Da Terra

Restaurant Da Terra

Da Terra is Rafael Cagali’s two-Michelin-starred restaurant located in Bethnal Green’s historic Town Hall Hotel, a building which originally dates back to 1910. Opened in January 2019, Da Terra - which translates to of the Earth - is an exploration of knowledge, originality and instinct, swayed by his Brazilian and Italian heritage and centred around the relationship between the soil, nature and people; our roots.

Da Terra’s cuisine

Da Terra translates the cultural roots of chef Rafael Cagali and amazes his guests with a bold original menu with tons of flavour and variety. Rafael’s blind tasting menu builds with harmonious crescendo whilst sharing in notions of nostalgia and culture, accomplished with grace and magnetic savour, underlined with heart and direction. Dishes are deeply personal and original, making use of native Brazilian ingredients, with playful bursts of colour and flavour that dance around the plate and palate. Each course is personally brought to the table, by the chefs who prepare them.

On the menu recently

Duck Caesar Sout Cup & Scallop Mushroom served as Taleggio Doughnut; Moqueca Aged Turbot, Manteiguinha Beans and Farofa - a Brazilian classic elevated by modern and elegant twists; Da Terra's Sourdough Bone Marrow, accompied by cultured Butter and Gonnelli 1585 Olive Oil; and a sweet-savoury dessert of Cachaça Baba, Pistachio IC, Kaluga Hybrid Caviar.

Wine selection

Wine pairings are available for both the lunch and regular tasting menus. The selections mirror the originality of the menu; a journey to different provinces around the world, all from specially selected wine makers with a story to tell. Non-alcoholic pairings are also available.

Contemporary dining in London’s East End

This contemporary restaurant is located inside a Victorian hotel and, in contrast to its grandeur, has quite a modern décor. It is situated in the East End, with close access to London’s city center. Da Terra’s stately exterior contrasts with the elegant modern interiors of the dining room, which seats 28 people, each night with a single service. The colour palette of the restaurant is cool throughout, whilst Rafael’s favourite artwork collection adorns the walls. Diners look onto the impressive open kitchen, set strikingly against the building’s original arched windows.
