No visit to the Cape is complete without a visit to Camps Bay, and it's stunning views - they make movies here you know! Where to eat? At Blues - the iconic restaurant of the Bay with stunning views and of course stunning food. I have' snobby' friends who "Fly to Rome for a pizza Darling" - I am not... More

Went initially on the recommendation of family to have a cocktail - situated right in the middle of the Camps Bay Area - upstairs so good view of beach and surrounding mountains - good choice of wines and cocktails - friendly service and reasonable value for money. Decided to stay for dinner and we shared a lovely seafood platter and... More

This restaurant is right on the front at Camps Bay. Busy atmosphere, great fine food and reasonable prices as usual for SA. Menu varied

I have never really had a bad meals here. The restaurant seems to keep the standards up regardless of how busy they get, something that really plagues Cape Town during peak times

We came here last year and this year it did not disappoint again. Excellent service. Food fantastic, fresh fish done with a tasty twist. There is meat available on the menu. But as the restaurant is right on the beach front we went for fish. Waitress knowledgeable about the menu and wine. A trip to Camps bay wouldn't be the... More

We had our first evenings meal in this restaurant and enjoyed it. It would not be our top choice in Camps Bay, but the food and service was fine. It would be nicest now knowing the restaurant if you could get a table by the windows overlooking the beach and sea.

We popped into Blues for drinks only - given it was 29th December, the place was packed so we had to sit at the bar, which was fine. The service from the bar man was brilliant. My wine glass was never empty, he made awesome cocktails too.

The food at this place is very nice and they serve a great variety of seafood. During our visit this place was very busy making it noisy and a bit hectic. The service was good though. The restaurant has a very nice view of the beach.

We booked a table for 9pm, we arrived at 8.55pm, didn't sit down until 9.45pm, they had overbooked and were struggling to get through all the covers. Two couples before us had the same problem and same reason. The food was good and very well presented, but due to our late start we felt rushed to finish as the staff... More
