Follow the romantic lamps on the water’s edge at the V&A Waterfront to a terrace with dreamy views of Table Bay and Table Mountain, and to the rich ambience of a wharf warehouse offering a meat and seafood extravaganza and the largest wine-by-the-glass bar in the world.
This is Belthazar, a Theatre of Fine Food and Wine, with a beautiful new all weather terrace enclosure, Awards of Excellence from both TripAdvisor and Wine Spectator, and a stunning new menu.
The Meat Experience at Belthazar
Belthazar’s in-house Master Butcher ensures that the grain-fed Karan beef is hung on the carcass for three days, and then the Fillet, Sirloin, Rump and Rib-Eye are ‘wet-aged’, while the T-Bone, Chicago Cuts, Fillet on the Bone and Sirloin on the Bone are ‘dry-aged’ for a minimum of 28 days. In addition Belthazar serves Australian-Tasmanian superior grass-fed marbled beef air-freighted from Cape Grim in the far north-west corner of Tasmania. Shaped by wild Southern Ocean swells, abundant rainfall and the cleanest air in the world, Cape Grim is the perfect place to grow superior beef. Belthazar’s extensive Game Menu includes Ostrich, Crocodile, Springbok, Kudu, Impala, Wildebeest, Blesbok, Gemsbok and Eland.
Belthazar Seafood Extravaganza
Belthazar imports all its prawns and langoustines from Mozambique and only serves the freshest linefish available. For a real extravaganza, what could get better than Belthazar’s Royal Seafood Platter for Two, including a whole crayfish, two large langoustines, six medium langoustines, two tiger giant prawns, 2 tiger medium prawns, two king prawns and four queen prawns – perfectly prepared and served with lemon butter, garlic butter and per-peri sauce.
The Wine Wonder at Belthazar
The wine experience at Belthazar is second to none with wine, wine everywhere, tempting wine-lovers with the largest wine-by-the-glass bar in the world. The restaurant’s innovative nitrogen-infused wine-by-the-glass bar serves up to 250 of the Cape’s finest wines by the glass, patrons are expertly advised by trained sommeliers on a wine-list of up to 600 fine wines and sought-after rare vintages, and the wines are professionally stored in a designer vinoteque and served in Riedel glassware which enhances the wine of your choice. With a superb wine selection by single varietal, blend and style, the state-of-the-art wine list at Belthazar highlights vintage ratings, critics’ ratings, wine awards and taste indicators.
The wine list is compiled by André Lourens, the very knowledgeable and experienced group beverage manager for the Slick Restaurant Group.
