It was no mistake to choose Le Colombe for a big birthday dinner. The food was fantastic and all my guests agreed to have just eaten one of their best dinners ever. The tasting menu (option for a vegietarian one) hit all the flavors and showed a variety of foods combined to an outstanding taste. If you visit Cape Town,... More

What a gem! We had the 9 course menu with wine pairing, and what an amazing experience it was!! Every course as delicious as the next, the combinations of flavors is out of this world. It makes it almost impossible to decide which was our favorite. I must mention the "Boeren kaas" dessert, I will have that every day if... More

Good food and excellent wine nicely matched. The service was prompt and professional. Great desserts too. Prices are rather on the expensive side. We highly recommend this spot.

We went here for my dad's birthday dinner and it was the best dinner I have ever had and I have been lucky enough to have tasted some amazing food in my life. I had the 4 course tasting menu and I enjoyed every bite. The flavors were so complex and well matched. The dishes were perfectly seasoned. And the... More

Really had a treat on our previous trip to Cape Town as my wife managed to book both here and at the Test Kitchen. I loved the overall experience at La Colombe: the presentation of each dish is so vastly different yet there is still a type of underlying thread that connects it all as one incredibly tasty culinary journey....

From the moment that we arrived we were treated to exceptional service. We opted for the 8 course with wine pairing option and were definitely not disappointed. The staff work together so cohesively with perfect timing between the wine pouring and the delivery of the next course. The sommelier/s were also very knowledgeable and friendly prepared to answer all questions... More

This is a lovely part of Capetown with superb mountain views! What a special place to have a truly memorable lunch. We really enjoyed the combinations of flavours from tuna to babette steak, scallops and lamb lion all dressed to surprise and delight.Just so reasonably priced for fine dining!

Some might find the drive there and back a mite long, but it is more than worth it. The moment one enters the Restaurant, you know you are in for a great treat. The Chef's Menu, with each dish suitably paired with a great wine is highly recommended. Each course is served in just the right quantity, so the whole... More

This is fine dining at its best. We travel a lot and visit many Michelin star restaurants and La Colombe ranks at the top of our list. It used to be situated in the Uitsig wine estate but has now re-located to the Silvermist wine estate at Constantia Nek but remains as good as ever as evidenced by the long... More
