This was one of my best dining experiences in Cape Town. The food was out of this world, and the presentation just amazing!!! Service excellent and the setting of the restaurant gorgeous. You have to visit this place when in Cape Town!

Aside from a few things - first we had just a few days ago been to Rust en Vrede which was truly excellent. Secondly some people may find La Colombe menu a bit restricted in that there is only the tasting menu to chose from. Now to the excellent part - the quality of the tasting menu was exquisite and...

We came here on the recommendation of a friend who used to share a house with Scott when he was in the UK. We were not disappointed. The approach through the estate is eye opening - like Beverley Hills but with taste!! Location is therefore amazing. The 4 of us went for 5 courses which was perfect for us at... More

As you approach the La Colombe up the dark, steep and winding drive you know you are heading for somewhere a little special, and we weren't disappointed. We selected the tasting reduced menu of 7 courses which each course was presented, explained and delivered in a performance which simply added to the food and ambiance. The staff where excellent my... More

Was pleased to secure a reservation for a business lunch. This being my second visit, I was no less amazed by the presentation and flavours. Service utmost professional and good selection of wines. Unfortunately, they need to learn how to make a simple Americano or find a different brand/blend. All in all a magnificent lunch treat (we had the 4... More

Creative and delicious - just beware, a full 14 dishes will last 3.5 hours. Recommend to go for dinner around sunset to appreciate the views. Booking required with deposit.

It is amazing. We often search out Michelin star restaurants and this was hands down the best place I have ever been to. Fantastic local wine, good menu options and fantastic views. Great service too. You will never regret this.

I think all the superlatives written about this place have been used. Suffice to say it was a very enjoyable memorable gourmet joy to be lucky enough to dine here. It is not number 20 on Trip Advisers worlds best restaurant for nothing. Our party opted for the full tasting menu and it was not only innovative and creative, offering... More

We had the full tasting menu but chose our own wines. Each course was superb and memorable. Our waiter helped us to choose our wines by providing us with a small selection of whites and reds to taste. We were also given a taste of each of the dessert wines from the wine pairing menu. When we checked the bill... More
