We wandered into this restaurant during a recent stay in Camps Bay. It turned out to be a gem with excellent service, "beach chic" customers, and very good seafood. Definitely worth a visit!

Spent a lovely early evening at Blues. Booked early so we could watch the sunset which was amazing. The menu caters for all tastes though it is largely seafood...for kids there is pasta and various burgers etc. I had crayfish which were superb...a lovely bottle of Rustenberg white wine. Service was attentive and fun, with the kids feeling very welcome in a fairly adult environment. The cost was....great value! I think it was £70 including wine, drinks and meals for 5.
Some say Blues has gone down hill recently but I saw nothing to upset me, it compares well with the place we loved 15 years ago.

Nice for a lazy lunch in the sun. Food was good, massive portions though so be warned ! I think this is more a lunch venue than a dinner venue

We tried Blues on a quiet evening. Service and food were good, but not great. Views are wonderful, and a great spot for lunch.

The views are wonderful and the atmosphere was nice on the evening we ate there.

Staff are functional and tick most boxes.

The food was nice and we both enjoyed it but we both felt there was just that "X-FACTOR" missing.Couldnt quite put our finger on it.

We would prob give this place 7 out of 10 and come back next time and see if they have found the X-Factor.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your very diplomatic review on Blues, whilst very much fair i feel that we must have under delivered on this occasion, which i am unhappy and disappointed about from our side.

I know that we do have the capability to "wow" , and certainly do hope that you return and give us a chance to show you what we are all about, hopefully see you soon...

Kind Regards,
