We’re all about the good stuff here. Good food, really good views and great wine. We like it simple, local and fresh, and we stand by that in everything we do – from fish and chips in the kiosk, to a three or four-course meal in our restaurant, or just drinks on the deck, taking in our smashing views. Trust us, you’ll never want to leave (we don’t). We like pretty food and fancy settings, but most of all, we like good food and friendly, reliable service (the kind that makes you want to be pals with us). We welcome the thong (flip flops for those playing over the pond), the bathers under the sarong, the ball-gown, the suit and everything in between.
With a focus on fresh, local ingredients, the Star is known for delicious dishes that let you taste the region. While we aim to create beautiful plates of food that’ll make you go wow, for us it’s all about local and showcasing what our abundant region has to offer. While we love our cutlery shiny and our glasses sparkling, we don’t like to be too fancy. We call it fine-and-friendly dining. It’s a little bit nice, but it’s also approachable…so you can swish ‘n’ sniff your wine, but take your shoes off under the table and have a drink with us after your meal, too.
With fresh King George whiting and squid delivered from Kangaroo Island (just down the coast), as well as local pork, beef, veggies, fruit and dairy, you’ll be able to send off your tastebuds on a little adventure. We also have a menu for little humans too.
