We wanted a nice steakhouse dinner and that is exactly what we got. The starters were delicious. I had lamb ribs and my partner had calamari. They were both great but the lamb ribs especially and my partner decided to have them for his main course. Main course I had a rump steak served with carb- friendly caulimash. We skipped... More

Great for oysters and meat. Filetsteak was outstanding! Excellent wine card. Make sure you make reservations timely before-without you either have no table or will be seated in the (heated) area outside

Dear Herbie, thank you for the review. Our oysters are large, wild Mossel Bay oysters. We offer over 600 wines, of which 250 are by the glass, making us the biggest wine-by-the-glass bar in the world. Hoping to see you shortly again. Regards, Belthazar More

Let me start by saying that the Mijitos here are the best I've ever had and that includes Havana. Great starter of the personal choice shellfish platter- sweet langoustines and huge tiger prawns. The main was the 1 kg t-bone which did not disappoint. However, my partners side of mash potatoes was of the instant variety - she's Irish and... More

Dear Ian B, thank you for your review. I can assure you that there is NOTHING in our establishment that is from a packet and "instantly" prepared! We make fresh mashed potatoes every sitting, using a ricer/food mill, that produces the smoothest lump-free mash. The server was correct in saying we add butter, however we also add cream to give...

Nice location directly at the Cape Town Waterfront. Large menu and even larger wine selection. Our server was brilliant, helpful, friendly and caring. Were lucky as we just got our food before a power outage so we couldn´t try dessert. Steak was perfect. NIce view on Table Mountain. Would definetely return when again in Cape Town.

First class, Excellent, Perfect - These are some of the words we used last night to rate both food, service and wine. We were warmly greeted and seated over looking the harbour. The wine waiter guided us through the extensive wine menu and we settled on a local Chenin Blanc which was so good we ordered another bottle. The waitress... More

This restaurant has won accolades for the steaks they serve and rightly so! Despite a city-wide power cut (we were given a table as soon as it was restored) all the staff rushed to resume service as normal. Our first meal in CT and a great way to start our trip. Excellent and knowledgeable service with a wine list I... More

Visited for our last lunch before heading back to the UK. Unfortunately we had better meals elsewhere.

Dear Ken, thank you for your posting. My sincerest apologies that you did not enjoy your dining occasion at Belthazar. Our steaks are all a minimum of 28 days matured, so there is no blood in the meat, and the flesh is a different hue to regular meat purchased in a supermarket. We have a policy to replace any dish...

Are here on my first night in Cape Town. Had the Impala which was beautifully cooked and served with a good choice of potatoes and vegetables. Nice outdoor setting, I'd recommend.
