We heard that La Colombe in Capetown had been rated in the top 10 in the world, and when we discovered that they had opened La Petite Colombe in Franschhoek we just had to go. We were spending Christmas and New Year with our family in Langebaan, and managed to book a table for lunch just before Christmas. We opted for the 5 course fixed menu, but in view of the long drive back to Langebaan decided not to have the wine pairing. All the staff were friendly and efficient, and service was prompt without being rushed. The presentation of each course is like a work of art. There are two choices for each course, and for us the highlights were the oyster, the langoustine, and the lamb. A lovely touch was the lamb rib (which is part of the lamb course) served from a little barbeque on the table. All the flavours exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return when we are next in the area.
