Food average, service not that great! Management to consider more exciting dishes on the menu to echo the beautiful surrounds. Would only return for the breathtaking view.

Blu offer great food and setting it’s just a pity that the once great steak and mushroom sauce is no longer available . In fact as a meat lover as are many South Africans and overseas diners will be disappointed. My children also couldn’t order...More

Extremely friendly staff, great food & wine, & the most breathtaking view (especially at sunset)! Got the vegetarian option for dinner and it was probably my favorite meal of the whole trip! My husband got the fish and he loved it. Would go back here...More

Although I did not eat at this restaurant, the service and location is unbelievable. The deco and ambiance is very good and if you need to have a quick snack or lunch this restaurant is well worth a visit.
