This Camps Bay gem has been around a while and still puts out a vibrant menu that's reflective of the delicious fresh produce found in the area.

The fish and shellfish is fresh and beautifully prepared and the view over Camps Bay is just stunning.

Good Food, great cocktails, decent wine list and fabulous view. This place speaks for itself.

Highly recommended.

Having lived in Camps Bay I visited Blues regularly and was never disappointed. This is still true. I find it hard to understand how anyone could rate this place less than good! All restaurants have problems from time to time but I cannot believe that Blues ever deserved a poor rating. What could have happened? It is also very unfair to rate a restaurant on one visit if the experience is less than desired. I recommend it.

We have been visiting Blues for almost twenty five years and for the setting, service and food it has remained our favorite restaurant in the Cape Town area. Great choice of dishes. Will certainly return on our next visit to the Cape.

Now that the restaurant have gone much smaller the service has improved even further. Not to mention the fresh and tasty Kingklip dish I enjoyed there last week. Presentation was to die for

Food is very good if not excellent. Pricing lower than anticipated. Service leaves a lot to be desired really.
