La Colombe has a high reputation to live up to, but it excelled for us. We visited for lunch while staying in Cape Town in March and this meant that we could enjoy the splendid pastoral views from the deck. We were impressed with culinary innovation and informed service. In some ways we enjoyed La Colombe more than the "edgy"... More

We visited for lunch as a honeymoon treat. They left a box of fudge with a 'congratulations' ribbon on the table for us, which was a lovely touch. We opted for the 11 courses with wine flight. The meal was superb, from the red wine bread and lamb jus to the white chocolate dessert each course was a demonstration of... More

What an amazing experience. Starting with the setting and the views all the way through to the presentation of the food to the attentive service, La Colombe is a "sense sensation"! The textures and tastes of every course need to be savored so spend time and relax.

La Colombe is a fantastic, Michelin-starred restaurant. We first went there on our honeymoon, 5 years ago, when it was in its previous location, but the food has been consistently brilliant and using extremely high levels of skill and artistry. We went for the full 8 courses, with wine pairing, which is eye-wateringly expensive, but this was a special occasion.... More

The food here is very good. At times we thought they were striving too hard to be eclectic. Some of the combinations, which usually have many ingredients, sounded good, but then they would throw in a last ingredient to push it over the top and, to us, made the particular dish sound inedible. It may have been very good, but... More

We are fortunate to eat at many highly rated restaurants. However, at La Colombe, we experienced the best meal we have ever had. The stand out factor was the phenomenal depth of flavours each and every dish contained. We didn't want the experience to come to an end. We were blown away. The presentation of the food was artistic and... More

We had high expectations about this place and they were well met. Went here for dinner and it was already dark (I bet lunch is beautiful given the high level location of the estate). Two of us had the full tasting menu and one had the reduced menu. All with wine pairing. Each plate came with a beautiful presentation. We... More

A beautiful spot to eat some interesting food, some nice wine, and then sleep the afternoon through. (Ok, you may have to sleep somewhere else...). The location is special, nestled on a hill in a local winery. The staff are very professional and knowledgable about each course, which were all very interesting, made from local produce. Enjoy!

Don't miss a chance to eat here when in Cape Town. We went for lunch and were treated to a gorgeous view. We had the full menu and while it was a lot of food, we loved it all. And the wines! Surpassed expectations. Only small complaint was that we were at a table closest to the window and it... More
