What a location! About as close to the sea and and of Hobie beach as you can get in PE with great views of the sea from most tables. This is a very popular spot in PE for groups of all kinds, and the menu seems to suggest they try to cater for all tastes.
The menu is huge, but I've never had anything particularly good on it. The service can be spotty too.
In spite of that, I will go back from time to time because it has such an amazing location.

Perfect for satisfying your hunger and thirst... A quick bit to eat and a little something to wash it down... All choices seemed solid.

I love the setting of Blue Waters Cafe. Drinks and dinner on the deck is a wonderful way to spend a good summer's evening. It can be a little chilly on the deck in winter but inside the restaurant it's nice and cosy. Good food and great friendly service!

I have a lot of confidence in recommending this restaurant - the consistently high standard of service is something which lifts it out of the ordinary, and the views across Algoa Bay are just too beautiful. On a clear day without wind, it is lovely to sit out on the deck and get the salt air tang - maybe that is why the portions of food on offer are so generous!!! My advice to anyone contemplating eating here - come along hungry as there is much to choose from and the helpings are rather daunting in size. I was with a party of seven folk who lunched at Blue Waters last Friday - and of the seven, six of us had to ask for doggy bags, as we just couldn't do justice to the food. We were impressed with the friendly service - no hitches - lots of smiles and jokes - and the restaurant basically was filled to capacity but the staff remained unflustered and in control. What a super meal! And although its not haute cuisine - you really do get good value for money.
