La Colombe is an institution on it's own. Constantly surprising us with each dish, creativity, flair, taste and presentation. If going as a couple, I'd suggest getting the reduced menu with wine pairing and choose different dishes so that both can try both. Otherwise, the...More

Do not bother traveling nearly hour from Cape Town for this. Or even 10 minutes. Zero ambiance. White tables, beige walls , floors, decor. No color no art. Nothing special at all. Also no view. Even though you go up a mountain you can't see...More

Without a doubt one of the best meals we've ever had ! We had the smaller version of the degustation menu, which was more than enough. Not one of all the many dishes that came to our table could we find fault with. The service...More

We had dinner at La Colombe on New Years Eve (2016/2017). We had heard so much positive things about this restaurant, so we had very high expectations. The food was excellent, some dishes were according to the waiter old favorites and some were new inventions....More

We had a wonderful lunch (Winter Special) and it was excellent. Although having visited before each dish was a "new" surprise expertly presented. Definitely must be on your "to do list"

Hi there, I have booked this restaurant however is there an al la carte menu in the evenings or is it just the taster menu? Ideally I just wanted to come for steak. Many thanks for your help.

Hi there. We currently offer a choice between a full tasting menu or a reduced tasting menu. Please refer to our website for the options and pricing. Thank you!
Do you have to have the entire set lunch, or can you choose just a starter and a main?

I am not sure, as we went for dinner and we're only offered the full 13 courses or a smaller 7 course. It is more of a tasting experience of small bits than, say sitting down to a steak or a pasta dish.
