Farm-to-table
In 2011, hotel and restaurant industry professionals Andrea and David decided to make a go of it on their own. Their idea was simple; partner with equally passionate local producers to showcase the best of the Thompson region in a fun, creative setting. Four years later, Chef David’s award winning cuisine along with a stellar line up of wines, beers and delectable cocktails have made Terra a local favorite. Green icon of plate with vegetables We believe in cooking with the seasons. We change our menu monthly to reflect ingredients at their peak. So there’s no asparagus in November, no pumpkins in May and certainly no fava beans in January. What you do get though, is an inspired, creative team excited to work with local farmers, ranchers and artisans who provide us with exceptional products.

Once again, the food at Terra was spectacular. Taking full advantage of the fruit, vegetables and meat sourced locally, the chef created several delicious options for starters, main dish and dessert to treat the taste buds and satisfy a healthy appetite. Terra is going through extensive rennovations to the floor plan of the restaurant therefore temporarily impacting the decor and ambience of the space. The servers were attentive and eager but maybe a bit inexperienced.

The service was good and the ambience was nice. The food was good. The vegetables were unbelievably tasty— hard to explain how delicious they were. The lamb was good but nothing special. If anything, the lamb was a bit on the bland side, missing the classic lamb distinctive flavour. Otherwise, good experience

This restaurant was a treat and I am glad we found it. It was in a 10 best restaurants in Kamloops article, so I don’t know the area. Very nice.

We enjoyed the food but were deeply disappointed with the treatment regarding a seating arrangement received from the owner herself. A small request to change a sitting arrangement in an empty restaurant became a significant issue for the owner. I think the incident could have been avoided altogether considering a$200 bill we paid for our meal. I will not be coming to this restaurant anymore.

Reserved the 4 course Chefs Table w wine pairings the day b4, but was asked to come an hour earlier (5:30 instead of 6:30). We were 10 mins late arriving and our server seemed annoyed, saying “ we were wondering if you were going to join us tonight!” She sat us at this small table in a long narrow window opening and I was feeling a bit claustrophobic esp when another couple was seated behind us and our voices were echoing off the walls! My husband asked if we could be moved...fortunately there was another table available. We felt rushed from the time we arrived until we left, the chefs table is about two hours to complete but it was as though they needed our table for a second reservation. In comparison for the cost of our 4 course meal and wine pairings (which btw was very good) we could have got a hotel room to enjoy and relax for the night $200 and no rush. Unfortunate, since it was a special occasion and they new that.

We were on vacation and we’re told this restaurant was one with fresh, innovative food made with care and love. We found this to be true! Wonderfully mixed tastes put together beautifully. A true delight. Don’t miss an experience of dining at Terra while in Kamloops.

Excellent food: fresh, creative, local. Menu changes every month, so it never gets tiresome. Service is disappointing. Ambiance is non-existent. This restaurant is worth experiencing for the food though, knowing that everything else lacks.

The specials they had the night we were there were absolutely magnificent
The charcuterie was well worth it and had lots to sample
We took over two hours to sip wine - enjoy charcuterie and eat. It was a great experience.

Food was great, service was great. Some renovations going on, but didn't impact anything other than maybe lower capacity. A little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. Well worth it.

The food is locally sourced beautifully cooked and nicely presented. Unusual dishes I had a perfect borscht with sour cream and my partner’s cheeseboard starter consisted of a variety of cheeses with homemade chutneys roast garlic and fennel. His main was a trio of lamb and I had the halibut. Both dishes were full of flavour. We were too full to have dessert. Service was excellent the chef came over to ask if everything was to our satisfaction and our waitress was charming pleasant and efficient. I would definitely dine there again if I revisit Kamloops.

This is our favorite restaurant for supper out. The food is always excellent with fresh, in-season ingredients cooked to perfection. The menu changes as the seasons change so there is always something new and interesting to try. The staff are friendly and very professional. Chef David regularly comes out of the kitchen to greet guests and check in on customer satisfaction which gives this place a feeling like home to us. Meals are 'normal' sized so you can easily enjoy a starter, main course and dessert without feeling too hungry or too full.

Easy quiet ambiance. Better to eat meat rather than seafood at this restaurant. Good selection of wine from the region. Would eat at Terra again but order differently.

Service was terrible. Couldn’t order food at the same time as drinks. Ordering an appetizer before meal was against the ‘rules’. We had a charcuterie board appetizer which was very good, but all the entrees were mediocre. Avoid this restaurant.
