We had an early dinner at Out of the Blue. As expected, there is a lot of seafood on the menu - which suited us just fine. The food is fantastic and the service is great. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating. We...would definitely go back.More

Myself and my husband had one of the best meals in OOTB while in Dingle. The fish was so fresh and the menu was amazing. The chowder was one of the best I have ever had. The staff were really lovely and helpful. We will...definitely be back again.More

It is good to see a fish/shellfish restaurant only in Ireland, and I love fish, but it just didn't do it for me I found it very bland, I had the chowder and the prawns and I think it wasn't seasoned properly and it hat...too much coriander which was a bit overpowering. The dessert was amazing I had the cheesecake. My husband had the hake and he really enjoyed it.More

We got a cancellation and looked forward to this outing. It was fabulous. Its reputation well deserved. Both of us fawned over our various courses and all were excellent. Ambience and service first rate. Looking forward to a revist.

I was spending my birthday in Dingle and there was nowhere else I wanted to go for dinner. The service was amazing and the food was as delicious as I remember from my previous visit. Plenty of space between tables but still a great atmosphere....The perfect place for a special occasion.More

Our dinner was delicious, lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, perhaps the menu was a little overpriced.

Myself & my partner came here two years ago. The second we knew we were coming back to Dingle, this was the first place we booked - as we loved it so much! The service was brilliant & the staff were so friendly. The food...is so tasty. Great wine selection. They have also nailed the covid-19 regulations that have been imposed upon them. Can’t wait to return ... the lobster never disappoints 🦞😍More

Great fish restaurant. We had booked well in advance - place fully booked and busy on the Monday night we dined. Lovely choices - difficult to choose just one. For starters we opted for the scallop dish and the prawn dish. For mains we had...the monkfish and the hake - done in chilli and ginger. Nice wine list.More

Our meal was remarkable and the staff couldn't have been nicer. I feel so sorry for them working so hard with they masks on but they try so hard to make everything as normal as possible and as enjoyable as possible. You simply must eat...here.More

Fabulous and a great waitress on our evening. Will definitely be back, lovely atmosphere. Only complaint was they wouldn’t sell a painting I fell in love with! Go here!

Yes. They prepared me a vegetarian plate that wasn’t on the menu.
