Location and contact

Bel Punto is an Italian fine dining restaurant that has been nestled in the heart of the North Coast town of Umdloti since 2004. Opening out on an expansive deck overlooking the Indian Ocean, a day or evening at Bel Punto can be rated amongst the most exceptional dining experiences in South Africa today. Part of the experience is the ever-present chance of sighting a pod of dolphins playing in the crisp surf and sunset drinks at Bel Punto are not to be missed. We specialize in Italian Food, best quality shellfish, exceptional grills and home made pastas and pizzas.
