We have been many times to Bel Punto and have NEVER been disappointed! Excellent food. Well trained staff, but don't be in a hurry - service is not "slow" but they want you to relax and enjoy.

We had high expectations, perhaps that is what let us down, the food was very good though and the setting and service was lovely.

We've been regularly visiting Durban and Umhlanga since 1985 and can now safely say we've found the best restaurant to date in the North of the city.

Just a great place especially watching the moon rise over the Indian Ocean. Great food and good service. One of the best restaurants in the north coast.

Great location 50 meters from the shore break! Great food so similar to one off the first italian pizza restaurants in Durban IL PESCATORE in Glenashley years ago. The starters excellent try the grilled calimari then on to a pasta off your choice all good! Do this restaurant at lunch time to enjoy the view.

We regularly eat here, especially when entertaining international guests or celebrating a special occasion. The seafood, pasta and seasonal specials are some of the best in Durban. Although pricey, the quality and beautiful views of the ocean are well worth it.

I try visit Bel Punto every time I go to Durban - the food is consistently good. Very busy, so make sure you book a table. We tried different pasta dishes this time around and they were good, but not amazing. I regretted not going for a prawn or langoustine dish as before.
