I'm not even joking. This is literally my favourite place. There is always something different about an owner-run restaurant, and this is reflected in Beleza. Every dish reflects the Portuguese-Italian influence of the owners, with passion and authenticity. Being a typical Capetonian Coffee Critic, I have high standards with coffee, and Beleza coffee meets these. And so does the Wine... More

We have eaten here on numerous occasions. The food is outstanding every time. My absolute favorite meal is the beef filler medallions. The owners are epic.

We ate here 3 times, the food is delicious. Our children loved the pizzas, maybe the best pizzas ever. The steaks and seafood dishes are delicious. We also went for breakfast as guests of the hotel and the breakfast is very good. We will be back. The owners are hands on and very helpful.

Beleza is famous in town for the bad service and fairly priced breakfast - Even though the bad attitude, we often venture there for for the location, which is spot on. However, on Sunday we received the worst service, coupled with the worst food we ever received. Upon inquiring whether the eggs were poached or boiled (they were extremely hard),... More

Not all the restaurants are open on a Sunday evening in this area so it was a positive beginning. The food - I had a spicy seafood dish - was acceptable; not great, but not bad at all. I also enjoyed a glass of wine; slightly expensive but not on par with the usual Cape Town gouging of the pocketbook.... More

Lovely attentive hostess and a great varied menu. I had eggs benedict and was disappointing as too much mustard in the sauce. Everyone else loved their food ... great vibe and would definitely return

Our guesthouse was undergoing renovations so we had breakfast here on three occasions. The breakfasts were stunning with very good options. We returned twice for dinner and this was even better. The stand out dinners were the ostrich fillet and the seafood curry. The staff were great and the owner gave us some great advice about where to go and... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner at this Portuguese/Italian restaurant in the Tamboerskloof district. The waitress was charming, our meals arrived promptly, my glass of wine was huge, and our dinner - a Portuguese cataplana, shared between two people, containing king prawns, mussels, calamari, chicken, chorizo and sliced potato - was absolutely wonderful.

Enjoyable evening at Beleza. Friendly welcome and food and drinks, came out timeously. Uncertain about how I feel about the chef deciding on the "doneness" of my steak. Food a tad under-seasoned. Would like to visit the antique clothes store one day.

Thank Leigh - Anne K
