Seafood Restaurant
$$$
“To my shame, The Starfish Restaurant has been open 8 years, and this year is the first time I've visited. It was well worth it, though. A lovely room, very tastefully furnished, and the food is absolutely wonderful. They specialise in seafood, and there's an enormous list of fresh choices on the blackboard over the bar. I can recommend everything, but the seafood stroganoff I had was very special. ”

“The fishing village of Tarbert is a must for a visit. Take morning coffee overlooking the marina, buy some of the best fish you have ever seen at a fish shop you will have to search out because it is so well hidden! There is a large Co-op shop there, as well as cash machines and small pubs and restaurants that are reasonably priced and very friendly.”
