Went here for a date night. We had a cozy table on the porch. Ordered their Dijon fillet - very yum! Best carrot cake I've had in a long time! Friendly and efficient service.

I visited Bellini's for the first time in around seven or eight years and it was as wonderful as it's always been. The menu is the same: simple, classic and top ingredients. All food beautifully prepared. Staff as always friendly and helpful. Was wonderful to be back in a familiar environment where nothing had been (needlessly) changed.

I truly believe burgers at Bellinis are superb! I also enjoy the rest of the food and great wines, but I love the ambience and easy stay Cool people always around, especially on Saturday.. I like that!

Came here for supper and the food was really good. Had the potato rosti with fillet (R140), pepper fillet (R180) and the chicken schnitzel (R110). Sides are either a huge plate of chips or a huge salad. Short wine list but well priced. The dessert was amazing! had the carrot cake and the chocolate cashew nut cake (R55 each). Restaurant...

The reason most people that eat at Bellinis don't review it is because they eat here 3 times a week. Why? Because the food is great. Simple but delicious. The steak is one of the best in town. Comes drenched in sauce - dijon or pepper - and with a side of chips - for R184 all in! The crumbed... More

We left Johannesburg 15 years ago. At the time we used to go to Bellinis on a frequent basis. It was an inexpensive restaurant with good food, albeit a small menu. Returning 15 years later, nothing much has changed although some of the dishes are pricey. We arrived at about 7:30 pm on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was full... More

The periperi livers which were... More

Every South African knows the best steak shop ... and theirs is always the best, and I have been fortunate to be taken by business friends to 'almost each and everyone' ... but Bellinis is the best. You can't book .. so its always full and deservedly so!

I had lunch with a friend. She had a burger and I had their steak prego roll. My steak was perfect, great quality meat! The salad that came with it was not fresh, the lettuce had brown spots. For dessert, I had the chocolate cashew cake, it was delicious. The place fills up quickly, so make a booking. The service... More

When I was recently in Joburg my friend took me here and it was absolutely wonderful! It's been around forever and definitely the local hangout in this trendy part of Joburg.. What a treat it was! There were three of us and we all ordered something different. Each meal was fantastic and the service couldn't have been better. Super attentive... More
