If perfection exists, this is the restaurant that has it all: the best fine dining in South Africa, excellent services, lovely views, accommodating vegetarians, ... plenty of little surprises! Not to be missed, we will visit again!

We are from the UK and dined at La Colombe with our 2 guests in December 2016 and it was a truely gastronomic experience. We were blown away by the level of food artistry, taste and attention to detail - everything was of a European standard! The staff were exceptional in their knowledge of the wines and the sourcing of... More

We arrived at La Colombe full of expectation based on its reputation. Sadly it feel short in almost every respect and does not deserve its accolades. From the first moment the management of the restaurant was wrong with the lighting above our table far too bright. Ok minor but it set the tone and was an example of what should... More

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 full menu might be too filling. Favourite dish was the Springbok carppacio as well as... More

We were privileged to enjoy the benefit of their winter luncheon special which is available sadly until 8th June. Then the restaurant closes for renovation. What an experience of creative cuisine, from the menu selection, preparation and presentation accompanied by an excellent wine list. Warm friendly and efficient serving team. Deserves its rating.

When we arrived we were welcomed in a friendly way. We felt comfortable and were not intimidated by the staff and set up. We started actually on a blank canvas... the tables are not fully set. Just a white table cloth with two glasses and a modest candle. We were introduced to the menu options. No fuzz. Large or medium... 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 city lights. But wait. It gets worse. Food is very overrated. Admittedly I'm not a... More
