At the Waterfront sitting outside with a view of the sea, the choice just had to be seafood. Friday night at 8pm the restaurant was busy. However I was politely welcomed, seated quickly and within a minuet my waiter came to introduce himself and asked if I wanted a drink. The menu has a good selection of fish and meat... More

Excellent steak. I am not a rib-eye steak fan but they certainly changed my mind as it was a fantastic steak cooked perfectly to medium-rare. The service was friendly and good. The only reason this restaurants receives 4 out of 5 is that the wines were not updated on the menu and they either didn't have the wine, weren't sure... More

There's something for everyone, and all of it came out perfectly. Our waiters attitude was fantastic nothing was too much for him. Portion sizes was great... More

My thoughts on Balthazaar @ VA Waterfront. Fantastic restaurant and dining experience. -- World class wine list -- World class seafood -- World class steaks -- World class location -- 5 star service OK, these are things you 'sort of' expect at an upmarket Capetonian restaurant. The differentiator with Balthazaar is the service and the quality. But I'm not going... More

This place is amazing. We had fillet steak and we ordered their amazing onion which was just unbelievable. The fillet steak literally melted in your mouth. If you go here you have to order the onion in a light batter....really unbelievable! staff very friendly too

Actually, it was three great experiences. On our first night in Cape Town, we came across this great restaurant down at the V&A waterfront. My wife's meal was excellent, but I can say more about mine - the game kebab: medium rare. It was fabulous. But that was just the start - we had been travelling for a long time... More

We ate here one night during our Cape Town stay and had an excellent meal. My wife had the Langoustines and I had a Game Kebab. My meat was prepared as I requested and were very flavorful and tender.
