Nice place and good steak

Have eaten here a few times and although I would always recommend booking they have a large outside seating area which you can normally get a table in. There were 4 in our group and we had steaks and the game kebab all of which were very good. A couple of us went for the 'new' grass fed steaks... read more

This restaurant is very well located at the center of the Waterfront and has a scenic view of the wharf and the sea. That is its highest advantage. Besides that, the steaks I had (selection of game meats) were good and fair. It is, however, overpriced and more "touristic" than I would desire. The service was very unprofessional and poor......

After a big lunch, decided to just have a smallish dinner and chose this place because of the outside ambience...nice heaters. Known for their steaks, only one in our party opted for the rib eye which they declared excellent. I chose their signature onion soup which was very good and not to salty. Excellent and helpful waiter. Very pleasant evening.

Restaurant is in a great location on the waterfront. We enjoyed crayfish & steak here and the extensive wine list made it very hard to choose! Service was good, despite the restaurant being very busy.

We were recommended this place for a great steak! The waiters really knew what they were talking about and guided you through your selection based on preferences and even recommended specific sauces for bringing out flavor. They have a specialist to help with the selection of wine to match your food which was a great touch. Really enjoyable evening!

We had an unbelievably wonderful dinner here in March 2008. Upon our second trip to Cape Town, we "saved" our last meal for Belthazar. Our friends had seen two pages of pictures in our photo book and we were all looking forward to dinner at Belthazar "Steak and Seafood" Restaurant. We were there on May 2, 2015 (a Saturday night),...

Dear HappyHikerCA, my apologies for this experience you had. We do not normally sell out of such a large number meat cuts. If we are not entirely satisfied with the maturation of our different cuts, our butcher will not make it available, as we do not want to offer anything that is not at it's best.

I ate here last week while in Cape Town on business. I was looked after by the barman as I had dinner sitting at the bar as the restaurant was full. This worked fine for me as I was dining on my own. The beef ribs were simply superb as was the side of creamed spinach, and I would go... More

Visited Belthazar on the Tuesday. And then took Business Guests on the Wednesday. Business colleague was anxious to dig into a Game dish. Had his opportunity to try Game Skewer that gave him his variety. Excellent pre-starters while you place your order. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
