A true delight. The team at La Colombe truly have mastered the art of gastronomy. They are artists in their own right.

Before we arrived in SA we were told pretty much by every man and his dog, that we would eat better than we ever had. Whilst we had some good food, we hit the jackpot at La Colombe. We are gourmand.

La Colombe was one of those rare beasts. We left truly satisfied and frankly, quite glum knowing that it would be some time before we return, being some 9000 miles away.

Thankyou for that great experience.

We have had a beautiful dining experience in La Colombe.
We had the Gourmand Menu with wine pairing which was amazing.
I want to thank especially Marion, our waitress, who was charming and had a very good knowledge about the products and wines she was serving us (she will probably remember us as the family with the 2 girls who had a lot of fun !!). you made our visit to "La Colombe" complete.
If we ever get the luck to come back to South Africa, we will surely make sure to return to La Colombe.
As a fact, we also went to "la petite Colombe" in Franschoeck, a week later and enjoyed it as much as its big sister!!!
Thanks to the Team and owner of these 2 exceptional restaurants

Most incredible 10 course tasting dinner ... every detail was closely managed. The tuna was a favorite and the quail course. Every single course was delicious and the service was spectacular. Ambience and atmosphere was perfect. Thank you best restaurant ever!

This was by far the best food and service I have ever received. The portions are small but just perfect and extremely tasty. Would go back anytime.

10 course tasting menus can be self-indulgent and OTT but this was a culinary experience to match the magnificent vineyard setting. From springbok to tuna, from quail to kingklip, the variety and combinations keep coming with surprising treats for the taste buds but never a sense of the ostentatious or contrary. This is proper food, not showtime. You pay for it (our bill with a couple of bottles of good wine was £125 a head) but from the art at the entrance to the lingering view of the estate as you leave, this is a class act in every respect. A truly special evening out.
