Superb

I loved the minimalistic decor and overall feel of the restaurant. The food was excellent and service very attentive indeed. They will no doubt feature in the top 10 awards this year... I will be back.

The newly repositioned restaurant on the slopes on Constantiaberg is a treat for any gourmand. Every course ordered by my table of three was spectacular. Starters included warm oysters in a velouté reduction in the half shell (amazing), pork belly confit with additions, a soup of unidentifiable vegetables a thick creamy foam. Mains were a Chalmar sirloin perfectly cooked, kingklip... More

I ate here in March for Sunday lunch. It was my second visit to the new location and this time I was a solo diner. Things got off to an excellent start when my waiter remembered me from my last visit in November with friends. The sommelier helped me pick out a wine - one from a local Constantia vineyard... More

We were visiting from Australia and found the restaurant to be exquisite. It is in a beautiful setting although we missed the turn off so could do with some better signage. The food was all beautifully presented with fantastic flavours and fresh ingredients. Could not fault it. The service was very attentive without being intrusive. Overall fabulous and highly recommended!

I was a longstanding fan of the old venue on the Uitsig estate but had felt that the menu had stagnated somewhat while the restaurant awaited its fate after the aquisition of the vineyard by a private buyer. The new venue (but with the retention of most of the excellent staff) is a revelation, as is the menu. It is... More

Had lunch at La Colombe. Dramatic setting up in the hills, took quite some time to drive from the public road. Great food, beautifully presented. Knowledgable staff. Will definitely visit again.

I still remember the table they especially arranged for us to celebrate our honeymoon. Food was simply awesome, every dish was a delicacy.
