    Visited tonight and had the most wonderful authentic Greek food. Tender and delicious souvlaki, huge prawns, grilled halloumi and many other dishes in the meze. The service was friendly, relaxed and felt like I was in Cyprus! Also served a very nice Jack and coke!

    In a place like Southampton where it is filled with food chains, Blue Island is the authentic food you need in your life. The traditional greek food on the Meze menu is unbelievable, the souvlaki and meatball being the highlight dishes for me. The staff are friendly and welcoming, making the whole Blue Island experience at 10/10.

    We had lunch in this beautiful corner of Grece, great food and at very good price. Love it. We had the special menu, kind of set menu with all the speciality. Superb!

    I booked a table on a Saturday night to try with my husband. The business seems to be family run so it gives you a very homely feeling, in combination with a rather small seating area. The waitress was very kind and helpful. We tried the meze specials so we were given several platters to enjoy, like tzatziki, humus, Greek salad, lamb skewers, pita bread, small spinach pies etc. It was absolutely delicious, that we couldn’t fit anything else in our stomachs, so the owner who is the sweetest man, thought that we didn’t like the food he made us and we just explained we were super full, so they packed the rest of our meal to take at home. Most Greek restaurants outside of Greece do not live up even close to the original Greek cuisine ( which is the case with many restaurants offering foreign cuisine in other countries) but I think this is the closest I have eaten from the Greek restaurants I have visited in Sotton. I will definitely come back but with more people to be able to eat all the platters haha!

    The decor in this little white and blue restaurant is very much like many you would find in Cyprus or Greece. The food is very good with a menu of Grecian staples. We all had the kleftiko which was melt-in-the-mouth delicious, following on from different starters of houmous, taromasalata and lounza with halloumi. Apart from the cold red wine, everything was great. Don't forget to bring cash as they don't take cards.

    On a recent visit to The Mayflower Theatre we came upon a real find in Blue Island, a family run Greek restaurant. We were warmly welcomed by a lovely waitress who explained how the menu worked. Over a glass of chilled Rose wine and tasty olives we made our choice. Beautifully cooked Calamari followed by an authentic homemade Moussaka and Greek Salad. Both quite delicious. If you find yourself in this area of Southampton either for shopping or the theatre, do give this gem a try. You will not be disappointed!

    The food is of exceptional quality regardless of the affordable prices. I can only speculate that their profit margin is narrow as you could tell they use top quality ingredients. Very good and very hospitable staff.

    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!

    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.
