“Best value restaurant in Camps Bay”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Food and value so good, we went there two consecutive nights! We had fish dishes which were excellent. But also good choice of non-fish meals. Wine not surprisingly for this area, was also excellent value. So we had a really good meal with wine for a very reasonable price.

“It just gets better!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

No visit to Camps Bay would be complete without dinner at Ocean Blue, our favourite for the past 13 years. By coincidence our next door neighbours from Dorset were also on vacation in Newlands so they joined us at our reserved table (It's a good idea to make a reservation as this is a very popular restaurant)

Friendly, prompt service & great seafood continue to be the hallmark of Ocean Blue. My favourite baby kingklip was absolutely delicious. Peter reckons that it was the best fish he has ever eaten. As ever, there was no corkage charge for our bottle of Thelema merlot.

We'll be back next year.

“A surprise find”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

So we were walking along the strip and all the restaurants were full and the only one with a table was Ocean Blue. Our expectations were not great but we were pleasantly surprised. The fish of the day, John Dory, was expertly cooked and served with yummy fries and vegetables, the service fine and friendly and desert of creme caramel superb. Together with delicious wine and good prices so as one other reviewer put it....what is there not to like? I returned the next day for the Baby Kingklip...superb.

“Charming place with a sea view”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Considering it's excellent location, one is surprised at the reasonable pricing of their very good quality food. There are always specials on everything from their breakfasts to cocktails. Worth a visit or two for sure!

“fun low key atmosphere, great food”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

My favourite restaurant in Camps Bay, it is not pretentious, got a really good relaxed atmosphere and serves delicious food promptly. All Cape Town restaurants are good value and this certainly is, when they have it their lobster thermidor is amazing!
