My wife and I had a wonderful evening here during our stay in Camps Bay. The view from upstairs was great, especially at sunset. Really enjoyed the choice of local wines they had too to accompany our meal. Bellies full we left very happy.

Blues was always one of the better restaurants in Camps Bay. Fresh line fish, a selection of game and beef dishes that would bring one back again and again. More recently however the style of cooking has taken on a more modern look and flavour, the portions can be ridiculously small considering the cost. I have had a great meal... More

My family and I ate here mid February, I was retuning 15 years after I came the last time. The restaurant is smaller nowadays from 15 years ago and renamed Blues Beach House. Same great food and service. It's not the cheapest place to eat, but the food and the views are great

I would not recommend this restaurant. The food was okay but there are better options in Camps Bay. The service was dreadful. So disorganised and it made the meal feel so rushed and over priced. We spent two weeks in South Africa and both agreed this was our worst meal out.

All my South African friends were raving about this seafood restaurant in the middle of the Camps Bay waterfront. Were they right? It's pretty good alright but it's not a "wow". Very nice interior though with nice view over the bay.

We ate here twice in Jan/Feb. 2017 - having first visited (the twice-as-large) restaurant in the late-1990s. It still is well run, very popular wth great views over the beach and out to sea, especially at sunset time. Booking is essential. One new "feature" is the presence outside the restaurant across the road on some nights of an extremely noisy... More

I had such a lovely afternoon on the balcony with a bottle of great wine and some light food. Loved the view and although the wine was great value its was also brilliant quality.

This restaurant is up there in my top ten. The food was incredible, the staff were wonderful and the views were gorgeous. I can not say anything that would of made it better. The food is not expensive at all but presented to such a high standard. My favourite restaurant!
