This is a beautiful location - looking down the vineyards to the valley below. We had the shortened menu, but it was easily enough. The tastes and textures of the food are all unique, but meld together beautifully. A very special place..book early..

It's still the best restaurant in Africa if not the world, What a wonderful experience. Fabulous friendly staff. The fun begins when you walk through the door! Start tasting before you sit down. A must for your bucket list.

La Colombe is always fabulous for us. You simply cannot beat Scot Kirton. Even Waterkloof pales in comparison and they are number 1.

I took my husband here as a special birthday treat. He's vegetarian and not used to having a menu specially prepared for him. The drama starts once you enter the gates of the restaurant, climbing up to a secluded area with spectacular views. The staff...More

Hello. Cape Town CBD is approximately a 25 minute drive to La Colombe. We recommend that you use the UBER transport service. We look forward to seeing you in January.
