Address service issues.

We have been here a few times and the setting, food presentation,food quality come out tops. Heres the thing, we have never once had good service! The staff are far more interested in chatting with each other than they are with the customers. I read a few reviews and in most, people complain about... read more

Had dinner with a large group of Australian friends touring South Africa. we loved the warm and cosy atmosphere. Easy to access ... even our large tour bus was able to manoeuvre in and out. Loved the overall feel of the place ... just lovely!

We went there for our sons 21st breakfast. We were seated outside as it was a glorious day under the huge old trees. The place was very busy and our waitress was attentive at all times. The eggs benedict were delicious and my husband was very happy as he could substitute the ham for crispy bacon. The smoothies are all... More

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

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.
