Bel Punto was on the list of restaurants my daughter wanted to eat at before heading off to Cape Town.This we did on the 18th January 2015.Ticked off the list and slightly ticked off the prices!SQ for most dishes is annoying. Our lango starter in a very insipid white wine sauce were 4 very small langos which could have passed... More

I don't normally rush to review a restaurant, even when I've thoroughly enjoyed a meal. However because my dining experience was so horrific last night for what I paid, I've decided I had to write a review today. I have never felt more ripped off than I did after dining at Bel Punto last night. The prices they charge for... More

Some of the best food I've ever had but the prices are really expensive, but I guess it's the market they are catering for.

I have never felt so utterly ripped off. I had booked two weeks in advance and requested a table on the balcony, when we eventually managed to find parking for 2 cars in the chaos outside we were shown to a table which should have comfortably seated 4 but instead they tried to cram 6 of us around it. On... More

I had dinner there with my family. The food was spectacular. I had the crayfish with angel pasta. It was amaizing and definately my favourite. The mussel starter was out of this world. The service was awsome and the view spectacular. Thank you!

After much hype about Bel Punto we decided to give it a bash. Their pastas and salad were seriously below average, would have had a better meal at a dingy takeaway. R 1500 later for the 4 of us we walked away feeling ripped off and pretty speechless from the shock that they can even think that their food is... More

During December the restaurants in Umdloti need to tell it's patrons that they may not find parking for kilometres due to the biased excuse of police only permitting permit holders through Umdloti circle. My friend had no parking. They fined him for parking on a pavement at a taxi rank. I hope he doesn't pay these ghouls. Other than that,... More

I have eaten at bel punto about 5 times in 2014. Whilst the food is good quality and for new tourists,who have never experienced the restaurant, i am sure they will think it is good... but the last few meals have been very average and they never change their menu or push the boundaries but still you are paying top...

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
