Date Night Dishes: Terras at CIVANA

Hidden away in the hills of Carefree lies CIVANA, a one-of-a-kind wellness resort and spa designed for the ultimate in relaxation. While the hotel is designed for relaxation of the body and mind, their restaurant, Terras is designed to nourish the body, and your appetite. And better still, Terras makes for a perfect date night destination. 

Resting adjacent to the lobby of CIVANA, Terras features an elegant bar and lounge area ready to entertain diners before heading into the restaurants main, awe-inspiring dining room. With floor to ceiling windows, the view of the surrounding mountains and nearby pool is quite breathtaking. But the view is only just the beginning of an elegant, savory dinner.

Featuring a gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan menu, the food at Terras is, quite simply, amazing. Priding themselves on being free of GMO’s, hydrogenated fats, hormones and preserves, Terras sets itself apart and is a delicious farm-to-table restaurant.

For an appetizer, we started with the Blue Corn Crusted Calamari and it was delicious. (The Thai Coconut Mussels sounded good, too.) The crust was just perfect, and went very well with the calamari.

For our main courses, we had the Diver Scallops and the Chili Honey Glazed Salmon. Having had a fair share of scallops over the years, I can attest to this being some of the best I’ve ever had. They were seared to perfection and fantastic cauliflower rice as a side. As good as the scallops were, the cauliflower rice was even better. The salmon was equally delicious. Served with a whipped sweet potato which is worth driving just for that alone, the salmon was cooked perfectly and very flavorful.

Terras has a range of desserts as well. From Strawberry Shortcake to a trio of locally made Gelato’s, there is something to satisfy every sweet tooth. Perfect for sharing, or if you want to order a couple for even more choices, the desserts are the perfect sweet ending to the meal.

If you’re wanting to get away from the bustle of the real world and want to enjoy an exquisite dinner in a relaxing, refreshing, nurturing spot, then Terras needs to be your destination. From the exquisite food, the fantastic service and the stellar dining accomodations, Terras is a must visit destination, and a perfect spot for you and your significant other.
