Terroirs Wine Bar | London

Terroir is a term created by French winemakers used to describe the sense of environment which gives wine its personality. A restaurant and wine bar named after this term will have lots to live up to in its wine department. But I have to say, they have shown flare in the wine list and knowledge the staff shown.

The ground floor space has a feel of a Parisian wine bar. It was vibrant and buzzing with people enjoying themselves. An evening to start off with charcuterie, wine and cheese, these is the place to be. As we were not able to get a reservation on this buzzing floor, we booked for the downstairs restaurant instead. It has a more romantic dining ambience and a different menu more for a more conventional flare of starter, main course and dessert rather than charcuterie and small plates the ground floor bar has. Although both menu are different, they both have equally good choices.

Langoustines a la plancha was nice but a little soft, not the texture I would expect. The roe though, was tasty.

The Bouillabaisse had big chunks of fish and mussels accompanied with rouille, gruyère and croutons. It was lovely but not memorable.

The Welsh lamb chop with merguez and cous cous was well cooked. It came with well seasoned harissa aïoli which really brighten up the plate.

Treacle Tart was as it should be, sweet and treacly.

The Chocolate Marquise was honest and simple with intense chocolate flavour yet not too sweet, perfect to my liking. It was so moist and smooth it melts in the mouth. Its partner of pistachio Crème Anglaise sings with the marquise in perfect harmony.


Very knowledgeable staff and good friendly service,
With its extensive wine list and affordability, it is heaven for wine lovers.
The food were almost equally as good as the wine.


Low alcohol tolerance means more trips here to taste the wine.

Will I return?

A definite yes. Maybe next time with a date ;)
