Had a couple of dinners here during a 2 week stay in Scarborough and both were great. Restaurant is indoor but overlooks the beach and had lovely views of the sunsets. Menu had plenty of choice, food was good and staff were really friendly and efficient. Prices were pretty much the same as other local restaurants.

Because Scarborough Beach is under construction/refurbishment, the Straits Café is not easily accessible. However, the staff are marvellous and this is one restaurant offering affordable food and terrific service. Park your car nearby and walk. It will be worth it!

We went at lunch time on a Saturday. It was almost empty, but the views were great except for the building site between us and the sea. We selected a couple of share platters, one meat and one seafood and they were both excellent.

I went to the previous incarnation of this restaurant at the Rendezvous hotel and it was OK but nothing special. I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by the revamped style of the restaurant. The decor was much improved, the food was very good and the view of the sun setting on the ocean was amazing. We... More

We had a chance to try the smorgasbord which was an Indian theme, adored it and wanted to keep tasting it. Also did a a carte and the service and food was top quality, had a young German waiter who took pride in his work

We booked a room at the hotel and didn't give much thought to the associated restaurant. We where pleasantly surprised with the service and quality of the food. We finished our stay with the continental breakfast the next morning to double check how good it was. We will definitely be back!

The food felt it was a pre mix powder (scrambled eggs) while the mushrooms and tomato was beyond bland. The sausages seemed cheap and very dry - was not able to eat any of my food - it was left on the table.

Enjoyed buffet breakfast every morning during our stay. Had a wide variety of food to choose from. Cereals, pancakes, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, croissants, fresh fruit & more. Also most importantly for me coffee. Great view of Scarborough Beach as we enjoyed our food.

5* = food 3* = service 1* = atmosphere & environment Delicious food that was hard to fault. Service that lacked warmth and character. And we felt that we were dining in the middle of the hotel foyer. Lighting is 'stark'... A shame because we wouldn't choose to return despite at $120 it representing some of the best value we've... More
