First time at the new la Colombe! And it is as good as ever! Location is stunning and will be even better when some of the trees are chopped down and vines planted. Waiting staff were great, relaxed and the meal options very flexible. The food itself was excellently put together and the 8 of us all agreed it was... More

Exceptional restaurant. The best meal, among many, that we experienced in South Africa. Loved the food, wine, service & overall experience. Highly recommended.

I've been quite a few times when it was part of the Uitsig wine estate. Service is always superb. The Steak is the most delicious steak and not a single highly rated Steak restaurant in London can match it. the combination of the quality of the steak and their home made sauce is stunning. When I am in Cape Town,... More

I waited six weeks to experience the Gourmand tasting menu, and I wasn't disappointed. It was my girlfriends birthday, and with her being a vegetarian finding good restaurants is hard. It was her best restaurant experience ever and probably mine too. Everything was perfect, from the friendly staff, to the knowledgeable and professional waiters (Andrew) to the exquisite food, to...

We visited La Colombe in its new venue at Silvermist Wine Estate. We were guests at La Colombe in March last year and it was sublime. We therefore decided to book a table for New Years Eve and it did not disappoint. What a fabulous evening. We went with friends and it was perfect. The ambiance of the new venue... More

We had a nice lazy lunch here on Saturday. The new location is stunning, great views, nicely decorated and tasteful decor, interior and furniture very modern and stylish. Starters, amuse bouche and oysters very tasty. It all started great. The rest of the lunch was almost perfect, but… there were a few things they easily can change that will make... More

We have been here twice before when it was located at Uitsig and the food is just as amazing as ever, however the location is nowhere near as good. We took friends who had not been before so had no comparison and they thought it was amazing. It has only moved a few months ago so there is still a... More

Loved the new venue for La Colombe. The food, service and atmosphere was fantastic. The attention to details was incredible. Can't wait to go back next time we are in Cape Town.

No terrace, just a narrow balcony with limited vista. This is definitely not the same feeling as the previous location. Good service, good meal. Average wine list compared to previous one at Uitsig. Can the owner please have a look at those uncomfortable terrace chairs and tables ? Those inside are way better, why not use the same on the... More
