Been here a few times over the past year or so & every time has been a very pleasant dining experience. Food & service are consistently excellent. Love the BYO too!

Went for dinner with friends in Avalon - their local favorite is Starfish..a kinda Viet/Aus style cuisine.
The food was exquisite, really well done, full of interesting but not over powering flavours. If you want the snapper best order early (one of my friends did this almost as we sat down - it was only 1900 hrs..and was told she had the last one)
Scallops - excellent - crispy calamari and pork belly as an entree...perfect.
Staff are very pleasant, its BYO, though beer goes well with this food and the coffee to finish with. good.

Visiting Avalon again from the cold and wet UK after a two year absence, I was treated to dinner last night at the Starfish restaurant. Unaware it was already the No 1 place to eat in Avalon, it certainly lived up to its reputation. The place was busy and welcoming, with a menu that is interestingly simple, but with a choice of carefully considered modern dishes. I chose a starter of Vietnamese chicken, prawns and jellyfish in a noodle salad, which was definitely a first for me! The portion size was healthy, plenty enough for the most demanding appetite, it was perfectly designed, fairly spicy, but not too hot! Then I had crispy-skinned duck, with a blood orange and plum sauce with rice, and it was absurdly gorgeous! No desert was needed, as yet again there was plenty of duck on the plate. A great meal, well served by friendly staff, it was certainly enough to make me want to come back again while I'm here.

Were regular visitors to Starfish - best restaurant in Avalon (The re-vamped French place comes in 2nd). Great food, professional friendly service and atmosphere but no pretence at all.

Its a great varied menu and caters for any mood - we've been here time after time and never had a bad meal.

They often have kingfish Sashimi as an appetiser which is awesome - which it was on the menu.

You'll be safest to book - There's no bad tables but the bench seats along the left wall are great if you can grab one.

We are locals and frequent star fish very regularly, in fact it has become our benchmark for which we rate other restaurants and very few surpass it. Service is always exceptional, food is superb, meals are always perfect portions, fresh and delicious could not recommend more highly.
