A stellar fine-dining experience in a glorious harbourside setting.

The youngest sibling of the La Colombe family, Pier promises (and delivers) culinary adventure and exquisite taste sensations… all with shimmering views over the harbour and V&A Waterfront. Chef John Norris-Rogers (who previously dazzled at La Petite Colombe) has a knack for coaxing the best flavours from the finest local produce and seafood, and together with the team traverses a spider-silk thread between theatrics, molecular gastronomy and classic French technique, overshadowing even the floor-to-ceiling vistas.

Pier Giveaway Chef

The chef’s menu is the showpiece of the experience, weaving your way in a leisurely progression through nine (often multi-element) courses that delight the eye as much as the palate. The seaside location informs the presentation, as sculptural ceramics representing shells, squid and corals arrive bearing little bites of bliss in the appetiser courses. Seafood-centric the menu might be (think snoek takoyaki, octopus with salsa matcha, crayfish chawanmushi) but there’s also a reminder of the South African inland landscapes with Karoo lamb and sweetbreads. And vegetarians will discover an equally complex and beguiling progression of flavours and textures.

Pier Giveaway Food

All part of the beautifully choreographed dining experience (and included in this prize) are the wine pairings chosen from the extensive wine list of South African gems to complement each dish. And for those not drinking, there’s an innovative and finely crafted non-alcoholic drinks pairing that’s alluring enough to tempt even wine lovers onto the wagon.

Complex, intriguing, and delicious from start to finish, this is an epicurean adventure to put on your bucket list.
