Visited with my partner on Sunday evening. William was helpful, charismatic and informative. We had the chowder starter....it was outstanding. Then we had lobster, crab and king prawn platter....again....outstanding. Waitress was lovely. A pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Families dining, also couples. If you are in any doubt of the freshness....we actually passed a man dropping off 2 live lobsters as we... More

Met by a very friendly owner, very well up on how his chef prepared a fantastic range of fish. Many specials on the board to choose from, landed that day and bought down the road at the fish market. Wonderful meal in a café, very close to the centre of town.

Fantastic restaurant in the centre of Scarborough, incredibly welcoming staff who strive to make the visit personal. Food is always amazing and very fresh fish.

Had one of those multiple course meals, staff were very nice think it was angelica maybe that served us. The food was stunning. The only thing that they could have done is stop some of the draughts as it was a little chilly. They did get a heater for us though so it more than made up for it.

If you like fish and are in Scarborough try this place. Food is spot on. When you order the owner takes your choices and will talk you through any thoughts or questions. Everything we picked was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Only down side from a typical big eating tight Yorkshire man is more would be better but as our... More

We were very taken with this restaurant. The welcome from the young lady who met us, was pleasant and friendly and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and the fresh fish. Decor was modern without being sparse and there was a nice distance between tables, giving everyone a degree of privacy. All our food was beautifully cooked and the... More

Love fish restaurants and this one didn't disappoint. Lovely welcoming atmosphere. The owner chatted to us about recommendations, which we appreciated. All staff were friendly and professional. The stuffed rolled sole in pastry was a delight (can't remember what it was called). The chowder starter was also delicious. Thank you all for a lovely evening.

Nice place to eat, relaxing atmosphere owner a bit of a character and very friendly. To me they are too keen to push dishes that aren't on the menu, I can understand them wanting to move product they may have had in the fridges for a few days as fish goes off quickly. Had some starters he recommended which were... More

I've been here twice, both times I've found the ambience good, friendly competent waitress and exciting sounding menu. The bread, butter & aioli on the table when you arrive is lovely. The scotch egg starter I tried was great. Unfortunately both times the main course has been a huge disappointment - microwaved bland vegetables (including to my horror, once probably... More

We went for dinner and were almost the only customers. It was really nice and quiet. Upon arriving, we were seated by the bar area; The chef came and sat down with us to discuss options. That was really nice. We said what we'd like and he made suggestions.. We ordered Oysters on ice - Mussels in a creamy white... More
