Long-standing wine bar and eatery a minute's walk from Charing Cross
I’ve been meaning to try here for quite some time and am very glad to be able to now add this to the overall site. Terroirs serves Spanish, Italian and French cuisine, many in tapas format with a menu that changes regularly. I loved the informality and drop-in ease of this bistro which is open for dining all day with just a lowered service of charcuterie between 3-6pm. For wine lovers this will be a hit of a place, if you want to quickly have a glass of something with cheese via counter dining and if my experience of this place is anything to go by, you will be well looked after.
My snails on toast with garlic and parsley sauce was simple and wonderful with lovely pancetta (although I could have done with the two bits of bone removed from the pancetta before being served) and the wine (Italian Rosso di Caparsa) was chosen very well as something light to go with this and the cheese. The salted caramel at the bottom of the chocolate pot gave a superb boost to the chocolate and it finished off a highly pleasant meal.
I did not know of the group’s sister restaurants, Soif in Battersea and ToastE.D. in Dulwich and have no doubt they will be good to try if in the area. Terroirs showed me a good option for a bite or a glass of vino alike and is firmly in the database as comfortable and easy going option with simple quality.
