Another two very enjoyable visits. Haddock Scotch Egg followed by Black Bream, and Fish filled pancakes with Dover Sole for a main. As always everything was cooked to perfection and presentation was spot on. In the absence of William Angelika maintained the usual high standards front of house. Don't miss the chance to visit if you are in the area.... More

The food here is gorgeous, extremely tasty & well presented. I have a shellfish allergy & the chef came out specifically to talk to me about the food I had ordered which was really unexpected & really appreciated. I had the Thai fishcakes to start & the Spanish salmon with chorizo & sandfire stir-fry it was very moist & extremely... More

Friendly staff, swift service, lots of choice. Great. The cod Kiev was a particular favourite for our group, it accompanied the chowder. The rarebit was excellent too. We came back two days later for a repeat helping!

William - the eccentric and highly entertaining genial patron - has the customers in stitches within minutes of entering the restaurant. A true raconteur, he regales them with his fishy tales and relaxes them in the convivial ambiance. The variety of seafood extravaganza is scrumptious with the oysters soaked in vodka highly recommended along with the monkfish and Dover sole.... More

Great food and service, really enjoyable, definitely recommend. Best scallops I've had in a while, all the fish dishes beautifully cooked and the steak wasn't bad either.

a good sized family gathering from infants to pensioners enjoyed excellent fish (and a few meat dishes) in this very highly respected restaurant. One thing I would say is, don't be put off asking for what you want by the pleasant but blunt and slightly brusque host. "I've been doing this since 1974 and I know what's best" is fine... More

Such a lovely restaurant! The fish was absolutely to die for and the atmosphere was down to earth and friendly. We were talked through the menu with the owner of the restaurant before we were seated and the service was great. Could not recommend this restaurant more!

The seafood was absolutely delicious, we had fresh seabream on the bone which had been caught that day. The hosts were lovely and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. The best restaurant in Scarborough.

Really impressed with the place. I'm not normally a big seafood fan, but had to try this place based on a lot of strong reviews. The decor is light and refreshing, as is the atmosphere. The owner/manager spent about 15 minutes sat with the eight of us in the waiting area to talk through some of the dishes, recommendations and... More

A fantastic place for a taste of the sea, or something else if someone in your party isn't a fan of seafood. I can highly recommend the oysters. There's a personal service and caring feel to the place. Whilst it's not the cheapest place to eat, for this quality, it's amazing value.
