Chef Vincent Crepel embarked on his culinary journey in France, honing his skills in esteemed international establishments such as the illustrious three-Michelin-starred Arzak in San Sebastián, Spain, the acclaimed Restaurant André in Singapore, and the historic Restaurant de l'Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, Switzerland.

Now, Crepel has set his sights on creating an extraordinary dining experience, showcasing his vast creative expertise.

Recently, Crepel unveiled his inaugural restaurant in Ireland, Terre, nestled within the enchanting seventeenth-century manor house of Castlemartyr Resort in Co. Cork.

Terre promises to transport guests into a world of modern and immersive dining, curated by the culinary mastermind himself.

Crepel seamlessly combines age-old French cooking techniques with a profound Asian influence derived from his immersive experiences in the region.

His culinary philosophy revolves around the essence and flavors of exceptional ingredients, elevated to their utmost purity.

To complement this culinary excellence, Terre offers an extensive drinks and wine selection, showcasing family-owned grower-producers who employ minimal intervention methods in crafting their biodynamic and organic wines.
