You can't fault Bel Punto. The fish is fresh; the wine list is great and the view is spectacular. I love visiting the restaurant whenever I'm in the area.

This just has to be one of SA's best. The atmosphere, the view over the sea, the quality of the fare, the consistency of the offering, the friendliness and knowledge of service staff, the depth of the menu, and of course mama in the kitchen....More

Besides the glorious location overlooking the ocean, this restaurant is amongst the best for sea food. The service was efficient and friendly and the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. Highly recommended.

We went for lunch on our friend's 83rd birthday. The experience could not have been better. The staff are totally professional, the manager was friendly and interacts with the guests. The 80 year young lady in the kitchen only allows perfect meals to be served....More

Great spot. Very popular so to get a table at the window overlooking the sea, you need to book. I enjoyed my food, but my partner's ravioli was too soft.

We went twice to this restaurant. On the deck you hear the ocean and can eat very, very good Italian food, lots of fresh seafood. The service is excellent and the crew so good-humored.

Tasty food, great service, awesome views. We had some moijotos and a light meal. The calamari starter was great, so was the fish cakes and the chicken livers. Definite recommendation and will definitely return..

Description
Bel Punto is an Italian fine dining restaurant that has been nestled in the heart of the North Coast town of Umdloti since 2004.

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.
