Terroirs has been serving true food and pouring natural wine since 2008. A London institution and industry favourite, it's still a must visit place for foodies where you can rub shoulders with international winemakers.

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.

Not French mustard in my lapin au moutard, and a bit too much pesto on the aubergine (oily) but I enjoyed myself and the food was generally good. I'll be back.

My partner and I dined here pre-theatre on a Friday evening. My anchovy starter complete with instructions was one of the most delicious things I have eaten in a while. As ever food amazing, service perfect and an extensive wine list. Can’t wait to be back next week

This is the third time I have been to this restaurant. Each time I have told them we need to be out by a certain time to go to the theatre. Each time the first course has been delivered quickly and each time the wait for the second course has been unacceptable: each time I have had to complain and each time the response has been lackadaisical. It is such a pity as the food is excellent, but I advise against going to this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal.

The quality of the food and wine is excellent. This is the closest thing to being in France that we have found in London. We love the rillettes and always find other dishes that please us. A bit pricey but worth it. One of our favorite places.

Lovely bistro - perfect for a pre-theatre bite. The service was charming and attentive, the charcuterie board delicious and we enjoyed a carafe of interesting Sicilian white. The place has a nice, buzzy atmosphere and is very convenient for Charing Cross Road and St Martin's Lane theatres.

Smallest ever main course portion sizes for £22. It has the air of being run by YTS ie people who’ve never run a restaurant before. We weren’t offered bread and had to ask for it for the cheese course - 4 lumps of cheese were just brought on a plate- no butter, no grapes, no celery, no walnuts, no chutney, no dates, no nothing. I wouldn’t recommend

Terroirs is a great place is you like authentic French food. The menu is regularly changed so you are prompted to try different things. You can of course always go for their great charcuterie. One of the best French wine lists you'll come across - with lots of different wines from a variety of regions. I

Three of us booked in here for lunch after attending a busy morning event. We chose several starters to share between us as tapas and were not disappointed. The food was unexpected, very tasty and imaginative, the wine; a rose, was refreshing and just right for a warm summer's day. The staff were helpful and advised on our choices after asking what sort of meal we were looking for. I have no hesitation in recommending Terroir and will definitely go back in the future.

Terroirs has a great atmosphere but the food choice was very limited for non pork eaters and charging £32 for anchovies no matter how special seemed excessive.

Terriors is always a pleasure and this visit was no exception. The wine list is extensive and can feel a little overwhelming but the waiters are knowledgable and happy to assist. The menu is relatively limited but is good. Besides you come to Terriors first and foremost for the wine. The charcuterie and cheese selection is fabulous and is, in my experience, all you need to soak up the fabulous wine.

We chose Terroirs for a pretheatre dinner. We had been a few years ago when red label roast chicken was the star and found the menu was very different - and delicious. We shared coarse duck rilettes which were deliciously meaty and asparagus with goat curd and crustacean salt. Then each of us chose slow roasted belly pork. We also had a carafe of rosé - South African wine as they were hosting two SA winemakers that evening. Everything was delicious and the portions were so generous that we didn’t get to dessert even though we had plenty of time.

I would rate this place higher but for the price. It's a lovely wine bar and I would recommend to friends albeit with the warning be prepared to pay a lot. Nice wines, nice cheeses and cold meats. Very very good service. The waitress let my wife and friend try several wines before they found one to their taste which makes a nice change for England. But saying that, it is too expensive, my friend was stunned when we got our bill. I work 2 minutes from Terroirs and the only reason I would go back is that you do not find many of this kind of authentic wine bar in London. If they dropped their prices I would probably visit every week.

Terriors has been my number one go to wine bar since 2009. The wine list can be daunting, but the staff know their wines and always makes excellent wine choices. The pork and pistachio terrine is top of my list of things to eat.

Default stance seems to be to offer the worst table available, until you ask to be moved. Very cramped inside.

Staff seem very hectic and rushed. Most can't speak English beyond telling you they'll (eventually) fetch the one waiter who can.

Good food. Good wine list. No bargains to be had, but generally reasonably priced.

Outstanding value set lunch
Terroirs has a superb selection of wines and a simple but beautifully cooked and presented menu. It is a great place to explore some great tastes but the set lunch also offers outstanding value for those who want a small plate and a decent glass of wine (£10 for the combination) for a simple and quick lunch = which is a great way of getting good quality without being extravagant.

I didn’t think there was a great deal of choice and not great value for money. The charcuterie board was tiny (for the price). A 3course meal at Cote for less than the price of the Charcuterie board. However that probably doesn’t worry them too much as they were pretty full. The tomato salad was, however, absolutely delicious.
