Delicious food and delicious wine with a great view! Would go back there anytime. Love how involved the host was in recommending food and wine.

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

One of best experiences during our trip through ZA. The service was almost perfect. The quality of the seafood was excellent and the Italian dishes were also very good. For us, that restaurant should be rated as number one.

We were treated to a meal at Bel Punto last night and it was excellent. Both food and service are top class. We had a very attentive and knowledgeable waitron - his meal suggestions were great. The fried olives for starters were some of the best I have tasted and our seafood mains were outstanding - the fish of the... More

The restaurant is the brain child of an established businessman who knows how to keep the clientele happy. It boasts the best position on the small promenade of this sleepy hollow, but don;t think you'll get bored while dining out at Bel Punto as guests come from far and wide. We did just that , to celebrate a family members... More

Friends raved about the restaurant so we were excited about going. The view is great. Service was great. It ends there. Very very noisy. Food took ages to arrive. We had mussels for starters. Nice but very few compared with mussel pots in other restaurants. I had the ox tail which was nice but bland. I had to add chilli... More
