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.
A prize-winning wine list is available at the Upper Deck. Downstairs beer is most popular.
Very erratic, so don’t start getting uptight, just go to the window and order.
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.
Wednesday evenings are curry nights at the Upper Deck, with a wide range of things, much toned down for local tastes. (GL, September 2010)
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.
Beautiful location and setting, but I was very disappointed with the food. I had a seafood basket and It was the worst I have ever had, This was disappointing after reading that their specialty was seafood. All the items in my basket clearly came out of a box. Sad to spoil such a lovely setting with such terrible food. And It took the staff about 10 minutes to notice that we arrived.
Sundowner drinks on the deck of the Blue Peter is a Cape Town tradition, and when you first clap eyes on this places amazing post-card pretty view of Table Mountain, youll understand why. Order a couple of ales and be mezmerised by the rolling surf.
