Lots to choose from and both our meals were excellent, fully justifying the popularity of this restaurant. The staff were really friendly and the manager even gave us a lift back to our guest house afterwards to save us waiting for a taxi. Great customer service!

My wife and I had been recommended to this restaurant but were disappointed in the extreme. We are not sushi fans and we were given the impression that those favouring tradition seafood were inferior. In fairness, the fish was good but that was where any favourable comment ends. The service was totally amateur and, in fact, way below that at... More

Ate at Blue Waters in February. What an excellent choice on the menu, especially if you like fish. Extensive Shushi menu and very reasonable prices. Good size portions and efficient service. Very enjoyable

I visited this restaurant for the first time since they moved to the new location, almost twenty years later.We were a large group and booked a private room. The service was excellent and the food was great. I certainly wont wait another twenty years before i return.

Having become quite a recent connoisseur of sushi, I envy the people of Somerset West having such a marvellous sushi restaurant in town. The service is friendly and prompt, the food, mainly prepared in front of you is top class. Take your own wine at a small corkage fee, or buy in house. Wish I lived closer!

My daughter and I went here for lunch over the weekend and would definitely recommend it. We ordered sushi for starters, which was excellent. The fish tasted great and it was cut very generously. We shared a seafood platter for mains which was prepared really well. I also liked the proportions on the platter, not too much chips etc. Service... More
