Having heard mixed reviews about La Belle, we decided to join them for lunch this past Saturday, 28 June. We walked inside of the restaurant and selected a table which was closest to the fireplace - a couple had just left so the table we chose hadn't been cleared yet but we sat down nonetheless and waited patiently. We were... More

Twice I had a dinner at. La Belle and both times sent the food back. They should stick to serving only breakfast and pastries. The staff are outstanding. Roz Roselle Guildford United Kingdom

The menu is varied and interesting but a little overpriced. But with a glass of wine, sitting outside in the garden, or inside by the fire you simply cannot beat this destination in Constantia.

Four of us went to La Belle for supper. Atmosphere is nice, and service was good initially, but deteriorated during the evening. Having read past reviews, which mentioned problems with the pork belly, we decided that the problems would have been sorted out by now. Wrong. Two of us ordered the pork, which looked reheated, and definitely did not have... More

Enough said! Apart from the fresh, delicious yet unpretentious food it's a beautiful spot when the weather's good to sit under the trees.

Four of us dined at this Bistro - the atmosphere is great, but the wine list is very expensive for a bistro in the wine lands, with no house wines, which are typical of a good French Bistro - even up market Pot Luck has house wines. The prices for food are more in the fine dining category than a... More

We had dinner at La Belle at the recommendation of our hotel. We had a nice table on the terrace, the place had a good atmosphere, didn't like the music from the restaurant next door though. The food was excellent and good value. Some of the food was quite salty which was fine for us but could be a problem... More
