Dining at La Colombe on Valentine’s Day was unforgettable. It is more an experience than just having dinner. Original in approach and dishes, combined with amazing flavors, excellent wine pairings and perfect staff/service. Not cheap but very much worth it. Go!

Hello. Cape Town CBD is approximately a 25 minute drive to La Colombe. We recommend that you use the UBER transport service. We look forward to seeing you in January.
