“Great little Gem”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

this is truly a gem at Imhoff farm, especially on a nice Sunday afternoon. The views of the noordhoek valley are great and all the animals nearby create a farmlike atmosphere. More important, the menu has something for everyone, the pizzas are great and not too badly priced and the rest of the menu is also interesting. I have been here a few times and have never been dissapointed so will definitely return again and again.

“Lovely views, superb food”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This was something special. Excellent food, beautifully served, creative menu and a good wine list. Salads are really large but not overwhelming and steaks juicy and tender. The setting on Imhoffs Farm is lively with views all the way to Noordhoek. Lots if place for the kids to run around and see the animals on the farm.

“Good for a stop-off”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We've been passing the place for years on the road to Kommetjie and last month decided to stop, have some coffee and a look around. Well, it was about time.

Innneresting place, as they say in Boston. It is a sort of farm with all the usual road-side farm stall stuff, very green and basic, but quite relaxing. Nice for a stop-off, but we're not qualified to pronounce on the rest, except the little second-hand bookshop, which was a gem. But to be honest, we didn't notice that the café was actually called the Blue Water. We didn't notice any.

Stop of and refresh the soul for a while, away from the rat-race.

“Wow view and food”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

You can see for miles from the terrace of this venue and the Eggs Benedict was very original. Book in advance. There is a great animal farm yard for the kids right next door for their entertainment.

“A must for families with children”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We visited Blue Water Cafe 4 times during our stay in Kommetjie - and loved it! The view on a clear day is by itself worth a visit, but there is also lots of entertainment and space for the kids, without the noise and chaos of a typical kids venue. Most surprising of all is the quality of the food. We had breakfast and supper here and were pleasantly surprised every time. You have to go!
