Had a lovely dinner with our 2 daughters. Our waitress really knew her stuff and was a expert on the food and preparation. The service was outstanding as was the food - the oysters on the half shell were simply sublime! Every morsel we had was delicious and properly prepared and served. One of the most memorable meals we have... More

After reading all these reviews I decided on Tuesday to drive there to have lunch. To my amazement it is closed and aparantly will re-open in Hout Bay! This is terrible. On their website it still says Constantia Wine Estate! How will I know when it re-opens again?

This is more than just a restaurant. This is a superb establishment where you can spend an entire evening out with friends whilst enjoying the very best food, service and ambience Cape Town has to offer. I must make special mention of the manager Johann who went out of his way to make us feel welcome even though we arrived... More

Aa drive out of town but so very worth it. The not so serious service accompanied by excellent food and a great sommelier make this a beautiful night out.

About 3 weeks ago I specifically wanted to dine at La Colombe for one last time before they relocated. I had the Chalmar Beef and returned a week later with a different group of friends just to have it again! Absolute best! Also, the pear dessert was a definite winner too! Sad to see La Colombe leaving the Uitsig farm,... More

I had a business lunch at what I expected to be a fine restaurant. The food was good not great and the service was also just OK. My tuna starter was served with a piece of plastic wrap in it and in sympathy the staff thought it appropriate not to bill me for it. Cape Town is load with great... More

Excellent food, fantastic service and for the Brits brilliant value for money! We did not make a reservation and just happened to be in the area around lunch time and thought we would give it a go - it was quiet so we were lucky! I have to say the best meal in Cape Town and we had some pretty... More
