Lovely Meal

Trip Advisor, April 2024

We ate upstairs with lovely views of the harbour. We had fish and chips followed by apple and raspberry crumble – both yummy! The waiters were very polite and attentive. The place is very clean and well maintained. We will definitely return.

Very busy when we visited but had booked table in advance. Seated in upstairs of restaurant with views out to the abbey. Waiting staff working incredibly hard to give first class attention. Drinks and food arrived promptly after ordering. Delicious fish and chips. It was a special occasion lunch with 3 family birthdays – ambiance and food could not have been better..

Sublime Fish & Chips

Trip Advisor, Jan 2024

Was recommended this restaurant by a friend who regularly visits Whitby, and believes this to be the best. And his recommendation didn’t let us down. The batter on the fish was light and crumbled as you cut it. Plenty of fish inside and it was all pure white cod. The chips were also beautiful, cooked to perfection, soft and fluffy all the way through and not a bad chip on the plate. The sides were also delicious, peas and curry sauce both thick and tasty. Portion sizes were good, we both struggled to finish but wasn’t letting it beat us. The service was great, friendly staff, we had about a 5 minute wait for a table but staff were friendly and kept us up to date. Big open kitchen and you can see your food cooked. We had regular fish n chips, small fish n chips, homemade mushy peas, fruity curry sauce, bread and butter and 2 alcoholic drinks and it came to £49. Would recommend trying here if you are in Whitby. When we left the queue for the takeaway was also out the door, a sign of good food.


Trip Advisor, December 2023

This is the 4th time we have visited this restaurant and it never lets us down. Came in and was instantly seated at a table. Food was amazing and the member of our group that wanted gluten free was also well catered for. Staff were approachable and helpful. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.


Trip Advisor, Nov 2023

By far the best fish and chips in Whitby. Perfection simple as that. The surroundings are perfect and the staff are friendly.

Fish & Chips

Trip Advisor, Oct 2023

We called in here on our last day in Whitby. All the fish and chips are good in Whitby but I think this is the best. Excellent service in a nice environment and the fish and chips are delicious.

Above and beyond

Trip Advisor, October 2023

Went for a family 40th birthday. Asked if they could provide a balloon at the table which they did. Not only that, they had seated us upstairs which made us feel ‘extra special.’ Have been coming here for several years and have never been disappointed with the food.

Pure Class

Trip Advisor, Oct 2023

The Quayside sits in an absolutely stunning building, which has the complete “Wow” factor, and everywhere is shiningly, spotlessly clean. My husband opted for the cod, while I went for the sea bass. I must say the cod was the most beautiful, fresh, melt in the mouth and delicious either of us have ever had anywhere ever ! My sea bass was a very generous sized two fillet portion, with a large portion of tasty salad and chips. I ate all my chips… which is unheard of – and so is a great compliment to the venue ! The staff were all very helpful and efficient. All in all The Quayside is simply pure class – in both the venue, and the food !

Fantastic Cod and Chips!

Trip Advisor, September 2023

Extremely busy, everyone greeted with a warm welcome. Few minutes wait for excellent takeaway cod and chips
