Top notch lunch of hot and cold smoked salmon with a vibrant rocket salad dressing . I love pasta and so appreciated a chilli twist in linguine and mussels. Soaked up sauce with perfect home made brown bread and home made butter. My partner treated me to lunch on a drizzly Friday off and loved his seafood pie which he... More

Everything about the Starfish in Tarbert is just perfect. The staff, the food and the atmosphere. We went on Sunday night and it was so good we went back on Monday for dinner. Nothing was too much trouble. Make sure you visit this restaurant.

We arrived at 13.50 pm, shortly before closing, but were warmly welcomed for lunch. The special was Kedgeree which was excellent. The other special Cullen Skink was also good. There is a very interesting menu and I would certainly return if in Tarbert.

Just had dinner with my partner and we both loved every course! I had sea bass and he had halibut with fresh crispy veggies and home made tomato sauce - yum - felt like a plate of goodness! We managed to squeeze in a chocolate pot - magnificent! My partner had ginger pudding totally scrumptious. Just gutted that we only... More

We ate at the Starfish restaurant last week and can't recommend it enough. We peered through the window to see if anyone else was in there, and as there was, we went in. The menu offered catch of the day, and a couple of daily special starter and mains. The other half had the black pudding and haggis starter, and... More

Nicely furnished and presented the Starfish Restaurant is an excellent establishment. A large group of us sat down to a superb meal - I kick in with Scallops, which were plump and beautifully cooked, followed by a lovely piece of haddock stuffed with (yes I was on a bit of a roll) scallops. An interesting wine list meant that this... More

We've been to the starfish quite a few times. I always start with a perfect little bottle of prosecco. The food is delicious- seafood, meat or veggie. There's always lots of specials. Mackerel pate is my favourite for starters. The wine list us good and not too pricey. Will definitely keep going.

Andrew (of Moorings B&B) suggested the Starfish for dinner and we loved it! Great seafood for my husband and wonderful stuffed peppers with goat cheese for me, the non-seafood eater. Brenda, our waitress was wonderful!!

We came here for dinner on 12.09.14. Friendly service and good food. The mussels starter was enough for 2 people. Won't return to Tarbert to stay but would recommend this restaurant if you are passing by and looking for somewhere for dinner.
