My wife and I were there for our anniversary. This was an awesome experience. That staff are professional. The food is great. Definitely worth every penny.

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

First time at the 'new' restaurant and had lovely food, served on a relaxed and friendly manner, worth a visit anytime.

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 was friendly and efficient and enough time was given between dishes to enable you to... 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. After finishing our meal, our joint appraisal was that we both were a bit disappointed....

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"

Our first time at La Colombe which is beautifully located with outstanding views of the valley below. The drive up to the restaurant from the main road is a bit of a challenge, I'm pleased I wasn't in the driving seat ! We opted for the full tasting menu for lunch, each of the many courses skilfully paired with an... More

As this was my first time at their new premises, I was hoping that the high standards had followed from their old establishment - and I was not disappointed. A very windy road (thank goodness I was not driving), takes you to a very elegant restaurant. The seven of us all opted for the Gourmand Dinner Menu with wine pairing.... More

This restaurant is by far THE BEST IN SOUTH AFRICA! We are both chefs and make a point at eating at a wide variety of quality restaurants. In fact, we have eaten at all of the TOP restaurants in the Cape with exception of The Test Kitchen. We have also eaten at a few Michelin restaurants abroad. La Colombe is... More
