Time Out Says

Eating probably isn’t the first thing on people’s minds when they come to Blue Marlin. It is, after all, primarily a beach club with an outstanding line-up of international and local DJ talent performing every weekend.

However, anyone who’s been to the Saturday brunch will tell you that the kitchen here turns out some pretty tasty food.

With that in mind, on our latest visit to check out one of the world’s leading DJs we thought we’d take a table in the restaurant instead of hanging out at the bar.

It turns out that the view of the DJ booth from the restaurant is pretty special, especially if you nab a table on the edge rather than one of the more loungey tables further back.

It’s a pleasant space, still filled with the beautiful people who come here to be seen, but it’s far less hectic than anywhere else in the venue.

The menu includes a good selection of meat, fish and pasta dishes, as well as salads, sashimi and smaller plates ideal for sharing.

We heartily recommend the padrón peppers and crispy squid, as well as some maki rolls. Prices aren’t as high as you might fear, though drinks will push the bill upwards. It’s a top way to experience Blue Marlin.

The bottom line

Excellent food while you party.
