Critic's review

Food
Located on a working wine and herb farm, this bistro showcases both products, while also reflecting the changing seasons. The starter of quail and duck liver crepinette with shimeji mushrooms and asparagus spears was as pretty as a picture. Artfully presented, it still packed a punch in terms of flavour – especially the superbly cooked liver. Confit of duck with mash features among the mains, while the roast suckling pig with olive mashed potatoes and brioche is tempting too. The blue cheese and cauliflower soup of the day is rich enough to lure carnivores over to the green side.

Wine
Heavily weighted to Allée Bleue's own produce but there are a few other local options available.

Service
Delightfully warm and attentive. Eager to please and knowledgeable.

Ambience
From powder to Delft, primary, cerulean and even azure... Any way you describe it, the decor is blue. Yet the combination with clean, crisp white napery works a treat and fits the venue perfectly.

And...
Fans of chocolate fondant desserts should not pass this one up, served with homemade vanilla ice-cream. (FM, October 2011)

User reviews

  • It is often the case when a restaurant is not full that service is poor as it seems the waiters have better things to do than serve the poor saps who have arrived. Allee Bleue did not disappoint and the breakfast we had followed suit. They have no idea how to do a Hollandiase for their eggs benedict and the bacon was barely cooked. For the healt breakfast I can say the fruit looked nice but we would still have been better off at home will Woolies muesli, yohurt and fruit on our own stoep. The capacinos we had we mediocre. Located at the front entrance means that you have all the vehicle traffic noise R45.
