While the food was really good, comparing it to the main restaurant La Colombe, La Petite came second. The service was great and each waiter explains the dish really well. The atmosphere is pleasant but not as light and joyful as La Colombe - La Petite is more quiet so would recommend it for couples.

Fantastic restaurant in a visually jaw dropping setting! The food and architectural space of this restaurant is phenomenal. We enjoyed every minute of our time here.

I had high expectations prior to dining here. Unfortunately my overall experience at this restaurant was not a positive one because of an issue related to our booking.

As a restaurant participating in “restaurant week”, La Petite Colombe offered a special to clients who booked through the Restaurant Week website. My family and I chose to book the special the restaurant was running, and did so on the Restaurant Week website. Subsequently, the confirmation email and all other communication I received came from Dineplan AND Diningcity (the restaurant week app).

When arriving at the restaurant and confirming our Restaurant week booking, the manager informed us that they did not receive the booking made through the Restaurant Week website, and told us that we would be billed at the standard rate - even though we did exactly that and have the emails to prove it.

Even though the difference between the Restaurant Week special and the standard price was not significant, the mishandling of this situation and the confusion related to the issue was unacceptable. If this happened to us, I would assume it has happened to other customers who also booked through the Restaurant Week website. I do hope this issue is rectified as soon as possible, because the service from the waitstaff was exceptional and the food was great. However, our overall experience was negatively influenced by the issue related to our booking.

About La Petite Colombe

Cuisine: Fine Dining, Vegetarian

“A meal at La Petite Colombe restaurant is like doing the tango with a stranger. You enter the dance floor uncertain of what to expect, and when the music stops at the end, you are left breathless and speechless. And when words are not enough, only a hearty applause will do. I am clapping loudly right now..”

— Nidha Narrandes, Cape Town Etc.
