Consistently spectacular

One of the best restaurants in Cape Town that consistently never disappoints. It is truly experiential dining - from the amuse bouche through the meal to the wonderful truffles at the end. Pricey but worth it!

Sensational! Brilliant! Formidable! Adjectives I don't lightly employ when I write on TA. But the settings (vineyards in a forest), the service (professional from the moment you arrive at the reception), the wine (Silvermist's own sauvignon blanc single block!!!), the food (you don't call it food anymore - it is manna from heaven), and the atmosphere (warm and cozy) -all...

One of the finest SA restaurants, La COlombe keeps on it's finest. I've visited this restaurant many time through the different chefs that have been there but it was my first time under chef Scot and I must say he kept up the game here. All set menu was amazing and overdelivering in all senses. The tuna in the can... More

This restaurant has incredible food. Flavours are perfectly paired to make this an experience of note. The wine list is good. What stood out for me was the incredible Guava parfait paired with Delheim Edelspatz. What an incredible combination. The interior of this restaurant is beautiful. I note that previous comments said that it is off the beaten track and... More

We went to La Colombe for my birthday, it could not have been a more perfect evening dining out... From the welcome at the gate, at the reception and the service during the dinner until the goodbye from the guard at the parking area, very friendly service. The food is simply superb: perfectly combined, prepared and presented, the wine list... More

The food and wine were great! It is located pretty far off the beaten track, so take that into consideration when you consider eating here. We stayed in Camps Bay and it was a good 25-30 drive to and from. Getting a cab home was about 2x the price of going, but I think that was because we were so... More

Fabulous food fabulous service and the set menu price is very reasonable indeed. The venue is a bit dicey with a bad road and just too out of the way. There must be better alternatives for such a top class restaurant?

Having eating here a number of times over the years and recently once again it still remains the best on offer in Cape Town. La Colombe easily compares with Michelin star rated restaurants abroad and is priced exceptionally reasonable in comparison. I will continue to return time and time again.

Hidden, and I mean hidden, in the Constantine Wine Region outside Cape Town is this quaint, friendly, special place. We walked in not knowing what to expect, just that the concierge at our hotel (Cape Grace) had recommended it, and 3 hours later with our stomachs full, a smile on our faces and a very very reasonable bill, we walked...
