I wish we came to this restaurant earlier in our stay because we would've gone back as many times as possible! It was the BEST SUSHI I have ever had! Definitely a must!

Dined in the courtyard of the former foundry. Hip and enjoyable place with a very mixed audience. Food is good, service is friendly (although our waitress was somewhat slow). Certainly recommend for a next visit when in Capetown

When ever I travel to Cape Town I always visit this restaurant and my friends who take me there are real regulars - they have been going there ever since it opened. I cannot believe that a restaurant of this supposed Caliber does not have wifi - for a foreign visitor this is essential and in some cases for locals... More

I came with my company to this wonderful restaurant. You can sit on the patio but it is necessary to call before for a reservation. The food is very delicious and the staff very helpful. We were sitting there for hours. Also inside it is a great atmosphere. Will come back definitely.

To sit under the umbrellas on a sunny day at tables with crisp white linen and gleaming glasses is just great. We had there 2 course summer menu special which is very good value for R 195. The starters were excellent and the sushi is always fantastic. The only negative was the crispy duck which was over cooked and served... More

We were excited to see where the meal took us after walking in and liking the vibe. The food had no flavor and the sushi was some of the worst we've ever had (and we've had A LOT of sushi). Far better options for a meal in Cape Town.

I came to celebrate my birthday and was shocked at the service. As always, drinks took forever and orders arrived wrong. Hope there will be some improvement soon.

Our first day in Cape Town we chosen Beluga after read coments. Nice place but the food wasn't that we were waiting. Sushi wasn't good but the fish could pass our quality control test. Awful dessert, a ordinary factory ice cream.

Our group had dinner in this restaurant on our last night in Cape Town. I noticed that almost all eating places in the area offer the same menu. I had Beef carpaccio and it was good; Beef ribs which was tender. Chocolate truffle cake was my dessert. The service was quite fast compared to the other restaurants where we dined.
