This was extremely expensive and, quite frankly, not worth it. My partner ordered the bisque - it was good. I had the mussels - they were served in a ridiculous sauce and, what is worse, made me ill. The mains were both served with a random selection of salads on the place. All looked like they were picked from a... More

Fresh, fresh seafood. Beautiful décor. Attentive service. Would go again for sure for a special occasion but is expensive for everyday dining.

The food is very good. Fresh fish, well cooked. The staff is very nice and smiling. The place is really charming, a small restaurant on the pier. One of the thing we really appreciated was a little list of fish names translated in several languages. Our knowledge of English fishy names was quite limited before that :)

Really enjoyed our dinner at Out of the Blue. Big tip is do the early bird special. The restaurant is pricey and the early bird saves money. You can get a two course for €27.50 or three course meal for €31.00 on the early bird. The menu changes nightly depending on what fish come off the fishing boats....can't get an... More

I had read the reviews for OOTB and was impressed by the number and quality of great reviews. The quality of the food was very impressive! Everything is FRESH! The service was excellent! We were a party of 16 plus one child and took almost the entire restaurant! I thank the entire staff and chef for a memorable experience!

Second time eating in Out of the Blue. First visited last summer and couldn't find any fault with both experiences. Good service, beautiful dishes of well cooked fish accompanied with great wine. Atmosphere could be somewhat improved with perhaps some additional soft furnishings/lighting changes but this is a minor complaint.

The calamari and prawns for entree, Salmon and Black Sole for mains all cooked with skill and were faultless. The wait staff friendly, helpful and trained very well. Service is fast. A far better meal than expected.

Even though the sign says "Seafood Only," the occasional beef- or lamb-seeker wanders in here and is dazed by the blackboard menu that lists this fish, that fish, another fish, just about everything that comes in a shell, fish stews and chowders, a vegetarian option or two and perfect fresh vegetables to go with perfect fresh "Seafood Only." The menu... More

We were very lucky, walked in and got the last table for two. They turned away a dozen groups after U.S. Just while we were there as they were fully booked. Amazing food, but you get what you pay for and it is slightly more costly than average. All seafood/fish so great for a pescatarian like me who usually has... More
