La Petite Colombe – Franschhoek

Having visited La Colombe and Foxcroft previously our expectations were high. I am happy to report that La Petite Colombe surpassed all the expectations we might have had.

From Tim, just outside the reception, to the Meets the Chef Section, the open and welcoming space is sure to well for the Scot Kirton stable of restaurants.

I loved that they off the full menu for patrons wanting to get the full experience but all a reduce menu for us eaters who knows our eyes are bigger than out tummies.

I really can’t peg down a favourite because everything was exceptional. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and the sommelier was always close by ensuring our drinks were taken care off.

We thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Meet the Chefs” experience, a novel idea I wish more restaurants would introduce.

I would like to add that it’s quite clear every staff member at La Petite Colombe love their jobs they all so happy and that transcends into their dishes.

We wish them nothing but the best for the future, another one for your bucket list.
