Amazing fish restaurant

You are greeted by the owner, William, who will show you to the lounge area. We don't bother looking at the menu because William will always tell you what fresh fish he has got that day and make suggestions as to how he could prepare it. He has never failed us yet. I had the sole stuffed with... read more

Visited here with friends on our weekend in Scarborough. The owner explained the catches of the day to us and how they would be cooked and was happy to make some changes for us. The Mushroom soup was too rich which spoilt the main course for me, however, the mussels were enjoyed as was the seafood chowder platter. We ordered,... More

Booked in Cafe Fish for an early birthday treat, as we had planned to go somewhere else for my Birthday night. Well as expected the food, atmosphere service were all excellent. I even ate oysters (tried them a couple years ago from a little shack, wasn't keen). But, William suggested having them with a little splash of vodka. Loved them,... More

I persuaded my partner to go here, (Saturday 28th), as I had really enjoyed my first visit some time ago. The food was wonderful, as was the service - extremely friendly and professional. All members of staff really looked after everyone, even a group of people who looked like they had inadvertently got the wrong restaurant! The owner seemed very... More

Went on 28 March. The locally caught lobster was fantastic as were the starters and puddings. Well worth a visit for a special night out.
