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!

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!

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.

Arriving in Dingle, we were looking for a place to leave the car so we could walk around the small harbor. And there was this restaurant which really looked like some sort of colourful fish and chips place.
Checking the carte, we realised it was more than that...
We sat on the upper part of the terrasse, enjoying last rays of sun. Service was pro and nice, food was really good.
They don't sell beer but you can go to next door's pub to get a stout to go with the local oysters...
Totally recommend the place !
