Tarbert has many places to chose from for an evening meal however this place is a must.
It's situated just behind the Corner House Bar so not it's not one of the first ones you notice. The food is outstanding and although it is a seafood restaurant they also cater for people who don't enjoy fish and shellfish.
I would recomend booking a table as they are always very busy.
The staff are friendly and polite and the atmosphere is great.
The last time I ate here I was with a party of around15. We each had 2 courses and numerous bottles of wine and fizz and the price was very resonable at £30 each.

My wife and I ate here on two consecutive evenings and could have easily had more meals here. The menu choice was such that it was difficult to choose. There was an a la carte menu together with a large blackboard detailing the specials of the day and the catches of the day.

We were not disappointed with our chosen dishes. The food quality was excellent and the service was great. If you are spending just one night in Tarbert this is a restaurant not to miss.

A chance peek in the door by our skipper got the thumbs up - "it has a nice aroma and looks homely" All six of our party were very pleased with the quality of the food and caring service. Fish pie, Seafood Stroganoff, Dougal's Smoked Haddock, King Scallops - all cooked to perfection. If we are ever back in Tarbert we will definitely eat at the Starfish again.

Excellent food. Staff very friendly. Nothing too much of a bother for them. Pudding was on the large side! Happily exhanged it for ice cream. Would recommend booking a table as it was pretty busy.
