After reading reviews prior to our trip, our son was looking forward to dining at Out of the Blue Seafood. Reservations are a must! The atmosphere is very appealing with a view of the harbor. The menu is brought to each table on a large chalkboard which lists the entrees based on what is caught that day. There were 4... More

This restaurant is at the higher end in terms of prices but is well worth it for a treat or special occasion. All the fish is fresh and locally caught. There are great wine selections and speciality beers too. Service feels very personal. The restaurant gets very busy so reserving a place is advised.

Wonderful little restaurant that serves nothing but the freshest seafood. Make reservations well in advance because the place is always packed. The service is first-rate, and the dining room is cozy and quirky for such serious cuisine. The fish is clearly fresh and a treat for someone from Baltimore, Maryland, where the only seafood anyone eats is oysters, crabs, and... More

We had the pleasure of eating at Out of the Blue, a seafood only restaurant, while on a two night stay in Dingle. From the street it is easy to overlook this place. It's painted bright blue, is funky and quaint. But walk by during the dinner hour and you will be immediately drawn inside by the smell of incredible... More

We loved the restaurant's policies: Only seafood on the menu. Only the freshest items from the day's catch. And no chips!!! Dingle has earned the award of being Ireland's foodie capital, and it's well-deserved thanks to restaurants like OOTB. Service was great and very efficient, but turnover is a little fast - they are obviously busy and it's not the... More

Food and wine were outstanding. I had whole sea bass and my wife had the salmon salad plate. Atmosphere and service were very nice.

Great restaurant overlooking marina, excellent quality food, as you’d expect they do only serve fish that is freshly caught that day. We shared a tuna Carpaccio starter, my partner had the cod main and I asked for the mackerel starter as a main portion which they kindly obliged. I am a huge fan of mackerel and this was amazing and... More

This was extremely expensive and, quite frankly, not worth it. My partner ordered the bisque - it was good. I had the mussels - they were served in a ridiculous sauce and, what is worse, made me ill. The mains were both served with a random selection of salads on the place. All looked like they were picked from a... More

Fresh, fresh seafood. Beautiful décor. Attentive service. Would go again for sure for a special occasion but is expensive for everyday dining.
