Fresh fish, high quality ingredients, a MUST if you are in Dingle

I went to dinner here with my mom and sister and we had a great time. They squeezed us in without a reservation. (Note- make a reservation if you can!) We all tried different dishes, and each one was fresh and prepared wonderfully. It was nice to have fresh fish and vegetables after lots of heavier... read more

This restaurant is a gem, it looks like a little blue shack from the outside, along the harbour road, but it goes back a long way, a more relaxed and cosy version (with better food) of Fishy Fishy in Kinsale. The best fish meal we have ever eaten. Remember to book in advance, it was full when we went midweek... More

Great décor and very relaxed, casual dining experience. Mussels and squid delicious, my hake was just ok but my companions' monkfish and john dory was lovely. The sides are a bit odd but at least it's something different. Staff could have been a little friendlier.

This is a nice restaurant. Small and intimate. A little pricey, but look at where you are. Fish was excellent.....split a bowl of the chowder, it is a huge portion and fantastic!

I loved everything about this place. Went here for a rather romantic dinner with my girlfriend. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, yet intimate enough to make it special for the occasion. The menu is a big blackboard with the day's specials printed on it, based on availability of the freshest ingredients. The food is simply delicious, the only drawback... More

If your in Dingle Ireland and you want Seafood this is the place! My wife and I dinned at "Out of the Blue" in Dingle. You will need to make a reservation because the first night exploring the town they were booked up! Not very impressive from the outside but very nice inside. Our table was in a dinning room...

Don't be fooled by the unassuming appearance, this place is first class! My family and I had a wonderful meal here with a lovely view of Dingle Bay. Outstanding chowder, wonderful wine and beautiful fresh fish all served by a helpful, knowledgeable waitstaff. Highly recommend!!
