This lunch is the best we have had in South Africa. The food was perfectly prepared. The tuna tataki, the hake and the beef filet were all fantastic. We really recommend this bistro for lunch.

The setting is really nice. Starter - Caprese with with twist - very nice and tasty. Sea bass & veg tart were superb. Freshly prepared. House red wine as suggested by the waiter were really good. But be prepared to wait....that is the only issue...More

Warm welcome, very professional waiters, with great humour and understanding our needs. Small but delicious menu, all dishes well presented & delicious. About the quality of wines we do not need to talk, world class. You need to start with their Rose, absolutely wonderful.

Great setting in the vineyards of Constantia. Very attractive veranda among old, matured trees. Limited menu but food of average quality. Wine on the expensive side. Service generally very good. Worth visiting for the bucolic ambience alone.

I can't believe I hadn't heard about this before but having been alerted during a visit to La Colombe I booked lunch (dinner isn't available). The choice is small, not a bad thing as long as the choice is wide enough which it is. The...More
