Perfect spot

Chosen based on the location alone. First sunshine for a few days so we grabbed the opportunity to sit on the deck and watch the world go by. Simple pasta dishes were fine and the service was good

I went here with my girlfriend for her birthday. I have to say that everything was fantastic. Our waiter was so gentle and the food was really good. We ordered two oyster, one seaplatter for two people, one bottle of Souvignon Blanc wine and two chocolate brownies for dessert. The bill was 1200 Rand which is about 92 euro. Everything... More

We were recommended this place for a great view of the sunset and we weren't disappointed. We had a window seat with a great view and got to see one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. The staff were genuinely very helpful and interested in talking to their customers which was lovely! The fish was fantastic and alterations... More

The location is, obviously, still excellent. Our food overall was okay, although half the options on the menu and specials weren't available at 6pm on a Friday night in an almost empty restaurant, and nothing was particularly good value. The chairs are unchanged (the same ones recovered for the umpteenth time in the past 20 years) but the restaurant is... More

The place could not be more well located, in front of Camp's Bay incredible waterfront. It stays at the first floor, so you have an even better view from the top, which I thought made it really special. The ambiance is very charming, with blue and white furniture. A very clean and elegant atmosphere. I choose to pick a table... More

Located on the 2nd floor of the upscale promenade, over the gelato stand. The interior has a cool, modern decor. Glass doors open to balcony seating.

Perched above the beautiful beach at Camps Bay, Blues is renowned for its seafood and great views. We visited a few times during our last holiday and had great food each time we dined. The seafood could not be more fresh. A must visit venue in Cape Town
