“At Terre, my hope is to bring you on a special journey, and to share with you my very personal vision of a modern restaurant experience. My food is rooted in classical French technique yet alive with the bright, exciting flavours of Asia. I will introduce you to wonderful wines from small producers chosen to honour exceptional ingredients. My aim is for your dining experience at Terre to bring pleasure to your being and joy to your soul.”
Starting his career in France, Crepel subsequently worked in several renowned international restaurants from the three-Michelin-star Arzak in San Sebastian, Spain, and Restaurant Andre in Singapore to the historic Restaurant Hôtel de Ville Crissier, in Switzerland.
Commenting at the time of receiving the award, Crepel said: “Gaining a star after such a brief period of time is a source of immense pride to me and my team at Terre. It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this level so quickly. It is a stunning and early reward for achieving our goals for Terre. I have been a devotee of the Michelin Guide since the very start of my career so to be awarded my first star as Chef Patron is an achievement I have long hoped for.”
He describes Terre as a modern and immersive dining experience using age-old French cooking methods coupled with an Asian influence. The option of paired wines and teas add to the experience of the tasting menu. Dinner is presented in Terre on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays with a Lunch service available on Friday & Saturdays.
“For many years I have admired Vincent Crepel from his time working in Singapore, my home city. It was a pleasure for me to ask him to come work with us in Cork to shape a unique restaurant for the hotel. I thank his team, both front and back of house, for their dedication and hard work. Gaining a Michelin star so quickly is an exceptional accolade for Terre, and I am exceptionally proud of their achievements” -Peng Loh, CEO Unlisted Collection
