Didn't stay to eat, but according to my tour mates, the food was very good. They have sushi and some other oriental items on the menu, as well as more European fare.

We passed by and decided to pop in for lunch in the sunny courtyard area. Wow what a treat, we tried the lunch special of two courses for 140 rand and had one of the best meals I've ever had. Service and wine was also great. We loved it so much we returned for dinner on our last night (of... More

We made a reservation via email and received confirmation of our request for a romantic table for our 1 year anniversary celebration dinner. On arrival, there was no sign of our dinner booking, nor our request for a romantic table for two. We had a choice of any table that was vacant, we obviously did not feel special and when... More

The restaurant is a little hidden in a square within an unassuming exterior. We sat outdoors, though inside looked very nice as well. Every dish the waiter recommended was fantastic!

Best place to get sushi and dimsum in Cape Town during the hours of 1-7 and all of Saturday. Comforatble environment, great staff, original cocktails, yummy bread. I have been here not once, but at least once every 2 months while I lived in CT.

We visited Beluga for dinner on a busy Friday night. Our booking was for 8.30pm, but when we arrived early (for a drink at the bar) a table was free and we were seated immediately. The restaurant interior is large, open and vibrant making it perhaps more suited to groups of friends rather than an intimate dinner for two. The... More

On Sunday evenings they offer half-price cocktails, sushi and dim sum, so we started with a passion fruit bellini cocktail: slightly disappointed that this turned out to be passion fruit syrup, but pretty decent. We then decided to have a selection of 6 sushi and dim sum and ordered a bottle of wine. The food didn't arrive for well over... More

Having a friend down from Jhb, we decided to take her for a special meal in Cape Town. (None of us live in Cape Town) At booking we were told that we will have to leave at 2030 as we had an early sitting. The menu looked very impressive and I ordered the Tuna salad as a starter where I... More

We have been to this restaurant twice already and if I lived closer I would probably go every weekend. If you looking for great vibe and good food then please go here. The seafood is delicious and the service is fantastic.
