We ate here for our anniversary. Never been before so just picked because it looked good and my wife loves fish. It was really busy but the boss man-William-made everybody at ease with his wit. My wife had oysters to start and I had the thai fish cakes both were excellent then she picked one of the fish meals but... More

William the owner did his usual meet and greet bit which can be a bit overbearing if you just want you and your partners company. The other front of house staff are both very pleasant and efficient. There was just one other party when we arrived at 5.30pm so the chef could hardly have been stretched. Our main course of... More

You are genuinely looked after from the moment you step in with a very warm welcome and friendly conversation. The atmosphere is superb and the facilities are great. We had a 10 week old baby and the care given to us to help breastfeeding and... More

Amazing food. We went while visiting England with two Brits and we all loved this place. Everything we order was wonderful and the owner had us immediately all laughing with his gregarious, warm and welcoming nature. Highlight of our trip.

We bought a Groupon Voucher for £39 for a Seafood Platter for Two with Prosecco, then after reading some of the reviews we were a bit wary about going. On arrival we were sat in the bar area and given a lovely glass of Prosecco whilst we looked at the menu's. The owner then welcomed us and explained that it... More

We booked with the Groupon deal as were new to Scarborough (or, at least, I was!) and were unsure where was nice to eat. I would wholeheartedly recommend Cafe Fish for even those who are coolly indifferent to seafood. Not only is the owner an absolute delight(really, just an excellent man, he gets 5* himself!) all the staff are lovely...... More

the welcome is friendly and the menu vast, the manager sits and takes the order from you then you are seated at the table, they cook it fresh for you and you can tell that, best to book a table as not so big, but a great time had by all
