I am allergic to both seafood and fish and still managed to have a wonderful meal here! There is a varied meat menu and the Resturant had no problems with making sure my allergies were catered for! I had venison and my husband had the line fish of the day, both of which we enjoyed immensely. The view is fantastic... More

I had dinner there. Very good sea food dish with excellent wine. The Blues has a very scenic view. Service was attentive yet the manager sat at the bar playing with his cell phone which was off-putting. I should say I was the only person in the restaurant. I had heard that this was an excellent restaurant but I will... More

The restaurant is super beautiful, in front of the beach. Perfect for having lunch on a sunny day, on the balcony.

We stopped there for dinner on our last night in Capetown and man was it worth it. The atmosphere there is definitely a romantic and charming one, not a place to talk really loud and be obnoxious. We had a part of 8 people and you can tell that the locals were not pleased by our presence. Not that were... More

Food totally overpriced, and unappetising. My chicken roulade was dry and the spicy veg did not complement it at all. At night time there is no view (in case this was why everything was so expensive). To top it all, the toilet paper in the Ladies was so cheap and thin, it could possibly be a health hazard. Ridiculous prices... More

We are local and know many of the restaurants around the Peninsula's Atlantic Coast, especially those specializing in fish dishes. Last night was our first experience of Blues and based on our experience, our last. We were a party of 3 and 2 of the dishes served were not fresh. In one case the oil was rancid. Blues is priced...
