The largest "wine by the glass" wine bar in the world is now situated in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. In the rich ambience of a wharf warehouse, Belthazar offers a speciality wine bar and world-class eatery at a prime location with spectacular views of Table Bay. A totally new experience in wining and dining, Belthazar also brings the exciting concept of "shoppertainment" to South Africa. Displayed in cabinets are glittering Riedel glassware, gift-packs and crystal duck decanters, wine aprons and accessories, stainless steel knives for the home gourmet chef, biltong knives and Belthazar house sauces.
Belthazar only uses the finest ingredients. Specialising in the finest seafood and meats, Mozambican shellfish, South African line fish and aged grain-fed South African Karan beef, all export-quality.
House specialities tempt diners with an "onion blossom", fresh west coast oysters, flame-grilled steaks and kebabs, Karoo lamb chops, a luxury lamb burger and chocolate and chilli beef medallions.
Named after Belshazzar, the King of Babylon, Belthazar serves up to 250 of the finest wines by the glass. It has a dream selection from over a 600 of the Cape's finest cellars, featuring hundreds of fine wines, auction wines and rare vintages displayed in the specially designed vinoteque. The Belthazar team devised the first wine-list in the country that illustrates vintage ratings, critic’s ratings, style indicators and wine/food matches.
