Exceptional service, AS USUAL!!! I have been here a few times: the food, execution and service is always on par!! Only let down by decor and bathrooms. Last night the presentation was jaw dropping: every meal came with its own show!!

Superb food and service, but read the menu carefully. Wine pairing is outrageously expensive. R100 for single tot of Whiskey and R150 for glass of bubbles Basic meal ended at R4200 for two: please !!!!

I've been to most of the well-known restaurants in Cape Town over the years, but for some reason I never got to eat at La Colombe. Now I did and man do I regret not visiting this place earlier. First I got struck by the...great ambience and the friendly staff. From the moment you enter the restaurant to the moment you leave you feeling like they treat you as guests of their own house. The chef's menu was full of amazing flavours and textures. To me this experience comes close to what you would experience at Noma (which was awarded Best Restaurant in the World 4 times).More

We were lucky enough to be treated to an anniversary lunch by our daughter and had the time, and meal of our lives. One steps into a magical sphere the moment one arrives when Van Zyl and his team welcome and pamper. Every plate is...a feature of delight designed to please and tease both the palate and the eye. Our table service led by the professional and discreetly friendly Georgia made the occasion. Thank you one and all.More

I visited La Colombe with a group of friends and had incredible time. The setting is super picturesque and the restaurant blows you away as soon as you enter. We opted for the tasting menu with drinks pairings, every dish was a work of art....Our waiter Dale was great fun and kept is entertained. The bill for 6 people came to around 18000 Rand and that was with a few glasses of champagne each and 4 additional bottles of wine. An absolute bargain for what you get.More

Exceptional in every respect - Every morsel on the plate a real flavor popper. Each ingredient had its place and brilliant service. Besides the gastronomic experience, there was also an element of 'supper theatre' by the chefs, all in all, EPIC.

What a spectacular evening! Every course at La Colombe is sensational and Michelle is a Sommelier extraordinaire! What makes La Colombe exceptional is that no detail is overlooked - the experience is designed to continually surprise and delight ... even the cutlery is bespoke and...different for every guest.More

Anniversary dinner could not have been more special, with amazing food, friendly but professional service and the most amazing sommelier I have met - Michelle. She made our evening with unique recommendations and incredible expertise on all wines.

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.
