This was our 5th or 6th visit to Terroirs since it opened, and we were pleased to see that it is still very busy. We tend to go quite late, after the theatre – very useful knowing somewhere near theatreland serving reasonable food at reasonable prices, and being so welcoming when you walk in at 10-15pm or 10-30pm. There is a surprising lack of such late eating places in London.
The food is generally good, of a simple earthy and hearty style, which some might find a bit heavy. Sometimes they are more miss than hit, but we tend to choose the simpler dishes, which we normally enjoy.
The waiting staff are usually very friendly, enthusiastic and speedy, and they seem to cope very well with the busy restaurant.
Terroirs is very much a café / bistro style setup, with very close tables, what seems like quite a high table turnover, and a generally slightly frantic noisy atmosphere; which I quite like. Therefore, I think its better suited to a quick in and out bite to eat, rather than a long lingering meal.
They have a very good wine list, with some nice French regional choices.
Overall, I would say it is a very good bistro / café style restaurant for a quick hearty type meal with some decent wine, in a generally very poorly served tourist tat area. Not quite as well suited to low cal eating, a posh night out, or if you're looking for a quiet calm environment.
