Terroir Restaurant, situated on the family owned Kleine Zalze Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, has further entrenched itself as one of the top eateries in South Africa by winning a coveted spot on the American Express list of the country’s top restaurants for 2018 and 2019.

Now in its 20th year, the American Express Platinum Fine Dining Awards culminate in a definitive list that honours and rewards chefs and restaurants that are delivering the perfect culinary experience. The 2018 Cape Town awards ceremony took place on Monday 01 October at Embassy Hill in Constantia and Terroir took a deserved spot amongst SA’s most exceptional eateries.

Terroir is no stranger to accolades, consistently appearing on the list of Top 10 Restaurants in South Africa.  Last year Terroir was awarded One Plate status in the 2018 edition of the JHP Gourmet Guide™, acknowledging the restaurant’s “excellent cuisine”.

With a string of national awards offered to the restaurant in its 14-year existence, a consistent 4.5 (out of 5) vote of excellence on Tripadvisor and a stream of loyal guests, is clear that Terroir is well deserving of its superb dining status. The picture perfect position under the oak trees at Kleine Zalze Estate sets a laidback tone as does the daily blackboard menu, peppered with perfectly sauced specialities that reflect Michael’s penchant for Euro-influenced dishes with a pared-down and local twist.

Terroir opened in October 2004, and is now one of the most sought-after gourmet destinations in the Western Cape – having earned a reputation for outstanding and inventive cuisine and excellent service, with a menu that evolves with the seasons and with the inspiration and direction of Chef Michael Broughton, whose style of cooking is described as ‘deceptively simple’.

Terroir is open for lunch from Tuesdays to Sundays from 12h00 – 14h30 and for dinner from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 18h30 – 21h00. Advance reservations are highly recommended. To book call 021 880-8167 or email restaurant@kleinezalze.co.za
