Internationally acclaimed restaurant, La Colombe at Silvermist, has just re-opened after closing for six weeks for a major revamp. Look forward to experiencing fine dining in an inspired setting, with the finest seasonal ingredients and a new head chef, Jess van Dyk who takes over from former head chef James Gaag. The new executive chef, James Gaag promises a fresh and exciting menu. ‘I’m delighted to finally realise my dream of running La Colombe. My team and I are excited for this new and exciting chapter. We’ll be keeping some signature dishes on the menu and can’t wait to introduce everyone to the new dishes. First and foremost, it is a balance of flavours. I believe food should be delicious and inviting and not overthought, overworked or overcomplicated.’




La Colombe, means ‘the dove’ in French and this is seen throughout the design and art of the restaurant, such as the majestic, hand-drawn artwork by Lucie de Moyencourt on the main feature wall, and on the carved wooden doves by local artisan Lameck Tayengwa. The white oiled chevron oak floors, travertine mosaic and hand-cut bespoke terracotta tiles, and the touches of brass and oak complement the crisp white linen of fine dining.




Bone Studio’s interior designer, Hayley Turner took the restaurant’s majestic setting amongst the trees at Silvermist into account and transformed it into a refined treehouse with a calm, neutral palette, where the forest and the food do the talking.
