visited for lunch recently and we had a great selection of fish - turbot, shark, sole, salmon. Chowder soup was as good as ever and the young staff could not have been more customer friendly

Came with great expectations, after a recommendation. Was not disappointed. The food was fabulous; perfectly cooked and well presented. What's more, the atmosphere was welcoming and staff easygoing. A great meal: a job well done.

This was one of our best meals in Ireland. The staff here is wonderful. We got the last table outside & it was amazing. We had the pollock & the scallops and both were outstanding. The 3 layer chocolate cake was also great. With the great food & staff Out of the Blue is #1 for a reason!

Awesome restaurant at waters edge. Menu is written on a chalk board. Gourmet Seafood restaurant in a fun setting. The fish is fresh and served elegantly. I'm not a big fish eater, so I stopped in the night before to make sure gambas (shrimp) would be on the menu. They offered to keep a portion aside for me for dinner... More

We had a lovely seafood meal at the quirky 'Out of the Blue' restaurant which is on harbourfront at Dingle. You enter what looks like a little blue shack and walk through to lovely dining room at rear with interesting art on walls. Service was really good and my only comment would be that tables are a bit close together.... More

my husband and I went to Dingle as part of our Honeymoon. We loved the little town and we loved this restaurant! The seafood was amazing. It was our favorite restaurant of our trip. We would go back in a heartbeat if we ever make it back over to Ireland!

Out of the Blue is a local legend in Dingle and deserves to be. It is hard to get bad seafood in Dingle, but Out of the Blue tops them all. It is not a "fish and chips" restaurant. As a matter of fact, you can't even order chips. The limited menu is written on a blackboard each evening and... More

We visited here recently with family after reading rave reviews. It was very hard to get a table however I booked in advance and it didn't disappoint. My fish consisted of John Dory, turbot and snapper. It was gorgeous however my children opted for the chowder and I have to say although it was absolutely piping hot, it wasn't as... More
