Superb

The standards are high at La Colombe. The menu is inspired and inventive. The service is attentive but never intrusive. We will be back for sure!

We had a wonderful family lunch in this beautiful restaurant, it was cold and wet and the restaurant was warm and welcoming. The food was beautiful and delicious ... Our only compliant was that the hake and sea bass as a bit over cooked - but we had a great time overall.

Breathtaking cuisine and wine to match the setting of the place. Professional but friendly and knowledgeable staff added to a dining experience out of this world. This chef and his staff are focussed to provide the best possible! Our compliments again!

I'm not sure if this meal won't go down as one of the best meals I have ever had the privilege of eating! Yes, we always have exceptional food at La Colombe, but the Gourmand Lunch Menu on Sunday was quite extraordinary. Thank you to all the wonderful team for such an unforgettable experience. La Colombe is world class!

Changed to another venue, which is maybe for lunch super for views, but for inside diners a cold atmosphere. Service is super and run the extra mile, and the dishes are well presented and well tasted.

La Colombe has always been one of Cape Town's best restaurants and rated very highly internationally as well. It is no longer located in the Constantia valley but is now at Constantia Neck and part of Silver Mist Residence Estate. The entrance is roughly 300 metres from the traffic circle going down towards Hout Bay. We went for dinner and... More

Big statement but true. We were there at Christmas as a party of 5. The venue is stunning, the staff are beautiful and passionate and fun. Plate after plate of unique, quirky and complex food was relayed to us while we consumed stunning wines with some great advice and guidance. Steaks, crab, tuna (which my wife hates and loved) champagne,... More

It was an extremely cold and wet evening when we eventually arrived at La Colombe. Looking more like drown rats than dinner guests we were welcome with open arms and hurried to a table by the roaring fire.Our waiter hung our Mr Price rain coats out to dry as if they were Saville Row suits and poured us glass of...

This place has a big rep and is now located at SilverMist , Constantia Nek. For me , 'fusion' is too often an excuse to over charge and I am afraid, coupled with the pretentious feel around the evening, this didnt work. Great location , food is fine and if you are not paying rand then you may find the... More
