Considering we visited on a very busy Saturday night, we were impressed with both the service and quality of the food and drink. Some restaurants seem unable to cope when they are full to the brim, however, Belthazar coped very well. We were served in...More

This is possibly the best restaurant on the V&A waterfront. It's worth a visit just to read the wine list-apparently it has the largest number of wines by the glass in the world! Food was succulent with excellent customer service. Will be coming back here...More

Really good food. Steaks very well prepared. Serve what you ask for - steak was perfect. Burger was also great. Also give good advice. Dessert is delicious - not to sweet at all like at most places

But nothing exceptional. This place was recommended as great food. There’s certainly plenty of it. The portions are HUGE. But that’s about all I can say. I’m not confident that the quality is anything of note and the service is very slow. Pity really because...More

Supposed to be the best steak on the Waterfront. While I cannot compare it to other Cape Town steakhouses, the steaks themselves were not particularly impressive. Medium is clearly interpreted as something closer to medium well and the steaks had no trace of this wonderful...More

Once a year I'm in Cape Town and I have my typical procedure: Belthazar - Kudu and "alles verloren" cabernet sauvignon. Yes it's touristy, yes it gets crowded. Still the food and the service are good.
