“Absolutly Brilliant”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We visited on my birthday the 15th of April and had a fantastic meal. We have visited Whiby many times and this was the first time we ever saw the sign for the RemeroJo's. We booked an early table as we took the kids and had the nicest Nacho's as a starter, often the toppings are slopped on but this was fresh tomatoes and onion with a sprinkling of sour cream, the chef who served us gave us a combination of chicken and beef with them, a perfect combination. I had Nico's nest with the chicken which was lovely, my son had a burger made just right for him (no toppings), my other boy had the fajhitas and my hubby the burritos. Everything was lovely although the only problem was we then had dessert of ice cream, We were so stuffed with the main couse this was just a little too much, very nice but I practically had to be rolled home. I would recommend them and can't wait until we visit Whitby next time.

“Better than fish & chips”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We visited on a wet bank holiday weekend with our 13 year old son who dosnt like anything
We worried that he wouldnt like anything on the menu but how wrong were we
The menu was fab from a range of latino countries we all found something nice
Ribs like fred flintstones filled the boy up with chips and salad followed by cinder toffee ice cream
Spicy beef fish rice veg all cooked perfectly.
The staff were fantastic and the chef poped out of the kitchen to make sure we were happy
Lovely atmosphere and a complimentary rum punch will definitely return on our next visit to whitby

Reviewed 21 May 2014

Went here a couple of weeks ago on holiday and was delighted by the delicious food, great service and complimentary pistachio nuts and shot of rum.

Will definitely go the next time I'm in Whitby

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Lovely fresh food, great service, a little hidden gem in the midst of the usual fish & chip shops/cafes/restaurants in Whitby. We will certainly be back again.
