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

Wonderful lunch having the reduced tasting menu. I am not a huge fan of tasting menus but the journey through the courses was a real joy - incredibly well balanced flavours that really left you utterly satisfied with just enough room for the petit fours and an espresso. Wonderful!

We were last here just under a year ago for dinner, and this time we went for lunch to experience the restaurant during the daytime. Sat in a beautiful setting with a lovely outlook, La Colombe has the edge on The Greenhouse when it comes to ambience and atmosphere. The food here is well thought out, and the combinations intriguing... More

Our travel agent recommended we tried this restaurant and it exceeded all expectations. It is difficult to say anything else positive that hasn't already been said. Suffice to say If you are on holiday in Cape Town and you want to take home memories of a superb meal book La Colombe

Its a great pity you cannot have a "normal" meal at La Colombe these days (ie starter, main course and pudding) but that is the same in all the top places locally now. It does appear to mean less locals unfortunately. At least there is a choice and of my 4 visits over the last 4 weekends there has been... More
