After all the hype we were hoping to not be disappointed and we certainly were not. The dining rooms were a lot more casual that I thought they would be and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable and we enjoyed being close to the hustle and bustle of the kitchen. All of our... More

Having read all of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, we were looking forward to dining at La Colombe and were not disappointed. Even though we were a bit early for our reservation, we were promptly greeted and seated. Our cocktail order was taken immediately and we were soon sipping champagne and taking in the décor. The homemade breads and... More

Been back to La Colombe almost a dozen times by now, and am always impressed by the fantastic and creative food, backed up by attentive and friendly service. Wine pairings complimented each dish, and the petit fours were practically a meal on their own! On the expensive side, but well worth it.

Last week I took my sister, brother in law and friend to La Colombe as a thank you for putting up with me whilst I visited them. We had the degustation menu with wine. Can I say as an Australian with the current exchange rate WHOOPIE! This cost me what it would cost for Husband and I to have at... More

Friends joined us for our second visit over the past months this time to celebrate Mother's Day. We couldn't have been more spoilt. Out waitress Jeanette, deserves a special mention for her friendly & humorous attentive service. If your looking for fabulous food in the Constantia wine lands this has to be the place. Especially as Constantia Uitsug is unfortunately... More

The wine pairing with the tasting menu is very good. The chefs compliment the food with different wines. The overall experience is very good. The only downside is that too many ingredients.

I travel to Cape Town every year and always seem to have the pleasure of dining here.it is not a restaurant where you would pop in and enjoy a casual meal, (firstly you need to make a reservation unless you have friends in influential places! Saying this, we managed to get a table, after hearing they were fully booked on... More

Had a good night, but a bit expensive for the potion sizes, not great value for money. A lot of good cheaper alternatives out there for the average south African.
