1. La Colombe
Befitting its namesake, La Colombe – ‘the dove’ – nestles amid the boughs of a eucalyptus forest on Silvermist Wine Estate. Taking its cue from the forests, the 11-course chef’s menu (there’s a vegetarian option and a reduced menu at lunch) melds flavours and textures from Asia, Latin America, Europe and Africa, across a menu that’s interactive, quirky and creative at every turn. The same goes for the inspired pairings by sommelier Joseph Dhafana, who works cocktails, craft beer and boutique wineries into his repertoire.
