I would give 6 stars, if I had one more… the place is amazing! We went there twice in a row!

It starts with a lovely, well-performed service… so attentive and caring, we felt in very good hands. Then, they start surprising you with this exceptional food, each course a masterpiece in itself, we LOVED it… and the staff is explaining the details throughout with so much passion, it just tastes even better…

A nice welcoming change to all those burger, pizza and fries places. THANK YOU! One of my favorite places in New Zealand now!

If you look for regular food, you will not get it here! If you are open-minded and ready to explore, this might be YOUR place too.

Amazing experience, exceptional service and menu.
One of the best dining experiences I have had in New Zealand. The presentation was unbelievable, everything that came out and went past our table I wanted to taste. Next time (and yes we will drive up from Auckland just for this) we will have the tasting menu.
The view is great but you will constantly be distracted by the meals going past.

best rissoto ever ! I was looking for a light healthy meal and found a chef’s rissoto with citrus flav bursting fresh green herbs and I believe green spanish olives. Must try first experience at TERRA I am visiting 5 more days and will be back . The elevated waterfront views complete dining experience in a predominantly fishing / tourist port a MUST !

Insanely good from the food to the service. The Eel starter was so delightful and the duck was a vision to look at and even better to eat.

Talented chef Marcus presents interesting dishes, great visually and very tasty as well. The degustation menu terrific but also a la carte options during lunch and dinner as well.
