A planned reunion with another "foodie" couple at Terre turned into a lunch of perfection. From the glorious driveway hugging the vineyard to the old homestead - lovingly and tastefully restored - Terre surprised and delighted us. This is what top class Australian restaurants do best - amazing dishes served in a relaxed yet professional manner in a glorious setting.
A cold Victorian day is the perfect reason to jump in the car and escape to the peninsula for not just a meal but a reminder about just how good life can be. Cheers to all the Terre staff!

Had lunch here with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Nice food, nice wine list, nice service and good ancillaries. Would definitely return and will soon!

Set within the boundaries of Dromana Estate, this top notch restaurant has much to offer. Mr. & Mrs. Herrald run the entire operation behind-the-scenes, and they leave nothing wanting. Their fresh, seasonal pickings are exquistly partnered...from protein to starch to sauce to wine. Foie Gras brulee...surreal. The baklava...the best I've ever had.

Clinton, a very sincere "thank you." The front-of-the-house service is all class. You made us smile from beginning to end.

Is it pricey? Of course, as the entire experience is a work of art. Your palate will thank your wallet.

This was my first visit back to Dromana Estate since the renovations and the opening of the new Terre restaurant. We were looked after beautifully by Clinton and his lovely team. They accommodated my dairy free needs very well and all members of our party were more than satisfied. Great food, the palate cleanser between meals was well appreciated. The renovations are great and open up this lovely old homestead beautifully. Lovely crackling fire in winter and outside verandah for balmy summer days. A lovely old homestead to visit in the heart of our lovely Mornington Peninsula wine region, with easy access from the MP freeway. A lovely old homestead to have a lazy lunch.

We visited Terre last week with a large group of diners. The evening was a true food adventure and enjoyed by everyone. Limited choices but delicious combination of flavours and unusual ingredients. The foie gras brûlée was fantastic as was my fish main. Atmosphere is delightful and decor sophisticated. Warm and welcoming staff made our night a fabulous dining experience. The wines are quite expensive and maybe some more of Dromana Estate wines could be included. Our only criticism. Excellent as a special occasion venue and for lovers of fine dining.
