This was our second visit to La Colombe and neither of us were nearly as impressed this time around. The menu seemed to have changed little since our last visit 12 months ago. As before, the staff worked like a well oiled machine. The service was efficient and polite but lacked any real warmth or spontaneity. All in all, we... More

We spent two weeks in South Africa and this was the best meal we ate. The food is outstanding. The service was equally good. The perfect balance of informative and friendly. The reduced menu is more than enough.

For south Africa it's pretty heavy prices but it's worth it. Everything it top notch, no fault. You can only choose between the 5 or 9 course menu and if you want wine pairing or wine a la carte.

We have dined in some of the best restaurants the U.K has to offer including La Gavroche, The Waterside inn and le manoir and I can say without doubt this is the best gastro experience we have ever had. We did the 13 course taster... More

This restaurant has a quiet, beautiful setting against the mountain looking out over a small valley, truly unexpected in Cape Town. The decor is fairly rustic and low key, with tables nicely spaced. We went for lunch. The food was excellent, small, exquisite tasting portions, with innovative and creative presentation. A very nice experience and very well done. One does... More

Truly the best meal we ever had in South Africa and the whole world. We have eaten at La Colombe many times. So fortunate. Just as I think Chef Scot Kirton cannot surprise me with something more delicious....he does. Service, ambience, surroundings and stellar performance from kitchen made this La Colombe visit unbelievable. Thank you all. Such excellent value for... More

My fifth visit to La Colombe in its various locations. Now,not so easy to find but still a jewel.Constantia is awash with great restaurants but the yardstick by which they are all judged is Colombe providing remarkable quality at a sensible price.You can have a 5 or an 8 course tasting menu,with or without complimentary wines. For me the 5... More
