Bella on Rivonia Road in Johannesburg is a perfect place for lunch. Airy, friendly, relaxed staff, serving easy on the palate light food, which is consistently good, with a wide choice of specials of the day. It is very much the place for ladies who lunch.
Safe and ample parking.
Outdoor heaters to supplement the winter sunshine.
The fare is light bistro-esque. Quiches, salads, delicious fish-cakes, chicken pies in winter, generous open sandwiches, and delicious in-season puddings.
It’s not cheap, to be honest, but the food is good – although crab-cake and a small side salad at R 90 did strike me as a tad pricey.
Lunch for 2 with no alcohol, no pud, just a main course, fruit juice and a coffee each cost R237.
I have eaten at Bella about 5/6 times over the past 2 years.
