“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Tucked away behind the main harbour road this was a bit of a find. Lovely local seafood, cooked to a high quality. Not huge portions but very tasty.

“Tasty but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Ate at the Starfish on our recent stay in Tarbert. While the food was tasty it was a little bit
'picture on a plate' and we left looking forward to breakfast.

“Exceptional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The food is truly exceptional, with great seafood. The ginger pudding is to die for! The staff are friendly, humorous and knowledgeable. The restaurant is pleasant and comfortable, perhaps a little noisy if large parties are in. But that is a very small negative. Just go for the food and the staff and you will be back the following night - we were!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great choice, friendly service, delicious fish, great wine. The mussels are highly recommended as is the thick fish soup. The Haddock in a light creamy sauce was a revelation. Most enjoyable.
