TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site with more than 535 million reviews and opinions covering the world’s largest selection of travel listings, has announced the winners of its Travellers’ Choice awards for the best fine-dining restaurants around the world. Cape Town’s La Colombe was ranked seventh in the Travellers’ Choice Restaurants in the World.
This contemporary eatery, which incorporates local seasonal ingredients with French flair and subtle Asian influences, was the only restaurant in Africa to be selected.
“La Colombe has consistently received world-wide acclaim and our passionate team is extremely proud to be recognised among the top restaurants in the world,” enthused Chef Scot Kirton.
This year’s awards recognized nearly 400 fine-dining restaurants, including the Top 25 in the World. It also featured dedicated lists for Asia, Europe, India, Canada, Mexico, Australia, South America, South Pacific, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Award winners were determined using an algorithm which took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for restaurants around the world that were gathered over a 12-month period.
