This restaurant is lovely, the food is excellent serving fresh well presented seafood, but unfortunately no one ever returns because the owner wont leave you alone and talks to you while your eating, shame!!!!

eaten here few times when in scarborough and always enjoyed the fish dish. However on this occasion the meal was poor quality and seemed to have been hurried put together and not the usual high quality, maybe chef is different as really only average and only just so, service was good tho.

Booked a table at 8pm didn't get seated till 20 mins after our booking time. The owner stated it wasn't his problem and there isn't a booking system in place as everyone books at 8pm I appreciate it was a Saturday night but we had pre booked and there were at least 3 tables free when we did get shown...

Went here last week for an evening meal and would highly recommend it. Seafood chowder was superb. Very reasonable deal of starter and main for £20 given how good both of them were. Excellent, friendly service too. Well worth a visit

Enjoyed a very pleasant couple of hours here. Everyone we met was friendly and efficient and the place was smart and well cared for. The food, all really good, between us we had chowder, scallops and Oysters Kilpatrick, couldn't fault anything. Undoubtedly one of the best places to eat in town.

Visited cafe fish 19th of November.. Such a lovely place and the food was amazing. Pity about the miserable woman opposite us moaning to the staff loudly about her prawns needed garlic butter and wouldn't stop going on.. She spoilt the atmosphere throughout the restaurant... The girls handled her very well.. Some people are so horrible... Felt for the waitresses.... More

Left booking until last minute and nearly missed out. We foolishly thought that it would be easy to book a table in October. Wrong. This is a very popular restaurant and it's easy to see why. The food was delicious and the staff extremely helpful and welcoming. Just hope I can book a table for December.

A quality seafood restaurant - not your usual chipping any means. The service was a bit clunky but front of house was probably understaffed. The food was superb and very reasonably priced for the quality.

We planned to eat here early on a Monday evening and hoped that we wouldn't need to book. Fortunately we didn't! We met the owner in the bar who was charming and chatted about his exploits, both recent and in the more distant past. Very entertaining man! I followed his recommendation for dinner and it was excellent. The chowder was... More
