This tiny bistro fully deserves it's number one rating. Booking is essential, the service is professional but warm. The ambience is lovely but the star is the food. A sensibly small menu of beautifully prepared and presented dishes in appropriate portions and excellent value. My, how eating out at the "sea-side" has changed.!!

Only open Weds to Sat and small so need to book. Overall good food but it isn't a fine dining restaurant and lacks a bit of atmosphere you'd expect for a small bistro. However, when in Whitby again would probably visit as different to most of the other restaurants on offer

Small and atmospheric restaurant. We weren't able to get a table in the summer but returned in the Autumn and weren't disappointed. Delicious food and wine and charming, friendly waitress. Than you

The ambience is perfect, small and intimate with subdued lighting plus a typical friendly Yorkshire welcome and service. The food is absolutely superb for the very reasonable price; the wine selection is good, I highly recommend the Soldiers Block Shiraz. I also highly recommend booking a table, they get booked up months in advance.

Possibly the best dining experience we've enjoyed all year. The food, service and atention to detail were superb. Doubt it'll be long before the Ditto gets their first Michelin star. Portions were nicely sized and the grapefruit and ginger sorbet between starter and main courses was a good touch. Service was not rushed and the staff were very helpful and... More

I booked a table here for last Thursday evening based on the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor. This was our first visit to Whitby and hopefully won't be our last. The small restaurant was cosy, the food great and the service exceptional. Even my husband was impressed (chef). A superb dinner and I would like to say we'll... More

Knowing that we were in the area ''tis week and having read the reviews, I made reservations several weeks ago. As it was, the restaurant was busy but not packed on the Thursday night we visited. It is small but cosy restaurant with good space per table, the welcome was friendly from the waitress. My starter was the fish croquettes,... More

We come on holiday to Whitby every October and have done for the past 9 years. We found Ditto's 5 years ago and have been every time since then. The quality of food and service has never dropped and value for money is superb. It does show that you can maintain the standards over a long period if you really... More

I booked this restaurant for my birthday trip as I had read so many good reviews on here. I had tried to get a table the previous year but had not booked in advance enough and missed out. This year I booked very early and it was just as good as the reviews said. The food quality was outstanding and... More
