Blu Grotto Cafe Bar Baroona Rd

Blu Grotto Cafe Bar Baroona Rd

This eclectic venue is a dependable choice for tasty food, from salads and wraps to hearty steaks from the chargrill. Aside from satisfying the stomach, this groovy spot entertains with neon-lit decor, pumping house music and cocktails.

Not the discovery, but the revelation of the "Blu Grotto" is to be credited to the romantic disposition of two German tourists who visited Capri in 1826: Augustus Kopisch, a writer, and Ernst Fries, a painter.

The Grotta was, however, already known locally as "Grotta Gradola", the name being taken from the neighbouring ancient landing place of Gradola and Gradelle, even though it was avoided as a weird and bewitched place not so much because of its narrow access, as because of the legends about monsters and witches that dwelt in it….

The Blu Grotto in Rosalie village is inspired by this natural phenomenon. A dark cavernous opening reveals a mystery of relaxation, fine food and great service.The Blu Grotto has occupied the prime position overlooking the passing parade of trendy Rosalie Village for eight years. The ambience is relaxed and the food affordable and unpretentious modern Australian with Mediterranean and Asian influences.

Whether you are looking for a coffee, cake, cocktail, beer, wine, juice, full meal or share plate from 11.00 weekdays (Excl Mon & Tue) and 8.00 am Sundays until late, then Blu Grotto is the destination for you.
