We had high expectations about this place and they were well met. Went here for dinner and it was already dark (I bet lunch is beautiful given the high level location of the estate). Two of us had the full tasting menu and one had the reduced menu. All with wine pairing. Each plate came with a beautiful presentation. We... More

A beautiful spot to eat some interesting food, some nice wine, and then sleep the afternoon through. (Ok, you may have to sleep somewhere else...). The location is special, nestled on a hill in a local winery. The staff are very professional and knowledgable about each course, which were all very interesting, made from local produce. Enjoy!

Don't miss a chance to eat here when in Cape Town. We went for lunch and were treated to a gorgeous view. We had the full menu and while it was a lot of food, we loved it all. And the wines! Surpassed expectations. Only small complaint was that we were at a table closest to the window and it... More

My most recent visit to La Colombe was every bit as exceptional as the last. This is definitely one of my most favourite restaurants in Cape Town. We had lunch on Easter Sunday - each course was expertly prepared and artistically plated. The flavours did not disappoint. As usual the service was excellent.

We were driving back to Cape Town and saw the restaurant sign. We were on their waiting list for the evening. We arrived just before 1200 and they had a table for us. This is one of the best restaurant and one of the most creative. We went on the reduced fixed menu, which includes 10 dishes, all of the... More

La Colombe remains one of the best restaurants I've ever had the pleasure to experience. The standard is always high, good ingredients cooked well, detailed presentation, always something to look forward to.

We had La Colombe highly recommended to us and the experience did not let the recommendation down. You effectively have two choices for food - an 8 course tasting menu (you effectively have every option) or a 5 course tasting menu (with choices) and each option comes either with or without the wine pairings. We chose the 5 course menu... More

It may seem harsh to give 9/10 but it isn’t as good as the Test Kitchen. The food was excellent, the waitress very knowledgeable and a relaxed very pleasant atmosphere. My main comment would be that the kitchen is upstairs and not accessible to guests, thus there is no interaction with the chefs. It would have been good if chef... More

High Enjoyed all courses - the scallops and pork belly was fabulous. Doing the Taste test at the end was fun and surprising (and competitive :)) Definitely divine food, nothing short of brilliant. Food theater at it's best. Low But just a little something lacking and cold about the experience.
