I had been told by so many to visit this place..maybe the hype was what made it a slight dissapointment......or possibly the awful cocktails. I say awful but they certainly improved when we sent them back to have some alcohol included. I had a Long Island ice tea which tasted almost entirely, well actually just entirely, of coke and no...

I first visited Blues over 20 years ago when I was a student at UCT - last year I visited again - blown away with great food, service and location. Blues undoubtedly serves the best calamari I have ever tasted and I've eaten a lot of calamari - 2 years in a row, consistent great food.

I went to BLUES today for an early dinner. I sat on the balcony seat. Sunset from there was amazing with nice White fresh fish and sex on the beach. Also, vegetable on the plate of fish was quite fresh. When I come back to Cape town, I want to have dinner there again.

A beautiful restaurant in a great location with amazing views. Staff were incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful. Party of 5, we had starters and mains, their Springbok carpaccio was delicious. All had fish for mains, yellowfin tuna was lovely and the kingklip very tasty as well. On the expensive side, but all in all a good meal, although not wow.

I had been to this restaurant years ago and decided to try it again, just for the views alone it was on our list of places to eat. Lovely friendly service and wonderful seafood delivered with a smile again. We will be back. Calamari very good

We have enjoyed great meals whilst holiday in the Cape and particularly great Fillet Steaks. Tonight's at Blues even surpassed that of the Hussars at Camps Bay and Burgundy at Hermanus. Add to that location and great service.

Blues Restaurant is one of the places you want to check out when in Camps Bay. Located on the first floor of the little mall you get amazing views of Camps Bay beach and of the sunset. They do offer inside and outside seating - but outside you also have nesting pigeons. Great staff and really nice food and wines.... More
