Visited here on our second day in Cape Town and it was truly the best meal we have ever had. We had the reduced tasting menu and evry course was not only beautifully presented but, more importantly, super delicious! This is what makes it stand out from the crowd, the food is innovative in all the right ways and full... More

La Colombe clearly aims to be one of the best restaurants in the world. it succeeds. The food is imaginative, witty and, most important, absurdly delicious. The service is sublime. My server, Deaine (sorry for getting the spelling incorrect) was like a sommelier. I learned a great deal from him about South African wines. You feel as if the entire... More

Did the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Five people with slightly complicated dietary requirements. Worked out perfectly. Service was amazing. Food flavours were unbelievably nice.

Lovely restaurant in lush surroundings although interior is a bit stark and not very intimate. The tasting menu was very very good and comparable to a 3 Michelin Star in UK. Innovative contemporary cooking by a fine chef and served by a very efficient waitress. You need to book well in advance i.e. months but well worth it. Ask for... More

This is probably one of the priciest places to eat in Cape Town but also one of the nicest and well worth the money. With very good wine and the large tasting menu we paid around usd 135 per person. They were very accomodating for people with allergies and made some excellent alternatives without delay. Really good service level as... More

Truly a memorable lunch with top service, amazing dishes (especially the scallop and tuna) and great wine pairing. Just perfect. Love the Taste Test.

No wonder you need to book 3 or 4 months in advance - this restaurant is amazing. This was our second visit and this year we had the tasting menu which offered every flavour imaginable in one or other of the courses. The food is very rich but the portions are small enough that one can enjoy all the courses... More

Took some foodie friends here and we had bigged La Colombe up given our last couple of meals here. They didn't let us down, excellent wine pairings and food which is simply sensational. This should be an absolute must visit restaurant for anyone in the area on holiday. Truly exceptional. It's at the high end for South African prices, as... More

Third time at La Colombe - and the last time for sure. An overall disappointing and pretentious experience, and an overpriced one as well. Where to start... the welcome and service in general was professional, but somewhat distanced and not as attentive and friendly as one would expect. The venue isn't half as good as it was in Constantia Uitsig;... More
