Terroir opened in October 2004 and over the years has become one of the most sought-after gourmet destinations in the Cape Winelands, placing Stellenbosch prominently on the culinary map.
The restaurant is located on Kleine Zalze Wine Farm, 3km from Stellenbosch on the R44. The family-owned winery has risen to prominence both in South Africa and internationally in recent years for its award-winning wines, gourmet food, and stylish accommodation.
Terroir's setting, under shady oak trees with views over De Zalze golf course and the farm's extensive gardens and vineyards, is casual and relaxed. It's the ideal environment in which to enjoy a fine meal paired with excellent wines.
Terroir’s ongoing success has brought with it a string of prestigious awards, including the Eat Out Johnny Walker ‘Restaurant of the Year 2006’, Eat Out ‘Service Excellence Award 2006’, Eat Out ‘Top 10 Restaurant’ 2005 and 2006, Dine (Wine magazine) ‘Top 10 Restaurant’ in 2005, 2006 and 2007, and Best of Wine Capitals of the World South African Wine Tourism Restaurant of the Year 2006.
Terroir is open for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday and Sunday lunch.
