The unpretentious ambience and dressed-down décor belie multi award-winning chef Michael Broughton’s rigorously disciplined approach to food. Classic pairings and intense depth of flavour characterize the chalkboard menu of ‘deceptively simple’ dishes influenced by what’s in season and, where possible, the use of locally grown fresh produce. With a focus on creating a delightful culinary experience, Terroir’s winelist offers a selection of wines, which were specifically selected with to live up to the quality and style of the food. Naturally, all of Kleine Zalze’s wines are available - even some older vintages, which are exclusively available to Terroir guests. In addition, a number of carefully chosen South African and international labels are represented on the restaurant’s extensive list.
Terroir’s ongoing success has brought with it a string of prestigious awards, including the Eat Out Johnny Walker ‘Restaurant of the Year 2006’, Eat Out ‘Service Excellence Award 2006’, Eat Out ‘Top 10 Restaurant’ 2005 and 2006, Dine (Wine magazine) ‘Top 10 Restaurant’ in 2005, 2006 and 2007, and Best of Wine Capitals of the World South African Wine Tourism Restaurant of the Year 2006. A separate function room next to Kleine Zalze’s cellar is available for functions and weddings. In addition, Kleine Zalze’s lush gardens surrounded by vineyards, are a perfect setting for al fresco weddings.
