Recommended by our hosts who also suggested that we arrived in time to watch the sunset, which was spectacular. The food was superb. Seafood as always in Cape Town. Tables setup for a view over the sea and beach. Excellent service.

Had a fabulous cocktail and dinner. The staff were very friendly and view was good. I can highly recommend the baby squid starter!

This restaurant is in the location that the well renowned Blues restaurant used to be located. The food was very poor. The line fish we had was the worst we have had in S.A. Not worth a visit. Far better restaurants around. Ambiance noisy.More

I went here twice and I really enjoyed it the first time. First time round I had oysters and beef. Both were really very good. The second time I had the crispy prawns and a very disappointing Kudu dish. Unlike others I find that prawn...More

Bilboa has a modern contemporary feel with great views of Camps Bay beach. The menu includes interesting food and flavour combinations - the crispy prawn starter and the kingklip main course were excellent. I had lemon tart for desert - excellent.More

On a sunny day this is just the right spot - grab a table looking out to the sea and order a bottle of white. The starters as well as the mains are good, service and price quite reasonable. Highly recommended.More
