I’ve been to this restaurant a few times with friends and business colleagues.

This restaurant has a prime location on the Camps Bay strip, providing an excellent view. Have to book in peak season. Food is good with service to match. There’s a good enough wine list. There is a separate bar upstairs for pre & post dinner drinks. Sometimes bar has a Dj.

What could be better than fresh fish, well cooked, a couple of glasses of rose (they changed one I didn’t like at no charge) on a sunny afternoon overlooking the Atlantic. Lovely service too. An excellent start to our Cape Town trip. Now off to the beach for a paddle!

We had lunch for 3 on a Tuesday and the place was practically empty. I guess it is most popular for sunset/dinner as the views are spectacular. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient which can be rare in SA as restaurants do not seem to train their waiting staff well. We only ordered one dish each plus wine. Food was delicious but the portions were tiny which drops the value for money score disproportionately. SA serves big portions - this was on a scale of rip-off joints in Europe - so a little disappointed that Bilboa appears to market to tourists rather than locals.

Although the decor was good the food here was not up to the same standard, I’m afraid. The staff, however, were excellent.
