“Excellent evening”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

A quiet Monday evening in March - looked through TripAdvisor for suggestions for dinner. Some of the best reviews were for Cafe Fish and how right they were. The restaurant was quiet but the welcome, and the open fire, was warm. I'm not going to describe the food - go & find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed. We'll be back next time we're in Scarborough...

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Lovely airy restaurant with an great big fire in the hearth (it was an evening in March, which can be a bit chilly). Very extensive menu and a bit special. The presentation was lovely and we could not fault the quality or the quantity of the food. It was week cooked and a sheer joy to eat, bit of a shame to spoil the look of each dish by eating it!!! The fish cake starter is to be recommended, and also the chowder, but don't have a full portion, as you'll not do justice to your main course if you do! We were too full for desserts, but next time - watch out! And the price was not too hefty either, which was a really pleasant surprise. Definitely one to visit again.

“Bit disappointing!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We came here on a sat night in early march. Firstly had no beer on tap only bottles. Fishcakes were like processed mcnuggets! Had duet of sole off specials menu looked good well presented and seasoned but was advertised as been stuffed with lobster but was clearly crayfish an inferior substute. Nice all the same but disappointing. Maybe some people may of not realized the difference but iam a local chef! They need to be careful there is trading standards who do check this kind of thing. Definitely room for improvement. Good service and friendly front of house staff with knowledge of menu item a bonus though
