Had a great evening at La Colombe. The staff is very professional and evidently proud of their association with the eatery. This a world class experience and very entertaining. The food and presentation speaks of quality and the flavours were amazing. The restaurant catered for...our table raging from meat lovers, vegeterian and vegan. Well done La Colombe and thank you for a great evening.More

Shall we call it an unique experience, a theatre of amazing food presented in a way an art gallery present their artworks. Every course tantalize the tastebuds.From entering the restaurant until stepping out we were overwhelmed by the excellent personal but unobtrusive service. This will...go down as the best restaurant experience we had so far!More

Dining with the most professional staff at hand is not easy to experience in most SA restaurants. The staff hear allow a dinning experience with of course word class gastronomical tastes. The experience starts from the time you drive into this property at the security...chek point until the time you leave. Book well in advance you won't be disappointed.More

I have never experienced fine dining before. Our waiter, the chefs and the managers were wonderful and made my son's day so special. The way the food is presented makes eating and art. The flavours were incredible. If you are heading to Cape Town, after...lockdown, don't miss this great dining experienceMore

La Colombe is exceptional! The setting within the Silvermist Wine Estate is beautiful. The dining area overlooks the mountains and feels very relaxed. The service was very good. Attentive and professional service added to the relaxed atmosphere. The waitrons were never 'too in your face'...but always readily available when required. The food was exceptional. Each course is presented beautifully and many cases theatrically which already pleases the senses. The flavours and textures delight the palate with each bite. We could not decide which course was our favourite as each was very good and as a collective meal the chef menu blends so well. La Colombe is highly rated and well worth a visit that will show you why it is so good. Definitely returning for more in the future.More

La Colombe has always been on our radar, and our visit has been long overdue, so it was a perfect opportunity to visit this special place to 1) celebrate my husband's birthday and 2) it being our very first outing since lockdown! The service, food,...and atmosphere was nothing short of amazing. We opted for the full chef's menu (11 courses) with wine pairings (because why not?) and we were absolutely blown away by both presentation and taste! The palette cleansers upon arrival was no exception (I won't spoil the surprise here). Let's start with the service: Super attentive, knowledgeable staff - yet approachable, friendly, and make you feel extremely relaxed and well taken care of. Then the amazing food: No words really, just simply SUPERB! Each mouthful is an explosion of flavours and the way it's presented is outstanding! Won't give too much away, you have to try it for yourself! Thank you to the team at La Colombe for making the day super special! We will definitely be back for more!More

Theatre, sensory joy and exquisite tastes in a beautiful setting. We had the Winter Chefs Lunch. Every course (there were 10) was as good as the others, which was outstanding. The centre piece gardens were a treat. I loved the "canned tuna" experience and the...Malay curry in a granadilla skin. The acorn chocolates were also so amazing.More

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.
