Consistently good, food & service gets big

- dined at Tru Blu Mediterranean on

This place ticks all the boxes. Excellent service, excellent good, probably the tastiest we had in quite a while. Great ambience in the place and staff who are attentive but not fussy.
Highly recommended for quality of food and value for money. We must return.

- dined at Tru Blu Mediterranean on

We heard about this place and read the reviews. Everybody spoke glowingly about it. So we went. From the minute we walked into the airy light Pastel coloured dining area we felt very comfortable. Then the food!! A lot of good folk have written superlatives but honestly folks, they're understatements. This is the nicest, the tastiest and the most delicious meals we could have come across. Attention to service detail was top drawer as well. Most satisfied with this place. Cannot speak highly enough of it and our sincere appreciation goes to the owners. Needless to say, we'll be back.

True Blu is truly amazing!! Best Mediterranean I've ever had. You can definitely tell that the food is prepared with high quality ingredients and it's just beautiful. I've been there three times now and will definitely be going back for more.

Such a great find is this restaurant. First impressions as we entered were great, a friendly welcome into a lovely atmosphere, soft lighting and nice music. A great table by the window and such a charming waitress with amazing service. The choice on the menu is fantastic together with daily specials. We all enjoyed very different dishes, the sticky lamb ribs were the best ever!!! Perfectly cooked Angus steak with peppercorn sauce, pork belly with scallops and lamb tenderloins - presentation was sensational and unique for each dish!! I will definitely be back to this local gem of a restaurant and thank you Tru Blu for a perfect evening.

- dined at Tru Blu Mediterranean on

The service was welcoming and very attentive. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our main courses. Ocean trout and lamb backstrap, both from the specials board and the steak - all cooked to perfection. We shared the eggplant chips, haloumi and Greek spring rolls for entree. Divine and we will be back !

Very friendly waitress, great services The starters were delicious. For the main we highly recommend the honey glazed lamb cutlets and the duck was delicious too. Great restaurant!

We loved it and judging by the crowds arriving as we left, others feel the same. Great menu, zippy flavors, good portions, relaxed atmosphere. Family friendly - ask for colouring in. Choice of indoor/outdoor dining. Thumbs up. Best first table experience to date.

We went with two friends and couldn't fault the restaurant, at all. Service was always fast and efficient even as the restaurant got busier. The beers icy cold and the girls loved there champagne. The food from entre to main through to the dessert was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend this hidden gem!

This is exactly what First Table is good at.
We would never have found this restaurant any other way.

Food was amazing! We left after our meal feeling satisfied and full. Food was cooked to perfection and with the freshest ingredients. We looooved the octopus and the crab! Would 100% return again to taste the other things on the menu. Perfect place to share plates, enjoy a drink and go for a date night! 10/10

Have been wanting to try this place for ages and wasn’t disappointed. Although we were the first table we were the last to leave. The food and service was spot on. We had ordered too many dishes and they were more than happy to cancel some as the evening wore on. Great local gem - will definitely be back.

So good! We love the delicious food here and also appreciate the warm service. Tru Blu is a delight in every sense.

Great quality, fresh food prepared beautifully. We were made to feel welcome and really enjoyed our meal. The wine list was good and the sticky fig dessert is a must. A gem for Balgowlah.

- dined at Tru Blu Mediterranean on

A perfect gem of a restaurant. We turned up with 2 kids and couldn’t have been made more welcome with attentive, friendly service, great fun too. The atmosphere was like being in a little Mediterranean bistro. Fab margarita cocktail to start. Kids meal of pizza and steak and chips were wolfed down. Then our tapas dishes of crab, octopus, belly pork, green beans and cauliflower purée were absolutely deliciously fabulous. We will be back with friends! Thanks for a great night.

The service and food at Tru Blu Mediterranean restaurant last night was fabulous. The waiters were very attentive and helpful. The food was the best we have had on the northern beaches for a long while. We’ll definitely be back. It’s our new favourite restaurant.

great service, good value, excellent food, best food in the area, 2nd time there, will return again, Phil - Fairlight

- dined at Tru Blu Mediterranean on

From the greeting by the Maitre D Jim as we entered, until we left a couple of hours later, this meal was first class. Jim answered our questions regarding the menu, and all the choices we made were delicious. The starters of sardines were tasty, the eggplant light and delicate, and the crab with roe delicious. How could it get better? Well, the pork belly that's how! Octopus and trout rounded off the mains brilliantly. All accompanied by a delicate French Rose. Room for dessert? Why not! Suffice to say all 3 we tried were gorgeous. Overall rating 11 out of 10!

Alice Lee

We wanted to try almost every dish on the menu but settled for king prawns, trout fish cakes with green rice, whitebait fritters, garlic bread, and sweet potato chips. All dishes were bright and flavorful with ingredients that went beautifully together. Our taste buds were happily satisfied. Couldn't find room to try the yummy sounding desserts but will surely save our stomachs for our next visit!

Wow wow wow. What a sparkling azure gem is this restaurant. From the moment we stepped in we were welcomed warmly and accommodated we had a 3 and 4 year old so some restaurants are not so friendly. The waiter gave us some awesome recommendations the food was original and a real experience we enjoyed it all immensely. The prawns , taramasalata, fig pudding and osso bucco were particularly tantalising thanks you so much for your beautiful hospitality

We had a girl’s night dinner at Tru Blu. My friends are experienced and knowledgeable about good wine and food. I was a bit nervous about recommending somewhere I hadn’t actually eaten myself but they were all very happy!.. We ate starters, mains and desserts and the variety of dishes was great without being too overwhelming ( including some specials of the day).

The quality of the food , portion size and presentation was excellent and we really enjoyed what we had.

The service was attentive without being too smothering, and we liked that there was no background music so we could hear ourselves talk!..

Our first table experience was very good, and we all agreed we will return, even without a first table booking. Thanks for a wonderful evening..

Wonderful food and service. A lovely local restaurant. We arrived late so didn't use the 50% off, however still had a great evening

- dined at Tru Blu Mediterranean on

Excellent service the moment we walked through the door. On our previous visit your food was ordered by ticking various boxes and sharing the plates as they arrived to your table. It was more pleasant to order with the waitress’s assistance with required explanations. My fish was a special and amazing. My husband found his sticky lamb sauce to be a bit “intense” in flavour. We will definitely return to try other dishes as the sides of polenta chips,charred pumpkin and brocolini were mouth-wateringly good!
