I took time before reviewing this restaurant because i had to think hard about this review but also to stop myself from comparing it to the Test Kitchen. Let me start by saying, I had a great time. We were a group of five guys, celebrating a friend's birthday, and so we chose this restaurant. i had high expectations because... More

I had a recommendation from a foodie friend to try this restaurant as a "must do" for my first visit to Cape Town. It was very difficult to get a reservation a few days beforehand. We lucked in by constantly checking availability online 👍 The meal is a set degustation with options of a full menu (about a dozen or... More

This restaurant deserves it's high rating in South Africa and is a must for anyone who loves great food. Situated high on the mountain side with a great view over the valley, booking is essential. The service is professional and the menu is a choice between a 5- or a 9-course tasting menu. Wine pairing is available and the wines... More

Had the pleasure of enjoying the winter lunch special at this extraordinary establishment yesterday. The attentive service from the highly professional staff, the delicious food and the excellent wine choice all combined to make the dining experience something special. What a treat to have Scot Kirton himself serve the first course! Thank you for an absolutely wonderful afternoon!

The tasting lunch menu that we had was sublime and a really great experience. Every teeny weeny single bite is a flavour and eating experience. The attention to detail, the range of foods to taste, the presentation, the staff - all absolutely awesome. Our waitress Joy, was knowledgable, friendly, discreet and wonderful.

My finance and I treated ourselves to La Columbe's 14 course winter lunch menu together with the fine wine pairing. To say the cuisine was perfect would be an understatement. Every course literally melted in your mouth and the portions were perfect to sustain 14 courses. We never had to summon a waiter as they were so attentive, considerate and... More

A friend told me about this restaurant making the top 100 in the world this year, and since I was coming home on holiday, I was super keen to try it out. My family and I visited last Sunday and each of us left thoroughly impressed and eager to return soon. There isn't a single course that I can't rave... More
