I recently moved to the dunfanaghy area, and decided to go to starfish cafe for a breakfast. The atmosphere, decor, service and most importantly the food were top notch. Good variety of everything on the plate and was not swimming in grease like a lot of places. The staff were so friendly and the woman who seemed to be the owner cud not be doing more to please the customers. I have returned here frequently, and the service has never fallen below the standard set the first day I walked in. They even catered for a party of 12 for one nite... As far as eateries and coffee shops in this area go starfish is well ahead of the posse. A family of all ages can be catered for in here and I would highly recommend it

We had a late lunch here today. Having seen the pictures on trip advisor, we ordered the seafood salad and pie of the day. We were not disappointed. The service was quick and friendly and we enjoyed our visit.

we ordered coffee, tea, scones and drinks for the kids. We didn't get the tea or the scones! The place was only half full and seemed to have plenty of staff. Couldn't believe how unperceptive to the customers the customers the staff were. Also the toilet was filthy. We will not be back.

Just back from a 3 night stay in Dunfanaghy and 3 visits in that time to Starfish Café/Bistro! Friendly, attractive café for excellent coffee and free WIFI. Luckily we spotted it is open on Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner. We were told we'd probably not need to book, but glad we did, as by 9pm the place was "hiving"!! Great atmosphere,rather limited menu but food superb! Best ever sea bass! As it's BYO , the price was not excessive (as it would have seemed in the "posher" restaurants we'd been recommended!) 2 starters between 4 of us, 4 main courses and 2 coffees and it worked out at 55euro a couple....would have been 8euro less but for eejit husband who insisted on steak!

I love the atmosphere in this cosy friendly cafe/bistro. I first visited three years ago and they have not rested on their laurels.
Great home baking, fantastic coffee and taste sensation sandwiches.
I just love the beach hut decor and friendly service.
Don't drive through stop at Starfish. You will love it.
