Unique little fresh seafood restaurant!

We visited cafe fish last night, as we had seen it on tripadvisor and it seemed rather different to regular fish and chips that you can get in Scarborough.

Arrived ignored for twenty minutes past booking time. Asked if there was a wait time very politely. Publically humiliated by William the owner. First time I have been here. Not the kind of service you expect. He could have just said they were running late which would have been fine. Never go again, would not recommend. Ended up going for... More

Having read previous reviews we were looking forward to eating at this restaurant, unfortunately in our view the food was not as good As we had hoped. There is no doubt that William the owner is very welcoming and the waitress is lovely. The starters were tasty. My main meal was not very good and I left most of it.... More

We have eaten in here a few times and the quality of the food is very good. They do not always have everything that is on the menu but what is available is fresh and well cooked. Decent service and not too expensive.
