You are currently viewing <strong>BELTHAZAR IS BACK… AND BUZZING!</strong>

Belthazar, the celebrated ‘Theatre of Fine Food and Wine’ at the V&A Waterfront, is BUZZING since it re-opened on 1st November 2022.   Loyal Belthazar fans from way back and new patrons are basking in Belthazar’s return, savouring the meat and seafood extravaganza, the largest wine-by-the-glass bar in the world and panoramic views of the Waterfront and Table Mountain. 

“We opened Belthazar 20 years ago, and over time it became one of Cape Town’s leading restaurants, collecting many prestigious awards along the way, including Best Steakhouse in South Africa, Best Seafood Restaurant in Cape Town, and Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence for our wine list. So it was with heavy hearts that we were forced to suspend trading. Re-opening after 2 years has had its obvious challenges; however, it has been immensely uplifting to observe the bustling crowds enjoying the Waterfront once again. To see Belthazar buzzing with happy customers and witnessing our team doing what they do best – that’s what every restaurateur desires. And complimentary feedback from our customers is the proverbial cherry on the top,” says co-owner Ian Halfon.

Ian Halfon concludes, “We re-opened Belthazar with a ‘Spotlight on Local and Value’, offering a wider selection of cuts of steak to provide a broader range of affordability options, with a focus on local less expensive seafood and a bigger selection of well-priced own label house wines to accommodate all palates and pockets. We want Belthazar to be the locals’ first choice when considering a grill.
