“Freshest fish ever, lovely presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were in Dingle for a bank holiday, and were able to dine at Sunday lunch. The menu changes daily, and we just took the advise of the server, who did not lead us wrong. (The plaice was to die for.) Glad we had a chance to eat here!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is certainly a high end resturaunt but the food and service was worth it. The food was delicious even though I normally don't prefer seafood and the staff was wonderful. You must make reservations or you most likely won't get a seat. They also give you plenty of food.

“Excellent!!! Dingle's Best - if not Ireland's Best Seafood Restaurant!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

My wife and I have eaten in Out of the Blue several times over the last few years and have just returned from 3-nights in Dingle where we dined each night in Out of the Blue. Yes, it is bordering on expensive but the food is genuinely excellent. No pretentious sauces or artistic decorations - only fantastically well cooked seafood. The monk fish I had last night was - without doubt - the BEST monk fish I have ever had. Don't expect Michelin Star presentation or wierd combinations - just expect the best seafood in town and you will be more than happy!

“Boston has Legal's, Dingle has out of the Blue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

The funky exterior gives way to a wonderful, warm, artfully designed interior. Could have been in SoHo. Waitstaff was quick and friendly.

The French chef has carved out the best food show in town: locals know it enough to advise getting a reservation !

the menu was really extraordinary, and the fish all catch-of-the-day fresh from the docks which are just across the street.

treat yourself!

“Very good fresh fish, but a bit expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Placed across from the dock, Out of the blue is a very good restaurant for fresh fish. The building itself is a bit deceiving, old fashioned outside and very well decorated inside.
We went there for lunch, and the food was ok, nothing spectacular apart from the price what in my opinion was too much for the food we had.
We had squid for starter and hake as a main course, well prepared but a bit tasteless. The dessert was good too.
