Description: OUR STORY In 2011, hotel and restaurant industry professionals Andrea and David decided to make a go of it on their own. Their idea was simple; partner with equally passionate local producers to showcase the best of the Thompson region in a fun, creative setting. Four years later, Chef David’s award winning cuisine along with a stellar line up of wines, beers and delectable cocktails have made Terra a local favorite. FRESH We believe in cooking with the seasons. We change our menu monthly to reflect ingredients at their peak. So there’s no asparagus in November, no pumpkins in May and certainly no fava beans in January. What you do get though, is an inspired, creative team excited to work with local farmers, ranchers and artisans who provide us with exceptional products. LIQUID ASSETS You wouldn’t expect to find Canadian wines at a small restaurant in Australia would you? Our wines, beers and spirits are carefully selected from small, quality producers right here in BC. Some in fact, are just down the street. We are proud of our relationships with craft brewers, distillers and wineries as they allow us to showcase the exceptional products of our region. JOIN US We recommend making a reservation, especially during busy times like weekends or holiday weekends. We appreciate larger groups calling ahead to book space. If you are out and would like to drop in, please do so, knowing you will always be welcome. At Terra Restaurant, we pride ourselves on serving our guests the very best locally sourced, organic and most authentic food each and every day. Our traditional recipes and approach to preparing the meals we serve is what sets us apart from the rest. With the freshest ingredients at hand in our community each menu item starts with incredible taste. If there's one thing we pride ourselves on, it's complete customer satisfaction. From the time you walk through the door to the time we have to say goodbye, we ensure that you've had the very best dining experience. We treat everyone that walk through our door like family and want you to feel that way. From the care that goes into preparing our meals to the smiling faces of our staff.

“Nice treat!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We were travelling through and spending the night in Kamloops so looked for a good spot for dinner. This place was delightful - pleasant service, fresh food, unusual and varied presentation. Great beet salad and very yummy tiramisu. Would recommend and would do again if I were in town.

“Word of warning”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

We went inside and sat down based on Trip Advisor's reviews. The prices do not match the $$ money sign listed in their header. This is considered a $$$$ restaurant and not $$. Every dish was $30+ .

“Fresh local ingredients paired with wonderful, friendly service”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We had lunch at Terra while driving through Kamloops. We were joined by friends who have a 9 month old daughter. One of our friends has extreme allergies and is always careful what he eats. I ordered the soup of the day which was a potato-leek soup accompanied by the quesadilla made with mushrooms, three cheeses and kale. It was delicious and filling. Our friends ordered the chicken sandwich with salad and/or soup and my husband ordered a tempura battered fish accompanied by a delicious salad made with local greens, other vegetables and orange segments. Our friends know the restaurant well and merely had to query potential allergans to find assurance that the staff remembered the allergy. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient. The multiple uses of the high chair were pointed out as the baby was asleep on arrival but then awoke. The high chair was reversed and the baby was comfortable and able to be part of the experience.

“Only if I had another day to come back!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I was unsure if I made the correct decision of making dining reservations at this quiet restaurant on a Saturday night. Best choice I made since arriving to Kamloops. I consider myself a foodie and dining all across the country the past few months, this is Kamloops dining gem. Romantic, clean, kid friendly and importantly great service. Hostess and executive chef frequently visited us to make sure we were doing well through out our dinner.

Recommend paying the small corkage fee (BYOW) and selecting the chef's tasting menu.
Well worth visiting and looking forward to coming back soon.

Great value, exceptional quality food focusing on local ingredients.
