We really love this place and brunch is usually terrific. The selection was extremely picked over & our omelette was not cooked enough. Service was very slow. There is rarely a hostess standing there to greet you. Terras has so much potential and it's kind of painful to see it continue to be run like this.

Beautiful atmosphere. Excellent wine list. I am so happy to see vegan options on the menu. I love the roasted vegetable hummus with pita bread and vegetables.
I had the vegan pasta which was delicious. And there are actually vegan desserts!
I recommend this restaurant highly.

We went to Terras for Valentine’s Day and enjoyed it very much. The Brussels appetizer was great. We enjoyed the cod and scallop dishes...nutritional, healthy and delicious. Great service!

We were a group of 3 girlfriends out for a fun night and were excited about the sleek and new restaurant. we had a 6:15 reservation and did not end up getting our dinners until 8:30pm. Clearly they are working the kinks out of all areas of their business because the restaurant was not busy and we waited over 2 hours for our dinners. When the three steaks ($36, all ordered medium rare) finally arrived they were completely grey and were sent back immediately. To their credit they comp’ed our steaks and brought us out new ones out in 25 minutes, but we were already beyond annoyed and just wanted to leave. This place has a lot of potential but needs to work on a few things! The bus boy was by far the most attentive person we came in contact with at Terras.

This place has an amazing, creative chef. They are very Vegan/vegetarian/gluten free friendly. Such great flavors and many options. Also great for meat eaters as well. On our week stay to carefree we ate here for dinner 2 times and lunch once. Staff was very friendly.

Amazing AMAZING FOOD! We went back next day and will be returning end of our week long stay. Staff is friendly and accommodating. I am vegan, gluten free and there are many options plus chef made a vegan item gluten free. Chef is very talented. My husband was very impressed and he is a meat eater. Something for everyone! I am getting hungry just thinking about it.

Sorry to say but the staff was not well trained, the prime rib special was very tough and the noise from the bar was annoying... The staff turn the music off so that the Boombox in the bar could play in the lobby. Wouldn't give it another chance

This was our first time at Terras. The resort and restaurant have had a major remodel and rebranding. We were very pleased. The food and service were outstanding. We had a lovely table by the fireplace. The restaurant hasn’t really been “discovered “ yet, so we had a quiet peaceful evening. We will definitely return. The steelhead was delicious.

Terras has been redone recently, as has the hotel. The restaurant has a clean feel to it. The service was wonderful but it was a Sunday night and the place was empty. My wife's scallops were great. My chicken was just ok. Her kale salad was great. My shrimp cocktail was just ok. So the food is a little hit and miss but I would say with some time, they can be great. I hope that they put the effort in and make Terras what it can be. We will absolutely try them again.

Five of us came here for lunch. Every visit has been wonderful. However this visit was exceptional. The turkeyburger had a wonderful flavor that lit up your taste buds. The carrot cake had a delightfully new design of intricate flavors. It is such a fabulous change from the norm to wake up your taste buds to earlier times in your life when you were discovering different recipes.

Carefree needs a good restaurant so we were hopeful Terra's would fill the need. We dined with friends. All of our meals were a disappointment. The portions are really small which would be OK if they were amazing, but they are not! I had the chicken breast which must have come off 1/2 of a Cornish hen as I can't imagine a chicken being that tiny. it was accompanied with crispy charred cauliflower (they give you different selections to choose from). The cauliflower was pathetic. One of the other guests had the crabcakes to which she couldn't detect any crab and they were burned on top of it, she choked down one and left the other. The hamburger her husband ordered was not something he would return for and the fries are like something you would get at a low end drive through. The scallops were OK but nothing special. The place was pretty much empty and now we understand why, we will not be returning. It's unfortunate.

The worst experience ever... They should “start over” employ a manager who knows how to run a restaurant, a chef that knows how to cook and everything else to do with this disaster site, needs a “do over”....

Great restaurant for locals and visitors. The remodeling results are beautiful, simple, and airy. The food is wonderful and the service is prompt and friendly.
Vegetarian and Vegan options are welcome.
The patio is inviting- too hot now but in the fall it will be a perfect spot.
So happy to have an excellent restaurant in Carefree.

Father's Day: First of all the dinner menu with sustainable fresh fish and meats, non-GMO certified organic fruits and vegetables is FABULOUS. We need this in our neighborhood!!! I don't think there's a completely non-GMO certified organic restaurant in our area.

The ratings for me dropped when my dinner order consist of 2 appetizers; the Shishito peppers and the calamari/mushroom dish.

• The Shishito peppers were disappointing; soggy and greasy, as if placed in a basket to fry... And the color of the peppers were not a vibrant green, more like Army Green. •The calamari I ordered was so-so, I didn't know what to expect, I should have asked. Since the calamari is combined with mushrooms and hoisin sauce I did expect some sort of stir-fry, it was a very wet, saucy stir-fry. So a bite of that had no texture, everything in my mouth felt slimy. Again I should have asked how it was prepared...

My husband's said his steak was good. And our friend ordered the zucchini noodles and loved it!

We shared the chocolate mousse made entirely of avocado, is amazing! I loved it so much I went home to recreate it.

The minimalist decor and monotones of whites, beiges, touches of warm greys evoked peacefulness and healthy well-being.

The service was excellent since there was hardly a soul in the dining room.

I would indeed return to Terras, to reorder the Shishitos and calamari in hopes that there is some improvements.

Disappointed to say the least. At arrival for lunch despite a reservation no one present to welcome us. Wait staff tried to recover but first impressions prevailed. Spouse’s turkey burger very dry and with heaps of mayo still not acceptable. My pesto prosciutto wrap was all wrap and just a slim piece of prosciutto so its taste was non-existent. Fresh fruit was our only consolation.

The menu is very limited - said to be all healthy options. The wine list was short, and some of the listed wines were not available. My steak was so salty as to be inedible. The new remodel is nice and creates a good atmosphere.

This restaurant has gone down hill I used to come here to enjoy the western look.the new management have everything all white. They even took away the western picture in dining room. That was a nostalgic to many people who live here. The food service even.had changed. I asked for a medium.steak,and got a charcoal black one. Waiter got huffy when I asked to take back and redo. I'm sad to say I won't be coming back anymore.
