Le Petit Colombe is in a class of it's own when it comes to beautiful food that is both creative and filling.'We loved the chat with the chef at the "Mushroom Table" and the entire experience was on another level. We've been back twice and are celebrating a 90th birthday at LPC in February.

We took a deep breath and went for the nine-course tasting menu. It is possible to order this with a different glass of wine per course....we decided to stick with a lovely 2011 reserve Chenin Blanc. As to the food, superlatives were soon exhausted, so perhaps we will restrict ourselves to mentioning the fabulous chef’s signature dish of thin sliced yellow fin tuna accompanied by a selection of purees and edible flowers, or the ravioli of langoustine with hake veloute. The staff and sommelieuse are knowledgeable but friendly and the tasting menu guests are also invited to the kitchen to meet Chef. Altogether memorable.

This was a surprise 50th birthday lunch for my wife, 5 of us in total, and from beginning to end it was absolutely fabulous. We selected the Spring Lunch Special with wine pairing and we also opted for the “Meet the Chefs” extra course, which is excellent value at only R70 per person (£3.80 per person).

Fantastic service + great food & wine + a lovely garden for photographs after the main event = a totally fabulous lunch.

We loved this place. Extraordinary food, I had the best sauce with a fish ever. You get a set menu, all courses or reduced with or without pairing wines, as you like. We choosed the reduced menu and for us it was perfect. Meat, fish both great. Funny the “meet the Chefs” course with nice explanations close to the kitchen. Even our 13 y. old teeny loved it. If there is one mini complain: Try a more romantic light!
