We've eaten at many Michelin starred places and were very impressed with La Colombe. Book a reservation in advance. We easily took Uber each direction (it was less than $15 each direction between Sea Point in Cape Town and La Colombe) I know from our first bite of sourdough bread with hand-churned butter and fresh garlic that we would not...

This was good! Very good! Constantia is a scenic area and we stopped here by chance on the to another restaurant. Our waitress was brilliant and she served us with a smile and lots of warmth. The food was divine and the entire experience worth coming back for more. Thank you for a truly delicious culinary experience.

This restaurant is about 25 minutes from downtown Cape town by taxi. It is located in a secure environment atop the winery grounds. Advance reservations are a must and required. Ideal tables are against the front window so please be persistent on request. Menu changes and is eclectic modern-Gourmand and reduced. Nice wine selection. Service was very good although the...

Don't want to repeat all the positive details of what the reviewers already wrote. Just want to confirm La Colombe is the best restaurant in cape town. If you truly enjoy good food in taste, presentation, innovation then must go. One of the best restaurant in the world on my list. So for my next return in Cape town I... More

I had the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairing for lunch today and was absolutely brown away. Food is excellent and wine pairings are spot on! Enjoyed the professional and friendly service as well. I haven't got the chance to try the Test Kitchen this time as it's closed for revamp so can't compare the two. (I did go... More

A sterling example of silver service. We went for the 13 course option with wine pairing. There was a lot of food, but each course was superbly different from the last and the wine complimented everything wonderfully. Our waiter was very knowledgable on both the foods and the wines. It was a three hour experience, but truly an experience not... More

We had lunch at La Colombe and thoroughly enjoyed this inventive, fine dining experience. We chose the Spring Lunch Menu for R395 per person, and every morsel was delicious, and quite different. 8 courses, but perfectly sized portions to be filling, but not over the top. The estate wines and sparkling wines were lovely (and, for once in a restaurant,... More

Being from NYC with a plethora of cutting edge fine dining restaurants, we found our dining choices in South Africa suprisingly incedible. All of the meals that we had on our visit were good, but our meal at La Colombe stood out among the rest. The previous night we ate at the Tasting Room in Franschoek and I mentioned to... More

From the moment you step into La Colombe you realise that magic surrounds you. The passion that our servers had for the food as they explained the course to follow and the wine that is paired with it, excites ones taste buds. With each bite there is an explosion of flavour that is indescribable. Each dish was prepared to perfection.... More

After all the hyped reviews and recommandations, it was time to face La Colomce at Silvermist. I will not bother you with a list of names of other restaurants were i had dinner, but trust me i have rated experience... The FOOD: i was not surprised by combinations of tastes, textures, color, food emotion. I did like their signature tuna... More
