La Colombe, one of Cape Town's most well-loved and awarded restaurants, has achieved an impressive 12th place in the San Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurants of the World Awards 2010. This bastion of contemporary French-meets-Asian fine dining thereby also clinched the Acqua Panna Best Restaurant in Africa and Middle East Award.
Winner of both Chef of the Year and Restaurant of the Year in the Prudential Eat Out Awards 2008, and again honoured with the prestigious Restaurant of the Year title in 2009, La Colombe has also achieved the highest three star rating in both the 2009 and 2010 issues of the acclaimed Rossouw's Restaurants guide.
Luke Dale-Roberts was appointed as Executive Chef of La Colombe in November 2006 and his culinary creations are for the discerning diner in search of imagination and superb technique.
He starts with the thought that "A dish has to be understandable and have bold flavours". From that I build it and add textures and presentation. I'm always tweaking and refining to find a dish's full potential.
My mantra is "taste, taste, taste!"
With impeccable service and an award-winning wine list, La Colombe is a truly unforgettable experience!
