Really enjoyed our lunch here. Beautiful food, and lovely friendly service. By far the best restaurant in Paihia. Many thanks for a lovely experience!

I’m absolutely blown away!!! We came here after coming off the ferry, without booking or checking it out first....well what a gem!!! We do eat out a lot and that is kind of a food I would expect in London, Paris or NY, not in...Paihia. Presentation, flavours, balance it was all just spot on!! Service was as outstanding, our French waiter-Emery was a true professional!! One of the best restaurants I have been in years!!!More

Stunning view overlooking the Paihia wharf. A perfect way to spend an evening watching the boats come and go. The food was delicious, very expertly prepared and our Waiter was accomplished and friendly. They even managed to produce a special birthday treat for my companion...free of charge.More

Fantastic location. Great service and exceptional food. The scallops were the best I’ve ever had! Couldn’t recommend any higher.

Clearly the best restaurant in the area that went the extra mile. Would be a welcome addition to any major city. If it's top end dining (at a reasonable price) you want then, this is it for Paihia. Superb views from the balcony too. We...ended up going twice it was so delicious.More

Super impressed by service, the restaurant went out their way to accommodate us on a busy New Years eve and staff were very attentive during our visit. The food was amazing, every little detail was superb. The cocktails were very innovative and delicious. All around...fabulousMore

A top notch meal. Was unsure what to expect, but the photos looked good when we were choosing where to go. We were not disappointed. Chef has a real flare.

Delicious dining and exceptional wait staff. If you appreciate a fine dining experience with attentive, friendly service, overlooking beautiful Paihia, go to Terra. Can't recommend highly enough. We chose Terra on the basis of its Trip Advisor review, and it exceeded expectations. Thank you Terra.

I have eaten in many places in my almost 50 years but this wee unassuming place had simply the best food I have eaten ever. If you book you can sit out on the veranda with a stunning view over the bay. The food looked...like a work of art and tasted even better. The staff were fabulous and extremely professional and I was amazed at how the kitchen and front of house staff worked like a well oiled machine. I cannot recomend this place highly enough.More
