The breakfast, whether the healthy option or the traditional was excellently presented and was good. The temptations in the pastry line were mouthwatering and the coffee served is good coffee. The service was good and friendly and the location whether in or outside excellent.

I love the offering that The Alphen hotel has to offer and its a stones throw of home so makes for convenient dinning. La Belle is cosy indoors with one long seat should you be a large group and smaller individual tables to choose from for a more intimate experience with an outside options with heaters for cooller nights.

Very juvenile restaurant with inexperienced attempts at salad combinations!! I will not go there again!! The service was poor and when we asked to sit at a more conveniently placed table we were told we couldn't - then we could all because the waitress gained permission to serve us at a table not assigned to her!!

A perfect place to spoil yourself with a nice coffee and cake, or going out for breakfast on Sunday with the family. Lovely place. Friendly staff. A place for real foodies!

for our first dinner in the Cape area, this was the perfect place. Relaxed atmosphere, between a restaurant and a bakery, the attentive service, good food and reasonable price, were exactly what we looked for.

If there was a rating for 'good' as opposed to 'very good' I would have designated 'good'. Anyway, through circumstances we have ended up at La Belle three times in the last couple of months - once at Camps Bay and twice at Constantia. Both branches were similar for food and service. The Constantia branch is beautifully situated at The... More

We often head off to La Belle after movies on a Sunday evening. The mushroom burger, the Norwegian salmon and the chicken schnitzel are all delicious. Breakfast at La Belle is also great and the eggs Benedict is one of our favourites. The staff are always friendly and the atmosphere is always good.

We visited the Alphen hotel as they were one of the few restaurants open on the public holiday. From the front gate security guard, to all staff working at La Belle they were super friendly. We enjoyed coffee and French Toast which was yummy. The Lavazza coffee was also good. The view over the garden and artworks is lovely and... More

I've tried La Belle a couple of different occasions. Good spot for breakfast, tea or lunch. Always full so definitely book ahead. Food good, some items a bit pricey.
