Outstanding, effort 450gm steak on a hot stone been here twice for this meal, was awesome and would recommend it, I could have eaten 2 of them each time. The plates the stones come out on are not designed for the chips or salads at the side, did find them annoying to eat from. but the steak was awesome

Nice restaurant food at an obviously popular bar. A bit cold for us with the door open and the locals didn't seem to mInd - they had shorts and jandals on when we had jeans and shoes! Well worth a visit.

Was greeted as soon as we walked in the door and given our choice of tables. Waiter was a friendly young guy who seated us. We both ordered the mixed grill and was delighted with the choice and variety it offered. The meat is brought to you on a hot stone and cooks in front of you to your liking.... More

Had dinner here with 20 others while on a conference. Didn't arrive until approx. 9.15 pm (although this had been preadvised). Dinner was served promptly even with the lateness and the number of guests. Meals were good size and price. Staff friendly and helpful.

We've been here quite often but found on a busy sat rugby night the service and meals took over an hour to be delivered and sadly not up to the usual standard. I feel the staff need to be quicker and more efficient but they are very friendly as the meals are fairly simple and a prime spot to get... More

We went to The Terrace last Thursday and were greeted by friendly waitstaff who provided excellent service throughout. The menu had a great selection of meals - something for everyone! Steaks, salad, vegetarian dishes, chicken and pork. My friend had the chicken and bacon salad and loved it so much she went back the next day for lunch too! I... More
