This is a fantastic restaurant. It's certainly not cheap, but the food is excellent and quite simple, and it's the perfect place for a dinner for two.

We were in time to avail of the early bird menu. Superb value for three courses. Food was beautifully presented and the quality and flavour was excellent. The restaurant itself is small and fairly basic in style. That does not influence my very positive recommendation of this restaurant .

The lobster roll was sensational as always and the salad scrumptious.

However what was disappointing is the Nespresso coffee. Would it perhaps be time to invest in a really good Italian coffee machine? The chairs look as if they are new - I am small and they feel a bit low?

I will of course return but will skip the coffee!

Food and service was fab. While food was pricey it was worth every penny. Wine about 10% over priced and price should be reduced.
Venue nice and small but a little cold near the door. Book early and get a table near the kitchen.
We will definitely go back

The Tuna Poke Ahi and the Open mushroom ravioli were delicious. I am not a fan of deconstructed desserts so while the dessert described as 'French custard cake' tasted fine I was disappointed that it nothing resembling it's name. There was no cake in the dessert, instead there was a small amount of puff pastry.
Overall though it was a very good dinner.

My sister and I had a fantastic meal at Lobstar on Satuday ,the food was absolutely outstanding, i had fish for both main course and starter, with my sister having a steak for her mains. The service so attentive and the restaurant itself was so lovely. Only downside is they only have a wine licence but otherwise 10/10

We have been to Lobstar a few times, mostly dinner, and it never disappoints! The venue is small and cozy and the service is top notch. I recommend the open mushroom ravioli starter, the fresh lobstar, the mashed potato, truffle and parmesan cheese fries, the white chocolate cheese cake, and my husband loves the steaks (has actually said it is the best steak he has ever had). Really, the whole menu is great!

Excellent food and service. Ahi tuna poké is a raw fish dressed with sesami oil and chilli and is fantastic. Lobster roll was also fantastic. Overall a little pricey though.
