Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Yum, yum, yum. The Meze is amazing and lots of it. Waitress was so friendly, but not in your face at all. Highly recommended.

This is the best meze we have ever had, everything was delicious, freshly made and cooked with love. The dolmades are meat ones and cooked from scratch something that’s rare. The chicken was amazing, the dips delicious. I can’t recommend this place enough and the...service was excellent. If you get chance you need to eat here!More

We had a most delicious meal. The food was freshly cooked and like the best we have experienced on a Greek island. The portions were generous and the service was friendly and efficient. We loved all the pictures of Greek Islands on the wall. What...a gem!More

We went to the Blue Island with friends for a mid-week meze. The food, service and relaxed atmosphere was wonderful. Each dish was beautifully cooked and flavoured; Greek salad, dips, pitta, mushrooms, meatballs, the most delicious homemade dolmades, lounza, halloumi, souvlaki, chicken and chips. It...really was a feast and our friends were so impressed. The service was superb as well. Its a unique place in the heart of Southampton that i can't recommend enough.More

What a gem of a Greek restaurant. Friendly team ,but so quiet. Admittedly we were dinning at 18.00 as we had a show to see at the mayflower but there was only one other couple in eating We hope that they get busier later or...at the weekends . The food was lovely and so was the wine and great value.More

5* Food and Service!! We shared the Meze for two and a bottle of wine and it was faultless. We had so much food we had to take some home and everything was freshly cooked by the incredible chef. The staff were really personable and...came out to chat to us on what was a relatively quiet night for them.More
