Expensive is one thing, misleading customers is another. The Bel Punto menu set out in the Eat Out web site states corkage to be R 50 per bottle, updated on the 9th December 2014. The restaurant home page gives no prices. We took a bottle of champagne and were charged R 150 corkage. I booked a week in advance and... More

It is always most refreshing to find a seaside restaurant with impeccable views and an awesome selection of delectable food and wines to choose from, served by knowledgeable and professional waiters on white linen decked tables! Bel Punto is such a restaurant, and more! The baby crayfish and avo starter @R139 is worth every cent. I chose the Tagliatelle Scampi... More

We have never been disappointed before, BUT yesterday definitely not 100%. Good service, but Melenzane not hot enough & had to be heated up again, I ice cream already melted in dessert, coffee cold, the special of the day, fish cakes, so badly presented they looked unattractive, and do not think of choosing the prawn antipasti in lemon butter -...

This restaurant came highly recommended, but I was a bit disappointed. Excellent service, but very expensive (food and wine). Delicious oxtail, but mediocre lasagne and pizza.

What is it with the Cape, where the restaurant business is generally way more interested in your wallet than your satisfaction? Maybe they figure that because so many of their patrons are transient tourists, unlikely to return anyway, they don't really have to try. Just offer a sea view or slap a celebrity name on the front (like Reuben's) and... More

After passing the restaurant many times, we one day decided to give it a visit. The only seating available was right next to the pizza oven, and this was a Durban summer, which is already very hot and humid. That visit obviously didn't last long and we decided to move to the trusty Bush Tavern. We decided that we still... More
