Great Steak!

They are famous for their steaks and they certainly lived up to their reputation. Each item on the menu is priced separately so all accompaniments are extra. i.e. starch, salad, veg

We visited the restaurant for our 12th wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic, but what impressed us even more was the quality of waitperson serving us. It was an experience. The quality of service and advice as to what to order was excellent! The setting is world class. The menu is expensive, but worth your while.

Food and wine are excellent with a warm and cosy atmosphere run by the best Manager (Rens Ratcliffe) and Staff who are very professional. This is definitely a restaurant you don't want to miss out on. Belthazar Restaurant and Wine Bar in the V&A Waterfront is tops. Best prepared food I ever had. Do yourself a favour and visit them,...

There are many eating options at the V&A Waterfront area. Our experience at Belthazar was such that we have no qualms in recommending this as a prime location. The waiter provided excellent advice on the steak and the Sommelier spent considerable time sharing her expertise on the best wines to match our food choices. She then came back to us... More

Food and wine excellent. Service also excellent. Ambience excellent. Loved it so much, visited it twice during our 5 day stay in Cape Town. Had our meals outdoors with heat lamps as it is winter . Steaks are the best ever and the wine selection substantial. Highly recommend this restaurant on Victoria Wharf

We visited Bethazar at the V & A Waterfront Mall twice in a week. Our first visit, on a Sunday afternoon, was spot on. The server helped us find table under a working heat lamp (it was quite cool to be sitting outside). Our service came in a fairly smooth fashion. The bread, served with complimentary sausage in spicy tomato... More

Dear SharonB919, thank you for the review. I am happy that your meals were perfect each time. My apologies for the wine service. Our wine list is huge and our allocation from the wine farms runs out before we change the listings. So it does happen, however you should have been informed. So again, my sincerest apologies, and we hope... More

I only had one evening in Cape Town with my daughter who is spending a few weeks there volunteering. Belthazar was recommended and it did not disappoint! I ordered the smallest beef filet on the menu and it was more than enough - and cooked to perfection at medium rare. My 18 year old daughter was more adventurous ordering the... More

Brought the family to Cape Town for a recent holiday and made a point of dining here after a dolphin watching trip out to sea. We were not disappointed. The weather was balmy and being a Thursday, the waterfront was pleasantly quiet. The service was snappy. Steaks were done to perfection and the wine chosen was fantastic. All in all... More

We sat outside in the beautiful "winter" weather (about 75 F, bright blue skies, gentle breeze) and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this excellent Waterfront restaurant. Guided by a genuinely terrific server, Brian R., we opted for freshly grilled fish, crisp salads and lightly sauteed spinach that had just the right amount of garlic and that precious sprinkle of salt...
