Great vibe

beluga is well balanced in terms of ambiance, service and food; all are very good. Not over the top and simultaneously not an above average establishment. Worth every cent!!

We had a great meal here, but I am surprised no one has mentioned the overtly sexual photos that decorate not only the website, but the menu and the walls in the restaurant. I don't know if this is part of their vibe? I am quite passionate about the objectification of women, so I thought maybe it was just me,... More

Beluga does great sushi alongside a diverse menu. It's a busy spot and I recommend you book, but it's one of the few restaurants I consider worth waiting in a queue for a table, summer or winter. The atmosphere is chaotic in the way of a big popular restaurant filled with people from the surrounding ad agencies and creative design... More

My husband and I used to regular at this establishment. We loved the food and variety, especially the Kingklip and sushi! The last time we were there, however, my husband had sushi and I didn't, and got horrible food poisoning. We share plates and I had everything he had to eat that day - except the sushi. Didn't go back... More

Beluga's has a great half price special on sushi, cocktails and starters before 7pm. They have some of the best cocktails and the sushi was good (not the best I've ever had though). The service is really incredible. Book ahead as it is very busy and even with half price specials it's a little more pricey than your average restaurant.

This was one of the better eateries in Cape Town but no longer. It's sister in the VA Waterfront a better bet. Also, watch your belongings. A friend had her handbag stolen off her chair whilst there. I also hear that the branch in Hazelwood, Pretoria closed down. Not surprised since I celebrated a friends birthday there recently and both... More

We go here often, usually a safe bet so I truelly hope this caught them on a bad night. Lukewarm service and cold, bland fillet steak. What went wrong!?

Beluga what a treat of a restaurant. It is situated in an old architecture square within Green Point, the old train is one of the restaurants when you walk into the courtyard, but the Bar once you walk into the restaurant is amazing. A friend suggested that we eat at this restaurant because I did not know Cape Town that... More
