Interesting set menu on offer, tiny tasting portions but packed with flavor. Not cheap but a worth while experience . If you only take the 7 course menu make sure you eat a sandwich before you go.

It as been a couple of years since we visited La Colombe. The venue has changed, and the a La Carte menu has become a tasting menu. In the interim, we have had a couple of excellent experiences, and plenty of reasonable ones. But there are not many times when we have had sublime experiences, so it was especially satisfying...

This was the finest meal we experienced during a very long journey to South Africa. The restaurant is stunning and the staff very professional , charming and helpful. The meal was delicious and very sophisticated and artistic. The views from the restaurant were also stunning. A marvelous experience. thank you.

La Colombe ,as a restaurant, was world class in every respect. The service was more knowledgeable and professional than anywhere else we have experienced in the Western Cape, the presentation and the cooking had the subtlety necessary to support the Tasting Menu concept and The option of a slightly shorter option - 6 courses instead of 9- was very welcome....

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...
