Brilliant Meal

Dined here with business guests and there were 12 of us in total. Great table and despite how busy the place was it was not cramped at all. Great wine, great food and VERY attentive service. Cannot wait to return.

The food was good...but you can find the same quality at much better prices elsewhere in Cape Town near here.

A buzzing restaurant which offers great sushi as well as some tasty a la carte dishes. The weather still very warm in the evening so we sat outside in the court yard Our waiter was very helpful especially on the wines as the list offered no information other than a name and price. We followed his recommendation which was spot... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends and so expectations were high. Despite booking well in advance when we arrived no one could find our booking but after a drink at the bar we were finally found a table out side. Whilst we were allocated the most sweetest waitress even she could not make up for average food at expensive... More

Recently we visited Beluga.....again. This place never fails to impress - the ambience, the food and the decent wine menu all combine to provide something special. The sushi is exceptional I am told - I am not a lover, but the other menu items are enticing - I had the lamb and it was done to perfection. It is important... More

Beluga delivers excellent sushi and you can have it at half price on Fridays between 5 and 7 pm. It gets very busy so make sure that you book the table.

Wonderful setting at a foundry inner square. Great selection of food at moderate prices, just around the corner from Victoria junction and a short stroll from Vk&A waterfront

Although relatively expensive (this is Cape Town), the service is prompt and professional, the food is never a disappointment and the wine list is impressive.

We love sushi and because of all the great reviews we expected to have great experience. Arriving at Beluga was already a bad experience. The hostess gave us a feeling that we were very lucky she allowed us to have late lunch (terrace was almost empty). The waiter gave us a great service but with the first impression and the... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant in Cape Town. Came frequently. Now the service has dropped to a level that I do t want to return. My appetiser was tiny and disappointing. My side dishes for the main course we're forgotten. I was so hungry after 2 courses I ordered another appetiser as a dessert. Sort yourselves out please!!!!
