We had a great experianse at La Petie Colombe, the food is amazing, the wine fantastic but everything is going so quick we where outside in 1:15 with 5 courses that is to quick, it looked like they would close early or something.
Been there know 3 times and the menu is not really changing.

Another great addition to Franschhoek thanks to Mr Singh, La Petite Colombe is the, can I say, edited iteration of the deservedly famous La Colombe in Constantia. Food is quite simply impeccable. The salmon tartar is unbelievable! Had the 9 course lunch menu and it brings me back to how utterly spoilt for choice we are in Cape Town for delicious and original cuisine.

Having been lucky enough to have visited a number of Michelin starred restaurants around the globe, La Petite Colombe is up there with the best of them! Great food, great service and amazingly priced...well done!

Not much more needs to be added about this place, except that the other reviewers here are on point. I went in with high expectations, and the food here still took me off guard. It was brilliant. The staff was very friendly, and our chat with the chef was very interesting (and... not as awkward as we had feared it would be). If you are going to splurge on a nice dinner while traveling, I recommend doing it here.

We'd been for dinner at the exceptional La Colombe in Constantia the previous week so when we stayed in Franschhoek and saw there was La Petit Colombe we couldn't resist.

The food is less complex than La Colombe but equally as delicious. We LOVED the chance to meet the head chef, which comes as part of the tasting menu - what a clever idea. The service there is exceptional. We were unfortunately sat next to a group of very loud, obnoxious, drunk people (who were incredibly rude to the staff) and when we asked if we might be able to move as it was ruining our meal they jumped in to action and didn't make us feel at all uncomfortable about asking, even being really apologetic, which they obviously didn't need to be as it wasn't their fault. We even got chocolates and bubbles as a congratulations on our honeymoon, which was a really nice touch. We would definitely go back.
