Established in 1910, The Star Hotel is as popular as ever, and it is easy to see why, with its comforting Basque cuisine and lively atmosphere. Changing hands between many Basque families over the years, its current owners, Scott and Tricia Ygoa, continue the tradition of serving tasty family-style fare, and creating a friendly environment. Open for lunch and dinner, guests can try the grilled chicken or New York steak piled high with garlic, or even sautéed prawns. Making sure that everyone leaves truly content, each entrée comes with soup, salad, bread, Basque beans, pasta, vegetables and fries, finishing with coffee or tea. A variety of sweet treats are also available, as well as the famous Picon Punch, a pre-dinner drink.
