Nice to be back, sitting under the trees when not windy or tucked up indoors sheltering and soaking up the atmosphere. Service varies, sometimes it is slick othertimes you cannot catch anyone by the eye. Impressed by the lovely crispy batter on the kingklip and tasty fishcakes. Portions are more generous than they used to be and the food was... More

Thank you for your review. We so appreciate your honest and constructive feedback which has been passed onto our team. The kingklip is also one of my favourite dishes as well as the Vegetarian Burger. So perhaps give it a try when next you visit Constantia. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The outside seating is lovely, under oaks. The inside is also very nice - high ceilinged and Oude Kaap (Cape twee if you're cruel). The food is good, priced higher than average (keeps the yobbos out?), and we enjoyed our meal. Service was a bit slow, but the place was buzzing and busy. Lovely setting.

My husband and I made a booking for 11:30 only to arrive and find out we couldn't order until 12. Our waiter (don't remember his name)brought us a delicious salad and a bread platter. We had to pay for those, but it didn't matter. What mattered was that we didn't have to sit there and wait. He didn't rush our... More

My family and I went to La Belle this evening for dinner and I was sadly disappointed by what I received. I ordered myself a hamburger and when it arrived I was disgusted to see that it was still frozen inside. I informed the waiter and he took it back to the kitchen. A few minutes later the waiter returned... More

We've eaten at this restaurant several times and the service and food are consistently good. My husband's chicken pie was full of tasty pieces of chicken and mushrooms and my seared Norwegian salmon was done to perfection.

Dinner this evening was not great. Asked for Salmon cooked through, it was not. The medium rare fillet was absolutely raw. Sent it back and it came back with the right half as raw as the first time, and the left half overcooked. Sent it back again and the manager came with quite an attitude to ask what was wrong... 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
