“Great Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Great little cafe overlooking the harbour. Don't be put off by the iron steps to the first floor, this is definitely worth a visit. The fish and chips were cooked to order and were excellent and at 2 meals for £10 fantastic value. The staff were friendly and welcoming too.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was the best fish and chips we have ever had in Scarborough. Big portion and really good value. Beautiful fresh fish with crispy batter and the best chips on the East Coast! (Apparently the breakfasts are great too) You must visit the Harbour View before going anywhere else - its better and cheaper than those on the main promenade.Dont get drawn in by anywhere else! Overlooks the harbour, behind the lifeboat house above the fish market. Highly recommended.

“Very tasty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend were visiting for the day and decided to go for dinner we looked up on trip advisor to find the best place to eat. We seen this cafe was number 1 so we decided to give it a go. The staff were very friendly and the cafe was nice and warm after being out in the cold. We ordered fish and chips with bread and butter and I can honestly say its the best fish and chips I have ever had so tasty! If we are in the area again we will definitely be back really good value for money too! Thankyou

“No 1 place to go for fish n chips in Scarborough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We visited Scarborough the first weekend in January and my hubby checked out the Trip Advisor website to look for a good restaurant for the Saturday night. He came across the Harbour View Cafe. We decided to give it a try on the Sunday for a fish & chip lunch before travelling home. We have been coming to Scarborough for day trips, long weekends and holidays for many years and in all that time have never tasted fish and chips quite like they serve at this Cafe, along with a very welcoming friendly service and fantastic value for money there's no way we will go anywhere else. The best opinion came from our six year old daughter, she described the F & C's as "DIVINE"!!!! and was happy to tell the staff so before we left! See you again soon.
