I love the location of the restaurant on the river, with the prolific bird life, but unfortunately on this visit, we had to sit inside due to it raining. The toasted Tuna Mayonnaise Sandwich on rye bread was lovely, as was the cole slaw served with it. But when we finished eating, we were ignored for well over half an hour, with no offer of more drinks or desserts.

The owners are so friendly and welcoming. They saw us watching the birds and even though they had closed for the day invited us into the grounds to watch the birds on the feeders.

Had a quick coffee but friendly staff always. Food is nicely pesented and good value and variety. I often call in there as a local. The view over the river is spectacular.

We stopped for a late lunch, and loved the ambiance of the place. sitting in the shade under the trees, where the birds were all fighting at the bird feeder! Our food was very good, but prices were unreasonably high for the portions we got

The perfect spot for a lazy lunch, table under the shady trees watching the sunbirds fly to their feeders. We enjoyed a delicious light lunch and a bottle of wine. Great friendly service.

For ambience, service and food, this is the best by far we’ve been to in the area for breakfast. Well done to them: we would highly recommend it!

Friends and I were there for lunch, they ordered ciabattas which were approximately R100 each, which is just a small ciabata, which I consider to be very overpriced. One of my friends received her ciabata with one of the main ingredients missing and when she called the waiter to ask about it, they said they were out of stock. The waiter could have mentioned this before one ordered or while the food was being prepared, not afterwards when one notices a key ingredient is missing. Also, I ordered a cheesecake which when arrived, was running across the plate like it had not even begun to set. When the waiter returned and I asked about it, she said they were aware that it wasn’t set but they served it anyway.

Oh how wonderful to sit under the trees next o the river flowing by. After a heavy morning of shopping and having to walk home this was just a super place to cool down and be spoiled.

We had lunch here under the trees. The food was really good, the service was about the best we had on our trip to SA, and the setting was lovely. All in all an excel;lent meal and experience. My son is coeliac and there were gluten free options, and the staff were very helpful in that regard.

Went to Belle Alliance based on all the great reviews. But I have to say that it is quite standard. The nicest thing is the setting at the river and the little outside area under the trees. But drinks/dishes are nothing spectacular and service is not great. Compared to some of the other cafés / eateries at Swellendam, it is a bit lagging behind unfortunately.
