Superb sea food

We went to Café Fish in Scarborough for my birthday June 2015. A lovely menu with all the fish caught or supplied locally. Our party had Hake, Scallops, Sea Bass, and a lovely mixed dish starter. All was excellent. This is an unassuming restaurant, unlike the proprietor who is a genial host... read more

We visited here during the spring bank holiday week. It was amazing. We were greeted by very polite staff. The menu offered an abundance of choice. We had the seafood tasting menu at £85 per couple with a bottle of the house champagne. Everything was absolutely outstanding and great value for money. William, the owner, is very welcoming. It was... More

wow is all that can describe this establishment, it was fantastic, even though I had a chicken dish, my husband and friends all chose different meals from me we all enjoyed them, and the waitress was very well informed on each dish, she is a credit to the restaurant. We will definitely be booking a table there again.

Third time at Cafe Fish. Delicious. Oysters on ice followed by Lemon Sole stuffed with lobster and crayfish. My friend raved about her seafood chowder.

We booked a table for 3 at 7:45 but sat down to eat at 9:00. I have eaten here 3 times previously but have had enough of professional buffoon, William. To be told that no chips are available as his chef hadn't turned up is pathetic. Since when did chefs prepare chips? William said he'd have to peel them himself.... More

This restaurant looks welcoming from the outside and the inside decor is attractive and sparkling. Scarborough should be a great location to eat fish so we were anticipating good food. First the positive is that the house champagne, which I understand is sourced directly from a small champagne house, is exceptionally good and great value for money. The service, at... More
