The food and service was great. Food portions were small though. Steak was delicious and the menu was varied for non vegetarians.

We went there on the spur of the moment, so could not get a table outside. Inside was still nice. The food was good. Surprisingly they did not have any ketchup or tomoto sauce for the French fires and offered a lemon sauce instead. I guess too upscale for ketchup! had a pleasant time.

The ostrich has been suveed according of the manager, which can be done with any meat ,but not with game bird. It had a very light colour and lost completely its taste, as it did not see a grill. Ostrich meat is tender... More

Al la carte and set menus have a great variety and you get really good value for money. i've tried quite a number of mains but I mainly go to Beluga for the dim sum and sushi. They have some really good specials like half-price on sushi and dim sum, and cocktails too :-)

We have positive comments to make about Beluga. Japanese sushi was good. Nice ambiance. We were very happy with our visit and would recommend to people in the area. Cape Town now has so, so, so many Japanese style food menus around during this chapter so one can be discerning. We are not in Tokyo although it sometimes feels as... More

Good value for money.. Three course meal as winter special.. Too much food for me but I don't do dessert and instead order the blood orange mojito.. Carpaccio as starter and petite fillet as main.. A bit dry and served with a chutney.. love pepper sauce! as steak should have a partnership with something.. That's just me. Sometimes a free... More

Beluga was an absolutely stunning surprise. A recommendation from our concierge - the atmosphere warm and stylish. The amazing variety of food mains, dim sum and sushi are absolutely creative and beautifully presented. There were so many choices we have to go back to try more. The value is superb and the service exemplary. Noko our server made superb recommendations... More

Being from Gauteng and loving Beluga we decided to try Beluga in Cape Town. What a disappointment. Noisy and not a very clean restaurant, managers seemed rushed and not interested in customers at all. And food lacked the attention we expected from Beluga. Overall just not a happy experience!
