Pastry Chef André Steyn joined La Colombe just over a week ago, having worked at Delaire Graff for over three years. He attracted my attention with his creative desserts as well as forest Amuse Bouche presented in a glass bowl whilst he worked at Delaire. The Chef once had a dream to become an architect, and it is our restaurant industry’s luck that his life path led him to cheffing.  (more…)

La Colombe has announced the name of its new restaurant at Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek, as well as its opening date. (more…)

Reuben’s Franschhoek, and The Big Dog belonging to Terbedore Coffee Roasters, opened in Franschhoek in May. Both restaurants appear to be very popular amongst locals. A further new Franschhoek restaurant is rumored to be opening. The Promenade in Camps Bay is undergoing major changes, with Blues and Mezepoli appearing to have closed down, the former having operated in Camps Bay for 30 years, and having put Camps Bay on the tourist map. The Hard Rock Café is said to be opening in the Blues space, and Zenzero is undergoing a renovation. 

We update information about newly opened and closed restaurants continuously, and welcome such news.
