Located at the promenade of the sea harbor, OOTB definitely is not a type of seafood restaurant for tourists only. You want to come back again after you tasted one of the best seafood restaurants in Dingle. I ordered baked tuna and creamed grey fish as two main courses. That's great! The service is excellent too. By the way, you'd... More

The art work on the walls and cheerful colors welcomed us to a seafood experience. Yes, it is pricey, but it is so well worth the price for the quality and quantity. Sauces are paired with the preparation to enhance the taste of the seafood rather than mask it. Our son and his wife ate here a couple of years... More

You know you're off to a good start when approaching a restaurant the first sign one reads is "we don't do chips". It also implies that in local vernacular "mash and veg" are also off the menu. A blessing when ordering good food as you don't need wads of sides to give you that 'I'm stuffed to the gills" sensation... More

We wanted a great seafood dinner that wasn't deep fried (No fish and chips). Out of the Blue is it. Perfectly prepared seafood, and only seafood, is served here. The menu varies depending on the catch that day. We were fortunate to be there when sea bass was on the menu. A whole fish was baked to perfection and presented... More

Try the Chowder, it is fantastic. The lobster looks amazing (the gentleman at the table next to me was having it). The passion fruit panna cotta is to die for. Service is fast and professional, atmosphere is great and we played "spot the nationality" with the other guests, in our short time there, we had English, French, German and American.

We wait till the days fishing catch comes in and then plan according tho the catch of the day!" Wow! that SOLD my husband and... More

After a few times in Dingle, we managed to book a table for 6 at this restaurant... The menu was huge, so much to pick from... Although in our party, one of us did not like seafood and there was absolutely nothing that had no fish in it. Not blaming the restaurant though. She ended ordering just a side of... More
