    My wife and I have been to this restaurant twice and enjoyed both visits. The food is not cheap but it is exceptionally good and also good value. We both had the snapper main course at $39 a pop and we shared a bowl of chips (they have to be the best in Sydney). This satisfied us completely. The restaurant is BYO wine only which helps a lot with the cost. Highly recommended and you should book ahead for a reservation.

    We booked late so could only get seats outside however after the heater was fixed we were just warm enough. Service was brisk and friendly and food was excellent, the trout starter was the standout. Prices on the high side but I guess worthwhile given the standard of the meal. Overall, highly recommended.

    We went for lunch and we were very impressed with the flavours and the price of our lunch. Would highly recommend it! It was a bit of sunshine in an otherwise very rainy day. Will be back and recommend that you try the baguette and the wagu beef
    salad.

    Excellent little restaurant. We went for dinner on a Thursday night and were very impressed with the quality of the food. The menu is quite unique with a strong Asian influence. We started with shared entree plates of salt & pepper bugs and steamed chicken dumplings and for mains had beautifully cooked jewfish and duck. We didn't really need dessert but couldn't go past their apple and rhubarb crumble. The staff were very competent and friendly. This place is definitely worth a look. We will be back!

    Friends who are Avalon locals took us to Starfish on Sat nite. The freshness of the seafood was second to none. The crab dumpling soup and steamed balmain bugs were juicy, flavoursome and perfectly presented. My partner had the Wagyu steak which was an enormous serve, once again beautifully presented. Service may have been a tad slow but easily forgiven for the quality of the meals. $270 for 4, entree/main each and fabulous as we could byo. Will definite visit there again with or without our Avalon locals! Well done.

    Starfish is fabulous. It comfortably competes with any quality restaurant in the CBD. To find a place like this on the Northern Beaches is a real treat. It has become my favourite restaurant and I'm happy to drive 30 minutes to get there. Consistently good on all five occasions I have visited. Loved the Asian Omelette starter and the Wagyu Pepper Steak. My husband adores the bone marrow special but you might need to ask for it when you book. Great chunky chips. Salt and pepper bugs were also very tasty.

    Desserts like pannacotta and sticky date were delicious. Meal sizes are hearty. Service is friendly and accommodating. The place could do with warming up in winter as it can be breezy. Always book as the secret is getting out about this terrific restaurant.

    Perfect place for lunch in Avalon. Recommendations for the Bang Bang chicken salad and the fish cakes, both superb! Also the kids menu was great my daughter loved the grilled fish.

    First visited some 2 years ago and were quite disappointed with some aspects of the food, but primarily the poor service. Have since been back twice and have enjoyed both occasions immensely. Food quality was high, service was great, will come back!

    Been for brekkie a couple of times. The foods ok, but they could serve larger portions for the prices they charge.
