We haven't been to La Belle for at least 8 month and were looking forward to the vegetarian burger - except it was taken off the menu. The other vegetarian main course options are utterly boring. Pasta&quiche, sandwich&salad. Sad. In desperation I ordered a starter, mushroom ravioli which at R 95 is totally overpriced for what I got. And it... More

Situated at the Historic Alphen Farm, now a Hotel, you can't go wrong here! Delicious food, amazing baked goods and a fabulous wine list.... A great place to sit with friends and enjoy a languid lunch under the oaks... Highly recommended! In winter the decor indoors is gorgeous and there is a roaring log fire!

Typical bistro menu, couple items missing from it however on our visit e.g. line fish, avo etc. Quality of food is ok - food is fresh and relatively well prepared. Poor on the detail e.g. french fries not crisp. Errs towards expensive with regards to value. Service average, atmosphere relaxed, pleasant evening.

The woman who answered the phone had difficulty understanding English and I had to repeat myself a few times. They didn't have 2 things on the breakfast menu and when we finally ordered French toast, they came back 20min later to say they were out of stock. When we then ordered scrambled eggs we were told that breakfast was now... More

Had both the beef and chicken burgers. They were poor at best. We refrained from returning the burgers as we did not think they could improve upon it.

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...
