5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went here with my family as I had great memories of great sea food and great wine when I last visited Cape Town in 1991!! I wasn't disappointed as the food and service were fantastic and very good value. Will have to come back again in 2041!!!

Visited as a family of five on our last night of ten in Camps Bay. An enjoyable evening but something wasn't quite as satisfying as other places. I think it was the fact the service was maybe a little too discreet. The restaurant is focuses on seafood and I found the house of starters limited. However a good restaurant and... More

My friends and I had a dinner party in blues and what can I say it was one of the best dining experiences I've had. Seafood was amazing and very fresh, the wine list is superb and the staff were all very friendly and polite, everyone left very full and extremely happy. Great restaurant

Visited tonight 13.8.16 for dinner and had a wonderful meal. Toward the pricier end of what we've eaten on this trip but well worth it. Frank our waiter was charming and helpful and the food delicious. Would recommend!

Trading on its past reputation but now expensive for average quality and service. Even the decor feels like a sterile cafe lacking any ambience. One to avoid.

Blues has been an institution on Camps Bay for decades. On a recent visit, however, I found that the whole place was, well . . . just tired. Same old, same old. Food was okay, service was okay, ambience was okay. View is always great, But perhaps it is time for establishment to think about a make over as it... More

We had the pleasure of going to Blues again yesterday to enjoy the winter special - what a pleasure to have 2 of the 4 meals "removed" from the bill:) This was a joint birthday celebration for my husband and I and we were not disappointed at all. The service was impeccable and the food was as lovely as always.... More

What a wonderful Sunday lunch. The restaurant was very accommodating, gave us a very good table close to the window for us to enjoy the view. Starters were wonderful and so were our main courses. We requested Crayfish Thermidor (which is not on the menu) and they prepared it for us. Food arrived timely and looked beautifully prepared. The service... More

We visited Blues restaurant after a long day sightseeing. The hotel we were staying at recommended it as I said I loved seafood and I certainly wasn't disappointed. We arrived before six, just in time to see the sunset which was stunning. I ordered the crayfish linguine which was absolutely delicious-would recommend to anyone! The service was excellent-all of the... More
