  • manham hill fish shop great
  • Red Dragon on Falsgrave Road all you can eat for 5.95 last time I went on a week day (before 9pm I think)
  • rendesvous cafe . watch out for pickpockets
  • Sorrento. Columbus Ravine. The best italian restaurant in Yorkshire if not in England. Friendly and doesn't cost a fortune.

  • never use em
  • best places to eat include little jacks a great combo florios for a super calzone flames on huntriss row tuna and sweetcorn rocks but the best food in scarborough has to be a russian slice from cooplands the seafront cafe on marine drive under the clifton hotel not the cafe del mar the other original one make a great hot dog burger chips hot chocolate and the views are the best

  • Scarborough Arms, anything on the menu is gorgeous
  • MCD'S
  • Renards fish and chips have saved many a lazy students life
  • Peppers is always good!
  • Icon Pizza Brilliant food !!!!!!!!!!!!
  • yes pleas
  • 4 pizzas cooked 2 perfection go down mcdonalds st keep goin an if u r walkin towards the sea on your right is a small pizza place pizzas about 2 me tinks they r d best pizzaz i eva had
  • Tuscany 2 is the best restaurant in Yorkshire. No bull. Florios has crap service, food okay if you don't mind being scowled at.
  • maccy d's
  • maccy d's
  • obviously maccyd's burga king
  • Best Pub Food in/around Scarborough - massive portions, REAL home made FANTASTIC CHIPS, fresh & varied vegetables - and reasonably priced - THE DENISON ARMS in East Ayton (on the Pickering Road out of Scarborough) - I travel all the way from York for my lunch here as many times as I can! Fish & Chips - Forget Scarborough, Filey has the best beaches and Fish & Chip shops - visit Janet in The Fish Restaurant and Inghams are two of the best !
  • Baxters used to be the best fish n chip takeaway, although Golden Grid is good for your 'sit down' variety. But a cup of Bovril at the Harbour Bar, always served with a jacobs cream cracker with marge on it, is very hard to beat!!! Class.
  • Agian the are tons of Take aways Kebab Land, Mr T's, Pizza tempo, Pizza expres, deals...well you get the idea there are tons.
  • Best and Worst. BEST Spice Lobster, Kam Sang . WORST Giannis. (Food can be good but the owner is awful and rude)
  • KAM SANG!!!!!!!! Nother marine rd, thur, fri, sat lunch time three courses for a fiver, usually leaves u bloated!
  • The Florios place is okay for Pizza, but if you order any of the chicken dishes its actualy from marks and Spencer cooked by mr BO the owner!
  • burger king. (bring back KFC)
  • chubbies, deals, plenty of chinese take-aways, a few indians on queen street, macdonalds (lol) florios, tricolo's and gianni's are italian restaurants.
  • Another place to eat in Scarborough. Please visit: and enjoy good food. Thank you for your time and welcome to the restaurant, Robert
  • McDonalds, boiger king, italian takeaways, greasy cafes
  • Tuscanys is the ONLY decent restaurant.
  • Cammies is the only place after a drunken night out, where everything is "thats 3.50 for you". Or if your extremely lucky and female, just smile and its free! McDonalds is good if you like dirt,kids, and staff who quite frankly scare the sh*t out of me.
  • I have to say Icon is amazing check out there Falafel, I swear it is the nicest thing I have eaten
  • oddly enough got that too
  • Kam sang is QUALITY
  • Tuscanys, Jools, Hong Kong, Kam Sang - all nice restaurants. Tricolos - shite restaurant. Pizza Express - No,no thank youuuu. Deals - Worst Pizzas ever.
  • The Arcanto Itallian bakery on Huntriss Row - pizzas are better than any take away in Scarborough. Florio's is ok for pizzas, but pasta meals are nothing special (and one of the chef's stinks of BO, putting you completely off your food if you sit on one of those tables near the kitchen!! - yes it is that strong!). Kam Sang is cool, also that chinese take away on Castle Road near itis itis. Zabbi's for burgers, but delivery "service" is rubbish - expect to wait for at least 2 hours on a good night. Small Fry chip shop is lovely - also some good fish n' chips on the Sea Front. Also, The Harbour Bar is GORGEOUS!!!!!!
  • Again Huntriss Row has authentic Italian, Roast Meats, good bakery and the bog standard pizza hut and mcdonalds
  • fish pan-Jimmy Savilles their fave customer
  • Northway take-away is the only place to test your guts against the most rigorous of kebabs. Leave the bog feeling anything else than fear of having shat out you entire digestive system and you've passed the test. Proof of survival means a certificate next time you go in.
  • Gianni's on Victoria road is good!Especially with the early bird menu every nite from 6.30pm!
  • That new Italian bakery on Huntriss Row does the best pizzas in the world (puts Pizza Hut to shame), I love it ! Also try Jaspers sandwich bar on Bar Street in your lunch hour, absolutely gorgeous.
  • Florio's do gorgeous pizzas, and Harleys Diner on Huntriss Row is cool. Jools on North Marine Road is gorgeous too, they do lovely Sunday lunch!!
  • peking chef-it rocks
  • Triccalo's on eastborough, good tables upstairs 4 dancing on. Kam Sang, on the corner near the fire station, they serve the best creamofsomeyounguysays dan
  • Florios is good, especially during Happy Hour.
  • Can't believe people are sad enough to nomenate mcDonalds! -But if you like eating shite, with the other one-celled slaves that evolution forgot, then so be it. May you get all the 'food'-poisoning you deserve.
  • burger and beer from Roseburys also a communist combo from Red Square
  • macdonalds of course and deals for good pizzas after a night out
  • pick a street at random and experience that lard emotion
  • Macdonald the place to be! where workers spit in your burger and if it drops on the floor while it is being cooked count yourself luckey coz it will have some flavour the workers are always serving with a smile (not!)
  • The fish pan does decent fish and chips. But the real joy is that sausage and chips consists of 4 sausages yeahhhhh.
  • The wonderfully titled Pizzas,Pasta,Burgers should have 3 Michelin stars. The Pizzas are made before your very eyes and taste orgasmic.
  • mackky Ds, burger king,pizza hut and a lot of take aways.
  • Burger KIng is too ace to miss
  • You can never beat a good McDonalds.
  • A decent restaurant would be nice that isn't miles out of town, or minute!
  • Ernie's Chippy, opposite the Northway pub - best fish 'n' chips in the WORLD
  • Pizzas - Flames, Ramshill Rd Indian - Royal Tandoori, Queen St
  • The normal, loads of pretty reasonable cafes, more bakery's than you could possible imagine. PLenty of after club pizza place's, some much better than others. I'm not a great fan of Deals.
  • Florios is excellent for birthdays and general get - togethers, the cheesy Italian waiters will chat you up and add sparklers to that piece of birthday cake. If you are lucky, they might even sing to you!!!!!!!!!!! Yate's food is also quite decent.
