Cape Town, South Africa
Taking guests on a gastronomic voyage in an atmospheric, treehouse-like setting atop the Silvermist Wine Estate (following a move from Constantia Uitsig in 2014), La Colombe is the grande dame of Cape Town dining. In a minimalist space decorated in a muted colour palette, chef James Gaag’s swoon-inducing dishes feature all manner of culinary theatre. Think smoking Cape Malay snacks, tuna ‘La Colombe’ – a tinned miniature yellowfin tuna creation featuring micro herbs, avocado puree and an umami-rich broth – and the complex, perfectly balanced masterpiece of Karoo lamb.
