I went to the La Belle Bistro at the Alphen Hotel for a group function. The food did not live up to the pricing as far as I was concerned. My omelette actually ended up being a basic frittata that I would have done a better job of at home with and R100 for Eggs Benedict! The saving grace was... More

Recommended by my sister...first impression was what a beautiful spot, then blown away by the sight of delicious cakes, BUT highly disappointed with the service at this no shortage of waiters but serious lack of organisation from the waiter to the Manager! After being at our table for about 30 mins...we had had about 3 waiters take our order(3 times)...no... More

Went here for family breakfast to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Fantastic venue; friendly service but very slow. It was busy but not overwhelming but it was still very slow. Food was nicely presented when it did arrive but for the money the portions are quite small. There are better breakfasts to be had close by for half the price or... More

Decided to try this establishment for breakfast as it was close to where we were staying. Parking was a bit difficult but having found somewhere to leave the car we then had a very nice breakfast. Although I enjoyed it there are other places that are better.

We eat there often as we live up the road. The service can be slow, no one seems in a hurry. Just slow waiters. Good location. Good safe parking. We always feel that the food could be better or the servings larger or the prices more reasonable. If it was 5km away we would not be customers though.

Our group of 8 went for coffee on Monday morning. One or two of our group were served at a time - leaving the others waiting. One of our party never received her order.

This restaurant is set in beautiful and peaceful surroundings and there's plenty of parking. The menu offers delicious options - I recommend the seared tuna salad! There are a range of different desserts. Try the salted caramel tart...it is decorated with gold painted hazelnuts - absolutely divine! This restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

La Belle has a wonderful location and has always had a delicious, healthy menu, but this time the service was even worse than usual. It took a good 15 minutes to get anyone's attention to take our order (and after asking two service staff who then promptly disappeared). Our cocktails still hadn't arrived by the time we had almost finished... More

Me and my family were part of bigger gathering organised by others. It was our first time here so we came open minded. Bistro&bakery in the name sounded promising (relaxed atmosphere) and in this regard the place didn't disappoint. On the other side the service was quite slow - they were busy but that cannot be an excuse. Food took... More
