Very generous helpings at very reasonable prices. Certainly a place to try. The menu is not extensive but varied enough to satisfy a family party. Cons. Cards are not accepted but cheques... More

We had a night out with four others on Saturday and ordered the Meze which was excellent. Brilliant staff and chef just a shame more people weren't there to enjoy it. This is the second time I've been and I'm yet to be disappointed

We are regular customers of the Blue Island and the meze evening on sunday night was just wonderful; live music, fantastic food and great hospitality from Simon and Christina, as always. The food is always cooked to perfection and beautifully served with great care and attention. It was a shame we couldn't stay for the rest of the evening's music... More

I met up with 7 friends to celebrate a birthday. I called ahead and organised a choice of menus. We were warmly welcomed and the food was ready to be served within ten minutes. The food was plentiful and delicious.we all had a thoroughly good evening.

I had walked past Blue Island a number of times and thought it was just a café. I really fancied some greek food and had already tried a few other local places. I looked through the window and eyed-up the plates of the current customers. It looked amazing! I was with my boyfriend and we both ordered souvlakia, I had... More
