Description: A Seafood Only Restaurant, perfectly situated on the harbour in Dingle. Pretty fine, interesting, colourful, fun and fresh dining for a Shack !
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The docks of Dingle town don't promise as much as they deliver. The Out of the Blue restaurant gets high praise from Rick Steves, which is why we sought it out. We almost laughed at the idea of "reservations recommended" since the place is out of the way and not very glamorous from the outside. The fact is, this is a gourmet seafood restaurant. The Dingle Peninsula is one of the first places the Atlantic encounters land on its eastward side. As a result, the waters, and therefore the edible denizens, are exceedingly clean. I have never had scallops whose filters were still attached. We thought the dish was served with carrots until our knowledgeable waiter pointed out that the orange bits were the scallops' filters. The waters are so clean that these filters were an added taste to the dish. I can also recommend the mussels. In fact, given the quality of what we had, I can guess that any item you select will be exceptional. There is a very good wine list to complement all of the menu features. This is an incredible restaurant!

Our Hotel booked this restaurant for us, we didn't know what to expect, but we were so pleased.

The food, service, and ambiance were all really fantastic. The flavours were very subtle and beautiful - I highly recommend this restaurant.

The waiters in particular were very knowledegable !.

Can't wait to visit again!

Nearly walked by this place as it is very unassuming from the front. Glad we didn't. Wonderful dinner! Beautiful presentation, marvelous food. Not inexpensive, but not to be missed.

We have eaten here before and it was on the top of the list to return to. All of the fish is so fresh and prepared so well. The desserts are also a highlight. Be sure to have one. I think the freshness of the fish is the thing that stands out. What is served is what was caught that day.

From the outside, this looks like little more than a seafood shack. But step inside and it's a whole different ambiance. Lovely spot on the bay with incredibly good food. My husband thoroughly enjoyed fresh oysters, followed by clean, fresh fish. The service was very friendly and the place had a wonderfully comfortable, casual feel. I had potato crusted haddock, which was perfectly prepared. A thin layer of shredded potatoes formed a crispy crust over moist, meaty fish. It came with fresh veggies that were crisp and clean. Fantastic meal. As they say, if there's no fresh catch, they just won't open.
