Welcome to Belthazar, a veritable theatre of fine food and wine on the cutting-edge of "shoppertainment". A multi-purpose restaurant, grill, wine bar and gourmet home accessory shop, Belthazar brings a chic new concept in the culinary arts to Cape Town.Belthazar is the realization of a lifelong passion for wine shared by the Belthazar team. Their vision was to create the largest "wine by the glass" wine bar in the world. Experienced sommeliers expertly serve up to 250 of the Cape's finest wines by the glass and advise customers on a wine-list of up to 600 fine wines and sought-after rare vintages.Indulge your palate. Belthazar is so much more than good food and wine. Indulge in the best - from the world's finest wine glasses and revolutionary wine technology to the slick service, superb aged Karan beef, export quality Mozambican shellfish and the freshest South African seafood. We invite you to indulge in the grand finale - a platter of boutique South African cheeses perfectly paired with a selection of Cape port wines...

During a recent visit to Cape Town we got engaged during the morning, and wanted to celebrate with a special meal somewhere in the evening. After looking around the Waterfront a bit we chose Belthazar due to its welcoming atmosphere. Neither of us are big drinkers, and have different tastes in wine, so we were pleasantly surprised to discover that... More

It was all very delicious. We were served by Mrs. Nomvo and that was a real pleasure, she loves and understands here work very well. Also because of here our... More

Eating outside was very nice. Very clean place. The food was beyond great, I think it was the best steak I had ever had. Would highly recommend. The service was good. The location and how to get there was easy. They even called a cab for us because we didn't want to wait for hotel van to pick us up.

Located at Waterfront, which is a very touristic area, yet in the evening also full of ambiance. We enjoyed some great dishes (among others game kebab, which comprises four different types of game on a skewer) and roasted pumpkin at a very reasonable price. Wines were great too, as is often the case in Cape Town. Waiters were extremely friendly... More
