Terroirs is split between two levels. The street-level restaurant has some outdoor seating and a large bar 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 an additional kitchen and bar area which hosts our regular wine tastings, visiting winemaker dinners, magnum parties and cellar cinema screenings.
This unique space is also available for private hire.
As always, excellent food and wine
Service and starters were the bright spots, but the main course was a let down. Ligurian Bull’s Heart Tomatoes, Duck Rillettes and Pork & Pistachio Terrine were all fantastic and might have been enough on their own with a couple of glasses to wash it down. However, we ordered a main each as well, which took a shine off an otherwise nice experience. The rabbit was particularly dire - a dried out hip knuckle and tiny forearm. Nevertheless, a good wine list, prompt service and lively atmosphere await.
Everything was just excellent. We had some charcuterie, the lamb and the rabbit and cherry tart. The wine was fantastic and the service impeccable. This isn’t the cheapest restaurant around but worth every penny! Will be returning soon!
Ideal place for lunch near The Strand/Charing Cross. Very fresh starter of courgette and curry/pistachio. Mains of freshly grille plaice and rump of lamb. Very fresh organic white wine from Sicily. Overall very enjoyable.
The menu said something like "Anchovies, butter, sourdough toast" - in the starter/small plate section, price £32. £32 for some anchovies? As a starter? I mean, even given the weak pound and London prices, that felt excessive. Surely a misprint (given the other starter prices were all £8, £7 etc), we asked our waitress. But no, not a misprint. Just very special, hand caught, hand selected anchovies from Spain, they had probably been to private school as well, who knows. My dinner companions thought I was mad. And perhaps I am, but I like outlandish propositions. I ordered the £32 anchovies. They came. Still in their tin. Yes, THOSE kind of anchovies, swimming in oil. With just some bread and butter. And do you know what? They were SENSATIONALLY delicious. Hugely extravagant but one of the most satisfying £32 I have ever spent, and yes, the best anchovies I have ever tasted. So there.
Wine and food are consistently excellent. A bit too toasty inside on a warm evening!!
Great small plates and quirky detailed wine list. Try the duck rillettes.
The food was a bit disappointing as was the menu as a whole. I have eaten here for years and my worst experience.
We really enjoyed our meal at Terroirs. It has a casual and stylish atmosphere with interesting decor. The food was very tasty although not so different and creative. Duck rillettes and the jerusalem artichokes were our favourite dishes. The wine choice is excellent. Service was friendly and attentive, and we felt really welcomed and valued. We would definitely go again!
I find the best thing is to treat Terroirs menu like tapas and share small plates. Everything we had (Terrine, Aubergine thing, salad, Smoked eel, cheese) was tip-top, but the revelation was the fillet of smoked eel balancing on a hollowed-out baked potato, done crisply, and covered with tagliatelle-strips of celeriac in a slightly tangy sauce. Unusual and ABSOLUTELY delicious.
Absolutely love this place, fabulous food and one of the best wine lists in London.
We come to terroirs a lot and love it. However I think we were just unfortunate on this occasion as it was a very hot evening and the air conditioning wasn’t working which didn’t help. The staff seemed less attentive and one staff member had extremely bad body odour which was very off putting. The clientele that evening also comprised a disproportionately high number of shouty middle aged men which ive not experienced as representative of the general customer base. All in all this meant that we hurried our food to leave prematurely as normally we’d stay and graze and enjoy the wines and all the lovely variety of food on offer. Hoping it was just a bad night and not indicative of a shift in ethos or service.
Returning to Terroirs is always a treat for me. Menu a mix of classic favourites (i.e. duck rilettes) and inventive new dishes (fried artichokes a standout) plus dishes that feel like classics already...despite my heartbreak at losing the last portion of braised rabbit to another table, once again myself two other Terroirs stalwarts had a fine time...must not forget the great wine list, charming service and the general atmosphere..which never palls. Bravo to the max.
Great spot with a beguilingly simple menu - lots of unexpected dishes and divine Savarin cheese. Excellent variety of wines by the glass and helpful staff.
Menu is limited as always but choices are good and good quality is high and seems always improving. Wine choices are excellent and quality is very good. A real gem in central London.
Excellent choice of wine and well thought dishes.
Service was really good as well in a lovely atmosphere. There’s no air conditioning, so on a day like Friday we kind of missed it even if all the windows were open. Other than that, it has been a very good experience, so much that today we’ll try the sister Terroirs restaurant in Dulwich
Exquisite wine bar with lovely food and a very French and charming look. Nice charcuterie — enjoyed the salami and cornichons. Great atmosphere; was fairly full when we went.
Overall, an enjoyable dining experience. The food was excellent and authentic. The wine was pretty expensive for being a wine supplier based restaurant but some good bargains can be found just not as much as I would have liked to see. Service from the waitress and host were very welcoming and respectful but the bar staff had a bit of arrogance in conversation with us at times that dampened the evening a little...countering back to my colleague “I heard you the first time” when he enquired about food.
Very poor menu with little choice. Food was substandard and largely tasteless. Certainly won't be going back again.
A great lunch venue. A lively but comfortable wine bar/restaurant with excellent food and wine at very good value. The service is excellent too!
Like coming home. Simplicity and perfection. And wine that can teach you something new every time
Terroirs is one of my favourite eateries when I come into central London, however on a hot day it was quite trying, despite fans being on everywhere. The food was very nice and accompanied by a good glass of wine. the makerel was fresh and tasty. Good.
We had oysters, and some other small plates with a carafe of wine before the theatre. It was good but would like to go back to properly test
Terroirs is one of my favourite restaurants; it never disappoints and there is always something new on the menu that is worth trying.
I'm a huge natural wine fan and found this after a quick google search. It was exactly what I was looking for; food was amazing, wine was even better!
This really is a place to go for the atmosphere and the wine. The food selection is pretty limited, without a great deal of choice. Good for a quick lunch as long as you don't mind it being very noisy
Fantastic cod dish was the highlight of the evening.
Outstanding lunch before a matinee show - everything was delicious and the service was excellent. Of particular note were the friend Jerusalem artichokes with Goats curd & leeks....not to be missed.
Fantastic wines, great food, and friendly service. They moved us from where we initially sat for a more aerated table and less noisy, which was brilliant. Otherwise, it can be quite noisy, but well worth it!
Food was delicious... can highly recommend a selection of small plates - all of them really tasty. As with all quality restaurants, this place keeps choices to a minimum, but quality excellent. Wine and therefore the whole meal quite expensive- over £60 per head, but it wouldn’t stop me returning.
Would be nice to have a small choice of quality cocktails- say a long, short and a seasonal one, although I appreciate this place has a huge selection of quality wines.
Our waitress was very polite, helpful and efficient, and although we stayed for a long meal, never felt hurried by anyone, although towards the end, some dishes took a little longer.
Overall ambience very pleasant- better at the front than the back, which is a little dark.
Terroirs continues to be one of my trusted restaurants for entertaining. It's not just that food (bread is five-stars) and wine are excellent value for money, but staff are incredibly nice and helpful. This time, my favourite wine was not available but I was recommended one I didn't know and his now on my list for next time.
Great atmosphere, good service, good location. A limited dinner menu. Worth a visit.
The food and wine was good or very good as usual. However, our welcome, by the male member of staff, was peremptory at best and although we had asked on line for a table by the window, we were directed to a tiny table downstairs hemmed in by other tightly grouped tables. I asked for a table by the window as my guest is 6 foot 7 inches tall. Even if the on line message had not got through it didn't take a lot of thought to see that my guest might not be comfortable in the tight confines of the available table. Even an acknowledgement of the issue and a promise to find a better table if one became available would have been appreciated but it was as if we had not been noticed. The waitress was far more sensitive generally to myself and my guest responding to requests for advice/humour/etc. and generally exhibited some interpersonal skills. Sorry about the moan but we both independently noticed this.
Good value as always, good service! :)
Good, simple and delicious food, great, well-crafted wine and wonderful, individual and deft staff.
Close to the Harp. What’s not to like. A convenient spot near Charing Cross
Terroirs was having an off day. We went early and were not made to feel welcome. Our waiter was good & consideraré but the manager was noticeably brusque & rude with his team and customers including us. Not acceptable.
Love the food, the wine, the staff - Amazing as always, thank you x
Outstanding and extensive wine list. The food menu is small but changes regularly and the food is excellent
Small place, awesome food but can be a bit noisy at peak hours.
