    Even though there was an issue with the booking, Terra staff made us feel welcome and ensured we received the best service and quality of food and drink that could be provided. Always love your food. Thanks

    We were seated at an share table even though we made a reservation almost as an afterthought, which was disappointing! However the wait staff were lovely, polite and attentive but the potato croquette was inedible and at $6 for a 20c piece of “yuk” definitely a rouse for your money ! Other than that the setting is very rustic but really this restaurant caters better for larger groups, as the plates are designed to be shared in a communal setting ! So if your looking for a romantic night as a couple out, probably look elsewhere ! As a side point definitely try the “fuck trump and his stupid fucking wall “ is a winner neat or as a cocktail !

    Great service and good atmosphere. Wine is very expensive and poor options for mid to low range. The meat was really good and the side although very tasty were a bit small for the price.

    A smaller restaurant, so probably best to book. The food is consistently good. Menu items are designed to share. Prices are about where you might expect- chips are about $8, and a half chicken about $19, with desserts in the range $11 to $15. Service a very good - staff are not intrusive, but always there promptly when you need them. Recommended, you’ll enjoy it.

    I went to Terra on the back of all the great reviews on Fork. As a first time user of Fork I wasn’t sure what to expect and also invited some close friends and did not want to disappoint, Well both Fork and importantly Terra did not let me down! The Terra Team were friendly and attentive The food was great and served timely I will be back!

    Great selection of small and large plates, and attentive service. Would have preferred a table rather than the window bench with a sidewalk view, as we had a booking, but it was still an enjoyable experience.

    Some of the best meals happen when you don't have any preconceptions. Had only been for breakfast previously. V day dinner at Terra did not disappoint - service was friendly and accomodating, food was really tasty without trying too hard and the matched wines were amazing. It seemed to be a great team effort from the staff and this created an enjoyable atmosphere.

    Last night dinner was one of the best enjoyable meals that I had in a while. Yes, the service was great and the atmosphere is nice. But the food was so delicious, all the flavours mixing in an incredible way. We had tomahawk steak, fat fries, and charred broccolini. Red wine from Laughing Jack was also very good.

    It was a mistake to book online. On arriving at Terra we found we were allocated stools at a bar, not at a table. We went ahead with the booking but sitting (albeit on stools with back rests) at a narrow bench side by side facing a glass wall made the delicious food much less enjoyable. We won't be rushing back and will book in person in future.

    Staff were excellent. Friendly attentive and good knowledge of menu and allowed us to try the wines. Good mixture of food and flavours. Only thing I found a bit bland was miso sauce with the broccolini. Music a bit too loud.

    Well done Team Terra. Great service and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the octopus and the suckling pig was fabulous. Generous serves also and a very good beverage menu. Would recommend some more Canberra region wines however which is a positive feature of many other Canberra restaurants. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience and highly recommended.

    Delicious food and easy set dining menu option for an indecisive group. Great outdoor seating option for groups as well. Lamb ribs a little difficult to cut up and share ????
