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

Love this restaurant. Go there often and enjoy it every time. Great atmosphere, great views, great service and fantastic food. Not cheap but you will not find better anywhere. My favourite is the Cherry Flambe for desert.

My wife chose to go back to Bel Punto for her birthday as we had celebrated there last year. On a perfect cloudless, windless Durban winters day the view from our table on the covered verandah next to the railing added to the excellence of the food. Oysters, crayfish with angel hair pasta, risotto vitello and grilled prawns were rated... More

We were in Durban this last weekend and decided to stop off and have lunch in Umdloti. Bel Punto seemed like a good choice from a position perspective as the views from their open balcony over the ocean are outstanding. We ordered the Parma ham pizza and the stuffed calamari, both of which were the more pricey choices in their... More

Had lunch there recently. It was an amazing sunday, perfect weather, a table with sea views and a most enjoyable meal had by all. The restaurant was buzzing which is a sign that the food is excellent. Extensive wine list including a selection of award winnig wines catering for all tastes. Meal choices worth mentioning were the Veal with mushrooms... More
