Most enjoyable meal, very good service, we certainly would recommend this restaurant. We went in on the off- chance, didn’t fancy walking into Scarborough town centre. Glad we spotted this restaurant; we had a most enjoyable meal. We opted for a combo sharing for two meal, known as the “belly busty”. The meal arrived very quickly and certainly lived up... More

We didn't have a reservation but they managed to fit 5 of us in with friendliness and no fuss. Everything was done efficiently, from order taking to service. All the staff were busy but courteous, polite and very accommodating. Showing good old fashioned customer service all round. Food was really nice and they didn't skimp on quantity. The food was...

Cocktails were 2 4 1 ! And the screaming orgasms were just heavenly. Would definitely return when we are next in Scarborough. The... More

The food was lovely, service really good but the only downfall is the smokey atmosphere from the kitchen. We left as soon as we ate due to the smoke stinging people's eyes. Also be prepared to come out smelling of cooking.

We were a party of 18 people and we had a great meal out. Last time I came here I was a bit disappointed but this time the service and food were good. We expected a wait due to our large number but the wait was acceptable. The food appeared to go down well as I could not see many... More

Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was over-rated and over priced.poor taste and just thrown on the plates. Far too cramped between tables,ventilation was terrible,our eyes were stinging with the fumes,clothes and hair smelt dreadful,had to come home and shower afterwards. Liked- the staff. Didn't like- anything else about it.malton el gringos puts the Scarborough one to shame

Convenient location on South Cliff. Great menu and good value for money. Portions are huge though - we shared a starter and couldn't manage a dessert. Had a takeaway previously too. We'll be back.

I asked for Cuban chicken which included onion mash and my partner asked for Chimichanga. The waitress said the meals came with a side and did we want salad , curly fries etc. My partner asked for curly fries and I said mine came with mash so salad would be ok and I would give it to my partner.
