I don't understand why this place is so popular? I've eaten here twice, last time was 2 years ago, the fish was off, the veg sparse, tired and overcooked. I have visited again recently, thinking maybe I went on a bad night?, well I didn't,...More

Thought I'd have the fish again but having viewed the new menu the 'wold chicken and king prawn' dish excelled. In the words of Arnie...I will be back! Hasta la vista Will.

We were thinking of visiting tonight or tomorrow, so Sunday 16th or Monday 17th October, but do you serve fish caught on the day? Just wondering as if served caught from the harbour on the day we'll wait until Monday.

We have visited cafe fish on several occasions, it is one of the things that keeps us coming back to Scarborough, cannot understand these bad reviews, we have alway been treated really well by the staff, even when we have been "walk ins". Looking forward to our next visit

We are at a concert at the spa on saturday 12 June at 730. How far are you from the spa ? Would a 530 reservation be ok for us to be at the spa for just after 7pm ? Table would be for 2 people. Many Thanks, Margaret

Hello there , We are about 10 mins walk from the spa , therefore 5:30pm would give you enough time . Would you like me to book you in ? Kind regards , Angelika and Cafe FishbTeam
