We had a great night here. We used to frequent their Camps bay restuarant which they ran for 22 yrs yrs before relocating. The Friday night we were there they had a live duo playing which added to the experince as we generally like live music.We were impressed with the friendly management and waiters that provided excellent service (with a...

If you want to experience the other side of the bay from Cape Town then you have to visit this restaurant tucked away in Blouberg. There service is very good, and there meals are awesome.

I have visited Bayside Café a few times since their very welcome move to the Blouberg area from Camps Bay about one year ago and every time I go there, I am baffled as to why they are not busier. In my mind they have everything for locals and visitors ... their menu is one of the most extensive I... More

I live on top of Bayside Cafe. Literally. Which makes it an excellent spot for a nice breakfast, a decent lunch or sumptuous dinner. The view is great, the food excellent and the service friendly. The entire place has a nice & friendly vibe to it. The terrace has the best spots - unless it's windy which it can easily... More

Whist in Blouberg we went to this restaurant 3 times and each time had a great meal. The chef who is the owner always came out to see his patrons and nothing was to much trouble. The service was great but could be considered a wee too much but better that than the other way. Fantastic views and price wise... More

We previously visited Bayside in their old location in Camps Bay. The new location is good with super views. The food remains at the same high standard. We wish them all the best in building up the same reputation that they had in Camps Bay. Will be back!!!

The view is outstanding, the menu is extensive and reasonably priced the service is great. As a family of 13 in the area a week we breakfasted, lunched, dined and snacked and they got it right every time, nothing was too much trouble, even the Chef is happy and welcoming. For us older folk the steps are a pain but... More

I loved the Bayside in Camps Bay but, now that they have moved to Blouberg, they have work to do to build it up again. The service was too slow and this caused an uncomfortable feel at our table. When the food arrived it was good though. I wish them all the best in their new location and look forward... More

Simply put don't complain about the service.... Just don't go there.... Waited 15 min for one beer... And decided to send it back had the chef come out and ask what my problem was and insist that I had only been waiting 4 min
