The Starboard Grill has now become our go to restaurant to bring out of town guests, because of its great location on the harbour and its excellent food and wine. We brought my parents here and all enjoyed it immensely. Three of us had lamb while my husband steak and it was all excellent. The service is attentive but not overpowering - and the cheesecake for dessert was to die for! The place was quite busy but we still could easily converse. Don't understand the strange comment from another reviewer about "fake positive reviews" because local Port Albernians rave about this place!

Chose this restaurant from the glowing reviews and because they had an experienced chef. Because of the high ceilings the noise in the main dining area made it very hard to hear.
We contemplated going outside but it had started raining. Didn't realize until after that there was some undercover tables.
The food was ordinary and was not outstanding as other reviews suggested. My husband ordered a Perrier or San Pelligrino mineral water. The waitress was not sure and later confirmed that they carried neither. One highlite was the coconut shrimp. Fresh and very tasty!

A decent food, a little bit overpriced, but an amazing location and view. Open patio offers a wonderful place to have your lunch or dinner.

We really enjoyed a meal here. Sat on the outside patio which was really good. Shared a starter then both had a really good fish curry (the waitress told us it was the chef's wife's favourite!) . One of the nicest meals we had on out recent holiday to Canada. Great setting, friendly service , good food and good value. Would thoroughly recommend
