In case you missed it, La Petite Colombe opened in Franschhoek on 1 August 2017, in the space that formerly housed The Tasting Room. As its name implies, it’s the younger sibling of the feted La Colombe restaurant, which has been wowing visitors to the Constantia winelands for over two decades. As such, visitors to the Franschhoek iteration can expect the same stellar standards: world-class food, a superb yet unusual wine selection, and excellent service in a refined yet relaxed setting.
To celebrate its opening months, this exciting, fine-dining eatery is running a winter lunch special.
In good company
With young chef John Norris-Rogers at the helm (under the guidance of La Colombe’s Scot Kirton and James Gaag), you are assured of one of the finest meals in the land! (Take our word for it! We at there in its first week, and we can attest to this!)
