“Excellent Tapas Restaurant”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Everytime we visit Terra Nostra we wonder why we're not there more often. We enjoy sitting at the bar where we can watch the food being cooked. The menu changes often and there's always something new. They have a wide selection of wines and spirits and outdoor seating is available during pleasant weather.

“Cozy gem with delightful food”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

With professional chefs on hand (including a pastry chef) using fresh ingredients, Terra Nostra can't be beat. The food is made on site, not frozen, and comes out as it's ready, so not every item ordered arrives at once. As a tapas restaurant, the portions are small, so keep that in mind. They will also have an offering of interesting dishes you probably won't get elsewhere, such as dates stuffed with bacon wrapped cheese or a type of quail pâté. I'm not as adventurous as others and prefer a delicious filet mignon dish or the asparagus au gratin. Last night's dessert, among many, was almond paste cake with chocolate mousse and raspberry sauce. I'm ready to go back!! Parking is in the back of the restaurant, so don't let busy Frazier Ave keep you away. The restaurant is full of original art and gorgeous colors. It's rather small, so I recommend making a reservation on weekends.

“Great Tapa's and Wine”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

Enjoyed Terra Nostra with the vast selection of small plate dishes to share. The blue puffs, artichoke dip were especially good. All of the choices were fresh and the presentations were very appealing. Good selection of wines and service was excellent.

“Tapas for Foodies!”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

Great place! Wonderfully friendly server, unique flavors, nice wine recommendations, pleasant al fresco dining: this place has it all.

Just remember to take your patience (Spanish cuisine values many things, but speed is not one of them) and your wallet (this is a place for a nice, light dinner, not a cheap one.)

“don't go here, you'll regret it”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

This was the worst $80 snack I've ever had. My wife and I had one glass of wine and some tapas. We left hungry and disappointed. I thought the point of tapas was to get small portions of amazing food. We received small portions of sub par food. The quality was such that I would expect an entire entree of that quality for the price of the tiny tapas plate I received.
