This bustling restaurant under the silos at Salamanca presents very good seafood, fresh, varied and imaginatively presented. Staff are knowledgeable and hard-working. You can sit out the front and have a drink and watch the sunset. Welcoming and really very good quality food.

We were staying in the Grand Chancellor Hobart, and the food options around the hotel seemed to be either take away fish and chips, or quite pricey restaurants. We found Blue Eye on TripAdvisor. Great! Lovely chowder, lovely fish pie, plus other menu items we didn't get a chance to try. And to really top off the positives, BYO. We... More

The place was humming on a Friday night and from our table in the corner of the big picture windows we saw many hopeful people being turned away because they were fully booked - and full, from early evening. The food was... More

Had an early dinner here with my husband. The service was very quick and friendly. Our fish was very good and I had a local pear cider. Very nice.
