I always love to go to Blues, the food is good, it is a bit expensive but has a wonderful beach vibe. Fabulous views.

Had a wonderful dinner here as our last meal while on holidays in Cape Town. Definitely recommend the seafood! The service is great, the meals come out quickly and are delicious. I particularly recommend the west coast mussels and crayfish linguine.

The location is superb and this was a windy night so the views of the beach were fantastic. Buzzy atmosphere. My fillet steak was delicious and perfectly cooked. My partner's seafood linguine came in a large lump and was light on seafood. Local advice was to stick to standard dishes e.g. Steak, fish.

This was our second trip to Blues restaurant (first back in 2012). Again, we had the seafood platter and again, it did not disappoint. Views out over Camps Bay are pretty special, especially at sunset. Would recommend. Clare The Not So Impulsive Traveller

We have been several years ago and again enjoyed our evening. Having a table with the stunning sea view makes your evening. The fish is always excellent.

Popped in at 5, reserved a table for 5.30 for 2. At 5.30 there was a cashier who said "wait here", and about 4 or 5 waiter staff all just mooning around at this slack time instead of seating the customers in the nearly-empty restaurant. After 5 or 6 minutes we were shown to a table. Rocket and avocado salad... More

The food at this place is average. The location is perfect, but a lot of noise and the meals are average. I won't recommend it.

There is a front row, in which you sit outside and can enjoy the view. The food is served quite fast. It looks delicious but it is only good. In terms of price effort one could expect more. Almost European prices!!!

We sent all 3 fish dishes back - Kingclip - dry - totally lacking in flavour. Of the 6 of us who dined there only one person enjoyed their meal. Views were great but would not recommend the food.
