Just a great experience. The space is welcoming, Gillian the proprietor even more so, and she and her daughter Kirsten were the perfect hosts for our evening out. The menu is full of choice and the specials for the evening added another dozen or so choices to the selection...I wanted to try them all! However, let me just say that... More

I popped in to Starfish when I was in Tarbert for a workshop at Zing Organics. The staff are great and service and food was excellent, well priced and beautifully presented, just wish I had more time to have had a couple of courses, but this shall be rectified on my next visit.

This was a great surprise in the little town of Tarbert. Working in the area, we were looking for a seafood place and came here because of very good rumors. We weren't disappointed and enjoyed our grilled fish. Go for the halibut, it's locally produce and original and tastes great'

If you are a fan of excellent seafood this is a must. Great selection of dishes beautifully cooked and presented and at very reasonable prices. Good selection of wine. The staff and owner are very welcoming and the surroundings are intimate. Booking is recommended as it is a busy and popular venue.
