I've been to Beluga a number of times since it opened and enjoyed it each time: good food and service whilst sitting amongst the Beautiful People of Cape Town. It's pricey, though, so it's always been more of a special occasion place for me. But ... I'd forgotten about their early evening half-price cocktails, sushi and dim sum special. (I'm... More

This restaurant was always our go to place when in Cape Town. The food on this occasion was definitely the worst food we experienced during our long holiday in South Africa. My starter course of butterfly prawns was seriously over cooked these were returned and taken off our bill, my wife had Angel fish fillets which were over cooked and... More

Restaurant is nice, fresh and well decorated. Long international menu. The oysters were very fresh and savoury. The kingklip a bit too done. Vegs were ok "al dente". Nice choice of deserts. The service was slow altough kind

We opted for al a carte menu. Beef ribs with chips. The ribs were deboned rather a mean amount ( 6 tiny ) and the chips were matchstick thin. Nothing else.R187 pp. But what got me was Durbanville Hills (normally R 49.95 a bottle at bottle store) was offered at R80 Per glass for white and R88 per glass for... More

We had diner at Beluga. But,we felt very confused... China meets Italy meets Japan meets USA. Dim sum were okay, but not crispy. Weird taste combinations in the dim sums. Sushi with mayonaise? Outdoor seating, however, is nice.

We had just got off of a long flight, and the Victoria Alfred Protea Hotel staff highly recommended us to try Beluga. The menu was very extensive and it's definitely the place to go to if you don't know what you feel like having. The floor manager, Evidence, was so nice and very accommodating. Our waitress, Jackie, was the absolute... More

Found this by accident- it is a taxi ride away from anywhere. Fantastic place, great ambiance and the most attentive staff ever. Menu really diverse, would be very very surprised if you couldn't find anything to love on this menu. It's a real treat evening but feel that they make you feel this way even if it wasn't- will definitely... More
