I booked a table for 20 guests at La Belle restaurant yesterday 14 September in lieu of my wife's 50th birthday celebration. We had one waiter Tawande that attended to our table. I eventually asked another waiter Audrey to assist him. The order was completely messed up and guests were given the incorrect breakfast ordered. The coffee that was served... More

I visited La Belle yesterday with two friends. The venue and welcoming ambience on entry was positive. The delightful array of cakes made the restaurant homely and warm. We were served, by what seemed to be, an untrained waitron. She did not understand what we were ordering and we had to refer to the menu showing her our selections. We... More

We popped in for a casual lunch and I liked the small but inventive menu. Looking at the plates being carried around, everything looked fresh and delicious. So full marks for presentation. However, I ordered the chicken pie with mash and when it came, the mash was COLD. Oops. And the chicken was bland to the point of tasteless. But... More

We recently enjoyed a casual birthday dinner and on another occassion brunch at La Belle. It is clearly a spot well supported by locals, and is well situated in the Alphen buildings. Although the menu is fairly limited the gourmet burger and calamari meal in the evening was very good. The breakfast was fairly standard for the price, but am... More

Situated at the historic Alphen Boutique Hotel in Constantia this deli is amazing. Divine food, lovely atmosphere and a huge fire on an open hearth in winter. They serve wonderful meals as well as an array of lovely tarts and cupcakes!

On a good day this is a great place to have a meal. The service is ok and the food might not be the best but it is ok. The prices are not cheap. Great location though.

Based at the lovely Alphen Hotel, La Belle Bistro is a good destination for a delicious lunch in Constantia. Popular with "ladies who lunch", the menu has a good selection for almost any appetite. I had the Norwegian Salmon with a side serving of fries (which we a bit dry, though). The salmon was sumptuous (take it medium, as recommended... More

Unlike many other reviews I read me and my wife decided to try this restaurant for a dinner, being guests of the Alphen and having had already a long day in Cape Town, it seemed ok not to drive to the Waterfront again. We already liked the atmosphere of the place as we used it every day for our breakfast... More
