We ate here as it was recommended. The food was average and it appears that the restaurant is living on its past reputation but really needs to concentrate on the standard of the food and not who might be pretty enough to sit at the window tables.

Having read other reviews the experience was not what we expected. We hadn't booked in advance which meant we took a table on the balcony and it being a breezy, busy, Friday evening we accepted that it might not be the best table in the house but it was only 6.30pm and the restaurant was still quiet. However with the... More

As I have said on a number of reviews of restaurants in the Cape Town area you are truly spoilt for choice with views, food and value for money to match. Blues did not disappoint on any level and our balcony view over the ocean at Camps Bay made for an excellent lunch setting. The Calimari was exquisite washed down... More

We eat here twice whilst visiting Camps Bay and each time the food was very good. We did not book but would advise in peack times. Service with a smile and a good wine list with lots of lovely food on offer. Definitely worth a try and we will be going back when we visit Camps Bay again. Lovely atmosphere... More

Really is a must if you're visiting Camps Bay and you like your good, especially seafood. We sat on the balcony and witnessed an amazing sunset during dinner. The seafood platter was a feast indeed, and excellent. My partner had the fillet which by all accounts was just as good. Definitely visit again whenever we return.

We revived a post conference tradition by returning down here for drinks as the sun went down (easier in February because of the later sunsets) and a meal. 15 of us had a spectacularly good meal and I am delighted to be able to report that Blues is back to its best. The springbok carpaccio and the seafood linguine were... More
