TerroirLocated on family-owned wine farm Kleine Zalze, Terroir is the very definitely of laid-back luxury. Since the restaurant opened in 2004, diners haven’t stopped raving about chef Michael Broughton’s modern South African fare, from the baby beef tartare with burned aubergine purée, to the braised beef cheek with pickled vegetables. In summer, it’s best to reserve a spot on the patio under the shade of the large oak trees. In winter, however, opt for a table inside by the fireplace. Then, pair your meal with some of Kleine Zalze’s award-winning chenin blanc or shiraz. Most wines are available by the glass or carafe so you try a couple during your visit.
