After having one bad meal last year at this restaurant which made both myself and my wife ill (suspect the chowder), we thought we would give it one last chance during a recent business trip. I wish we hadn't, pretty much everything on the menu was not available and the owner promised to prepare something special for us. Crab thermidor... More

We were warmly welcomed by a very nice lady and greeted by the owner,who sat down and went out of his way to make sure we had the perfect dish to suit us both.He pretty much re- designed a starter platter for us to share, which was perfectly cooked in the most delicious dressing i have ever tasted!.The main course...

One of the best meals I have had in Scarborough. The seared scallops felt fresh out of the sea and was the juiciest I've tasted so far. Had seafood chowder for starter. Every spoonful was filled with richness and taste. I'm not sure if it's family ran but the service was top notch and everyone was very friendly.

We've been to Cafe Fish numerous times and never been disappointed. This time we were there using a Groupon voucher and the food was as impressive as everl. William is a real character and greeted us by telling us they were short staffed and not to expect feeding soon - at least he's honest! We sat in the bar area... More

I am giving this 1 star because I cannot give it zero. We booked our meal with groupon, a fish platter and prosecco which sounded great and booked it for my birthday meal thinking it would be a special treat. We had Car issues On the way and called up to say we would be late when we were told... More

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

What a place. The restaurant is very reminiscent of how customers should be looked after. 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
