We visited four times and had great food with service to match. The menu had sufficient choice and it is on the average price range.on one occasion we unexpected met some friends and in no time at all the tables were merged and our food orders were delivered with ease and friendly smiles from our server. The Serbian manager was... More

We had a nice dinner at this restaurant and the food was good. Again like in some of the other restaurants here, we thought the service could have been a little more efficient and friendlier.

Popped in here as it looked lively and busy. Overall the menu seemed pricey but the pizzas were a good price. They turned out to be very tasty and a good size. the service was friendly and unhurried even though they were busy. A good location to watch the world pass by.

Came here on recommendation. Food was ok, but over cooked prawns and fish. One of the most expensive meals we had on our trip but probably the worst as the food everywhere else excellent!

My husband and I popped in a yesterday for a relaxed lunch at Ocean Blue and it was exactly what we were hoping for - tasty wholesome food, great service and a lovely view of the beach!

We had been recommended by friends to choose Ocean Blue, we weren't disappointed. Good food. I had the giant tiger prawns, my wife the King Klip. Both were really tasty. The servers were efficient and friendly too. Sitting street side you get great beach & street views; but it can great windy!

We came here based on TripAdvisor recommendations and the food was delicious. Service continues to be a let down with having to wave down someone to even get a waiter to order water. The calamari in this area continues to impress me and it was delicious fried and grilled. The personal plates seem the better deal and allowed us to... More

Although the restaurant was busy, the staff were buzzing about servicing customers needs. The lay out could have crammed more in but it was set out to optimise custom but allow space and good atmosphere. We had fish platter for two which was fresh and delicious. Our service by Igor was beyond first class.

The location is great and a lot of Camps Bay restaurants rely on this, Ocean Blue is no different. Food was average at best and for the price you can do a lot better (for example The Cod Father). I had the calamari salad (which said fried strips in the menu but was actually tubes), it was a bit plain.... More

Hi Matthew, I am sorry that you felt your meal was not up to standard. I hope that you notified the manager on the day so that he could sort it out. Feedback like this is rare and generally the contrary so I hope you'll try us again in the near future. Kind regards, Dina More
