Out of the Blue is an unassuming spot, but from several recommendations from fellow travelers, my friends and I made a reservation a couple weeks in advance which appeared to be a great idea as it's a pretty small space. The food was delicious, so fresh and tasty with what appears to be a revolving daily menu. It's a bit... More

We walked in cold at 7 pm on a Friday night to find them booked solid. We made reservations for the next night. What looks like a seaside, hole-in-the-wall eatery, opens up into a maritime themed small bar area and a separate dining room that is modern and beautifully decorated. The waitstaff is efficient and appropriately friendly. The menu is... More

This place blew my husband and I away. We were lucky to grab a table as a walk-in because it was the tail-end of the season (but it was still booked up, they squeezed us in between reservations). I cannot rave enough about the food. SO FRESH and many interesting/savory flavors. The sides were just as incredible as the main... More

Love this restaurant. In a town with so many good places, this remains our fave. Great fresh seafood menu, which changes by the day , based on what's caught that morning. Recommend reservations!

Had a fantastic casual family lunch here today and can't say enough about it! I had the pollock in potatoe rosti and it was finger-licking good! Gambas were so tasty and lemon sole which other members of our party had were equally amazing. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. We will be back.

We entered this restaurant without reading reviews in advance bases purely on its funky and colourful street presence. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the food was excellent. Having learned previously how large the portions can be in Ireland we each ordered two appetizers - one as a main course. Every dish was beautifully prepared and flavourful. Great service -... More

Decided to try Out of the Blue on a whim our last night in Dingle. We had such a good dinner the night before at Idas we were dubious that there was another delicious five star meal in town. But we were pleasantly surprised. The mussels in wine broth was a delicious starter....better than most. Worthy of a visit.
