Last visited Blue Sky with my parents in 1999 when we are there almost every night of our holiday and in 1995 before that. Really excited to be bringing my own children to eat in a few weeks!

Although the Gentleman owner sadly passed away recently, Blue Sky was open throughout 2016 so no reason why it would be closed in 2017. Did previously close on Sundays
