Culinary Delights

Scarborough is a foodie heaven, with seafood delights such as traditional fish and chips to award-winning Italian cuisine. Whether you are looking for a light bite in the ever popular Eat Me Café which has previously been awarded with UK’s Best Café or a sensational dining experience at Italian restaurant Tricolos, there’s something in Scarborough for all appetites.

No trip to the seaside is complete without Fish and Chips. Savour in locally sourced seafood at The Golden Grid or Princess Restaurant both located steps away from Scarborough Harbour or visit Anton’s Bar & Grill also on Foreshore Road which serves a variety of delectable dishes including mouth-wateringly prime chargrilled steaks. Complete your afternoon at the beach with some delicious Fish and Chips with a view out to sea. Along the seafront, you’ll find an abundance of Fish and Chip shops and also seafood stalls offering freshly caught produce. Don’t forget to stop by one of the vintage-styled ice cream parlours and also enjoy an award-winning dessert!
