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

We ate here with a couple of friends and had a lovely evening. We booked that day and managed to get in at 8. We were welcomed in to the bar/seating area to wait a few minutes for our table. Other diners were also waiting and the owner came over to talk us through the days specials. What a character... More

Arrived in scarborough to soggy, miserable conditions. As a result arrived at cafe fish quite soggy and damp. We were visiting scarborough purely because if the Groupon deal available at fish cafe, I bought this as a birthday meal for my bf 30th. We waited a few minutes in the door way, when our young server (male, didn't catch his... More

3 members of my family ate here recently. The restaurant is beautifully laid out & very clean. The staff who greeted us & served us made us feel very welcome. The menu is extensive, we chose the fish of the day & another fish dish with crab. We also had desserts (recommend!) The food arrived in good time, was beautifully... More
