Having taken the trouble to book this months in advance we were hugely disappointed. The service was very poor, our waitress had been allocated tables in two sections out of sight of each other. We had to ask for the red wine to be opened. When both our starter and main were served only three of the four dishes arrived... More

Ordered dim sum for starters and sushi as mains. Both were ok, but nothing more. Add a rather slow service and a noisy atmosphere and you have Beluga. Doubt I ever will be back.

We ended up at Beluga by chance - power load shedding shut down the restaurant in Camps Bay where we had reservations, and I remembered the name of this restaurant from a Conde Nast list and fortunately it was not too busy. We ate outside - it is in an old foundry - very interesting atmosphere - enjoyable. The service... More

The ribs...are...to...die...for!!! I'm salivating just thinking about it. The service was excellent. All the waiters were attentive, and the manager was walking around checking if everyone dining were happy. Definitely worth dining there :)

Got there by recommendation. No table available. It's the silly season. Eventually we got seats at the bar. It is a busy work station and not just a bar serving thirsty customers, therefore we needed to exercise patience before we were attended to. Once the barman got our order right, we were happy campers. Food was good and so were... More

Restaurant is in a converted warehouse,with an inner courtyard. The atmosphere was electric,the staff were brilliant and helpful,and the head barman was exceptional with his greetings. The food and service was brilliant,I had a steak cooked to perfection.The restaurant is situated a block behind the Waterfront the quality and ambiance was much better value than the restaurants but the bay.

The menu is lovely covering food from sushi and wan tons to steak and lovely fish dishes, all cooked well. The waitress was fully conversant with the dishes an answered our queries fully. Wine is a little... More

There aren’t as many solid dining options as you’d think in the Greenpoint area, but the manager at our hotel didn’t hesitate in recommending Beluga for dinner. My partner and I heartily agree that this chic spot in the interior courtyard of the century-old Foundry building is well worth a go. We went rather late on a weeknight, but we... More

Really enjoyed this high quality place without the high prices! From the sushi and line caught fish to the ostrich filets, this place was enjoyable as seemed a bit younger, trendy crowd with hip music and a great patio outside.
