“We will be back!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We went last night based solely on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor as the restaurant doesn't have a web site. We are so pleased we did! This is no fancy stylishly decorated place, so the excellent reviews are purely based on the quality of the food, as they should be. We ordered the two daily specials on the recommendation of our superb waitress and we were not disappointed; the food was to a tremendous high standard. We ordered a bottle of Viognier which was also superb and reasonably priced. We were even more pleasantly surprised when the bill came. If you enjoy seafood this is the place to go.
We live near The Crab and Lobster, Asenby, which has a good reputation. However, we both agreed the food we had at Cafe Fish was better than anything we have had at The Crab, and half the price. We will definitely be back when we are next in Scarborough.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Booked a table here on a Sunday night after reading reviews on here. Was pleased that we had! Food was fantastic and the owner was very helpful, explaining the menu and what was fresh that day. Would agree with a previous review that it was a little cold in the restaurant but then again it was a very cold night! Would definatly return when next in scarborough!

“Great experience”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Arrived for a meal on Jan 19th, the welcome was superb,excellent advice from the owner and quality food from the chef.
The service was first class.
The only negative was that the room was cold,it was a cold night but it's a big room and there was no radiators, just a plugged in heater which didn't do much good
I would certainly return in the summer !

“Supporting Scarborough”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Based on Trip Advisor we decided to book a table - not long back from our meal in fact. The don't have a wteb site but I think their reviews on here & pure reputation should be enough for anyone to book a table and enjoy a wonderful meal.
The fish & seafood is fresh - Bill the owner selects it & collects it from the h's notarbour each day - so if its not there then its not on the menu.
Bill was honest - no lobster or large prawns - but have to say his recommendations were spot on.
Waitress good - checking back if all was ok & gave a very warm greeting on our arrival.
Yes we were for a while the only customers but its mid week in January so we were just thrilled it was open and we could have fresh local seafood in Scarborough.
