The big plus is authenticity - if you like authentic Mediterranean fare, you'll love it - well prepared and an explosion of flavours. However it's a specialist - it doesn't offer anything else, and it's EXPENSIVE! The seating is unimpressively cramped. For the enthusiastic foodie...More

The food was nice, staff too but be careful that they add optional services charges (£15 in our case) to your bill without mentioning it! It's a custom of that neighborhood they try to copy restaurants in the US but they do it wrong. If...More

A French place close to Trafalgar Square, where you can find simple dishes but with an excellent quality. They have an extensive wine collection as well. The service is fantastic. Would highly recommend it

Great evening - huge wine list : we stuck to the house recommendations on the front of the menu which were excellent. Food interesting and well presented - good range of small plates. Service brisk but friendly and well informed. Will certainly go again..and again

I’ve gone past this restaurant many times, but have always assumed that it’s just a small wine bar. I could not be more wrong – the place is huge inside and very busy! The food menu is quite small with a few daily specials. We...More

We've loved this place since it started, but our love has lessened each time we've eaten there as the chain spread and service standards fell. The kitchen is still good, but the planning seems a bit off. We went late, after the theatre. The 'dinner...More

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.
