Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Just off Trafalgar Square, rustic French cooking and a wine list that's an encyclopaedia of organic and biodynamic bottles - highly recommended.

If you want to find out what the whole natural wine thing is all about, pay a visit to Terroirs. These minimally manipulated wines (most organic and/or biodynamic, made with little intervention from the winemakers) form nearly the whole list, and they keep this rustic-French-looking place jumping. Plenty varieties are offered by the glass, and while it’s not bargain-basement cheap, it accurately reflects the cost of producing these wines.

And you won't be disappointed if you’re more interested in the food than the vino. The always-crowded ground floor has a casual feel and a menu to match, focused on small plates for sharing. You can sample some of the same dishes in the atmospheric and surprisingly roomy basement, which feels more like a restaurant: the menu here, with its focus on rustic French dishes, seems designed to guide diners towards a more traditional starter-main-dessert approach.
