Blue Ocean Jeddah is a great restaurant. Its right on the water at the Fakieh aquarium and has a lovely outdoor terrace overlooking the sea. The decor is over top Miami Art Deco with loads of blue and somehow it just works. The service was really good and very attentive. The food was good, not amazing but still very nice.
We started with the Louisiana Crab Cakes and Dynamite Shrimp and Georgia Peach Milkshake alongside to drink. Maybe an odd combo you might think, but the Peach Milkshake was incredible, probably the nicest we’ve had in Jeddah, fruity, creamy,Â the perfect palate cleanser to the seafood extravaganza we were tucking into.
The crab cakes were delicious and came with a little tartare sauce. The Shrimps were battered and really tasty with a spicy mayonnaise sauce. Again really good.Â For mains I had the Grilled Shrimp and my husband had Caribbean Chicken and Shrimp. They both came with rice and vegetables and were quite tasty but the portion sizes were huge (American Sizes I guess) and they didn’t really give us any breathing space between starter and main so we were beginning to get quite full!
Despite that my husband ordered the keylime pie for dessert. It was OK. almost like a lime flavoured cheesecake, but the waiter had recommended the Mississippi mudslide, so we wish we had ordered that instead!
All in all the food is good, but it’s the venue itself really makes the meal. The atmosphere is great and the views over the ocean are unbeatable in town.Read more
