    When we meet a person, we might say "The pleasure is mine" or "The pleasure is all mine." In the USA, at least, we would not say "The pleasure belongs to me," but there is nothing that is wrong with it.

    Pleasure belongs to me = incorrect

    Most people would say either one of the two examples Mike has provided.

    "The pleasure is (all) mine" is idiomatically correct.

     

    The phrase is, "the pleasure is all mine". If you paraphrase fixed expressions like this, then you kill the meaning. Idioms and fixed expressions should be learnt and used exactly.

    I'd just say "my pleasure".
