Lovely little restaurant in Monkstown. Great welcome and service from the team. The food, mainly fish, though some beef/veggie options, was excellent. We had scallops and open mushroom ravioli to start, shared a black dover sole for mains and finally chocolate mouse and custard tart. Slightly pricey but not really in Dublin price terms. Absolutely recommend this restaurant for couples and groups up to 4, think too tight for larger parties.
We’ve been to lobster many times , and each and every time the entire experience is as fabulous as the 1st. The food & the friendly staff and warm ambiance makes for a very special dining experience,
Good was incredible. Lovely staff. Really enjoyed the dinner.
We had a fabulous night in Lobstar on Friday night. We arrived at 6pm and we were made to feel so welcome. The service was outstanding. We decided to have the early bird special scallops ceviche and then Lobstar ravioli. Both were excellent. It was one of the best nights we have had in a long time.
There were four of us and we had 3 courses, Starters and Mains were excellent - probably the dessert was a little too much. Fish was delicious for mains and starters choices was quite varied and all delicious. Definitely going back - wine selection could be a little better in the €35 to €45 range.
This is the 5th or 6th time we've visited Lobstar in Monkstown - it's our go to restaurant for a local night out and it never fails to impress. Slight menu changes each times (with specials) mean that there is always something new to try. Sometimes it's a little noisy as it's small, but it has a great ambience and it's cosy. I recommend highly if you like fish. Save some space for dessert.
We frequently eat at Lobstar. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious. This is my go-to place when we have guests or a special occasion. And.....it’s so much more convenient than driving into town.
If you haven’t tried this wonderful restaurant you should put it on your dining-out bucket list!
The service was organised, informative and friendly as they explained the menu. The steak, seafood and dessert were some of the best we’d had with flavours and presentation superb. We come form London where this restaurant would be an absolute winner. Thank you! We will come again!!
Exceptional efficient and very friendly. Would have been five stars all round except for limited and very expensive wine list.
Excellent meal - good service!
Had 3 courses with drinks... couldn’t fault it - will be back again soon :)
The service was superb.
The food excellent. Nice mix of tastes and nicely served.
We where looking for our last lunch in Ireland with the best oyster and lobster and we got it!
Fantastic service and delicious food. Well worth a visit.
Service was exemplary and made for a very special occasion
It was my second time to visit Lobstar and I was once again delighted by the experience. The food is incredibly good, really thoughtfully put together, wonderfully prepared and presented and absolutely delicious. The detail provided (by the owner) about the dishes is extraordinarily helpful and I was seriously impressed when she brought out some Tonka beans to show us when we queried what they were. It's a super restaurant and definitely in my opinion one of the hidden gems of south county Dublin!
Amazing restaurants, amazing food, amazing service. Would recommend it any days. It's not a cheap place, but the quality of food and service are of the highest standard
Great food. Charming staff. Very attentive. Wine list could be made a little less expensive.
Really enjoyed the food. The menu was very considered and the presentation of the food was excellent. Our waiters were very helpful and very friendly . I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be coming back again. Well done.
Great restaurant, serious quality, fresh produce, good value for money.
Fantastic professional service! Our favorite restaurant in Dublin. Top tip: Try the Carlingford oysters!
Excellent food and service. Short but well balanced menu, and the different dishes for our group of eight were tasty and well presented. Would warmly recommend.
This was our second time visiting Lobstar, really enjoyed it the first time which is why we went back but it exceeded our expectations on our last visit. Staff were lovely, food was delicious and overall had a lovely evening
Great staff and excellent food, but much more expensive than on our last visit. Unavoidably noisy as it is small and very busy.
Amazing restaurant... I'll be back for sure!!!!!!!
super restaurant with superb service . We will come again. Main waiter from Croatia particularly impressive ! thanks clodagh
A great restaurant. Great to have in the village. Perfect for any occasion.
Lovely place, especially sitting by the window looking out on the town. Great food, especially mushroom ravioli and steak tartare. Also lovely selection of daily specials.
Great little find. Lovely food, friendly staff and charming atmosphere.
Wonderful food and great service
Good food, service and atmosphere - early bird menu is particularly good value. The wine list is a bit dear, but there's some good options.
Great place, second time we've been. We had the lobster, some oysters and drinks and can't really complain about anything. The service was great, the food was very well made and we'll likely be back.
We had a fantastic evening everything was perfect from the food to the service - thank you!
We had a fantastic experience, sat outside as it was quite warm. That made the difference as we had more space and less people around. Amazing food and service. Staff was very attentive and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lobstar to a friend.
The food and service is always fantastic here, the staff are so lovely and really make an effort every time
Lobstar is a lovely small intimate bistro. We think the service is great. The only thing is the Lobster roll is really disappointing. No chunks of lobster or even pieces of lobster, and no taste other than mayonnaise. I wouldn't order that again. The tuna starter was wonderful.
Friends 40th birthday
Perfect place for a weekend lunch.
Thank you we had a fantastic meal. Could not fault in any areas! Will be back!
Superb food and service.
Early bird is exceptionally good value
Amazing food, very friendly staff, highly recommend!
