Popped in for a quick coffee and cake while waiting till we could check in at our B&B.
Coffee was lovely, nice but slightly dry scone and good brownie.
Service was odd - it wasn't clear if it was counter or table service (or a combination?), but the staff seemed to cope with whichever you decided to do. It was very busy and our table was dirty when we sat down, but was cleaned when our coffee arrived.
Nice atmosphere, a combination of wet people in rain votes and walking clothes (us included), and pretty people in nice clothes out for an afternoon tea treat, and everyone fits in just fine.

We ate here twice in a four day stay in Dunfanaghy. We loved the menu, very interesting with lovely starters (salmon, crab prawn creme fraiche on Guiness bread) and delicious fresh mains e.g sea bass, asparagus, salsa verde, warm salads.
Not licenced so a welcome trip to the store next door for regular priced winew as great. Also have kids meals which were spot on

We had dinner at the Starfish during our stay at Dunfanaghy in August 2013. This was over the Bank Holiday week end so everywhere was very full. The food was good and we enjoyed our scallop. We were advised to purchase our drinks from the supermarket close by to have with our dinner, which was a good idea.

We found Starfish to be a very quaint little restaurant and liked its fresh clean pretty decor. The food was so good we decided to eat there again on our 2nd night. The waitresses who served us were both very pleasant and polite. The meals we had were beautiful and we will certainly be back.
