What a great spot. On the sea shore and overlooking the crashing waves ! Lovely food and good service. I had the hake and salad and it was perfectly cooked. A great salad ...

The views from the restaurant may be nice, but the food was not. I ordered a pasta dish and it was swimming in alfredo sauce. It was disgusting and I was not pleased. The food was overpriced and lacking in quality. Would not return or recommend.

Just back from a meal at BWC with a few work colleagues. Good selection of wines but even better choice of food! Everything from sushi to burgers available. Had chicken and avocado salad with grilled halloumi cheese as a side dish. All good!

The setting is great - right on the beach. Food is well prepared with quite a wide variety and a not so pricey wine list. Although the service was acceptable and quicker than most, the waitress did not follow up after bringing the main dish and the manager stood around but did not seem to be interested in visiting any...

The decor has been upgraded and the food was much better than the last time we came here. We waited quite a while for a drink and when the food came it was what one would expect from a quality restaurant with a spectacularly view as one gets from here

Although spoilt for choice on the PE beachfront, we opted to try the Blue Waters Cafe as it seemed a popular eatery. We were seated promptly and the waiter immediately attended to us. He was knowledgeable and helpful when it came to the menu and the many splendid choices on it. I decided to have one of their gourmet burgers... More

The position of the restaurant is really what made us choose this spot. The 6 of had a combination of burgers, nachos and king Klip. The burgers are good and definitely try of your thing. My inlaws who don't really dine out, was kind of expecting a Mac burger😄, and was presently surprised. My wife and son ordered the nachos,... More

We booked in advance and on arrival we were glad we had as it was very busy with people being turned away; the restaurant offers both inside and outside veranda for dining providing clear views of the sea. The menu is extensive and caters for a wide range of tastes, the food was excellent and the service was superb, a... More
