A great building containing wonderful restaurant/bar. Situated in an old steel foundry with covered courtyard hosting both outdoor and indoor seating. Great menu with modern Italian and seafood cuisines, extensive wine selection available. Really good service and very knowledgeable staff who know menu inside out , with great recommendations for food/ wine pairings. Thoroughly enjoyed experience at very reasonable cost.

We wandered over from our hotel for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the attentive service. We chose a three-course meal from their Summer menu, with the crispy duck main and it was amazing. Our only quibble was the low lighting, which made it difficult to read the menu. Next time --outdoors.

This restaurant was recommended and we can see why - both the variety and quality of food was outstanding. Our service was great and even in a crowded restaurant the ambiance felt right. Would definitely recommend eating here.

I have reviewed this excellent (near) Waterfront restaurant several times over the years and it has been consistently good. This is more of the same. Fewer tourists find Beluga than its former sister restaurant Sevruga, which is actually on the Waterfront. It is popular with CT locals. Situated in an old foundry, with outdoor seating in the old yard as... More

Set in the perfect little square we sat outside having had a drink at the bar waiting for a table. The service was excellent, the staff moving around the umbrellas to keep us in shade. We had the Crispy Chilli Fish and the Tuna both of which were cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and probably our favourite restaurant of the... More

I first visited Beluga in 2010. It was *the* place to be and I was really pleased to get a reservation during my trip to Cape Town. It was a real 'event' meal. The experience was amazing: the service was excellent, the food was outstanding, and the buzz was was intoxicating. Seven years later and Beluga is a shadow of... More

Beluga is one of my favourite restaurants to visit. Their sushi and fish are up there with the very very best. Staff is professional and service is really great. And to top it all, their cocktails are absolutely divine!

Best service. Great atmosphere. One of the best sushi spots in cape town. Suggest making reservations as they are usually fully booked. Pricing above average but worth every cent.

Really nice atmosphere at this place, and impeccable service. Every morsel of food we ordered was incredible. The duck & ginger dumplings are still in my thoughts and dreams! Great sushi....Samurai roll and crunchy tuna roll w/black bean drizzle.
