If you are looking for the spirit of the Greek Taverna then this is the place to be. The food is excellent, the owners extremely friendly and the service great. It has a great atmosphere and is wonderfully authentic. The Souvlaki, the Dolmades and the Mousaka are fantastic. This place is a treasure. Thank you Blue Island.

Complimentary wine was a really nice touch especially for those who were going. Everyone was very well looked after including our vegetarian friends. Great atmosphere, highly relaxing and we... More

What can I say. My wife and I saw reviews on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a go. For two people that are fussy about their food, this place really delivered. If you like beautifully cooked fresh food and great service then the Blue Island will not disappoint. You couldn't ask for more friendly owners and melt... More

We forgot to tell the owner we were vegetarian (we eat fish) but this didn't matter as the owner decided to pop out... More
