Blues Restaurant



Blues first opened its doors in 1987 and has established itself as a leading restaurant in the Camps Bay Area. I have to say walking into Blues having read or heard nothing about the restaurant I was not expecting much and at first sight Blues, nowadays, looks a little dated, just a little, sorry. The restaurant inside is quite large with an open kitchen at the back and tables laid out in front with views over Camps Bay and a terrace for summer dining.

Whilst we inspected the menu sipping away on an aperitif our friendly waiter reeled off a long list of specials for the evening and without really listening he managed, somehow to get me and my friend to order exactly what he said. I had the soup of the day to start, which was butternut squash with ginger and my friend had the salami wrapped in fig confiture and mozzarella, both dishes were extremely tasty, the soup thick and flavoursome and the salami wraps delicious accompanied with their rocket salad.

For mains I had the catch of the day which was Dorado that came with a honey mustard sauce on a bed of mash, the portion was large and when you got that fine balance of a bit of fish, a bit of potato and the right amount of mustard it all tasted fantastic. My friend had the lamb skewers with potato gratin, which I never tasted but I looked at with a little jealousy as they looked that good, why is it you always order wrong?

The menu as a whole has a good amount of fish dishes that you might expect being right by the sea but also a fair concoction of fish, salads and even pasta dishes coming no doubt from the heart of the restaurants chef, Lorenzo. So from having no expectations whatsoever on entering I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Blues, the atmosphere is quite sophisticated but not enough to put you off just turning up and tucking in, as we did, the food and wine hit the spot in every way and the bill didn’t shock us into not returning!
