Description: Bloo Bistro is a Bohemian Wonderland of Color even when preparing one of our meals. We call Bloo Bistro a World Cafe Bar because the owners are both well traveled and wanted to present a Bistro/Lounge/Entertainment Venue, which represents many cultures in the decor. Paul Zeman and Debby Sani have both used creativity to it's fullest which has resulted in a dining space which entertains the eyes and assaults the senses in a mystical yet fun way. The entertainment is varied and always of a superior artistry standard...The food is delicious and interesting selection yet affordable.

Visited over the busy festive season - only place where we managed to secure a table.
The decoration was jaw dropping - something out of a bad dream meets Indiana Jones and the temple of doom.
The music was overtly loud - trance/ dance music.

Then the food... hot, december weather and Natal Curry and Eggplant bake does not go together.
Also, there was a surprising lack of fresh local ingredients.

We left disappointed but it might be worth going back for lunch - perhaps not really the best place for dinner and the regulars seems to like it.

The place just changes ýour perceptions on life. As you walk in you can feel love and home, so much hard work and dedication has visibly been put into this pLace. A real experience not just a dining experience, the owners are there sharing their dream with you , which is Bloo Bistro. The food was world class, succulent Morroccan lamb served with all the trimmings, felt like it melted in my mouth. A taste and sense sensation. Wow!!
