We had a very good meal at Blues I could certainly recommend the seafood and of course the view if you are lucky to get a table at the window ( would certainly recommend booking) as the sun set is beautiful. The service was excellent.

I dashed in here just as it opened for lunch and nabbed a table at the front of the the terrace. Just as well because in 10 mins the place was full. Stunning views over the beach. Calamari, butternut squash side dish and a glass of very cold white wine followed by a great espresso coffee. My perfect lunch. Highly... More

I have eaten at Blues since its start in the 1990's and my latest visit did not disappoint. They have managed to keep a consistent quality over the years. A safe bet in Camps Bay. Expensive though.

Must book in advance to avoid dissapointment. Very nice. It takes a little while from being seated to starters or main course, but it is all prepared from stratch. The food we had was very nice. Generally prices are what you would expect in London.

Blues is upstairs on the Promenade, with spectacular views. The menu is diverse, as is the wine list, but on the pricey side. However, the food is well prepared and presented, and the service is good. Well worth at least one visit for the ambience. As the name suggests Blues play jazz tracks for background music - very cool. It... More

Visited this restuarant for dinner and was not disappointed. The food and service were good. The service in particular could not be faulted. Great cocktails as well.
