Been to blue island many times, but not visited in a long while. The food was excellent as always, they have made alterations which makes the restaurant a cosy and welcoming feel. Keep up the good work Simon and Christina

With a warm welcome from the staff on arrival, we could really feel the family run atmosphere of Blue Island. We ordered the Meze for 6 and it was absolutely fantastic authentic... More

We had heard great things so decided to take my parents post trip to the theatre. It did not disappoint. Food was good especially the starters which were exceptional! Very friendly service and relaxed feel to the restaurant. Thanks for a lovely evening.

We chose this restaurant on the strength of the reviews but were very disappointed. There were no vegetarian main courses, the moussaka chosen by one of the family looked most unappetising (very little was eaten) and the main courses came with a lot (far too much) salad. The service was friendly but I cannot recommend the Blue Island.
