Chef's Anouchka Horn and Neil Swart offer a seasonal tasting menu for lunch and dinner in their 20 seater restaurant. This is a nose to tail eatery, using sustainably farmed animals and local seasonal ingredients. There are no menu options or set amount of courses. All you do is show up and trust them to satisfy with their seasonal fair. The 20 seats make for a very personal dining experience, as they do everything from cooking the food to pouring the wine. Belly of the beast works on online reservations only. They do cater for some allergies and dietary restrictions by prior request.

    This is not the first time that we have eaten here, and again this time did not disappoint. Even our 12 and 14 year olds ate everything on the plate.

    Meals of this caliber would be unaffordable in other culinary cities of the world. How lucky we are to have the magical Belly of the Beast right on our doorstep!

    Thank you for the best night of 2020! We enjoyed every single aspect of our evening. The food was sensational - we do fine dining experiences quite often and this one was the best we have had. Thank you for making it feel like a normal evening in all this craziness right now. We will definitely be back!

    Amazing food, incredible service, and overall a great experience. Very thorough precautions taken, given the current level of lockdown. Would highly recommend the restaurant and the experience.
