I had arranged to meet a lodge brother and he suggested the Blue Eye. It was a pleasant walk from the ship to the Salamanca Place. The lunch portion was quite adequate and tasted great. Very friendly staff and nice clean silo. The market was not open on the day of our visit. Our host then gave us a tour... More

We both had the Blue Eye special prepared with hummus and chick peas. Without breaking, the blue eye needs something to spice it up, and this preparation was perfect. Everything was fresh and beautifully prepared. The dark chocolate tart for dessert was divine. Ridiculously expensive drinks but we had a fine dinner. Reservations a must.

We dined mid week at Blue Eye and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were surprised how busy it was and were pleased that we had booked a table. Upon entry we were greeted in a friendly manner and seated at our freshly prepared table. The decoration is different (collages of fish made from pieces of sheet music pasted on sail... More

We ended up having dinner at Blue Eye twice after we recommended it to friends. It is a busy restaurant but the staff handle it in their stride and the service was good. The menu has a great selection of seafood but does also offer steak. We also enjoyed their deserts including sticky date pudding and a novel creme brulee.

Walking past looking for somewhere to eat. People leaving recommended we try, and we were not disappointed. Seafood plate for two was creative, fresh tasty. Loved the way they served it over three courses. Would eat here regularly if I was a local.

Pleasant place to dine, food wholesome and plentiful, mostly seafood but steak etc available. Staff mostly efficient and certainly pleasant. Our young waives forgot to bring our bread we had ordered, when reminded she promptly returned with the bread and saying we would not be charged for it as she had made the mistake. I loved my grilled salmon meal... More

Our first visit to Blue Eye but definitely not our last! Truly couldn't fault this icon in the making - warmth and humour when taking our reservation; fabulous atmosphere - love the artwork; food so fresh it almost jumped off the plate and creatively enhanced by the chef; an extensive wine list enthusiastically navigated by our waitress (Tracey) who demonstrated...
