The restaurant is mainly a fish restaurant, as I am allergic to fish this can sometimes be a problem with the menu being very limited. I had the game kebab - ostrich, kudu, steak, it was really nice. the wine is great and (as we found in most restaurants in Camps Bay) the price very reasonable

Given its location - right on the front - you'd be forgiven for thinking this might the kind of place that packs them in and hurries them out with average food and service. However, the opposite is true. My lamb shank was sensational, and my wife's fish of the day was fall-off-the-bone done-to-a-turn with amazing flavour. Very reasonably priced by... More

Nice food and pleasant atmosphere and would certainly recommend the Kinkclip on the bone as it was very nice.

Fresh seafood dinner right across from the beach. Food was nice and the fish was cooked perfectly. Cocktails were the highlight and only 50 rand. Would definitely recommend.

Very disappointing... Big menu with Pizza, seafood and game... We had the seafood pasta and the seafood curry! Both very fatty and too much cream. Meat looked as a better option and the staff was friendly. Just another tourist trap! Not cheap and bad food

The restaurant was very busy but we were seated quickly and drinks were served in a short space of time. We had seafood and burger, both of which were excellent. I had house wine which was very good. There was a very good choice of food, and the prices were very reasonable. Staff were friendly and ready to give information... More

Recently stumbled upon this gem on our recent visit to Cape Town. Wonderful service, staff, food - so enjoyable we went back. Our waiter Mike made both our visits as memorable as the views. If you have the chance definitely don't pass it by

We had breakfast in Ocean Blue. While service was good, the food was only average & not particularly hot
