Store description

This steakhouse has a reputation for stocking prime quality beef. There’s no butchery counter, but they do sell prime cuts of beef cut to your specification. Better still, call ahead and collect. Ask about the sizable six-week matured bone-in rib eye steaks, perfectly marbled rump or flavoursome fillet. The lamb chops are also good.

Ethical shopper tip: They only stock grain-fed Karan beef sourced from Gauteng.

User reviews

  • Nice to see that some people cater for vegetarians even so Belthazar is a meat and fish restaurant. There is even a whole pumpkin with malden salt and honey. The very big “onion blossoms” are like TGI Friday’s in London. Salads are fresh, not to mention the Ministrone Soup.

  • Ever heard of Fred Flinstone ? There is a huge steak called the flinestone cut. It is huge and be warned for 2 people to share. Never ever seen this ever before. Love the variety and different cuts on the menu. All the meat is displayed in a huge cooler

  • The burgers at Belthazar are really good there is a juicy one and a premium with meat and succulent chicken and avo too. The burgers were served on a fresh, rich and soft brioche buttery bun. The Belthazar craft beer on tap is good.

  • We started off our night by having a few cocktails and different wines at this amazing Grill and Wine Bar. So many wines on tap, in fact hundreds! We sat inside even so there were heaters outside and enjoyed great steaks. The T-bone and Chicargo cut were the best although everyone commented that the seafood prawns we had to start were also supurb. We sat sipping noble late harvest wine till very late. No room for desserts.

  • If you are looking in South Africa for game, well Belthazar situated at the V&A Waterfront is the place. They have literally a whole page of lean game. We had the best of both worlds – The Game Kebab. 3 or 4 different varities on a very large kebab served with fries. The wine list is superb

  • You always remember things that stick in your mind. Belthazar makes the most yummy Mac and Cheese. You can have it with your steak or other main dish. This innovative restaurant is special. We also saw a whole big pumpkin (roasted) going out to the table. Try the seafood, it is amazing.

  • Busy place with big menu and large wine list on a big stick, its like reading a journal. There are wine taps, 250 that the barman used to dispense the wine and you can taste too. Great vibe and a professional service, the food is world class. Seafood and steaks, even curry (we did not have). All the meat is maturing in a big fridge with glass.

  • This cozy wine like shop/cellar restaurant is amazing. Never ever seen so many wines. Loved the Riedel glasses, we have a few for special occasions. Steaks were superior, they came around with a display. We shared the Flinstone, a giant rib-eye on the bone. Others had fish and steaks and were equally impressed. We ordered a whole pumpkin with maldon salt and honey to share.

  • I never really eat meat with no basting but during the past few months I have loved eating meat grilled in the fire. The quintessential experience is at Belthazar. I had an Argentinian Rib-eye grilled in olive oil. Mmmm this was the best grilled meat ever. Still enjoyed my thick cut fries.

  • Although it is winter it was quite a warm sunny day and we ate lunch al fresco on the terrace facing Table Mountain. We sipped the full bodied wooded House Chardonnay and shared a Mozambican Seafood Platter. The shellfish were crispy and crunchy and the sauces were delicious.

  • Large variety of everything on the interesting menu. Everything fresh, portions large, wine list long and big. Salads (large variety) crispy and fresh. Taste good, we had Spicy Avocado and Lime Kale Salad and a Giant Onion Blossom and Steak Tartare to start. For mains we had between us Rumps, Sirloin, Rib-eye and a T-bone. They were cooked to perfection with a house basting and served with fries and veg. We shared a cheeseboard as well.

  • Lamb Shank is quite a common dish offered everywhere. At Belthazar you get two in a giant portion done in delicious red wine sauce with mash. The Chicken and Prawn Curry done the Northern Indian way served with bismati rice was excellent. Try the thick chocolate brownie and home made ice-cream. Nice and cosy restaurant on a cold night.

  • The ostrich done with olive oil and roseparate was grilled to perfection and was a nice Leon cut. This went down well after my peri-period chicken livers,they had an amazing flavour and weren't too hot just right. I had no veg but rather a chopped meditterenean salad tossed in a tasty splash

  • We hesitated to taste the curry at a Grill House but had specifically been recommended. We had the Lamb Rogan Josh Curry. Well spiced and meat was like butter. Have not eaten lamb for ages, well done! Cynthia had Beef Ribs and they were superlative. We enjoyed the House Craft Beer.

  • I love Blue Cheese. The Blue Cheese Fillet that is Flambeed with brandy and topped with a creamy, tasty, good quality blue cheese is delicious. The steaks are just as awesome. They mature their own meat in a special humidity controlled fridge. The display of the rest of the restaurant is very professional. Service is TOP class and location is the best.

  • When did you really last have a good steak with traditional South African monkey glad sauce and hand cut chips. Well I had a delicious rump with monkey gland sauce and my wife had a fillet with Bearnaise sauce. If you can make Bearnaise sauce, you’re there! Great wines, VERY posh!

  • Picanha is a delicious cut that has immense flavor and is very tender. Never heard of it, we tried it, loved it and came back for more. The other night we visited, we had the Lamb Shank done in a red wine sauce and was also gastronomic. We even shared a giant Jelly and Custard.

  • Always wondered what cavior was like. see they have the real thing But never ordered! One of the few places u see it on the menu anyway, no cavior! There is nothing like a thick cut tasty matured sirloin with fries and good pepper sauce. The wine selection is really impresive + before u know u have consumed 3 or 4 bigger than normal glasses of wine. The variety is insane + the menu is on a stick like a news paper.

  • I did not expect to initially eat curry at a top steakhouse. We all love curry and had the Lamb Rogan Josh Curry. This was a winner, the lamb melted in my mouth. My partner had grilled Ostrich and it was tender and lean – the baked potato was huge! The wine selection is awesome, 250 by the glass.

  • If you want to eat the real stuff as far as shellfish is concerned go to Belthazar. We had prawns and langoustines caught in Mozambique. They were firm and crunchy served with three sauces and fluffy basmati rice. We shared a yummy Ferrero Rocher dessert with brownies, chocolate sauce and custard, was AWESOME!
