We had a wonderful dining experience at La Colombe this afternoon! The service was wonderful; our waitress, Janine, was friendly and made great suggestions for a few food substitute requests we had. We got the perfect wine suggestions and enjoyed both of the Chardonnays we ordered. If the Paserene is in stock, order it. We drank their last bottle today... More

At a hill in Constantia lies this restaurant. It is supposed to be the second best in South Africa and the 76:th best in the world. So how was it ? It is situated at a hill with wonderful surroundings. Service is not good but absolutely amazing. Since Uber refused to work I had to drive there and park the... More

Since It moved to its present location we have been to it on our last two visits. Prior to that it had been very good indeed. Now it is even better. The cuisine has exquisite melanges of flavours and textures and the service and atmosphere are excellent.

We have visited every year since the move to Silvermist, so are obviously fans. Today was our second visit this year, we were so bowled over by an earlier visit we begged to be squeezed in. They obliged, but warned it would not be a prime table (as was the first, booked well in advance) it did not matter. The... More

We have been visiting La Colombe for several years now and watched the food mature from very good to near sublime in that time. This year, a la carte is gone, and tasting rules – 5 or 7 courses, depending on how you measure, with or without wines, at a not inconsiderable price tag. The food is superlative. Every course...

This was our second visit to La Colombe and neither of us were nearly as impressed this time around. The menu seemed to have changed little since our last visit 12 months ago. As before, the staff worked like a well oiled machine. The service was efficient and polite but lacked any real warmth or spontaneity. All in all, we... More

We spent two weeks in South Africa and this was the best meal we ate. The food is outstanding. The service was equally good. The perfect balance of informative and friendly. The reduced menu is more than enough.

For south Africa it's pretty heavy prices but it's worth it. Everything it top notch, no fault. You can only choose between the 5 or 9 course menu and if you want wine pairing or wine a la carte.

My wife booked this for me to celebrate my 50th during our tour of SA. We have dined in some of the best restaurants the U.K has to offer including La Gavroche, The Waterside inn and le manoir and I can say without doubt this is the best gastro experience we have ever had. We did the 13 course taster... More

This restaurant has a quiet, beautiful setting against the mountain looking out over a small valley, truly unexpected in Cape Town. The decor is fairly rustic and low key, with tables nicely spaced. We went for lunch. The food was excellent, small, exquisite tasting portions, with innovative and creative presentation. A very nice experience and very well done. One does... More
