine bar Cepas but it is well worth the hunt! It's located behind a super market after the elbow turns right in the strip mall. The food is amazing and the wine list is hand crafted by the owner, who has a sixth sense for matching the cuisine to the wine. The flavors range from subtle to bold, be as adventurous as you like, and you will not be dissappointed! The Peruvian style of preparation is evident in the signature dishes that combine potatoes, veggies and beef or chicken in a unique way. Everything on the menus is fantastic, and since this is a regular dining location for me I have had almost everything on the menu and can honestly say I have never been disappointed. LOVE IT....Give it a try and you will be a regular too.

“WOW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

A small hidden place that has great food and an incredible wine and craft beer lists. The food and service are incredible, the staff is very attentive and helpful with making great food and wine pairings.

My only concern is the lack of proper A/C. On both of my visits, it was a little warm.... Especially in the back of the restaurant. But nothing that would stop me from coming back and enjoying a great meal with a equally nice wine.

Overal, great food and wine for a good price. Decor is perfectly suited for the atmosphere.

“Neighborhood Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

Very good food and quaint decor make this a place to go on a date or with another couple. Service is on the ball and they have a wide selection of tapas and entrees to make the night as frugal or expensive as you wish. Good selection of wine to pair with dinner and the bar area is great for a night cap. I had the steak with rice and it was very good. Only downside i would mention is that the food while very flavorful is salty and they do use MSG, so you may want to tell your server to cut these out. The deserts by the way is fantastic.

“Best Peruvian Restaurant in Tampa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Nice decor, excellent food. Try anything in the menu and you won't be dissappointed. Yes the location could be better but once you are in the restaurant the atmosphere is inviting. Service is very good. Their sangria is pretty good. You can also try Peruvian drinks like Chicha Morada or Inka Kola. Great appetizers, cebiches and the best of Peruvian cuisine. Try it and you will be hooked!

Tucked away in a strip center and wasn't sure if we made a good choice, bottom line it's wonderful authentic Peruvian food. Well go back soon.
