So it was my brother-in-law's birthday celebrations at the Blue Peter upper deck Lighthouse Restaurant and with menus that are NOT cheaply priced we began with starters...the calamari starter one family member ordered at R78 had microscopic calamari heads that's been fried for much to long with a huge serving of rice...(compensating for the calamari I'm sure). My mother ordered... More

Blue Peter is always our first stop for a drink when we arrive in Cape Town. Although it was a Wednesday afternoon, the place was already filling up with locals and visitors alike. Was informed by staff that from the 6th of December, there would be a live band everyday for the holidays. Definitely a must visit when you in... More

Been staying close to the venue for about a week. Friday afternoon there was some interesting music carried on by the wind and I therefore had to visit. Had some drinks and enjoyed the entertainment. Bit on the expensive side but the service was great.

We had lunch here on Saturday. Interesting history to the site. Buzzing and packed with people. Service was good and staff efficient, friendly and well trained. But it was slightly 'chips with everything ' in style. Good vibe but don't expect haute cuisine!

A great hangout on the beach where the locals unwind. Sublime pizza with a beer or cocktail. Relax on the grass while taking in the view.

Haven't been here for years. Decided to visit Sunday afternoon for lunch as I have fond memories. We ate lunch in the posh part which is the restaurant upstairs. I had never realized that you can have the bar menu up there so had not been before as I thought it too expensive and up market. How wrong was I.... More

Food served is fairly basic i.e pizza's, burgers & steaks and a little over the top with their prices. We had pizza's which were good, but didn't justify the price....caters for the foreign tourist. 2 medium pizzas, 1 juice and 2 draught beers will set you back by about R350 which in local terms is crazy. View of the beach... More

The Blue Peter has long been THE place to have a sunset cocktails in Blouberg. After a hard day soaking up the rays or braving the chilly Atlantic, there are few better places to chill out. Get there early and lay out a rug on the grass embankment to view the sun go down behind Table Mountain. It does get... More

This popular restaurant seems to be full of people every night. Blue Peter terrace is a nice place to watch the sunset. You need warm clothes, because it is always windy in Cape Town. The pizza was delicious and the service was good,
