Delicious food; lovely staff; great service. But very very noisy. And I think the wine is overpriced. I would pay your wine prices if the restaurant had a better ambiance and a more upmarket feel about it in terms if decor and table settings etc.. The food is so good though that I will be back!
Great restaurant, staff and food. The open mushroom ravioli is one of my favourite dishes.
Amazing small boutique restaurant with a great wine selection and truly well made food. We had the beef tartare , probably best I ever had. The oysters were outstanding.
This is the 4th or 5th time we’ve visited Lobstar, and it’s the one restaurant in Monkstown that we keep returning to. The fixed price menu is good value, and the food is fantastic. I’m slowly making my way through all of the fish options, but there are plenty of non-fish options also. The service is always good, and even with families in the restaurant (we ate at 6pm on a wet Sunday), there was no additional noise or disturbance.
I’m already looking for the next excuse to return!
Lovely Saturday lunch. Lobster roll superb. Oysters gorgeous. Marco from Zagreb top class. Looked after us very well. Knowledgeable about the food wonderful manner. Altogether terrific
Great neighborhood restaurant and food was wonderful.
but It is too nosey so you need to be warned that there is not much privacy
Great service, friendly efficient staff, wonderful food.
Child in a pram making noise in a restaurant which should not allow children
Top quality food, great service! Small menu but really enjoyed it!
The food was delicious and our server was amazing! Couldn’t have been nicer. We definitely would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Truffle fries are DIVINE.
Another brilliant night in a great restaurant. Service always good and food fantastic as always
Enjoyed another lovely evening in Lobstar. Fab food great atmosphere. Looked after so well by Veronika an her super team.
Exceptional food and service. Nothing was too much trouble. Diffucult to choose from the menu as it all looked so good.
The food and the service were top notch. This was the sweetest lobster I’ve ever had. The lobster ravioli was incredible with just the right amount of tender pasta and succulent lobster covered with a very flavorful lobster bisque. The only downside was the high price of the 1/2 lobster but I’d do it again.
Best oysters and dinner we had in a long time. Highly recommend
Booked an early bird for 3 ladies on Saturday evening.
Called (on the day) to move it out an hour which they graciously accomodated.
Arrived to friendly, efficient service.
3 starters - oysters (A combination of naked and Asian), the mango and fennel salad and tuna ahi poke.
Presentation was stunning. The oysters were a triumph. The tuna was declared outstanding. The salad was very good (but I had chosen on the basis it was the only vegetarian option as opposed to it being my top choice).
Mains - 1 lobster ravioli, 2 open mushrooms ravioli.
The lobster ravioli was superb. Looked stunning and tasted even better. The mushroom ravioli was unbelievable... one of (if not THE) best vegetarian dishes I have ever tasted.
We shared a French vanilla custard dessert and it was utterly sublime.
The presentation throughout was perfect. Not pretentious - just perfect. In fact, we struggled to maintain conversation as we were constantly distracted watching the stream of stunning dishes coming out from the kitchen.
Truthfully- this was some of the best food we have all had in a long time.
Loved the service - friendly, professional and they were clearly enthusiastic and proud of what they are doing.
Thank you for an amazing gastro experience!
Keep doing what you are doing - We will be back!
Service was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Small, cosy restaurant allows for relaxed dining. Would definitely return !
Excellent place, will be back. Very friendly service.
Service is always absolutely exceptional
Lobstar goes from strength to strength. As a longstanding fan I always look forward to a visit . What is particularly impressive is Zolts continuing evolution of the menu . Apart from the consistent excellence of oysters , starters , lobster dishes etc., the recent focus on a market fish special of the day is a great success . Black Sole for two last week : beautifully cooked and served accompanied by delicate sides and elegant bearnaise . A culinary delight . Veronica and Marco and staff as ever sustain the personal welcome and meticulous attention to detail . Well done .
Service is excellent . My favorite dish was actually the open mushroom raviolis.
Never disappoints - Lobster roll is a must & the deep fried fish cakes were incredible.
Food was very good and the service was perfect. Room itself is a little small.
Sensational thank you so much! Delicious food and lovely wines and attentive service
Top class for start to finish. Absolutely beautiful food and top notch service. 100% will be back
Mothers Day Lunch. Lovely specials and a la carts. Many of specials available on the early bird menu which they had for Mother’s Day. Started with a glass of Prosecco for all Mother’s ( lovely touch) . Then the lightest pastry with mackerel foam. Superb. We had the scallops , chicken wings and tuna poke.All delicious.Followed by the lobster tail burger and the lobster roll. No negative comments. Service was impeccable and friendly. I love the mango and fennel salad they serve with the lobster roll . Next time I will try the specials . This is such a warm and friendly restaurant with great food. Worth a visit .
Beautiful meal, as always, with friendly service and great atmosphere - will be back!!
The service was great as were the chicken wings but sadly everything else was disappointing. My glass of wine was served with an accompaniment of cork, the scallop starter was minimal and my lobster ravolli tasted like medicine.
Absolutely amazing dinner, and made only better by the service. While the lobster was delicious, I would wholeheartedly recommend the fillet steak (out of this world!!).
Great food and great staff. Would recommend without hesitation
Delicious food great service. A bit too noisy
Fantastic food service and welcome . Highly recommend . This was only our second visit but Maitre d remembered us and the wine we like ! Well done
The portions - main course mainly,was rather small. Dessert was outstanding
Staff were so nice and the food was delicious
Amazing food and service!
Faultless. Warm service and delicious meal.
Price reflects the quality. Will certainly be back.
Fantastic food, beautifully presented and served by friendly and helpful staff. Quite a small room and can be a little noisy. Seating a little uncomfortable, otherwise perfect!
Totally! Amazing food and great service. Would love to come back again. Oysters were at a great quality and lobster ravioli was good.
Wonderful as always
