Great atmosphere for drinks with friends

Beluga has two feelings to it... At the bar section is the fast paced busy and pub like atmosphere where you can even have the full dining experience with your drinks and various sushi options, and the other side of the restaurant caters for the more traditional sit-down type of dining.

As a manager i always send my guest to Beluga simply because i have only heard amazing things about it. On Wednesday past, i had the divine opportunity of experiencing their dining magic for myself with family celebrating my Graduation. I was beyond blown away with the attentive service from the waiters and The food had reached all my expectations... More

We had a great night out at Beluga. We had a very nice table outside. The meat was extremely good and so was the service

We ate here with our South African friends on our last night in Cape Town. It was a Monday night but the place was packed. Our waitress's was fantastic and able to describe all the dishes in detail and was meticulous about the cooking of our fish. We had dim sum to start which was lovely except the tempura prawns...

My husband had arranged for a special dinner on the first night of our trip to Cape Town. The restaurant was packed and I was very grateful that he had made reservations. We were given an incredible table and the food was incredible. It was been a few years but I have NEVER forgotten the date and I hope to... More

I only go to Beluga for their three-course menu. Starters, mains and dessert are all delicious and never disappoints. Try calling in advance to book a table from Fri to Saturdays, week days it's fine to walk-in. Great value for money, fine dining at its best. I love the duck liver pate starter, chicken curry mains and creme brule dessert.... More

Beluga offers great seasonal set menus throughout the year. It is usually a 2-course (lunch) 3-course (dinner) deal where they choose the best meals from their 'a la carte' menu, make them a bit smaller and reduce the price. You leave feeling completely stuffed but in a way that makes you feel good about the choices you make in your... More

We passed by and decided to pop in for lunch in the sunny courtyard area. Wow what a treat, we tried the lunch special of two courses for 140 rand and had one of the best meals I've ever had. Service and wine was also great. We loved it so much we returned for dinner on our last night (of... More

We made a reservation via email and received confirmation of our request for a romantic table for our 1 year anniversary celebration dinner. On arrival, there was no sign of our dinner booking, nor our request for a romantic table for two. We had a choice of any table that was vacant, we obviously did not feel special and when... More
