“Just an amazing bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We visited In Food Blue for the first time after some good experiences with the In Food in Central J'Bay.
Greeted from a friendly waiter we were seated with nice views over the water.
Visited the "wine-cellar" with a good selection of reasonable wines.
The menue reflects a good choice of bistro style food and we opted for a starter and main-course which made us happy. Also the espresso was excellent.
All over a good recommandation for a relaxed dining experience in Jeffreys Bay!

“Food to wipe away your BLUs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

We were preparing to entertain guests last night - they had forgotten about our invite - Fortunately we found out before we had cooked the food. To compensate for their mistake, they invited us to join their party at In Food Blu. As always this was a great experience. Very good food - kind of half way towards 'fine dining' - Good menu - pleasant presentation - friendly service - pleasant surroundings. Tends to be a little noisy due to lack of sound deadening materials. Please get that mirror replaced in the gents toilet - its been missing for months!

“We always come back to J-Bay just because of this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Really good food, we travel sometimes to J-Bay, just because of this place. The service is good, the menu has enough to offer for vegetarians and the prices are fine. I don't think that there is much more to say about this. Just try and enjoy.

“Show Stopper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

From the moment we arrived at this restaurant I knew we were in for a treat. Beautifully decorated, it is in an idyllic location over looking the canals.
To start we shared the Asian style squid. Please do yourself a favor and order this immediately. It was the best squid I have ever had in my life.
For main we had the eye fillet and my partner had the salmon which was the special of the night.
I have never had a better steak in my life - it was cooked to absolute perfection and simply melted in my mouth.
The salmon was also perfectly cooked and the sides of baked vegetables were the perfect accompaniment.
We were simply too full for dessert - the portions were extremely generous.
The wait staff were friendly and attentive making this one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in a really long time

“Amazing place to spend time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Dinner with old friends was made extra special by being at In Food Blu, the overall menu was full of fresh new food combinations as well as classic dishes, took a while to choose, but in the amazing setting of the marina who wants to rush. The chocolate fondant dessert was well, perfect. The staff were friendly and very helpful, Duncan the manager helped choose just the right wine for the meal and didn’t just recommend a top priced wine.

I had not been to Jeffery Bay for a few years and finding In Food deli and coffee society in the town itself made my week there special, but the gem that is In Food Blu made it extra special.

Went back a few days later for wine and oysters oh boy !
