I absolutely adore Lone Star. If you have the opportunity to eat out come here. The service is brilliant and food is delicious. I really enjoy coming here and do so at every opportunity

The view of the marina is lovely. Great service and the food was delicious. I ordered the Apache Fish but swapped the chips for mashed potato. The home made tartare sauce was to die for. I will be eating here again when I next travel to Gisborne.

Food was very good, service was also very good. View across the harbour is interesting with a good selection of pleasure boats in the foreground.

They are mouth-watering and adequate. Unfortunately, on the October visit, the restaurant manager decided he wanted very loud music in the bar during mid-evening meal times. As a couple, we struggled... More

This is my wife's favorite restaurant. We both love the food. But today, it was a terrible experience. First we were asked to sit at the bar to wait a table. But when we sat, we saw that there were plenty of empty tables. Still, we ordered our drinks, and waited. In less than 10 min. we were taking to... More
