With the majestic 12 Apostles Mountain Range behind it and the icy blue of the Atlantic Ocean in front, the la Belle Bistro and Bakery is certainly one of Camps Bay’s most treasured eateries, a veritable gem on the exquisite coast of Cape Town.
Modern finishes are complemented by deliciously decadent baked goods and treats; breath-taking views set off to perfection by wholesome juices and fruity cocktails. Indeed, la Belle is a trendy hotspot for friends to catch up, for a meeting with colleagues or clients, or for a romantic tryst. It is situated along the main road of Camps Bay, amidst boutiques, champagne bars, and restaurants that rival some of the country’s finest.
Delicious coffees are best enjoyed with cupcakes, chocolate torte, muffins, choc chip cookies, gingernut biscuits, crunchies, or Greek shortbread. Alternatively, the a-la-carte dinner menu boasts some excellent choices for a dinner with a difference. Starters include the likes of seared tuna carpaccio, prawn and asparagus risotto, seafood broth and mushroom tortellini. The mains comprise crispy duck breast with a citrus jus, Norwegian salmon on a cauliflower purée, slow-braised lamb shoulder, and homemade gnocchi with goat’s cheese sauce.
The desserts are irresistible. Try the chocolate fondant with vanilla anglaise, or the cinnamon banana fritters that are drizzled with chocolate and served with chocolate ice-cream.
La Belle Bistro is available to hire for special celebrations or events, for which a set menu or the a-la-carte menu can be arranged. There is secure parking available and the restaurant has heating and air-conditioning to ensure that patrons are always comfortable.
At la Belle, patrons are invited to watch the sun set over the horizon or enjoy the busy buzz of Camps Bay, while savouring top-notch culinary delights in chic surrounds.
