So this place is quaint, feels like it should be in a non touristy part of Greece rather than on the high street! I'd heard good things from friends so went along, we went Monday so it was fairly quiet, and a little bit chilly - maybe as it was empty?, but the food was so good - we had... More

We ate here as we couldn't get a table at the restaurant we had wanted to eat in. The staff were very welcoming and were very happy to accommodate our requirements to exclude items from one or two dishes. The food was served promptly, but sadly there were some issues. We ordered Mixed Souvlaki, Chicken Souvla, Kleftiko and Calamari. The... More

my wife and i went for our second time to blue island on friday just gone. we cannot rate this place highly enough, the hospitality is second to none and the food is out of this world. in short:- if you want to eat quality cooking just go there, you`ll be mad not too.

We ate here with friends, sharing the mixed meze. We were a bit of awkward party, with one allergic to nuts and 3 not liking seafood, but they adjusted what they brought in the meze to suit our needs and the food was very good and very plentiful. Plus the prices are so reasonable! Absolutely excellent, we'd definitely eat here... More

We went to Blue Island on a Saturday evening while in Southampton for the weekend. The atmosphere and service of the restaurant were lovely and as many other reviewers have said; great wine. We weren't so keen on the food though, we both ordered souvlaki as we ate this a lot while in Greece and loved it there. The meat... More

My wife and I had been meaning to visit Blue Island for a while. With nothing to do on a Saturday night we decided the time was right. As soon as we walked through the door we felt welcome. There is a homely feeling in the restaurant and despite not booking we were seated quickly. We spotted the no card... More

We've wanted to come to Blue Island for ages as it's had such good reviews and finally we had dinner here tonight! The food, service and atmosphere is excellent. We had grilled halloumi as a starter which was delicious and was served quickly. For mains we had the lamb kleftiko which was melt in your mouth and the mixed souvlaki... More

I came here for my birthday meal with my bf and it does not disappoint! It is not the most glamorous of settings but the food and service makes up for it. We had the 15 dish meze and wow it was fantastic! By the time the last few dishes came we were dreading it (in a good way) as... More

We've been to the Blue Island restaurant several times now and the food stays at a consistently high standard and is very reasonably priced. Although Christina was away today, we still got a very warm welcome and felt very at home immediately. We had five starters between four of us, a bowl of french fries, a bottle of wine and... More
