Service was not good, ordered Seabass and they only had Hake, less than half the price fish but still charged seabass prices. Food only like warm, had to ask for cutlery and glasses for drinks as not provided. Have been so many times before but this was the worst.

Food is lovely, slightly overpriced however for what it is. Service wasn’t very pleasant I’d like to put it down to a busy sunny Sunday.

This was our second time to The Blue Bar and certainly wont be our last. The food, the staff and the location are all top notch. It's our no 1 date night destination when we can get a date night. New parent troubles lol
As my partners says they have the best wings in Ireland!

I would have given 5 stars but I would love to have been able to go to the bar upstairs and have a drink while overlooking the harbour. You built a beautiful bar and yet rarely use it. I think your customers would love to drink their rather than one of the other bars. Still love it and keep up the brilliant work you all do. :)

Chicken wings are amazing. Lobster was not great. It looked like a couple of lobsters put together and no claw cracker provided to get meat out of claws so it was brought back to the kitchen to be cracked open! Not what I expected for€60.00. Otherwise it was a nice friendly place

Heard a lot about the Blue Bar and I must say it lived up to the good reports. The food and service were very good and I would have no hesitation recommending the Blue Bar to others. My only negative is that it is a little overpriced.

The Blue Bar is one of our favourite restaurants. The only issue we had on this occasion was with the prawns in my wife's seafood platter hadn't been de-veined properly, which was somewhat off putting. The chef passed on apologies, and an offer was made of a free drink. The rest of the food was to Blue Bar's excellent standards, and the wait staff were great, as usual.

As always the food is outstanding and it's worth the travel to get here. Atmosphere and food is always superb. The only thing that let the evening down slightly was our very surly waitress who looked like she'd rather be anywhere else in the world!

We’ve enjoyed Blue Bar for many years now but last weeks dinner was very disappointing. My husband and I both chose the chicken Caesar salad and it was very disappointing. There was far too much dressing which was completely bland. The croutons were too tough to eat and the parmasean biscuits were inedible. My son however was very pleased with his ice cream and sparkler to celebrate his birthday.

Had a lovely meal in Blue Bar. We were a group of seven. Nice big round table could accommodate us all. The girls waiting the table were very friendly and competent. The food was extremely tasty, everyone was happy with what they got. Overall a very friendly, delicious outing in a nice setting. We will be back.

The food was really good and the burgers are excellent.The only issue we had was that there are no gluten free bundys for burgers which is a shame.
The service is ok but could have been way better.Our waitress was not engaging whatsoever and barely cracked a smile.

Frequenting Blue for many years now. The current menu is limited, disappointing there is no salad main course.
Presentation is not what it used to be, prices seem to be on the increase all the time & children’s menu is definitely over priced.
Really enjoy the atmosphere in Blue.
Noted on my reservation we had a birthday & requested a csndle in dessert- didn’t happen.

Very loud, chips weren't fully cooked, onions were burnt/stuck together and quite pricey for what was essentially glorified bar food.

The atmosphere is fabulous, the foods was always excellent but until last tue 21st May, very little choice foods on menu.. Very pricy.. My husband found the hair in his foods, very disappointed.. We were so looking to it... In my opinion.. 1st is too many people in restaurant, 2nd.. Short chefs.. 3rd.. Foods can be not nice cos of too people..... For an example.. Go to small restaurant, the foods is perfect cos they are focusing it.... I would like to say best of luck and successful business in the future, please encourage the staffs hair up with hat..
Thank you
Lorna
