Fodor's Review

Constantia Uitsig is home to three good restaurants, but it's La Colombe, with its excellent Provence-inspired food with an Asian sensibility, that attracts the most attention and garners every award. The eight-course Gourmands tasting menu, inspired by the restaurant's direct environment, is an exquisite culinary experience that is all the more sublime paired with wines chosen from the excellent winelist (or tome, as they affectionately refer to it). The à la carte chalkboard

menu items are equally superb, including creative wonders such as foie gras–topped medallions of springbok loin in a cherry wood jus. The pan-seared scallops and pork belly are not to be missed, and the pistachio-and-apricot terrine will finish your meal with the perfect sweetness. Fantastic service and the classic yet warm ambience of the wine estate's old buildings, are the perfect setting for a splurge of a meal that you won't forget.
