Amazing seafood! We also ordered the grilled skewers on another occasion and that was just plain delicious at very reasonable prices. The service was also wonderful. We would definitely return.

Gorgeous fresh fish - and you don't feel like you're sitting in the fish market! Great service - ideal for a meal before a show at the Arts Centre (just around the corner)

We went back to find the Blue Ocean this year and found out it was no longer there - there was still a restaurant / cafe but totally different. What a disappointment after the great meal we had last year

Quaint restaurant with a nautical theme, just inside the Jersey Fish Market, Minden Place entrance. Great food, well presented and full of flavour. Excellent value during Tennerfest month.
