Wow. Just wow.

We stopped by at 5:30 on a whim and they had a table open at 8:45 that night. Even though it meant we were required to drink a few pints and snack on a few crisps to keep us going, we were glad we waited. These people serve only fish and shellfish, so don't come looking for that amazing Irish... read more

This was far and away the best seafood meal I have ever eaten. The food was so fresh and so simply and perfectly cooked. The service was also excellent. Definitely make reservations, as the place was packed. And for good reason!

We had a lovely meal here on a very wet evening. Hubby had the squid followed by the hake and for dessert he had the rhubarb tart. I had the smoked mackerel starter and then the pollock with samphire which I love. Nice restaurant right opposite the pier.

My partner, child and I made a last min decision to check out the seafood at this restaurant, and the rest as they say, is history. In fact, I was so pleased, I uploaded a picture onto Facebook before I finished my main course. My partner had the Pollock in a potato crust & cream of chives, while I had... More

Delicious food! A bit pricey. We ordered 3 appetizers and they were delicious as well as filling. Unlike other European restaurants that let to sit and hang out, they asked us to leave after we finished our meal (we probably hung out 15 min after our meal).

We come here every time we come to Dingle and after almost a decade, it is still awesome, especially for seafood lovers! I am a foodie and a dietitian studying functional nutrition which involves not only food to plate but using spices and herbs as "food as medicine" concept and inadvertently the chef here taught me that concept because every...

While the food is good, there's really nothing there for children to eat. No kids' menu. No half portions. We ended up just ordering boiled potatoes, adding butter, then feeding her after we got home. It was pretty sad. I guess the biggest issue I had though was their attitude. They didn't care to even try to accommodate her needs... More

We went to Out of the Blue Seafood based on its positive reviews and it didn't disappoint. The fresh fish was out of this world. It was so fresh and had an amazing sauce. We also had mussels for an appetizer and dessert which was equally as good. We usually dine in pubs while in Ireland, but we are so... More
