The seafood here is excellent and compared to other seafood restaurants in Camps Bay (some which deliver a lower quality of seafood and are more expensive), Ocean Blue really is a wonderful choice for lunch or dinner.

A special mention to our waiter Ramsay who was really helpful and attentive on both times we visited the restaurant.

Although our visit started off badly, they had no record of our booking despite responding to my email confirming the booking. This was however a slight hiccup as they quickly set a table and form them on the service was immaculate. The owner did speak to us and apologised profusely and couldn't understand the mistake but the restaurant more than made up in the quality of food and the warm friendly service. We did intend to go back again but ran out of days !!!

We were walking down Camps Bay around 6pm looking for something to eat (snack) and some cocktails / wine / beers and we came across this place.

I asked if we could have a table for drinks and possibility a dessert (we had eaten a bit late lunch) and were seated at a table. All was going well up until this point. The waiter came over with menus and then came back to take our order. He didn't look like he enjoyed his job which is fine but he made us feel uneasy. I also think that because we were not ordering main meals, we were made to feel uncomfortable even though I mentioned drinks and possibility a dessert at the start - although in truth we were looking for a place where we could have starters too.

So the drinks came (pic of finished drinks included), again with no smile or polite talk. Just the drinks placed and the waiter walked away. Totally fine if you're not expecting a tip but I guess thought people worked a little for their tips.

Then we ordered dessert and I'm 90% sure the guy wasn't even listening to us at this point.

After the dessert came, the 'reserved' sign was placed on our table without anyone saying anything. Guess that was our cue to go.

No one really interacted with us during our time but the restaurant was also pretty empty so it's not like they were busy serving people. Surely they have more time to build a rapport with customers and earn their tips (should they want them).

Anyway we drank our drinks quickly and left (and left a tip which I was really in 2 minds about)..... luckily we stumbled across a hidden gem where we had 3 starters and a bottle of wine. Guess they could have had our business had they been a little nicer.....

Hi there, thank you for this feedback and I have escalated it to find out who you were served by. We are sorry to hear that you felt you were not treated up to standard- we really do not accept this service and it is never the case with our staff so we are sorry to hear this.

As you can see by our reviews that our team are usually great and we hope you can come back another time for a better experience as you deserve. Please email Ivan on blufish@mweb.co.za so we can figure out what happened here.


Sincere apologies, Dina and team

In Camps Bay for breakfast after a wonderful walk along the "Pipe Track" on the slopes of Table Mountain. Beautiful sunny day so were able to sit outdoors. Very friendly service provided by Ramsay and a very good English bacon and eggs.
