If you are looking for a dinner that is beautifully presented and tastes great this is the place to go. In fact this is the place where you we will want to take pictures of each course. The portions are tiny but you will not go away hungry. There is a minimum of four courses. The restaurant is... read more

We had previously visited La Colombe when it was situated on another wine farm so were interested to see if it would deliver in it's new setting. After a drive up a very steep hill with stunning views over the Constantia Valley we reached the restuarant. The service was very good and unobtrusive. The food was delicious and each of... More

Visited in Jan 2015 during my honeymoon. Lovely patio seating! Excellent service and friendly staff! Food was very very good. I normally do not eat oysters, but at La Colombe they were delicious! The place is tucked away in a compound, not very easy to find. Make sure you know how to get there, or have someone who knows how... More

We visited on Thursday 4th February 2016 The website describes the restaurant as an Internationally recognised fine dining venue. Fine dining should be undertaken in a leisurely manner, in an organised, efficient, calm and tranquil environment, giving patrons an environment to fully savour the gastronomic delights on offer. Unfortunately this was not our experience. On arrival we were whisked off... More

Dear Selwyn, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable feedback from your recent experience. I can assure you that this is absolutely not the standard of La Colombe and the feedback and reviews from our other diners is testimony to this. However we clearly have not met, nor exceeded your expectations, and we kindly request that... More

I'd booked lunch at La Colombe to follow a zip lining adventure (also situated on Silvermist farm). Unfortunately the weather didn't play along, and, after taxiing to Constantia we opted not to do the zipline in the rain, which left us with no transport and at a loss for something to do until our lunch. The sky cleared slightly so... More

Sophisticated food, beautifully presented & tasty. Excellent service and attractive setting. We had the tasting lunch menu -our bill with wines and tip came close to R3000 for two -pricey but worth every cent !

We had lunch at the restaurant. It was easy to find. Very busy, you definitely need reservation well in advance. Service and food is excellent! Beautiful plating, even serving complimentary treats between meals! Yummy! And with all that it is a good price.

What a location and what a place... I booked this restaurant a few months ago knowing it was a top eaterie. We were not disappointed. A stunning restaurant with a "to die for" view. The staff especially the sommelier were very professional and knew their stuff. Exquisitely prepared and served food and excellent wine pairings. How we wish the UK... More

We visited La Colombe for dinner and had the best meal ever - even better than when we dined there before and also better than the times when we dined at La Colombe at their old location. There is usually one course that stands out but they were all equally superb - in taste, in texture and in appearance. We... More
