Terra Restaurant Sample Menu

Chef Marcus draws on inspiration from the surrounding area and the fantastic produce that the subtropical climate of Northland is known for.

Terra Restaurants menus not only change according to the seasons but also when new produce becomes available or when our chefs get that creative spark to include a new menu Item, so expect ever evolving dishes and a few hidden extra special treats.

We look forward to sharing our passionate food story with you
