“Good, but a little over-rated”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Fresh seafood, well prepared, good and thoughtful service, but somehow not quite "great". Don't be put off, though. Just lower your expectations from the very high ones set by most of the TA reviewers and go and enjoy a perfectly good seafood dinner.

Only the freshest seafood and fish. All of the dishes we ordered were outstanding and the finale was a delicious desert.

“What A Great Find”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Dinner - Out of the Blue - Dingle

Wine - Pinto Noir -Wiengut geil 2011 Germany €8.50 a glass - light just perfect with sea food.

Starter - we both had the flash seared squid. It came with a salad that was not drenched with vinaigrette - in fact it was perfect. There was cucumber with a light sour cream sauce. It was also perfect.

Mains - Pollock with potato crust and was absolutely delicious.

And pan fried hake with an assortment of veggies as you get in Ireland. The veggies were for the two of us.

Dessert with two spoons Ile Flottante my god this was good.

Two decade cappuccinos.

“yummy dinner”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

what a lovely dinner! after being seated we were a bit confused when the waiter told us that he'll bring the menu in a few min.. then this large board appeared on a chair. very original. menu offered a large variety of fish prepared in unusual ways. we all absolutely loved or dishes, everything tasted so fresh! I've tasted John Dory for the first time and absolutely fell for it ;) Grapefruit sauce.. how original & tasty! We wanted to go back once again but unfortunaely it was closed for Sunday lunch. Small restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff.
