Blues reopened tonight and the chef wowed us with subtle flavors, colors and textures. The salmon and yellowtail were awesome!

The food was memorable, the service not so much, had to stand up from my table to get waiter attention. Order was incomplete. And they took ages to clear up.

Blues has always been a favourite of mine in Cape Town. This time we went wit a group of 21 people and although we were the only people in the restaurant, the service and food was simply not what it used to be.

Enjoyed the Blues again after a few years. The restaurant is now smaller. We visited on a cold and wet evening and found the restaurant way too cold. Had a great sirloin steak that was really deserving of a five stars rating. Good sized portion, perfectly cooked and with great veggies and sauce. My colleague had the fillet steak and... More

Uninspiring menu ; indifferent ( at worst, arrogant ) staff ! Resting on its laurels... Great location but lacks the necessary heart, soul and authenticity to build a trusted brand.
