SquareMeal Review of Terroirs

"VERY GOOD"

Offering an authentic slice of Gallic charm just off Trafalgar Square, Terroirs is a regular hit with readers who rate the "buzzy and lively" atmosphere, hearty charcuterie platters and garlicky snails. The seasonal menu changes daily, but always focuses on the freshest ingredients, with confident flavour combinations allowing them to shine through: we’d single out a starter of simply grilled mackerel paired with a punchy celeriac rémoulade, as well as melt-in-the-mouth Ibérica pluma (a neck cut) accompanied by earthy cavolo nero and rich pepper sauce. Exemplary steak tartare, the signature pork terrine and duck rillettes slathered on crusty baguettes are also good calls, ahead of cheeses and desserts such as poached pear with bergamot custard and pecan brittle. Like its siblings Soif and Toasted, Terroirs is big on ‘natural’ wine, with a joyous list featuring sustainable, organic and biodynamic bottles from artisan producers. Ask the clued-up staff for recommendations and buy your favourites to take home.

We had a lovely meal. Sharing plates, The smoked eel was excellent and the Burrata. The atmosphere was buzzy and lively and the service was very good. An enjoyable pre theatre meal. I recommend this restaurant, and will return when we have more time to spend over our meal!

A very varied and adventurous menu, which didn't disappoint. An extremely knowledgeable waiter on both the food and the wine. The wine we had was so good I have looked it up and bought a case today. One caveat is it is a noisy, bustling and quite frenetic restaurant, which is great if that's what you are looking for, perhaps not if something more low key. That being said, it is a very fun atmosphere, and downstairs is far more subdued when open.
