The staff were not particularly friendly and the service was slow. The food promised so much but it wasn't great, it was just OK. My tuna main course was warm, not hot, and not very tasty. No one came away thinking they had had a great/good dining experience.

Beluga has a nice atmoshere. Lots of young people and dynamic. Service is very friendly and adequate. Its a large restaurant. The quality of the food is average. If you really want high quality food visit the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape town.

We came to place 3 times in 4 days since we stay nearby. Two of those nights are weekend nights and they were great. The 3rd visit is a week night and food was noticeable worse.

This resturant is located close to our hotel. We stumbled onto it and tried it because it had some items on the menu that we had never heard of. Don't remember their names, but they were very good. Some sort of ground meat with veg topped with an egg mixture. Quite tasty. Price was reasonable and wine was good.

Our excellent concierge at the Cape Royale recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Be sure to try the 'tuna crunch' !!!

I went to Beluga on Saturday night with my son and my daughter as they both love sushi - we were not disappointed - no reservation but they found us a table so long as we were finished by 7.30 pm - not a problem as it was 6.00 pm at the time. We were served very promptly (probably to... More

During our vacation a few month ago we went there twice - because it was just too good. Try the tasting 3-course-meal - you will love it. Also the sushi is really tasty. The service is more than exzellent. Check out the nice seating area outside on a sunny Sunday (after)noon.
