Description: This spot has a well-deserved long-standing reputation. Expect to find consistent food (that ever-elusive ingredient to success) and friendly, efficient service thanks to the personal care of the owner, Olivier, and his family team. This popular Paarl restaurant offers an intriguing mix of European-style dishes with the best that this area has to offer. The owners, Olivier and Delenia Jaeggi-Wright, he being Swiss and she of Italian descent, bring a European sensibility to a cuisine that is never precious, but concentrates on maximum flavour in generous portions - the kind of cooking that has made it a favourite with the locals for many years. Helping Olivier with the cooking is Thabo Nqadini, who has been at Terra Mare for 9 years, adding his very own African touch to the Swiss style of the house....

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

If you ever visit Paarl, please don't miss this restuarant. Excellent cuisine and wine, and do not miss the creme brulee for dessert. You will not be disappointed.

I was passing through Paarl (from Texas) recently and had lunch here and had the Gnocchi - it was fantastic! The restaurant and service were very good - I would stop here again.

“A must visit”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

The restaurant is very plain but welcoming in atmosphere. Although it is up market, still very child friendly with special dishes from the chef fro little tummies. The best fish I had in many years and the cream brule was out of this world! The presentation of the food is also beautiful on the plate.
