Best fish and chips in Scarborough!

I've been visiting Scarborough since I was a girl and have eaten fish and chips many times in different restaurants and cafes but this is the best I have eaten for long time...great friendly service and fish cooked to order ....not to mention wonderful views over the harbour.

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

After first visiting The Harbour View Café, my husband and I have become frequent customers. The moment you walk in the staff greet you like a special friend. The food is all of the best quality (I have seen the eggs being delivered from a local farm) and beautifully cooked individually all for a very reasonable price. The views from... More

Visited this time last year, just as good. Good service, home made chips and top rate battered haddock. A bargain at £7

This is a very nice cafe with good wholesome food. We went in Feb with another couple and their dog, so we had to sit on the balcony. The view from there of the old town is lovely. We all had haddock and chips and our friends declared it superb. Can't complain about that!

Great little cafe in unique location. Home made food at good prices. We always buy a full english or breakfast butty to be honest because we go early before going out to sea fishing. Real traditional English cafe. Great little place but remember it is on fish quay so watch your step!
