Description: Bloo Bistro is a Bohemian Wonderland of Color even when preparing one of our meals. We call Bloo Bistro a World Cafe Bar because the owners are both well traveled and wanted to present a Bistro/Lounge/Entertainment Venue, which represents many cultures in the decor. Paul Zeman and Debby Sani have both used creativity to it's fullest which has resulted in a dining space which entertains the eyes and assaults the senses in a mystical yet fun way. The entertainment is varied and always of a superior artistry standard...The food is delicious and interesting selection yet affordable.

“Step into Magic”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

What a magical gem! The ambiance and positive vibe of this establishment is just amazing! Thanks for the personal attention from hosts Debbie and Paul, you made us all feel so welcome! Your obvious love and attention to detail shows in the carefully selected menu, the decor (mind blowing!) and in the fun,
natural rapport you have with your patrons. We will definitely see you again!

“A magical dining experience!”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

So much love and attention has gone into this adorable and magical gem of Knysna. The owners make such an effort to make your evening fun and enjoyable, describing the dishes with obvious passion and care, and providing an unbeatable relaxing and homey atmosphere. Then there's the decoration......WOW! A wonderland of colourful saries and lamps, delightfully inhabited nooks and crannies, and a plethora of wonderful comfy seating. I loved the sparkly duet ladies toilet, perfect for that girly gossip while attending to other business!
The food is thoughtfully created and delicious, and the portion sizes not over-whelming. I had the Durban curry with a beautiful selection of tasty sambals and amazingly tender lamb- yum!
I went to Bloo on the last night in Knysna and wish I had discovered it earlier, definitely the best spot for miles around, cant wait to go back!

“Wacky but wonderful!”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

Entering Bloo Bistro is like falling down a rabbit hole into another world. It's an experience unlike any other that challenges your perceptions of what a restaurant should be. The hosts are as warm and fun as the wacky decor. The menu is small but well chosen and prepared. That said don't expect a typical experience. It's more like an episode of come dine with me! The night we were there was very hot and we struggled a bit with the lack of fresh air. Still we had an unforgettable fun evening!
