    I am always recommending Blue Island to others - in my opinion, it is the best Greek food I have ever eaten. Everything is authentic and so delicious. Classic Greek dishes at the best quality, the loveliest staff who will do everything to make you comfortable and take care of you throughout your visit. I am always so impressed even after many visits. It is amazing value for money. The Meze night is incredible, with great Greek entertainment and music in keeping with the authentic style of the restaurant.

    I have eaten here a few times before and am always happy to return for 3 simple reasons: 1. The interesting dishes are of great quality, prepared to a very high standard with amazing flavours 2. The warm friendly welcome and service from the owners of this family run restaurant. 3. The amazing value for money. 2 of us had the Meze Menu of about 10 dishes giving a taste of everything, with a bottle of wine for around £50 Will keep coming back. Keep up the great offer.

    Decided to visit Blue Island for our wedding anniversary as this is our favourite restaurant in Southampton. It was a quiet Tuesday night...but Christina and Simon made us feel like VIPs....food as always was the best ever but even better was the fantastic service and hospitality we received. This is a family business and beats the chain restaurants by miles..you really feel like you have been invited to a friend's home..I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you for making our evening perfect xx

    We've been coming here for a few years now and never get tired of it. We have been for romantic dinners and for family dinners and every time the food, atmosphere and service are amazing. Its always so welcoming at the Blue Island. I had the stifado on Saturday night which was so tender and flavoured beautifully and my partner had the souvlaki. We always ring ahead to make sure we get a table. Simon and Christina and all the waitresses look after you really well. You will not be disappointed. It's by far the best food in Southampton and has the best people. You need to remember to bring cash as they don't accept cards. Thank you Blue Island.

    My review for Blue Island is long overdue! I have a been visiting this independent restaurant for a number of years now and the food and hospitality has never been anything short of excellent. The menu is unassuming, delicious and authentic, portions are huge and prices are extremely reasonable. The staff are also warm and wonderful, and do all that they can to ensure you have a wonderful night - sometimes even adding a portion of moussaka to the meze, for no extra charge! Highly recommended!

    Visited here last night , i wasnt booked in but the staff found us a nice table . We decided on the meze , the food was amazing and it just kept coming , all served by very polite and professional waitresses. A lovely relaxed feel to the restaurant as you would expect if you were in greece , well worth a visit

    From the outside the place looks more cafe-like than restaurant like, but did have customers so we gave it a go. Lovely food, and the portions are fantastic. Proper Greek dishes doen in the traditional way. A very good find!

    Every course was great. The Halloumi cheese, Chicken and Lamb, Greek Salad and Baklava were all absolutely amazing. I'll be coming back to this place every-time I'm back in Southampton!

    The food is delicious, the ambience is charming, the service is fantastic and if you do not visit this gem in Southampton you`d miss out on one of the best evenings you can have in this city! This place is somewhere you would not anticipate to receive all the amazing things you end up having! The front of the shop is nothing remarcable, but do go bravely inside and sit in for dinner! This is by far the best greek food i have tryied in England!!! I went for a dinner with a friend of mine, happened so that we were both in Greece a month earlier. The food prepared in Greece and the food prepared in the Blue Island are so incredibly identical! If you go to any pretencious greek food restaurant, chances are not one person there is greek. In the Blue Island - Chef is greek, lovely waitress is greek and if you were not greek before stepping in the restaurant, prepare yourself to become!!!

    Mid week Birthday meal. Excellent starters of meatballs for some and stuffed vine leaves. All served with lovely warm flatbread. We were all looking for a bowl of tzatziki to dip into but perhaps that’s just us. Mains ranged from mixed meats souvlaki to the most wonderful moussaka. The waitress was friendly and we had a gift of fabulous baklava for the boys birthdays which was a lovely gesture. Very authentic cuisine in a nice family atmosphere. Will definitely return.

    We went to this restaurant last night and all had the meze and weren’t disappointed. The courses just kept coming and all the food was delicious . It’s a lovely little restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff and very reasonable for such good food. It’s a must if you like Greek food and are in Southampton.

    Authentic Greek/Cypriot family run restaurant in the heart of Southampton. Delicious food, casual atmosphere, friendly and chatty staff, especially the owner, Simon, make you feel like you are in Greece. Highly recommended!

    We visited on a Saturday evening after booking (booking’s essential) and were welcomed in then shown to our table by the capable manageress. After that, the highly efficient waitress looked after us very well. The Blue Island is totally authentic and reminded me of warm evenings in Corfu. The menu is classically Greek and not extensive, but what is on offer is totally authentic. I had Stifado and my Partner Souvlaki; both were plentiful, fresh and tasty. We asked for olives to nibble on whilst our food was prepared (lush) and were treated to complimentary Baklava after. Prices are reasonable and the wine more so. As soon as you walk in the door and smell the cooking, you know you’re in for a treat. We’ll look out for one of the Blue Island’s entertainment nights - and book a cab!

    We couldn’t fault our food or service on Saturday. It was such a change to go to a family run restaurant with freshly cooked food. Our starters were generous and tasty served with warm pitta. And our main courses of moussaka and souvlaki were again generous sizes with lovely Greek salad and chips on the side! There was a choice of wine by the glass at £4 or a G and T for £3.50. Highly recommended if you fancy a traditional Greek family run restaurant. Just don’t forget to bring cash as they don’t take credit cards.

    We were in Southampton to connect with a cruise. Looked up restaurants with great reviews and found Blue Island. What incredible food. Perfectly seasoned and melt in your mouth fabulous. We shared the meze for 2 (so much food that 4 could have all been full as well). Best Greek salad, hummus, white cheese and chives, hot mushrooms, grilled chicken, meatballs in omg sauce, stuffed grape leaves, souvlaki, and they brought baklava! Our pretty dimpled waitress smiled and brought us dish after dish. Perfect service. The chef ( perhaps owner) came by to warn us as we gobbled salads to leave room for the " good dishes to come". Loved, and adored the Blue Island.
