As most of Cape Town's restaurants are not open on Sundays, Beluga is the place to go to finish the weekend. Enjoy the delicious and original sushi (half price on Sundays). Saturdays are nice too, as are undoubtedly weekdays.

A great venue, with a great atmosphere. Known for its sushi and dumplings but we had a beautiful Beef Wellington and the Angry Chicken. This was a delicious curry and was probably one of the best we had ever tasted. Our calamari starter and Lindt chocolate desert were also well worth mentioning as they also were divine.

I've been to Beluga many times and finally I've learned my lesson. I always love the starter and like the main. Next time I'll take either the fantastic Seared Tuna Salad as a main or a second starter (Springbok Carpaccio). And I'll keep bringing my own wine since the wine list is very good but a bit pricey

We go to Beluga's quite often. The dumplings are my absolute favourite !! We have never experienced bad food. The food is always well presented and perfect quality. From sitting down to take aways. We've never been disappointed. The only thing I could suggest on improving is the service. I do think that they are short staffed most of the... More

Famous seafood restaurants offering sushi and dim sum style food with a bar serving a wide range of cocktails, wines and beers. Set in a courtyard off the main road in the De Waterkant area of central Cape Town, the restaurant itself is big with seating inside and outside. We ordered off the sushi / dim sum menu, not many...
