“Great view and nice stone oven pizzas”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

The Blue Peter is a fantastic place to see table mountain and Cape Town. A real post card view. Great place to sit down have a drink and watch the sunset and try their stone oven pizzas which are pretty good. The menu is good but don't expect a five star restaurant. What it does have is one of the best views on this planet. A must for at least one sunset.

“Great view”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

I have visited the Blue Peter twice (in 2012 and just recently February 2014). The views here are fantastic, right on the beach - great on a nice day. The food is ok, nothing amazing. Couldn't believe that mid-afternoon all of the ladies toilets had completely run out of toilet paper which in itself is pretty bad, I had to ask 2 people to provide some toilet paper as the first just ignored me!

“Sit & look at the sunset”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Love to sit in the bar & look at the sunset. The food was ok nothing special, but staff & venue great. Gets very busy around sunset so worth getting there early esp at the weekend.

“relax a little !”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

What can one say about The Blue Peter? Relaxed vibe, great pizzas, friendly service and a view to die for. Definitely for the young at heart! Visitors, this pub restaurant is a must to visit.

“Service needs to improve”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Ate as a group with friends based on recommendations, the view from the restaurant for sunset is amazing but that is about as good as it got unfortunately. Service was lacking, in fact it was organised chaos considering the restuarant wasnt even a quarter full. The food order was taken but there was a long wait for the server to come back to take the drinks order. The pizzas came over an hour later, some very burnt with various substitutes to replace toppings that they were out of (without checking if the substitutes were OK as a replacement) - further chaos. The chicken breast salad came with just 3 pieces of chicken in it. Since the food took so long to come out of the kitchen, when it came out wrong people were so hungry that they didnt want to send it back and wait even longer. On the plus side a couple of the pizzas came out of the kitchen perfectly - if only the rest had done so. The management after some heated discussion agreed to remove some of the items off of the bill, even then we paid too much for what was supposed to be a fun family meal.
