Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Arrived to a full care but the last serving managed to squeeze us in which we were grateful for. We both ordered the full breakfast with drinks. The full breakfast comes with either poached, scrambled or fried eggs. We were not asked which we wanted...so I asked for lightly cooked scrambled eggs as I do like them slightly runny. Whilst waiting it was hard not to notice the number of flies in the cafe. I know it's above the fish market but it was very distracting and there was at least 15. When the breakfast arrived there wasn't scrambled eggs but there was overcooked fried eggs. The bacon was extremely overcooked and was very salty. The hash Brown's were overcooked they were just much inside. The same for the beans. The lady serving was nice and we heard her say that she was on her own so we didn't mention anything. The cafe was very full and we'd waited quite a long time for the food to come as it's freshly cooked so we didn't want to wait for a replacement. I've looked at other photos that people have posted and their breakfast looks fabulous. Unfortunately for us on this day it was very disappointing.More

To see my wife’s face light up as we entered the Harbour Cafe on or recent trip to Scarborough, was a joy. She hadn’t been in over 52 years, when she was a small child. She instantly ordered a Knickerbocker Glory , as it was...her favourite all those years ago. She said it tasted exactly the same “ Fabulous “. The American ice cream parlour theme is marvellous, and the staff are excellent!! I had the largest ice cream I’ve ever seen!! And wonderful value. Highly recommend and we will definitely be going back to rekindle those happy memories.More

Discovered this place a couple of months ago when we first moved to Scarborough, managed to make it up the stairs and inside this time. Great views overlooking the harbour and the seafront. Quite spacious inside complete with a balcony to sit on when the...weather is good. Dog friendly. Good choice of breakfasts at a decent price and plenty on the plate. Had a bacon bap which was full of bacon and nicely cooked just how I like it. Staff are attentive, friendly and chatty. Great place for the locals! See you again.More

Am visited for breakfast, myself my two little girls and two frenchies, we sat outside on the balcony and it was beautiful. The staff are lovely very friendly and welcoming, service at our table , I ordered two extra sausages for my dogs , these...came out chopped up and in their own dog bowls . My youngest ordered beans in toast and a sausage , fantastic portion and she was happy , my oldest ordered a sausage sandwich, she said the bread was nice , and she’s fussy about sausage she ate every bit of sausage. I ordered the avocado and egg on toast the egg yolk was bright and beautiful the avocado was delicious with a slight chill kick perfect . I can’t recommend this cafe enough ! The coffee was lovely as well . I little bit of heaven in a very busy place/ beach front.More

All show no knickers I am afraid to say. Lovely staff, fresh food, great chips, peas and home made tarter sauce. Query why oh do all restaurants want to cut bread into triangles very odd. Anyway nice fresh bread and nice butter. Spotlessly clean and...well presented. Plus great views of the harbour. However, the fish. Was 80% batter and a tad greasy but very crispy and 20% fish. A bit disappointed to be honest. We went small fish dinner and for 2 it was £22 which I thought was a good price as it included everything apart from the fish! But what fish we could find was very nice. There was other stuff on menu which we saw come out which looked very nice. But for a regular visitor to Scarborough it was a nice new find. We will be back to try other items plus very doggy friendlyMore

Nice spot out on the pier which has been done really nice on the inside. Friendly staff and good selection of options for lunch - from simple sandwiches or jacket potatoes to fish and chips and seafood. All in all a good lunch with a...view for a reasonable price.More

Had breakfast here, very tasty and much cheaper than many others around. Only problem is you’re charged £1 for each extra you want on breakfast so can bump up the price. I had fisherman’s breakfast which includes 2 of everything with 1 bread & butter...or toast, beverages extra. Service good and staff friendly. Will definitely be eating here again. I feel mushrooms and drink should be standard in full English and not an extra.More

A great little find! We stayed in North Yorkshire for a week and enjoyed some lovely meals out, lunch at this restaurant was probably the best of the lot. The location is great, you really can look out and watch the food being landed right...in front of you! The range and quality of the dishes looks very good, certainly the seafood we tried was delicious and good value for money. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Bearing in mind the quality and size of the dishes, the food is also good value for money. Whilst the premises aren’t huge you never feel cramped at all. All in all a great place to try for top quality seafood.More
