Critic's review

Food
Think pizzas with plenty of different toppings, generous burgers, fish and chips with tomato sauce, seafood pasta and a nice sticky dessert to end – all as far from ‘haute’ as you will ever get.

Wine
A prize-winning wine list is available at the Upper Deck. Downstairs beer is most popular.

Service
Very erratic, so don’t start getting uptight, just go to the window and order.

Ambience
Nobody goes here for the food really, but it is the place to be on a Sunday afternoon, when the grass outside is covered with the young and the beautiful soaking up the ambience and the spectacular Atlantic Ocean views.

And...
Wednesday evenings are curry nights at the Upper Deck, with a wide range of things, much toned down for local tastes. (GL, September 2010)

User reviews

  • Considering the amazing weather on Saturday, and the fact that Blue Peter doesn't allow you to reserve tables, I arrived an hour before the majority of my friends in order to secure tables for our group of about 14 people. There were a few couches out and I asked the supervisor if we could sit there. He said the couches were open to the public so he couldn't reserve them for us, but that we were welcome to move there once the guests occupying them had left, which we did. A few hours later, our waiter informed us that the lounge area was sponsored by Peroni and we would have to leave when the brand reps arrive. When I questioned why this hadn't been communicated beforehand the 'owner', Howard, appeared out of nowhere and rudely interrupted his own member of staff, telling me that our group must move. Howard did not offer an alternative seating solution and told me that our group could "go back to the grass". The Peroni brand manager himself eventually assisted with finding us a table to move to (not the Blue Peter 'owner' who kicked us off our seats in the first place). We didn't allow this to put a damper on our day, but I won't be back. There are more than enough other venues in Bloubergstrand - more welcoming and better priced - that I'd rather spend my time and money at. I give Dickson, our waiter, 5 stars for service, but as a whole Blue Peter's service leaves much to be desired.

  • We are today at the resteraunt upstairs at the Blue Peter and it was disgusting. Everything was frozen nothing fresh. Typical old age home food with bad service and badly presented food. Wine was cold and that's about all that was good. Will not return ever.

  • This is the place to be for relaxed sundowners and a picture postcard view of Table Mountain across the bay. On sunny days the lawn in front of the hotel is packed with a varied crowd, everyone from toddlers and their parents to Harley Davidson enthusiasts. When you’ve watched the sun sizzle over Robben Island, order a pizza from the informal downstairs restaurant or head upstairs for a more formal meal.

  • Absolutely appalling service! Worst I have experienced in Cape Town to date. Will not be returning.

  • I have been to this restaurant many times, and I must say the food is always disappointing - except for the pizzas - but definitely no creativity there.
