“Closed on a Saturday Night? Surprising for a new venture”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We went along for dinner to try a new dining experience, but found La Belles to be closed and in darkness. There were no signs advising of problems, so we had to go elsewhere, but it was a disappointment. It wouldn't be fair to leave a negataive comment as we didn't get to try the food or service, but as one of the previous reviewer's stated - if your'e open for business etc. We will try it again in the future.

“Slow and no sense of urgency”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

When we visited it had only been open a week, but once you declare yourself open you are declaring yourself ready for business. We ordered 2 steak sandwiches and a children's ham sandwich along with drinks. Drinks came fast although not initially what we ordered and had a very long wait for our food. We gave up and left after thirty minutes and still no sandwiches. We weren't even asked how we wanted our steaks cooked.

“One of the new restaurants in Helensburgh”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Helensburgh has many new restaurants so each one needs to be good to attract and keep custom. The exterior and interior are modern, fresh and appealing. The downside is the layout of the tables in the rear restaurant as they are too regimented. Have not yet visited for dinner however the coffee was excellent as was the service. Friendly and chatty waitresses. Lovely fresh tasty scone but could have done without the sugar coating. Too sweet.
Will definitely give this place another try both for coffee and dinner to see if food lives up to expectations. Evening menu looked good and middle of the road price-wise.
