We have visited this restaurant for lunch on several occasions and always enjoyed the experience. The food has always been delicious and the location, right on the harbour side, is wonderful. We were at the Marine again this week in a party of four, who all ordered the same meal - seafood chowder, followed by Whitby crab sandwiches and hand-cut chips. The food, as usual, was very good. However, we all felt that the portions of seafood chowder were very small and we were not offered any bread to accompany the dish. Whilst the chowder was in itself very acceptable, we did not think that it was good value for money. We were also disappointed with the service because, having cleared our main course plates, the waiter did not ask whether we wanted sweets or coffees. Furthermore, we were totally ignored, until one member of our party managed to make eye contact with a waiter and ordered our coffees.
We were a little disappointed with The Marine this week but, because we have always enjoyed our lunches there in the past, we hope that we just caught the restaurant on a bad day, and will definitely give it another try.
