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...

Had a great dinner here and lucky to get in as so busy. Started off in the very lively bar first until a table came free. The waiter was really helpful and gave us some good tips on ordering. The steaks were amazing - bit large but delicious. They also do these amazing baked onions - have to be tasted... More

Ate here on recommendations of two friends. It's not fancy - we had steak, fries and creamed spinach - simple fair but the steak was fabulous. Very wide selection of wines by the glass with a knowledgeable attentive waiter. Would definitely eat there again !

Saw the menu, looked good, Burrata( you don't often find) steak tartare (stating the real deal),Carpaccio and Calamari. We approached the host at around 5pm, and she seated us outside as requested. Based on the reviews and it's self proclaimed "Best Steak in Cape Town" all I can say was from start to finish is POOR! We waited about 10... More

Dear Vscialacomo, my sincerest apologies. This is definitely not our level of service or food (as you stated from previous TripAdvisor reviews). Please can you make contact with me on support@slickrestaurants.com as I need to know when this was so I can investigate as it is not acceptable. Kind Regards, Andrew - Belthazar More

Three of us went to this restaurant and really enjoyed our experience. This has got quite a focus on wine and the choice is a little overwhelming, but the waiters are very knowledgeable and will help you find something according to your tastes. I would recommend going for a steak as two people in my party did and they loved... More

We ate at this restaurant last night and I have to say the staff were excellent as was the food. We had steak for mains and it melted in the mouth our waiter Leon was first class and the Sommelier was excellent too very knowledgeable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Enjoy we certainly did!!

I am a beef-a-holic. Belthazar serves the very best steak that I ever had. I was only in Cape Town for a few days but I had to go back for that fillet a second time before leaving. The steak was so tender that it came apart with a fork and the house basting sauce is superb.

if you like to have a nice evening with meat and wine... Belthazar is the right place. They have over 700 different wines... 250 of them served by the glass. They bing it to you with a small sticker with all relevant information about grape, age, etc... Food was delicious... we would have loved to go twice... Reserve in advance!... More

A great setting on the waterfront but typically touristy as well, which of course we expected. The inside was really nice looking, although we sat outside. What was surprising though was that the different meat skewers we ordered were both overcooked and tough, leaving the food experience below par. It was a real shame as the taste of the meat... More
