We had wanted to come to Terra for a while and eventually went last night. It was beautiful. From the moment we stepped in the door to when we left, the service was amazing. Friendly, professional, faultless. There were four of us and we all loved everything! The food looks beautiful and also tastes beautiful, This will be our go to restaurant now - birthdays, anniversaries, a Saturday... :) We are so lucky to have Terra right on our doorstep.

From the view, to the staff and the menu, you couldn't have asked for anything better. No better way to enjoy an evening with friends looking up to Waitangi as the sun is setting.
The food was first class and although the portions were not large everyone came away satisfied and we have some big eaters in our group.
The staff were very attentive without being intrusive; the water glasses always seemed to be full.
Would definitely recommend and next time we are back in Paihia we will be going back.

I’m always skeptical of TripAdvisor but Terra lives up to its fluid 5 star reviews!

Beautifully decorated and clean pleasant and pleasant staff

The little salt bowls in the middle of the table a cute added touch - I want one of those mini salt
scoops!

The bread with burnt chilli & yoghurt so simple but done so well- amazing

Cauliflower main course full of flavour and filling!

Courgette/Zucchini - OMG pine nuts goats cheese salt - delish!!!

My only gripe is $14 for a standard gin and being charged $4.50 for a standard mixer on top..? Maybe it’s a northlands thing?

Would highly recommend and would go back

Stunning restaurant. From the venue (with views out over the beautiful Paihia harbour), to the service, to the food. The food was exemplary. Not huge portions, but perfectly balanced - my husband is a big eater and he left feeling replete, but not overstuffed. Very creative and artistically done - obviously food is their passion and they do it so well. Everything we ordered was truly exceptional and their drinks menu was perfect too. Highly recommend for a special evening.

We booked for dinner here on our wedding anniversary. We were offered two options - book for the 5.30-8pm slot or for 8pm til late.
We had a table right at the front with views across the grass to the wharf, the bay, and beyond. In one direction we could even see all the way to the treaty ground at Waitangi. On a fine February evening, what a beautiful spot to relax. And it’s not only the view that impresses here. Great food, we loved the side dishes, extra touches like a complimentary amuse bouche, an excellent cheese, fruit and treats option which went so well with port and dessert wine after the mains, good service .... and when they heard it was our anniversary, out came a little extra treat to finish with. Yup, the total package.
