We wanted to try this place on the day we arrived, unfortunately it was closed. So we had to wait till our last day as were only in Scarborough for 3 days. It was well worth it though! The food was lovely and all cooked fresh which adds to the flavour. I'm very particular when it comes to mushy peas but theirs were really nice. Not only is the food nice, the staff are really friendly and made us and our children feel really welcome. I would definitely eat there again. My only criticism is that they close too early! To avoid disappointment make a note.......they're open from 6am to 2pm.

We saw the board at the end of the Quay advertising Fish and Chips and decided to give it a try. A short walk along the Quay to the Harbour View Cafe and we ascended the steps to the cafe which was spotlessly clean. We took our seats and selected Hadock and Chips, served with peas, bread and butter and tea. We took in the view across the Harbour and a brilliant view of the castle. The quality of the fish and chips was absolutely superb, the service was excellent and the overall experience was what should be given in every eatery. Thanks for the best Fish and Chip meal that we have ever had.

We had lunch at Harbour View today. What a hidden gem this is! Tucked away on the pier near the RNLI, blink and you'll miss the signage! I felt a little dubious as we went up the untidy stairs but do not let this put you off! Great freshly cooked food and a very friendly welcome. The staff were more than happy to accomodate the needs of my 2 year old and 3 year old. Fantastic!

As usual the only wet days of half term were our camping trip! However, a very good day was had in Scarborough, the highlight being lunch at the Harbour View Cafe. Very friendly and particularly good with our kids, great food at reasonable prices (especially considering the fab view of the harbour). And to top if off when they realised we were running 69 miles along Hadrian's Wall for my son's charity, the Tuberous Sclerosis Association, they sponsored us! Can't say how much this means! I will certainly not be eating anywhere else in Scarborough!

We had a pushchair and a dog on an extremely busy weekend in Scarborough and never thought we would find a café where we could all sit down together but we did and it was this gorgeous café on the harbour. lovely views, very tasty home cooked fresh food and we sat on the balcony as a family enjoying the working harbour in the sunshine. The staff were all so helpful and made our meal one to remember.
