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.

Late lunch

Great location. Excellent service. Avocado spritz was a great starter. The linefish and the crocodile were both very good. My previous experience with crocodile was not as good. This was moist and the slightly applied home made bbq sauce complemented the meat. The wine recommended went well with... read more

I broke my rule about not eating at the Waterfront to try this place as it seemed to have a few good reviews. What a mistake, I hasten to say that we did not order steaks, and perhaps that was our error, as they seem to have got some positive reviews here. However we went for the seafood - eye-wateringly...

This place is great, lovely beer and wine, very nice steak, and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly, we had Tracy who was a superb waitress. Excellent value too.

Quite expensive restaurant but by far the best steak I ever had in my life. I'm coming to Cape Town several times a year but every time I go here to order medium rare fillet - by far the best! The rest food is also nice, including sea-food - but probably you may find the similar quality around (and go... More

We ate here New Years Eve 2015 and in all honesty, you cannot expect much from a busy place on NYE but we were pleasantly surprised, the food was excellent (could have been a tad hotter) the service wasn't bad, we did finish up paying at 11.55pm!! But as you're right on the waterfront we just exited the restaurant and... More

we had good regencies, but the food was exceptionally poor, good wine and good hospitality though, we had a salad that was very average, and a Cape-salmon witch was without any taste at all

Ate there 3 times in 8 days...I think it says it all! Very good food, a great variety of local wines, a long list of the best ones actually, friendly and polite staff and a nice setting in Alfred & Victoria Waterfront! I truly recommend!

The only thing that let this down was that were seated in what could be used as a private dining room at the back away from other guests but in direct line of the door on an evening with chilly winds. The staff, food and wine were excellent. Even the smallest steak eas too big for me to eat. Sausage... More
