We stopped in twice - once for dinner and once for drinks and dessert - over the course of two days. Every single person we interacted with at Starfish was incredible kind, welcoming, and attentive. Though the restaurant was busy, all the staff were unhurried in their interactions with us and seemed genuinely interested in engaging with us. In a country full of friendly people and good service, Starfish still stands out! Add to this the lovely interiors, their seasonally-inspired menu, gorgeous cabinet food, and inventive dishes (try the harissa mushrooms - amazing!), and you've found yourself a place for dinner. Don't miss this gem. PS We loved the tan square!

We wanted a quick bite to eat as we got into Dunedin a bit later than we thought. We discovered this little place on google and walked around the corner from our hotel. The guy that gave us our table was awesome and very accommodating. The starters were absolutely amazing (Couldn't fault them at all). Mains were fab too - my partner said the best steak hes ever had. Def check this place out - i thought the prices were pretty reasonable for the quality food you got! The Bao Buns were devine - a definet must - along with the calamari. Thanks for awesome food and service - we will def be back if we come down to St Clair again.

Food was excellent, service even better. The kids food came out later than other meals and completely unprompted they apologised and took the drinks off the bill. Highly recommend this place for adults and kids alike.

We went there for a family dinner last night and they were all amazing. My daughter has a life threatening allergy to tree nuts and Sesame seeds. When I spoke to them before we ordered they promised that they would lean part of the kitchen before prepping her food and make sure everything will be ok for her to eat. Thank you all so much.
