Breakfast feeling pure!

The setting is within an old Cape Dutch Farm, big oak trees and the tables are spoilt by the sun. Breakfast dishes are quite special and very delicious. Little bit pricy but worth... read more

If you want to sit and enjoy a beer La Belle is the place to go, if you want to enjoy food rather take your business somewhere else. The chef or owner would rather cut corners than bringing fresh and interesting food to your table. Le Belle needs to find a chef or love for food that fits their surroundings.

Also good inside but you must book. Good service and good menu and good safe parking. The prices though remain a bit high for an eatery like La Belle.

La Belle has now become our regular spot to celebrate father's day. The menu will please the most demanding dad, and the service is courteous and efficient. Our one disappointment on this occasion was the time it took to bring our order to table, which although the restaurant was inevitably very busy, was longer than expected. We were sitting outside,...

Restaurant and bakery with flair set in the historic Alphen hotel. One is always welcome friendly and shown a table under the oaks or inside under the trusses. The place is usually packed, any time of the day. There is a bit of a buzz inside, outside is more tranquil and one could easily be on a wine farm. But... More

La Belle is in what was once a pub - you can still see the hefty solid wood bar counter which has become part of this trendy bistro. We were here on Friday evening and it was surprisingly quiet and just a little cold. The menu has a good selection of starters, main courses and desserts. At our table the... More
