“A lovely friendly restaurant serving wonderful food”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We had a meze meal for 24 family and friends to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. I chose Blue Island because we had been there before and had enjoyed it. They did not let us down! - the owners and staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating - helping with the secret planning; providing balloons, etc - and of course so much delicious food and friendly service. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

“Really good value for money”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

I visited based on the ranking on TA and was not disappointed. A very warm welcome, staff very attentive throughout the evening and nothing was too much trouble for them. Really good value for money, the portions are extremely generous, be careful not to fill up on the delicious pitta bread before your meal arrives as there are more tasty treats to follow!

“Seriously good food!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

Interesting restaurant a mixture of English and Greek cuisine. Have to be honest the food tasted amazing! Service was a bit on the slow side and they have to learn the wines to recommend but everything else with every penny.

“Such a great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

The owner kept the restaurant open just for us (group of 8) as when I booked the table for 8pm on a wednesday was not aware that they closed at 7pm. We received a very warm welcome and they recommended we had the Mezze. They kept bringing us tapas style food all night, with so many options. Price was very good for both foods and drinks. Would definitely recommend and we're going back with some friends next month.
