Went here for a birthday meal. After a disappointing start (no Malbec or Merlot wine, and then no diet Coke) we had a very pleasant dining experience. The dining environment was nice. We were given complementary melon and mint soup which had delicately balanced flavours. Our main courses were baked crab which had been cooked to perfection allowing the herbs... More

Estbek house is not cheap, but if you want a memorable dining experience for a special occasion you should visit it if you are in the Whitby area. The service was impeccable and the food was faultless. To start I had the Whitby kipper paté, followed by the fillet steak (a substantial piece), and my friends and I shared several... More

Over the last couple of years, we have eaten at this restaurant several times – the most recent visit being last night. We have been suitably impressed at each visit. Estbeck is run by a lovely couple and a handful of professional yet friendly staff. The attention to detail is excellent. The quality of food is outstanding - focusing heavily... More

We had a lovely meal. 2 starters, 2 mains, a glass of sparkling wine and complementary sparkling water cost £80. I think it should have been closer to £50-60. Sstarter of smoked salmon was quite small portion. Good service and nice food but felt expensive for what it was.

Just had a great meal here. We stayed at the nearby Raithwaite Hall and having read previous reviews thought we'd try this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent if a little expensive but there are little extras you don't get in all restaurants. The atmosphere was good, the service excellent and the food exceptional. Would definitely recommend... More

Went for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed - food was great and some really special wines there also. We tried their lobster and also a fillet of hake. Both were excellent. Really recommend this place for a special occasion!

We stayed one night here in a freezing December. The service was exceptional. The staff were knowledgeable and courteous - even to my noisy relatives who joined us for dinner. The seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. The rooms are small but warm, spotless, well-equipped and comfortable. A minor gripe was no hot water in the washbasin taps and a... More

Stayed here and enjoyed two superb meals. Dining is in two charming small rooms. Service really good and the dishes are top class and very tasty with most being seafood from the area. The seafood pie is actually a stack/mould of lobster, crayfish, scallops and more and quite superb. Other highlights were the cod fillet and scallop chowder. The local... More
