The service was great and the staff very friendly, we ate from the Spring Tasting menu and could not believe the prices, I had been warned that this was a very expensive... read more

Beluga is a trendy restaurant and is sister to Sevruga in the waterfront. Everything is awesome on their menu. A bit pricy but the food is worth it. You definitely won't be disappointed. There is always specials running in the week so plan it or dont, either way you won't be disappointed

Beluga comes with a great reputation in a wonderful location in the center of Cape Town. The menu is varied with sushi, fish and a variety of meat dishes. We had a party of 15 to celebrate the wedding of my son. Our group sampled most of the entrees. I had the ostrich dish which was just ok. The overall... More

We had a delicious meal here! Service was excellent, atmosphere was delightful, and the food was amazing. Prices were extremely reasonable and the wine in particular was fantastic (go for a pinotage). Really excellent food in Cape Town!

We enjoyed our first visit to Beluga in Cape Town so much, we went back for seconds. The restaurant was only just down the road from our apartment in the Waterkant and atmospheric and friendly. Set in an old foundry building with original features still in place, we could tell it was going to be good because of the great... More

There are few places where you can say that everything you tried on the menu was good. Well it was. We had some ginormous platter of langoustines, kingklip, prawns and calamari - a must try.

Beluga is consistent in everything it does. Charming service, great menu choice, a great buzz day and night, winter or wummer and brilliantly priced. If you are looking for a romantic night out, a family get together or a lazy long Sunday lunch with their half price sushi and cocktail menu all day, this covers all the bases. Perfect base... More

On Sat 8 August 2015, my husband and I left Beluga after witnessing the most disgusting staff abuse by the owner (Oskar Kotze). Crockery was thrown,followed by the most vile verbal abuse (which I shall not repeat since it was so vulgar) of one of the hostesses.She ran to the toilet sobbing and screaming. She was clearly petrified and in... More
