The food and wine were fantastic. Our "ambassador" was attentive, informative of the food, made great recommendations, he basically looked after our every need.

Great 5 star service from Fernando (I believe he cooked everything just for us - jk). The food was very good as well. Highly recommend this place.

Their reputation goes before it and they lived up to it. We enjoyed a great steak meal on our hoenymoon at this restaurant. We were treated like gods from start to finish and ate like them too! I think our eyes were a bit bigger than our bellies as we ordered a 450g fillet and a 1kg rib-eye. It was... More

Balthazar is the largest wine by the glass bar in the world and also boasts amazing steaks which they mature themselves. I had a wonderful waitress, Savanna, who was funny, knowledgeable and very attentive. Definitely one of my favourite places and when the outside opens again I will be back for the incredible view.

Sirloin Steak was very chewy and not very nice, so I got a rather bad piece. The fillet of my boyfriend was great, the sides were great, the wine too, the tiramisu amazing and the service outstanding. A shame my Sirloin was so bad especially for the rather steep prices. Bad luck I guess, would surely try it again.

Dear Julu, I hope that this was riased with the manager, as we would have happily replaced it. Unfortunately, even though we age our meat for a minimum of 28 days, we sometimes get cuts that are tough, but we will replace it no problem at all. We hope to have you join us again soon to give us another... More

Couldn't believe the number of wine choices here. The wine steward was very helpful and helped with recommendations. The food was really good and portions almost too big. Had a slight problem with our meal in that the salad and dinner came all at once. Apparently that is not typically but happened with us. This restaurant is more on the... More

Dear Mstnutt, my apologies for the salad that came with the main, instead of as a starter. I am sure it was just a small oversight, but thank you for the review. We look forward to having you join us again soon. Regards, Andrew More

My husband and I decided to spoil ourselves and go for our favorite meal (steak and red wine) at a real fancy restaurant (one that is listed as one of the top steakhouses in Cape Town). Even though Sasha gave very good service, I feel that Belthazar is a little overrated. I have had MANY steaks in my life and... More

Dear 4x4Hire, my apologies that you feel that we are overrated. Our menu clearly states that all sides or ordered separately so that there can be no confusion. Many generic local restaurants serve their meals like that, however, as "one of the top steakhouses in Cape Town", our offering is based on international standards and quite opposite to your feedback,...
