We chose this restaurant in the basis of previous reviews and were not disappointed! A lovely room with a great atmosphere, top quality cooking and wines at very fair prices and friendly but professional service. Would highly recommend a visit.
Our visit to the Blue Gem Restaurant was wonderful.
The staff were friendly very knowledgeable about the food and well trained.
The wine list was good and affordable. Our food came quickly and was delicious. Fom the Lanb espatata to the gnocchi everything was tasty...and perfectly prepared
Thanks for a memorable evening we will visit againMore
Absolute Gem this place is . The service from the door to waiters was outstanding. The etiquette on the phone when making a booking is of high standards ,the food!OMG 😭worth every penny . Such a beautiful,clean place. Soooooo dreamy
On entering the Centre we were unimpressed however when our eye caught the restaurant we were quite surprised. Beautiful decor and a real warm welcome.
Cocktails were good The salmon starter was average - tasted like tuna - snails was ok - loved the gnocchi-...dessert was amazing. From the first time we sat and as the evening progressed service seemed to have gone from impressive to slack.More
We ate the most amazing food here, Jacques had the ribs and I had the platter for one to leave some space for dessert (that was decedent and to die for)!
This used to be our favourite place in Bloemfontein before lockdown and we now...remember why :-)
Thank you to Blue Gem, Simon and René for the wonderful service! And our compliments to the chef! We will have many happy returns here!More
exhausted after a long drive from Cape town to Bloemfontein, we were looking at having a nice dinner not too far away from our accommodation, at the guest house we were recommended to go to the Blue Gem and had a very nice food experience...there, we were served large portion (really too large or us actually) of delicious food, generally quantity hardly goes together with quality but The Blue Gem makes it happen. The restaurant has a very good atmosphere, our waiter whose name is Thato delivered a very efficient and pleasant service. Will be happy to have dinner there again.More
