“Nice food but slow service”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

we enjoyed the food that came out but its overpriced and came out sporadically and slowly. Okay if you're happy to just sit around and wait for the things you've ordered and if you don't mind eating at different times to your friends.

“Great views, great food, great service!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Visited the Straits Café within the Rendezvous Grand Hotel with the hubby and little toddler over lunch time.
It was surprisingly quiet (we were a bit early) at first but more guests arrived while we had lunch.
Great views over the ocean. Very attentative staff members who made sure our little one gets his meal first before he starts complaining.
As we were quite early we could only choose from all day menu that offered limited but good choices.
We had a burger and a Caesar Salad and were very happy with our meals.
We will definitely return.

“Wonderful find - a renewed Gem”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Visited the Straits Cafe / Restaurant at Observation City in Scarborough for the first time for years looking for somewhere with good food and quiet enough for simple conversation.
It was brilliant. I had the best piece of snapper I've had in years, mouthwateringly tender. My friends also commented very favourably on their meals.
The service was outstanding and appropriate, the venue and views first class. For maybe $2 more per plate than some of the loud 'trendy' places around with plastic tables and chairs, we found ourselves in a whole new world of comfort and service.
We will definitely be back

“Give it a try”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We stayed at the Rendezvous so tried Straits on Saturday night. We found the service excellent and the food very good. I had a steak that was cooked to perfection and well presented. The only real complaint was I should have received a complimentary red wine with the steak but this was not offered. I realized after the event so on check out this was rectified. Would go there again.
