Very interesting place to have a coffee or work during the day. Though Menu options need to be increased or improved. Service and people are really good. Ambience is awesome.

Thanks for the nice review! Hear you on the menu options. We are making moves with the help of the lovely Pachamamas in Otres to make improvements and increase vegetarian options. It's been slow progress though I'll admit. It's partly the Cambodia effect and partly being a non-profit we rely on unpaid volunteers like myself to get things done and... More

Thank you, thank you for the lovely review. I know I shouldn't nit pick but I was wondering why you put the title "GreAt Hole in the wall!" though. I'm kind of scratching my head a bit as we're not that low-fi here. Starfish is a beautiful colonial style building, with a stunning garden to chill out it and big... More

Lovely little cafe, a little off the beaten track. The service is super friendly, particularly the manager with his infectious laugh! It's a little more expensive than other local options, but is all for a fantastic cause in supporting local disadvantaged and disabled people. We didn't have a chance to try it, but there are massages offered on site, as... More

Ha! Yes Mr Ra is famous for his infectious laugh. Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us. It's extremely appreciated as nice reviews are the main thing that brings people to our doors these days. It's also very nice of you to highlight that Starfish is a non-profit NGO as people forget (even though we... More

Tucked down a little alley, situated in a cute little garden. Staff were friendly and welcoming. I would like to comment on the food but the only thing that seemed available was the "full English" and as I am a vegetarian....not for me. I get the non profit thing and I am happy to support but it would be nice... More

Oh I am sorry. We are trying to do better with vegetarian options. There are actually a few as the crew from the Dao of Life (best vegan place in town) would tell you but we have obviously failed to point them out. The lovely owners from Pachamama's another vegan place in Otres Village are currently helping revamp Starfish's menu.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review about us and such lovely compliments. Thank you! You're right about our brownies. We make them with not 1 but 3 different types of good quality chocolate. Nowhere in region can compete with that. They do try, but they're not trying hard enough. Hope you'll be back for... More

We stopped here for coffee and juice. We loved the cafe, staff so friendly and the grilled sandwich was super! The relaxed and quiet atmosphere is just what you need in this town. The shop was also very good. It has very beautiful things with fair prices. Do all your souvenier shopping here!

My partner and I just had 2 of the toasted sandwiches and they were awesome! It comes with a fresh salad and homenade dressing on the side which we loved after weeks of noodles, rice and greasy western food. The best part is the service!

Fantastic! Glad you enjoyed your meals. Starfish does try to provide an alternative to all the usual run of the mill food you find around the place. Starfish's black rice bread is quite special and possibly unique in southeast Asia as I've travelled a lot and never come across anything like it elsewhere, even in much more developed places like...
