This was the first time I came to the new La Calombe at Silvermist Estate. The dining room lacked ambiance and although I am sure the views are breathtaking during the day, at night one can see nothing but blackness. We were a group of three and I emailed ahead to warn about my ghastly food allergies (gluten, dairy and... More

The new venue is beautiful, the service is impeccable and the food even more sublime than before, if that is even possible. Innovative new combinations and surprising 'pops' of taste will satisfy the most discerning tastes. We look forward to our next visit.

Being a local Joe Average with champagne tastes and beer income I was pleasantly surprised when this fine dining restaurant came out with a 3 course winter special menue at under R300. Starters main course and dessert each has a choice. Having invited my Mom we tried the different options and each was superb. The attention to detail in terms... More

My husband and I were here for his birthday dinner. We both decided to go for the 4 course meal, mine was a vegetarian option. The creativity of the plating was impressive, though I feel my first 3 courses of meals had a lot of repetition, so by the time I received my third course I was less impressed with... More

Security problems plus a bad inadequate road plus it is pretty way off the usual quality wine farms - all a bit disappointing. They need to move away back to a decent southern suburbs wine farm as I see it.

Dear John, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read about your concerns. We have received fantastic feedback about our new location with the vast majority of our regular guests approving of our new home.

I took my husband to La Colombe for lunch for his birthday. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The best part was the delicious food and the quality of it. It tasted great and the presentation was lovely. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves great food.

My husband and I dined at La Colombe on a Sunday evening in May. After stating it was our anniversary on our reservation, we arrived to find yellow rose petals and a small bag of truffles on the table. And it just got better from there. Luci was our server and she was as wonderful as the food. We selected... More

Up in the mountain - you need good advice how to find it if you go there the first time. It does´t matter which table you are seated as there is basically no view, but you are spoilt by very creative dishes/ meals. And the choice of wines is - as always - perfect. Nevertheless, it is one of the... More
