The food and service here was exceptional.The chef is very talented and each of the many dishes on the set menu contained so many contrasting but complimentary flavours and textures that you were left marvelling at...

A fabulous place! The moment you walk in you're greeted with a pleasant and genuine welcome. The food was to die for and faultless and the service second to none. Great wine choice and a very informative sommelier and all for a great value. This was the first visit there for dinner, and it was that good we'll be returning... More

As one of my fellow contributors wrote, I knew in advance that this is a fine restaurant, but the results really surprised me. We went for dinner back in September and chose the full 14 courses menu with wine pairing. Some of the dishes weren't exactly my type, but that is very personal opinion. Still, the majority of the meals... More

An amazing experience. A tantalising trip for your tastebuds. The flavours, the different textures, the presentation, the food are all outstanding. Pricey but worth every cent.

If you like fine dining, this is the best you'll find and here's why (from a couple who eat there twice every trip from the UK - and we've been to all the best!): 1. The service is exceptional and consistent no matter who serves you. It's so good you almost don't notice it 2. The food is complex, elegant,... More

I knew that this was a great restaurant when I booked but I had no idea how great. The first thing is the view. You look out over vegetable gardens, woodland and then the lights of Cape Town itself. Then there is the food! I can't list, or remember all of it but I did have the larger tasting menu... More

We were able to book in for both lunch (the shorter version, seven courses) and dinner (the full twelve with wines) at La Colombe on our last visit to Constantia, this was our first visit since La Colombe moved to Silvermist having visited the previous version several times. It was just the most enjoyable meal we've had. Absolutely delightful. I... More

Simply the best restaurant me and my GF been to Small remark on service: 1) They didn't exclude the deposite so I have to remind them (600 ZAR) 2) They included additional pairing that costed 500 ZAR which we didn't order. Total extra 1100 ZAR. Waiters in such restarants shouldn't be making such mistakes
