About La Colombe

Tucked away under gigantic palms and oak trees, with the gentle sound of water in the background, La Colombe overlooks a secluded courtyard.  This is a special occasion experience in a tranquil and unrushed atmosphere.

The restaurant seats a minimum of 70 guests and a maximum of 100 guests, weather permitting. The Gazebo is the perfect venue for a smaller gathering of 12 guests. The Palm Room at La Colombe is a gracious venue with a delightful setting for private parties of 12 to 40 people, weather permitting.

With its old-world colonial charm, the Palm Room has its own bar and elegant dining table for special events. Luke Dale-Roberts was appointed executive chef of this award-winning restaurant in November 2006.  La Colombe was voted Best Restaurant in Africa and the Middle East and 28th Best Restaurant in the World in 2006 by UK Restaurant Magazine.  From here Luke has elevated the dining experience most recently winning the 2008 Prudential Eat Out Chef of the Year and Restaurant of the Year award.

Luke creates food for the discerning diner in search of imagination and superb technique.  He starts with the thought that "A dish has to be understandable and have bold flavours.  From that I build it and add textures and presentation.  I’m always tweaking and refining to find a dish’s full potential.  My mantra is ‘taste, taste, taste!"

Open 7 days a week Lunch: 12:30-14:30 Dinner: 19:30-21:30 Closed Christmas Night New Year's Day Sunday evenings in the winter months.
