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.

Don't trust this place!!! When we paid our bill the waitress snatched up my card and then claimed the machine was broken and then disappeared with it. The next day I discovered over 60,000 rand had been withdrawn from my account. The food isn't worth the risk of being scammed. There are so many nice restaurants in Cape Town this... More

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.

So this was a very strange evening. Never experienced something like this before. All due to our waiter. We ordered a bottle of chenin blanc, but he kept pushing the chardonnay. Because that bottle was 200 rand more than the chenin blanc, we stayed with the last one. But it was very hard to convince him. I mean, can I... More

Is Beluga a trendy gem or another fine dining restaurant that lost it's appeal among the less commercial eateries popping up all over Cape Town? Before my last visit to Beluga the 'foodie' culture has only slowly been introduced and the big 'to be seen at' fine dining restaurants was all the rage. Having a Sunday lunch at Beluga after...

Come for the special on sushi! 1/2 priced sushi in the early evening and all day Sunday. Very good service and the food is top quality. All so nice that I came for dinner two days in a row. The beignets were a bit heavy but the creme brûlée was just right. Try the Devil's Peak beers for tasty local... More

My second visit, two years after my first one. And I loved it yet again. Great food, great atmosphere and reasonably priced. Will definitely return on my next trip to Cape Town.
