This is a lovely Family run Restaurant just off of the main "Strip" but ideal for a Family night out. Away from the noise of the strip "Francesco" offers good food & drink at a very reasonable price, plus his great sense of humour & fun, tricks for the Children and Adults too. We went to the Blue Sky three... More

visited on trip advisor reviews and it exceeded all expectations.We were agroup of 12, all ages and tastes. Seafood amazing, all very freshly cooked and the mixed grills were mouth watering.The owner and his staff were very attentive, and the card tricks were an added extra. Extremely good value, the house wines included and a very high quality!

After discovering 'Blue Sky', (it is tucked away, but only a minutes walk off The Strip) we always choose to have a meal there, at least once per holiday, and often reserve it for a special occasion. Francisco is very welcoming, as are all other staff we have met there, and the food is very good, well cooked, reasonably priced... More

We have visited Blue Sky since 1986 and were not sure about re-visiting after "Mamma" the owner passed away 4 years ago. The sons had tried to keep up the business but when we last visited they said it would be hard to keep the momentum going. When we arrived on a gale-force, downpour night in the last week of... More

This restaurant is AMAZING!! Plese don't be discouraged by it's simple surroundings. It is a family restaurant, I suppose they do not have a large budget to improve surroundings. The food is absolutely amazing! Chicken piri-piri is to die for, in fact that is the best chicken I ever had. The owner of the restaurant is an extremely friendly man,... More

What can I say ? A delightful place to enjoy an evening meal. Fantastic well cooked food. We ordered mushrooms to start which were very tasty followed by the special rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection and pork medallions with a mushroom sauce which was equally as good. The atmosphere provided by the host/owner Francisco was superb and... More

As many other reviews have said, this restaurant is hidden away off the main strip and is the type of place we usually look for. Their tout on the main street was very enthusiastic and persuasive, but not pushy and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner of the restaurant. My wife and I are very experienced... More
