Situated high up on the slopes of the Constantiaberg mountains, on the breathtaking Silvermist Wine Estate, La Colombe is a veritable jewel in the Constantia Wine Valley’s crown.
Reimagined under chef-proprietor Scot Kirton in 2014, the internationally acclaimed two-decade-old eatery is known for its consistently superb service, stylish and serene setting and, of course, impeccable cuisine.
Beyond the ambience of the space, and intricacy of the menu, there’s a sense of playfulness that 30-year-old executive chef James Gaag brings to the table – which makes eating here an unforgettable dining experience, rather than just a meal.
And now, you and a (very) lucky plus one could experience the true magic of the esteemed eatery, by enjoying a seven-course spring lunch, complete with paired estate wine.
Your meal begins with contemporary versions of marlin tataki with burnt lime, and lamb roti; followed by sweet potato, wagyu drippings and oxtail; the famous Tuna La Colombe; kerala-style quail, prawn, and coriander; naartjie palate cleanser; Malay-style linefish; petit poussin, sweetbreads, and truffle; bahibe, blood orange, and smoked almond; ending with cashew, salted caramel, and rooibos macaron.
Immaculately conceived and presented dishes, stellar service in sophisticated surrounds and a beautifully curated wine list… sounds like a lavish lunch you won’t soon forget!
