Alphen Hotel/La Belle is Constantia's answer to Lanzerac: well kept Cape Dutch surtoundings, a great terrace under the oak trees (with -alas- also a great view on the parking lot, but since it is Constantia, it is a rather spectacular parking lot), friendly and efficient service, excellent food (although the cooking team might be less generous with the supply of...

The setting of La Belle is idyllic. Sitting outside under the umbrellas next to the fire was a better choice than inside with an aircon and fire operating at the same time. Portion sizes were rather large so we shared the starters and mains. Mussel starter and perfectly cooked norwegian salmon for main course were delicious. The kale served with... More

We regularly visit La Belle and have always enjoyed the food and ambience. We also regularly order the same meals. We were therefore shocked to discover, at our last visit, that the sandwich portion has halved in size - exactly halved, it used to come as two portions of baguette, it's now one - while the price has remained the...

Situated in the Alphen Hotel, La Belle Bistro & Bakery is a very pleasant & friendly dining experience. Friendly & welcoming staff; a comprehensive menu; plenty of space; good service & tasty food - La Belle ticks all the boxes......& its local which makes it even more appealing. Plenty of safe parking.

This was our first visit to La Belle which we thought would be a good option on a sunny and fine Cape spring day. It is obviously a popular choice, judging by the number of people who were seated at the patio tables, enjoying the the very agreeable setting. The staff were very cheery and positive and we soon had... More

Guys your portions have shrunk and your food quality isn't what it used to be. This used to be my favourite spot and now I can't have that same bang for buck AND enjoy the ambiance that you also provide. I truly hope you bring the bar back up. I'll come again in a while and see but if it's... More

A beautiful place to have breakfast or Brunch in the summer, sitting in the courtyard. The Alphen is a stunning place.

We love going to La Belle - we think the hamburger is the best in CT. Tried something else on the menu last night and was so so disappointed. Can confidently tell you - don't order the Gnocchi. The manager was fantastic and offered to change the dish, but I was already quite full so declined. Which is why I'm... More
