Took some friends to Starfish recently and was not overly impressed. Had the sea bream - they were out of the halibut. The dinner was okay - well-cooked fish over a barley risotto. Can't say much positive about the decor or the service. Whole place...More

for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
