Had the 6 course with wine tasting menu.The food was very tasty and unique in some cases . The restaurant had no charm. Very blah decor. Not a fan of the fogs, and sticks on logs etc desserts. Waitstaff seemed too aloof !

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.
