Food: Italian, Portuguese
Favourite dishes: Fillet Medallions com Molho De Pimenta
Funny how the best steak I have ever eaten is not at a steakhouse but at this quaint, little place in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town!
Beleza is relaxed and chilled spot as you watched the traffic and people through the open windows during the day and by night it is a perfect spot for a romantic date where the fairy-light lights up in the restaurant.
After getting hooked on their awesome fillet with Jalapeno feta sauce (called Fillet Medallions com Molho De Pimenta). The meat just melts in the mouth and the spicy creamy sauce was out of this world. I have visited this beautiful place three times whenever I am in Cape Town and their food is consistently good. I have tried the fillet with red wine sauce, Fillet Medallions com Vinho Tinto, and tasted divine as well. The fillet steaks are on their dinner menu, however they do serve during lunch too.
For lunch I would definitely recommend the beef prego and the chilli-popper burger, the meat is tender and juicy. The potatoes wedges on the side are delicious as well!
Even Beleza is located in the prime spot on Kloof Nek street in Cape Town, the restaurant service is generally slow but friendly. I guess in a positive way, the restaurant is trying to provide the patrons a relaxed and lazy ambiance so that everyone can enjoy the food.
Good pricing for the amount and the quality of food you get. Winelist is simple but reasonably priced as well. (Plus free unlimited wi-fi). Definitely a good place to pop by.
