Very good

We have eaten here many times and we always enjoy our meal. The food is consistently great and the management takes good care of their patrons.

We recently visited Durban with a group of friends and was recommended to go to Bel Punto. We had high expectations and upon arrival everything seemed great. We were surprised by the high prices of food and especially wine, but since being in a group no one really wanted to go somewhere else. Starters were ok, but when the main... More

The waiter serving the table next to us did not know how to open a bottle of sparkling wine. In the process of trying to open it he sprayed my wife. When you are in pub and its new year one would not mind, but when you are out on a romantic dinner this is not expected. For an upmarket... More

We had a family dinner on holiday. The food is excellent and the location fantastic - right on the sea. It is on the pricey side, but is worth it as a treat once in a while

Wherever you are in KZN, book at Bel Punto, reject offers of a menu and dine on their famous quail and perfectly cooked vegetables, finish the meal with the most delicious cheese cake ever created and spoil your palate with an Illy espresso an bottle of Prosecco. I would do business in Durban just to be spoilt by an occasional... More

The owners of the restaurant are always there, mingling with diners and remembering faces. On special days like Mother's Day they offer a treat for the moms which is a nice touch. The food is magnificent and the view, overlooking the ocean, is stunning. Definitely book in advance and ask for the best table. If it's warm weather sit on... More

I always go to this restaurant when I am in Durban as their food has been consistently outstanding. Not sure if I went on an off night but very disappointing meal this time. The pepper sauce had separated and the manager did not seem to be bothered when I showed him, and the food was average. Not sure if I... More

Second visit to this restaurant with friends that have never visited before. They were really impressed. Outstanding Italian cuisine matched by equally superb service. A dream evening. (not cheap but worth the experience)

Try this restaurant - it has an extensive menu with tasty food. Pricey but worth it, and the views are incomparable.
