We were recommended to come here for breakfast and were glad we did. The entrance is a bit out of the way up some stairs but once inside the two waitresses/cooks were very friendly. The cafe is used by local fishermen and the food was great, especially the breakfast omelettes. Don't expect anything swish but the view across the harbour... More

Very friendly atmosphere and the fish, which was superb, is cooked fresh to order with the chips, which looked hand cut. Two plates of large fish & chips, peas and buttered bread for £14!!!

This was the second time of eating here. The first time we had homemade soup which was delicious. This time we had the full English breakfast with toast and a pot of tea - £5 each and well worth it. I couldn't finish mine as it was so big. However the quality was excellent. The restaurant is very clean and... More

My husband and myself and two friends had an enjoyable lunch here. We sat out on the balcony as we had the dogs with us. The fish and scampi were very good and the staff were so helpful!

Visited here last bank holiday Sunday, Upon ordering we were spoken to like an inconvenience, everything we ordered was greeted like it was a trouble to order such foods Once seated we were told to move, not even asked! Wouldn't go back here if they paid me to eat.

Seeing that all the usual "Fish n Chip" places were busy, we noticed the harbour view café, about 50 metres from the arcades, thought we should investigate and what a find! The best fish n chips, in the friendliest café in Scarborough, not to mention great views of the harbour! We visited twice during Easter week and the second visit... More
