  Terre a Terre
by amapola66

The first time I went to Terre a Terre was Feb 2005 - to celebrate 'The Singer's' birthday, and very nice it was too.

The food was delicious, although understanding the menu is somewhat tricky !
This is NOT 'rabbit food' - it is creatively presented, extremely tasty and I wish I was eating there again tonight!

Gorgeous nibbles such as "herb infused feta; soy steeped deep fried hoi sin sesame toasted tofu or sherry and balsamic vinegar coated sun-dried tomatoes, sodden socca - saffron, thyme and orange zest, drenched deep fried chick pea and sesame socca served with charred and marinated artichoke"...and so on tempt your taste buds.

The deserts were heavenly (shared one with The Singer). The singers friend had a huge chocolate concoction that looked like a chocolate lovers dream. All their food is of an extremely high quality.

As usual, we were the last ones in the restaurant, nattering away, and the staff didn't seem to mind too much.

The restaurant also has a good stock of organic wines and beers and a kids menu.

They now operate a no smoking policy, but sometimes allow smokers to have a quick puff on the small terrace oputside (spot me and the singer).

It is not cheap (mains average at around Ł12 although starters are very reasonable).
Highly recommended for all food lovers, vegetarian or not.

Just went back for lunch yesterday, and confirms it is one of the best retaurants in Brighton.

Update : Been back a few times now, the lat time with a friend who has an abnormal amout of food allergies and has not enjoyed a meal in a restaurant for some time. Not only did they take the time to discuss her allergies in great details, but they came up with something that looked jsutlike the version on the menu, but which wouldn't make her ill. - Fantastic

Favorite Dish: The menu changes regularly, but 'Port Pie' has been one of my faves.
Hard to describe - but including some paper thin pastry, a veggy sausage, delicious sauce, wine i think, two baby brussell sprouts and totally delicious!

Their sausage and mash is amazing.

Tip : Don't worry about what to order, just shut your eyes and pick - All food tastes good here.

Try a champagne coctail with fresh rasberries.

Everything served in this restaurant is good and the staff really know their stuff.
