A friend recommended Terrior when he heard we'd be visiting Stellenbosch. I sent an email beforehad to request a dinner reservation. Sadly, they said they were booked for the time we were visiting. Still wanting to taste their wines, we went to the tasting room late one afternoon. As we were about to depart, we decided to just check one... More

We looked forward to visiting Terroir and were not disappointed. The service was good, the staff explained the dishes to us. The food was well timed. We had glasses of the estate wine which were very good--watch out for the very large glasses for the MCC! The springbok was well cooked and tasty. We will return to Terroir; we enjoyed... More

The food was very delightful, especially the first course, a kind of tuna salad And even the main course was delicious. We love the "kleine Zalze wines" which match perfectly with the dishes

We paid a returned visit Terroir and were very disappointed. The food in our opinion was very average in fact the menu was very uninspiring compared to other restaurants and was very expensive. The restaurant hasn't changed for years, its dated and desperately in need of a revamp. The service was average at best, the waitress had no knowledge of... More

Dinner at Terroir last night was OK but overpriced compared to many other restaurants in the area and we will probably not return. Service was attentive throughout the meal and the timing of courses just right. The choice of only 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts is inadequate and whilst the prawn risotto was as delicious as ever the... More

In the ups and downs of wine-region restaurants, Terroir stands out as offering consistently fine dining. No novelties or spectacular dishes here, but always delicious food, well executed. We hope to be back next year

Have been visiting Terroir over the years and like the service and setting. Contrary to other reviews, the menue is not changing daily, suggests writer has never been there. Menue stays for a period, unclear what determines a change. The estate - like others - has also fallen victim to a sales drive by a security company, resulting in a... More

Beautiful location and friendly staff. However it was seriously overpriced especially when you have to pay a huge extra for vegetables. Our meals ( springbok and kingklip) were very average - and the service was barely average. General feeling - very disappointing. We were guests of people from overseas so they were not shocked at the costs and we did... More
