We went for lunch and sat upstairs. Extensive wine list and DELICIOUS seafood. We had prawns and tuna and both meals were perfectly cooked and flavoursome. We are foodies and rarely Gish about a meal but this was a terrific lunch. The view, food and venue all exemplary. Daphne was our waitress and she was OUTSTANDING. not too intrusive, highly... More

I went with a group of people on a night when a large party had been booked in. The restaurant, which had been highly recommended, was very accommodating and agreed to take our party of 11. The menu offers a range of choices to suit all appetites. I had the risotto and really enjoyed it. In fact, I couldn't eat... More

First visit to Blues for a family lunch and it was a delight. The cocktails were great, and the food was delicious, and very fresh.There is a very relaxed vibe, wonderful views and staff were great - I would definitely come back next time I visit Cape Town.

This restaurant seems like just another one in the long row of dining places facing the Camps Bay beach. This is as far removed from the truth as this restaurant is located in a special setting, elevated above the sidewalk with special food, above average service and amazing views across the beach and ocean.

We actually went for the amazing sunset views but had an amazing meal as well! We arrived early so that we could get an outside table and were treated to an incredible sunset. The food was outstanding and very fresh. I had the prawns and the only negative thing I can say is that I was left wanting more!!

I had the battered prawns to start that were ok, a little fatty but the prawns were lovely. I then had the crayfish linguine which was divine. Shame I was so full as I didn't have a chance to finish it. Mojito's were also very good.

Everything about this meal was great from the moment we walked through the door having enjoyed the sunset in la belle opposite. Service was amongst the best we'd experienced and starters and mains (mussels, calamari, white fish of the day and sirloin) were excellent, with great sauces. Wine was reasonably priced for quality. Creme brulee desert very good. Only negative... More

One of the most 'up-market' restaurants in Camps Bay but still amazingly good value. We ate fish and seafood that was fresh and delicious accompanied by excellent wines. When a wine we chose was not available we were offered an alternative, more expensive wine at the same price. The staff were friendly and super-efficient. No complaints at all.
