Went to blues for my husbands birthday when we were away. Had heard good things about restaurant and was not disappointed. Everything was delicious and a lovely location. Recommend that you get a table close to the windows to get benefit of view, on the evening we went it was very breezy and we were very happy not to be... More

no problem getting a table - the menu has a variety of fish and meat dishes. The food was very nice and tasty along with a friend and good service. We had wanted to have lunch on the last day but they had a power cut at lunchtime so the kitchen was closed. Probably one of the best views in... More

We stopped off here in the Red Bus tour (recommend) for lunch. 6 oysters, bottle of wine, seafood pasta and seafood misto. All well cooked and very ample portions. We agreed that next time we'd share one main! Very enjoyable and 10%off with the Red Bus ticket.

We had a young waiter who was very new at his job. He should however have had a coach working with him. Our food was good and tasty. It does feel as though this place is no longer as professional as it should be or its prior reputation. We went for the view and the safe meal options. I did... More

I have been to many restaurants in and around Cape Town but none can compete with the location and food you get at Blues in Camps Bay! Nothing like a good glass of wine watching the sunset. The service is always great, very friendly and competent staff and the menu never disappoints. Definitely a MUST see when in Cape Town... More

We dined here during the very busy New Years period. Service was fine, considering the volume of diners. Very impressed with food quality and menu. Would dine here again...maybe when not so busy,

there aren't many places where one can watch the sunset and be spoilt. The service was great but the food a bit disappointing and you pay for the view. I remember when Blues was "THE" place to eat but today the competition has caught up and even surpassed it. The Ceasar salad was very nice and almost a meal in... More
