The food and service are good, but what makes this special is walking through the old farmhouse (now the restaurant) and out in to the garden - an unexpected and lovely view looking to Chapman's Peak and Noordhoek beach in the distance. A great spot for a mid morning cup of tea or coffee and slice of delicious cake. Avoid the weekends if you want to enjoy the view in peace. children can play on the swings and take a visit to Higgledy Piggeldy farm.

We had dinner at the Blue Water Cafe during our stay in Kommetjie. The service was great. The food was lovely. They serve a great lamb curry as well as fish and other types of seafood. It seems to be quite a busy restaurant. However, despite this, they did not seem to compromise on good service.

During the day there are camel rides as well as horse riding facilities within the vicinity for camel rides. There is a bakery and coffee shop close by, which is not part of Blue Water. We didn't like the coffee shop though.

Wonderful restaurant and good food.

Ate a wonderful lunch with my family on a Sunday afternoon. Despite being packed, the team was able to keep up to the high demand, and produced scrumptious food. We tried a range of food- homemade pizza, pasta, salads and envy thing was delicious. Although we were stuffed, could not refuse the desserts. Outside is a playground and picnic tables, but recommended to make a reservation on weekends.

Blue Water Cafe has a great look and feel about it. The old style architecture has been maintained both inside and out. It's has a relaxed, pure feel about it.

The menu is diverse. The foods are fresh and tasty; a feast not only for the taste buds but also for the eyes.

The staff are friendly and professional. With a good knowledge of their menu they are well equipped and more than happy to assist you in making your choice of food -should you need help/persuasion.

The view out front of the mountains is exquisite and there is ample place for the kids to play.

To eat, I recommend the beef lasagne.

We recently stayed in Kommetjie for a month on Wireless Road. Imhoff Farm was 5 minutes away, and I think we probably went there at least 10 times during our stay.

The food was brilliant, the service was generally also great, on the w/e it does get hectic, so you can expect slower service.

Great views, lovely area, very kid friendly good wine selection, and my wife won't be happy unless I also mention how amazing the cakes were!
