A restaurant with great food inspired by the local landscape and near by sea, using traditional cooking methods.


Chef Matthew Swift has been working in kitchens in Ontario and Quebec for almost two decades, in which he has worked alongside great cooks and chefs. Before leaving the mainland, Chef Swift had the pleasure of heading the kitchen of Joe Beef, a beloved Montreal institution. 


Chef Swift fell in love with Newfoundland and Labrador on his first trip to the Rock, in 2017. He is inspired by its people, its food, its produce, its history and its great landscapes. While he has not grown up in the province, he hopes to bring an all-Canadian fare using the best of what Newfoundland has to offer. 


For Chef Swift, a restaurant should be welcoming, approachable and comfortable. It should reflect and respect its environment. And that is exactly what he hoping to achieve with Terre Restaurant, a Canadian restaurant in Newfoundland and Labrador.
