One word : breath-taking! Food was excellent. Service perfect and very professional. Venue magical. Wine divine. Order coffee even if like me you don't drink coffee just for the homemade chocolate truffles.

After making a reservation we arrived at the restaurant. With our jackets on, we were greated by an enthouasistic gentleman who asked us what we would like to drink. No rush, I am here to enjoy my evening! A bit too fast to my opinion. An enthousiastic lady took over the service. The menu was listed on a school board.... More

La Colombe has been consistently the best restaurant in the last 10+ years that I've had the pleasure of dining there. Faultless execution on the food, service and ambience. Can't wait for them to open again in October.

Grade A: Had the tasting menu along with the wine pairing. The servers were impeccable, and generous on the wine (could not finish any of the glasses with any of the dishes!). The wine estate is beautiful and we came here after visiting the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in the early afternoon. Tartare, sweetbreads and springbok all come to find... More

Had a lovely dinner with our 2 daughters. Our waitress really knew her stuff and was a expert on the food and preparation.

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.
