Well, okay, it's not that upscale, but it is trying to be! The kitchen has good chefs, the menu is solid. The decor is trying hard but getting dated. Entertaiment on weekends adds to the great ambience. Did I mention the food is South American. Adds a bit of romantic twist to it all.
Located in a quiet NW neighbourhood, this place is an exotic little find. Sweet live music on most weekends ... acoustics Spanish guitars, flutes, etc. Very nice touch. And the food ... well, very hearty and tasty. No high school kids in this kitchen! Almost upscale fare ... obviously real chefs. Service is good, ambience is great. Try it. The red meat dishes are great and the seafood is great ... and with South American flair.

This café is off the beaten path in the NW, and we are so happy we found it. The food is excellent, the menu is quite extensive and the specials are unique. We were there on a Monday night, and understand there is live music on the weekends. Would definitely return!

The Prawns and Scallops in the "Blue House Delight" were the best I have ever eaten. Really!
Upscale Latin American cuisine. Seafood is a specialty. Also try cazuela de cordero, a lamb casserole. Entrees: $$$
The Blue House Café is a good place to go if you're looking for something a little different in a dining experience. The lighting is refined and simple; the art is eclectic and the ambiance, warm and inviting. It is a lively place where singers and musicians perform spirited Latin American music and original music compositions. Latin America also dominates the menu with an emphasis on fresh... more
