What a beautiful little place, and so cozy. I loved soaking in the dusky interiors while sipping on the wine - the recommendation we received was great! The small plates were totally worth the $ and lots of friendly faces around if you like people-watching!...More

Feels like a little French cafe. Lovely selection of cured meats and cheeses for sharing boards, along with larger plates if you're looking for a main course

Appetising dishes but limited choice. Prompt delivery. Pork chop was nice as was the seam bream fillet. Bit more veg would have been appreciated.

Relaxed atmosphere, quick service and excellent menu. Only downside is a bit of a limited menu (and the way it is set out!). But for a great early evening meal it is great!

We'd been meaning to visit Terroirs for ages and finally made it during a rather long weekend in the capital. The wine list is the thing really and it is massive and quite extraordinary! We had a brilliant, and well explained by the waiter, 4...More

Terrible rating due to me spotting young waiter not washing his hands after going to the toilet and then touching the cheese, utterly revolting ... The food is ok. Wine was corked but replaced without fuss. Sadly after probably 10 visits i wont be back.

You don't. It is a city centre eaterie. Just get the train from the far north. In any case, there is no point in eating there if you plan to drive home. It is essentially a place to drink with food attached.

Terroirs is a well established natural wine bar serving drinks with energy and food with respect. Terroirs is split between two levels. The street-level restaurant has some outdoor seating and a large bar counter that can seat up to 14 people, with a great view of the open kitchen. The Cellar downstairs has very high ceilings and original brick walls, with a separate kitchen and bar area. As well as being a dinning room, it's used for in-house events such as winemaker dinners and movie screenings, and is also available for private hire.
