Friendly and decent food

We arrived a little later than 'last orders' but they let us sit anyway. Preparation took only 15-20 min but we filled that time with wine and complementary bread/olives. The food isn't traditional Spanish but it'd call it "Tapas Inglesas" (English tapas), it's quite good nonetheless. Also, the... read more

Visited this restaurant twice whilst staying in Scarborough last week. The food was excellent on both occasions. The staff were very polite and friendly. This restaurant is also very good if you are on a gluten free diet.

This is a nice Italian restaurant at the top of Scarborough, and although the menu is only small the meals are freshly cooked. I wasn't impressed with the presentation but the meal was very nice and tasty. Prices was very reasonable and we all enjoyed our experience. I cannot rate it above average for it needs a lift with the... More

Let's be honest, Scarborough these days is a dump and the hotel across the road from this restaurant - The Grand Hotel - is also a dump! So, I wasn't expecting too much from this restaurant, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. The place is quite well laid out and has a good ambience. The waiter who served... More

A very pleasant and family friendly restaurant with a traditional Italian menu and well prepared freshly cooked food which was of a high standard and very good value. We thought that it was a little gem. Do note however that it is cash only - no credit cards - although there are several cash machines nearby. Would recommend.

We got there early evening,and the place was already reasonably busy,which I find is always a good sign. Waiters were very pleasant. I ordered risotto primavera as a starter,which came with asparagus and parmesan shavings as well as the usual green veg. This was very good indeed,risotto is easily spoiled by bad timings. Main course was a skewer of SeaBass... More
