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.

We visited this establishment 3 times over a course of a week. Why? Very few options to enjoy a great meal in Saldanha!
I always say, “If you have it on your menu you must be able to serve it well!”
Everything we ordered was really good!
We had the Patagonian Calamari, chilli poppers , mussels and battered hake. The garlic Aoili served with the poppers is amazing!
My son has simple taste and insists that the cheese toastie is simply the best! I did not believe him as I thought mine had to better … but I was wrong.. it is a great toastie!!!!

Chanay the manageress is absolutely wonderful. She adds a special vibe to the place!!!

When we arrived at the restaurant, unfortunately, there was no one at the door to welcome us, we walked in and hed to find ourselves a table. When the waitress finally decided to attend to us, she didn't even bother to introduce herself. We later realised that other guests who were arriving at the restaurant was properly welcomed and well taken care of. They gave us a questionnaire to rate and comment on thethe place, but the waitress discarded of the paper the moment she, thought we were not looking!!! Beautiful food, but horrible service and treatment!

Remember on Thursdays we have a sirloin steak special for only R85 per person and on Mondays eat as many mussels as you like for only R90 per person. So he hope to see you again soon!
