The Blue Marlin Seafood Restaurant
Fair enjoyed it!Nice staff, decent menu, great service. Only (very small) negative would be the lack, or minimal quantities, of veg with main course. BUT, we'll be back.17/05/2013 00:00:00First visitPleasantly surprised, as we have access to great fresh Scottish seafood that we cook ourselves at least once a week and so our expectation is high. Great menu variety. Really nice to see dishes inspired from around the world. Lovely fresh seafood that the Chef obviously knows how to respect. We are looking forward to our next meal there!14/05/2013 00:00:00Blue MarlinAn old favourite of mine, even better, it would seem, in their new, modern establishment in Dundee.
The surf and turf is a perfect combination of age matured steak and a choice of scallops to prawns.
One of few venues that stock Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc - a perfect addition to the meal and surroundings.

Thanks Blue Marlin!!!26/02/2013 00:00:00Fish food ....fabulousWe did enjoy our meal at the Blue Marlin - delicious fish dishes - interesting menu- friendly staff- great to have somewhere in Dundee to recommend.20/02/2013 00:00:00Most enjoyable visitVisited for early bird lunch on 13th February with my husband. He chose mussells in white wine sauce & I had soup with salmon, pesto & parmesan. Both were excellent. We both chose rock cod with prawns & thermidor sauce served on bed of mash - again an excellent choice. As we were driving we both had soft drinks which we felt were a bit hefty at £2.60 each.
Waiting staff are lovely, professional & friendly as is Steve, the owner. Ambience is lovely too. However as said in previous feedback, we feel the price of drinks - alcoholic & non-alcoholic - are a bit overpriced.This is what stops us giving an overall 5 stars.13/02/2013 00:00:00Consistently good foodThere were four of us on Saturday and the food was excellent as always. Alison takes time to greet all guests as they come in and that is a nice personal touch
The service was nice not too hurried and Steph was very attentive but not intrusive also very helpful with choosing the wine
As always Steve and the kitchen staff producing top notch food about time he got a Michelin star ! but he is our star anyway
See you soon
Alice & Dave09/02/2013 00:00:00wonderfulfirst time in the the blue marlin, went for my birthday, the food was fabulous, very nice inside and relaxing will be going back09/02/2013 00:00:00Love fish? Then you'll love this!Our most recent outing was taking Mum there for her birthday to sample the very reasonably priced 2 or 3 course luncheon menu. The staff were welcoming, very pleasant and attentive as well as being efficient. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the music wasn't too loud as is often the case in some other restaurants. The seats were comfortable and the decor was stylish and pleasing. The menu had a good selection of dishes for fish lovers and catered for vegetarians and meat eaters too but to a lesser degree. They happily provided a starter as a main course too. The food was beautifully presented, was full of flavour and cooked to absolute perfection so we thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. The wine was also very good. We will be back soon!11/01/2013 16:00:00Must Try! :)Really beautifully designed restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Attentive, helpful waitresses :) The food was stunning - I couldn't fault it and really nice presentation - compliments to the chef(s)! Easy to book online. The only flaw was it was a little expensive. I really wanted to try the lobster but it was too much to pay for one dish. And we both had a pasta seafood dish that was stunning but I wouldn't normally pay £20 for a pasta dish. This is the only thing that would stop me coming back - if the prices were lowered a little, I could easily call this one of my new favourite restaurants (and I'd go all the time) because everything else was top notch!10/01/2013 16:00:00We had the taster menu onWe had the taster menu on 31 December 2012. It was really good and te service was excellent. The ambiance was fine and it was good value for money.30/12/2012 16:00:00Elegant atmosphere, unobtrusiveElegant atmosphere, unobtrusive but efficient service and divine seafood. The lobster and prawn tails is magnificant!14/12/2012 16:00:00AnniversaryIt was my wifes and I's 34th wedding anniversary and I wondered where to take her for Dinner. We live around 35 miles from Dundee and I some time looking on the internet for a restaurant that had good reviews. The Blue Marlin didn't disappoint and I have recommend it to friends and will most likely return for a non occassion meal.
Good food and great service coupled with a very pleasant place to dine.14/12/2012 16:00:00
