“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Aa drive out of town but so very worth it. The not so serious service accompanied by excellent food and a great sommelier make this a beautiful night out.

“Chalmar Beef is the winner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

About 3 weeks ago I specifically wanted to dine at La Colombe for one last time before they relocated. I had the Chalmar Beef and returned a week later with a different group of friends just to have it again! Absolute best! Also, the pear dessert was a definite winner too! Sad to see La Colombe leaving the Uitsig farm, but excited for what the future holds!

“Not that great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

I had a business lunch at what I expected to be a fine restaurant. The food was good not great and the service was also just OK. My tuna starter was served with a piece of plastic wrap in it and in sympathy the staff thought it appropriate not to bill me for it.

Cape Town is load with great restaurants and a bunch or really good ones too, but sadly this is not one of them.
