Been their a few times and staff is always friendly. The view of the lagoon is stunning and the quality of the food just as good.

We really enjoyed the visit to Blue Bay restaurant. The view is amazing, friendly service from the team. The Menu has some amazing options with very good daily specials. The food was amazing, and will most definitely recommend the restaurant or bar area.

Beautiful lodge and restaurant with great views, unfortunately the food is below average. Their “catch of the day” was cooked from frozen not fresh and actually microwaved so was dry and stringy. Chips, well, would have expected it to be fresh, hand-cut not Mcdonalds fries....More

Mainly seafood. Examples are Muscles in creamy White Wine sauce, different kinds of fish, etc. If homemade bread is your thing, they have that too.

Description
Blue Bay Cafe is a sea side venue nestled in the tranquil and magnificent Saldanha bay. Our glass enclosed panoramic restaurant offers protection from the elements whilst overlooking the gorgeous ocean, fynbos gardens and the and bustling sea port. Our newly designed is unique, small and delicious. We specialise in great food, paired with local, west coast wines, offering a selection of dishes that are done well, and filled with rich tasty flavour. Local ingredients are used and fresh produce is made every day. We'd encourage you to book a candle lit evening with us in order to enjoy the magnificence of our sunsets or an afternoon business lunch, for a touch of class. Blue bay restaurant - cafe, is a rare find on the west coast, setting a bar above the rest.
