Perfect experience at Under the Stars. There was a good (and tasty!) range of tapas available, and the staff were friendly and very accommodating to allergies, which was much appreciated. Definitely recommend.

We were stuck as we really fancied tapas but our number one choice was fully booked so we took a punt on Under the Stars. Like others I was a bit apprehensive about the whole thing when we stepped onto the boat but actually it was probably one of the best nights with the family (wife and 2 kids) we've... More

The food was great and there was lots of it! Delicious vegan options and friendly service! We went for the chef's choice of pizza and tapas :) a really cosy little boat looking out on the harbour and it's got a lift so disabled diners can get downstairs.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I stepped foot down into the hull of this small boat on Harbourside but I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were lovely, there was a great choice of food which was all really fresh and flavoursome. Would recommend.

great location that could easily be overlooked - but don't !. Interesting selection of unusual beers, citrous IPA and vanilla coffee stout, delicious. Lots of tapas to choose from, we bought 5 between two people and that was plenty. Each tapas was a mini masterpiece. Don't leave without having a desert , we had peanut chocolate torte and mojito cheesecake... More

My girlfriend and I visited Under The Stars for dinner and were seated indoors. This is a beautiful setting for dinner - the candlelit interior of the boat along with the friendly service and fantastic food make it one of the most memorable evenings of the year. The ambiance is just the right mix of music and background noise. Would... More

I came here with my sister and we both really enjoyed the food. She is a vegetarian and still found that the menu was really varied, offering plenty of options for her. I love the setting, a small boat on the harbour-side. Very qwerky restaurant with lovely staff, will be returning!

Good food accommodating staff.. They were willing to turn off the music so that we could hear each other speak, .and almost no place will do that for you and the conversation was so much easier because of that. At the end of the meal they gave us individual checks for our lunches, again something most restaurants will not do!... More

The wife and I happened upon Under the Stars last Friday lunchtime whilst we were out shopping in town. We spent a pleasant hour there enjoyed our pizzas and I had a beer. Would we visit there again ? Yes we will again soon.
