Our second visit. Quite simply, if you enjoy fish in your diet you have got to book a table here! The quality of the ingredients, its preparation and service is consistently excellent. If we could just ask that they sort out the minor issue of supply of suitable beers for their dishes it would be better than perfect! What an... More

Using a previous recommendation from TripAdvisor, we tried Out of the Blue while visiting Dingle. Everything was so well done and our food was excellent too. Our waiter was a pro, knew the answers to every one of our questions and her suggestions were right on target. So many seafood choices caught nearby that very day. The decor was lovely... More

We had a group of 4 people that came for lunch. We all ordered different items with some help from the waiter. We ordered the Tuna carpaccio, Seafood chowder, Salmon pan fried with hash browns and whole flat fish, All the dishes were very fresh and seasoned perfectly. Service was good and we liked the casual ambiance inside the restaurant.... More

I'm not much of a fish lover, but I like to try it when I'm someplace it's fresh. Out of the Blue is located across from the pier, so it doesn't get more fresh than that. We made reservations, as you have to, to get in. Our server brought the menu--a dry erase board; the menu changes each day, depending... More

This is a very popular restaurant - and understandably so. We were very warmly welcomed and the service was slick and efficient. The surroundings were quirky and fun and the food could not be faulted. Presentation was modern, the quality excellent and taste combinations superb.

We popped in for a late Sunday lunch and found the staff welcoming and pleasant. We were shown to our table in a much bigger room than outside appearances suggest. I had the brill and my wife had the sole. Both were exceptional with excellent service. I would certainly recommend a visit.

This restaurant was ok. The food was ok but expensive for what you get. My biggest issue with this place was the lady, whom I presume was the owner/manager. She was constently rushing tables to finish up and pay which I thought was rude. I wouldn't go back again.

We had the best meal of our trip to Ireland at Out of the Blue. We left booking till quite late, and were lucky to snap up seats at the little bar-like table overlooking the street, as the restaurant proper was full. We had the mussels, tuna carpaccio, squid salad and sea bass with a bottle of very nice wine.... More

We were lucky to get a table for dinner here when in Dingle last week. The menu was interesting and varied with all types of fish served in different ways. Most impressive was the freshness of the fish. Service was pleasant and though very busy was never rushed. We loved the speciality teas and the fact that they were made... More
