“Wonderful evening”

Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate
Ranked #14 of 20 things to do in Constantia
Attraction details
Reviewed April 28, 2013

we had a wonderful evening at the La Colombe. It was not just the great food, but the lovely staff there. Our waitress was professional, funny, made lovely explanations of the food and took care of special needs! Of course the prices are rather high, but in Europe you would not get something similar for this price!

We took the wine tour, which was very informative and took you through the processing plant and into the cellar. The tour ended with tasting, 2 whites a rose, 2 reds and port. You could ask the guide any question about wine or its processing as she was very very knowledgeable.

The guide taught you how to review a wine, how to check the wine for smell, color and taste.

After the tour we had lunch which overlooked the vineyard. There was a great selection of food and all 5 of us had something different of which everything tasted excellent.

I would recommend on a nice sunny day you allow a good 4 or 5 hours to take the tour, have some lunch and perhaps continue with some additional wine tasting.
There is also a little museum to walk round but we did not have time.

Our opinion is that this restaurant is even better than the famous restaurant next door! The food wine and view was exceptional!

Excellent wine, but unfortunately staff had too little time to explain the wines. Widhes to hear a bit more about the wines and the making

Beautiful fine food with exceptional service at La Colombe. More casual food at the River Cafe but still excellent.
