This is our third visit to this restaurant, we always make it one of the highlights of our stay in Scarborough. We didn't book this time but as we were early we got a great table for the four of us by the bay window. The food was cooked beautifully as on our previous visits, waitress was lovely and extremely... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were delighted they did. 6 of us arrived and we were seated in the small bar area, served drinks and our orders taken. We were quickly shown to our table and the food arrived in good time. A variety of starters were chosen including mussels, Thai fishcakes with Haddock Kiev, Crab Melts, Chowder.... More

Friendly welcome by the owner, William, and then into a lovely bright eating area. I had Monkfish with Scallops on stir-fried vegetables with a green salad, Just a wonderful experience on a sunny Sunday evening. Two of us, two courses with wine came to about £70.

I am a visitor from Nottinghamshire and have taken breaks in Scarborough for the past 8 years and have only just found Cafe Fish after my best friend had a meal there about 6 weeks ago. What a find! I'm not very adventurous with fish dishes but went along with my friend's choice and William added a mackerel pate as... More

This was a visit planned on the reviews from this very site. Save to say it was well worth the visit; indeed, we promptly made a booking for the following evening. Both visits were excellent in terms of food and the geniality of the owner and the staff. Yes, the owner is a bit of a character but at least... More

Visited on the 19th, as always the front of house was well informed and attentive without being intrusive. I chose the mackerel pate followed by the monkfish and salmon risotto rounded of with the Yorkshire cheese board. Everything was well prepared and presented. I ate early to avoid the rush and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. I have never been... More

A Groupon evening was a success for my wife's 60th. Mein host met us and we were welcomed with a glass of Prosseco. I understand that the Groupon offer is to continue which makes this offer truly excellent. Food was good,though champagne by the glass was offered but sadly unavailable! It was a good warm evening and the several courses... More
