Owner's description

La Colombe is one of South Africa’s most iconic and internationally acclaimed fine dining establishments.
Originally founded on the historic Constantia Uitsig wine estate it has recently relocated under new ownership to the picturesque Silvermist organic wine estate at the top of Constantia Nek, with breathtaking views overlooking the Constantia wine valley, False Bay and Hout Bay.

Executive chef Scot Kirton’s philosophy and approach lies in the fusion of Asian and French cuisine and the pursuit of excellence and perfection on each plate, resulting in numerous local and international awards.

The freshest seasonal produce, uncomplicated clean flavours and classical elegance are the essence of his inspiration and passion for food. Scot’s delivery of classic signature dishes and his endless array of sublime new inspirations form the mainstay of La Colombe’s À la Carte menu, as well as the Gourmand Tasting Menu.

With impeccable service and an award-winning winelist, La Colombe is a truly unforgettable experience.

    We went to La Colombe fore my birthday this year and it was as spectacular as in the past. The service is outstanding with attention from all the staff. The cuisine spectacular presentation is awe inspiring. The flavors are sublime. We have been to other similar venues recently and this still gets our vote way above the rest. We will always return.
    A visit to La Colombe is such a treat I do not even know where to begin. Over the years we have treated ourselves to the Winter Special. This year being our 10 year anniversary, we decided to go the distance and experience the Gourmand menu. Wow wow and wow! I really believe that each year James and his team get better and better. The food was completely out of this world and the table side theatre with the chefs preparing little experiences in front of you, takes the dining experience to the next level. The food truly is of the highest standard and the creativity, just magic! It goes without saying that the service from the incredibly friendly / experienced waitering staff and Sommeliers makes your dining experience complete. If you have not experience La Colombe put it on your list of things to do! Thank you to the team for making our evening so memorable.
    New menu launched a couple of weeks ago and it is beyond incredible. Every dish is creative, playful and inventive but at the end of the day it all comes down to taste and that is definitely the case here. The restaurant is beautiful and the service is friendly and not intimidating as it could often be at fine dining restaurants. If I had Michelin stars I would give it to La Calombe.
    Winter menu fabulous and amazing value at only R495pp. A real spoiler and treat for that special occasion. It's been a long time since my last visit when at Uitsig and this is just sooo much better! Get there and you won't be disappointed even on the poor SA Rond.
    When you pay around R2000.00 per person for a meal, you expect excellence, something close to perfection. Sadly, La Colombe did not come close to this when we visited in Mid-September. Sure, the food was good, but it needed to be more than that. It needed to be memorable and none of the dishes really were. In fact, the most memorable morsel of the entire procession of dishes was a sweetbread so saltly that is was inedible. Whilst the wines accompanying the meal were certainly top class, you would expect a bit more generosity. R100 seems a lot to pay for a half-glass of just about any South African wine. The final nail in the coffin was the service. At one point, a member of staff missed the bowl into which she was attempting to pour my soup and distributed it over my trousers instead. I was fine with this - mistakes happen. What was not acceptable was the reaction 'oh, at least your napkin was there'. What made matters even worse was that I had to clean up the mess on the table myself. It is possible that we went to La Colombe on a bad night. It is possible that they are struggling to handle the pressure of expectation that comes with success. It is possible that their success has made them arrogant. Whatever the reason, if you are looking to have a blowout meal, I would suggest another option in Constantia.
