Pretentious is too polite. Such a shame as the setting is lovely and the area is crying out for a nice restaurant.

My wife and I went to the blue feather to experience the food as it looked so beautiful in the brochure. . I had the chicken risotto which was the worst meal I have ever experienced. It was more like a chicken rice mess that I serve to my children. I honestly couldn't finish the meal. My wife had the... More

My husand took me there for my 30th birthday. It was a 5 course meal. The food was definitely not fine dining. Dessert was strawberries and cream with spun sugar. I could do that on my own. Definitely not value for money. Will never go back.

Went there on a Groupon voucher....NEVER AGAIN. Food was beyond disgusting. Well presented but what a shock when you place that 1st spoon into your mouth. Insippid. Bland. Tasteless. A 3 year old could cook better without any training. When disgust was expressed to management, suddenly we became very unimportant. Chef di not even bother to come out. ALL the... More

Summarised story is that we had my wife's birthday at Blue Feather restaurant and the service, food and alcohol wasn't at all what we expected/asked for. We ordered 12 platters(10 normal snack platters and 2 desert), only got 8 food platters and 1 desert platter, none of these platters were what we ordered, the service was no where close to... More

The food is definitely not worth the R250.00 / person they charge from a fixed menu. The food is very oily and the waiters are not trained at all. They don't tell you about the oily food and then you can decide what else to take. We stayed over and it was supposed to be for 2 nights. There was... More

We had lunch on Sunday and the vegetable soup starter and chicken fillet grilled topped with wild mushroom sauce were the only decent dishes from the lot. Those that ordered the Beef Trinchado were confronted with an oily dish with no taste and it came with no bread or roll to help make it palatable. The grilled hake was average,... More

Wow what an unbeliveably bad experience! We made a booking for this saturday 2 months ago, only to get there and find a private function was being hosted. The manager kindly reserved a space for us for the next day, apologising for the inconvenience. However, the service wasnt even the issue, ....the food was more than below average, in fact... More

We were totally disappointed by this restaurant. The food is most definitely not even remotely close to fine dining. The Haloumi salad is served without a dressing. A few slices of haloumi and cherry tomotoes with a plate full of leaves. When we asked for some balsamic vinegar we were presented with some sort of wine dressing that left the... More
