Brilliant staff and food

Emma C (March 2022) Trip Advisor

Friendly welcome, fantastic cod and chips loved the Irish curry sauce and what made our visit special was my daughter had a great gluten free choice the young man who served her went above and beyond to help her and the GF batter was the best she’s had.
When we are next in Whitby we will return.

Quayside Whitby

Chris Stevenson (March 2022) Trip Advisor

Stopped in for food as others were closing.

The decor is beautiful, clean and tidy and most referencing for a fish and chip restaurant.

Both of us ordered small cod and chips with a fruity curry an Irish curry, plus two drinks came to £40. Not cheap, but oh so worth it. You order via their app, it’s quick and efficient. The fish is beautiful cooked and rested, the batter is tasty and the fish flakes apart very well. The chips are a nice colour and taste great. This is a meal very much worth its price.

The staff are very pleasant and helpful, and very prompt. Overall I’d give it 10/10, a must try for fish and chips in Whitby

Lovely hot meal

Kath Noon (June 2021) Google Review

Lovely hot meal. I had scampi hubby had cod. Both with mushy peas and chips. Food was so good, we then had an ice cream sundae which was perfect too. Highly recommended this restaurant.

Great service and lovely food

We visited here with our young family and parents whilst on holiday in Whitby. It was one of the best restaurants we have been to. Fully Covid secure the tables were well spaced out and all waiting staff gave space. However we did feel as though staff were attentive. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and good portions. We all enjoyed our meals and enjoyed an affogato to finish off (or just an ice cream in the case of our 5 year old!). All in all we wouldn’t hesitate to return or to recommend.

The best Fish & Chips in Whitby!

NoakesRyan (May 2021) Bury, United Kingdom. Trip Advisor

We visited family in Whitby for the Bank Holiday Weekend and for the first night we had to have fish and chips and where better than the “best”. The restaurant was lovely, it’s been refurbished since we last went. A lovely decor inside, you can no longer see the take-a-way sat in the Restaurant which is nice. The staff are friendly. There was four of us, we all had Fish & Chips. I went for the Regular Fish Supper and to be honest, it’s big enough, you get plenty of chips. I should have got Small. It was really crispy batter and thick fleshy fish, chips cooked perfect and it came with Mushy Peas and Bread / Butter.

Great Fish & Chips

Clare C (April 2021) Trip Advisor

We visited here last week for dinner. There’s a small seating area outside the take away, so after ordering & collecting our food we sat there. The food was delicious. The chips were really tasty and my husband really enjoyed the fish. Would recommend.

When at the seaside

Sammy-Jo Lunt (March 2020) Trip Advisor

What a lovely restaurant staff where friendly and happy to help. Fish and Chips are always better at the the seaside but these where another level good. We got small and it was definitely enough. 5* recommendation will be going again.

Delicious Fish and Chips

Marky 509 (December 2019) Trip Advisor

We have had Fish and Chips from a number of the many establishments in Whitby and think The Quayside ranks as one of the very best. The Fish is generous in size and very well cooked. The chips cooked in beef fat are absolutely delicious and the mushy peas just how I like them. We will certainly return again in the future

Lunchtime on a Sunday

Betty P (August 2019) Trip Advisor

Wonderful grilled halibut with lemon butter from the specials menu. Chips super. Friendly staff, efficient & fast. This is table service so it’s not going to be as cheap as boxed fish & chips to eat on the run. Oasis of calm in crazily packed Sunday Whitby crowds.

Excellent as always

Horseman 397 (August 2019) Trip Advisor

I’ve visited this restaurant many times and every time it is excellent. The food is fantastic and great service. Best chippy in Whitby.
