Great service... Ambience! Lots of locals using this venue as a 1/2 house between Cape Town & Port Elizabeth.

Food is ok. Nothing extraordinary really but a great place to unwind...

La Belle Alliance has a beautiful setting... Unfortunately the food is overpriced. I'm glad I went, but not really a place I'll recommend considering all the other great restaurants in town.

We ate our lunch here and the riverside setting made for a very pleasant break. The service was friendly and prompt, and we loved observing the birds as much as the people watching. It was interesting to learn about the historical building. The food was freshly prepared and represented good value for money. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this pretty restaurant to anyone.

The restuarant was very pleasant, but because it was almost empty it seemed to echo. It was also not very warm. The food was very good and we tried many new flavours. The service was friendly.
