It's been 6 years since visiting and everything is still fabulous. Greeted by William he advised us of what was available and even put little extras on my plate of half lobster and scallops like 3 very large prawns. Service was very good and staff kind and attentive. A fabulous meal and nothing too much trouble. As I looked round... More

Loved this quaint little cafe full of character! Had "drunken cod with goats cheese". Delicious fresh meal. Had a lovely dessert of warm cherries and ice cream with a coffee and handmade chocolate too to complete . Love these little touches and fish so fresh. Would definitely go back !

The modest exterior belies a great destination for fish-lovers inside. The host was very welcoming and added to the evening. Beautiful chowder and what a shame we only stopped for a light bite. I hope to return.

We dined here two nights in a row on a recent visit to Scarborough -- the food was just that good! The first evening, we were disappointed that sole and oysters had sold out. The proprietor, William, consoled us with an off-the-menu dinner tailored to our tastes! He promised us he'd have what we wanted the following evening, and he... More

Café Fish doesn't shout about itself from outside, just a couple of wee signs over the door, but don't let the simple exterior put you off. Inside is a lovely airy doing room that has a really comfortable feeling. We were greeted by a rather eccentric chap who I presumed to be the owner, he certainly knew the menu inside... More

Lovely welcoming atmosphere food fresh, tasty and well presented. We booked a couple of weeks before though as we heard it was extremely popular. The chowder was amazing the best I've tasted. Very nice restaurant A+

Enjoyed oysters and the lobster platter. The oysters were amazing and my partner loved them as well. The lobster and crayfish dish did lack a little imagination with presentation but my partner enjoyed it. Excellent quality seafood- very fresh - a little more choice in the menu especially with the crab would be nice.

If you can bypass the attentions of the owner who loves attention and can be very sarcastic, the food is fabulous. The best mussels I have tasted.

Cannot wait to re-visit this restaurant. William is attentive and amusing! Looks after all his customers and very informative. All staff very friendly and efficient. Food was so nicely presented and tasteful. A large menu choice of fresh fish and seafood.
