    While we cannot credit this restaurant for the sunshine and the rainbows, we can say that everything that was in their gift was excellent: friendly, attentive and accommodating people, great location with sea views, and fresh, delicious fish and seafood, plus nice wine. Brilliant place!

    I've been visiting Whitby since the 70s (maybe even the 60s) and have eaten from many establishments serving fish and chips. The Fisherman's Wife I discovered only last year, but it is my first choice for eating every time now. To me, it beats The Magpie, the Quayside and Hadley's. This time, being extremely hungry, I and my wife decided to have a starter... the price seemed a little high until the food arrived, at which point we lost the last of any possible quibbles around the menu or its pricing. The starters were superb! My moules marinieres were as good as any I had enjoyed in France and my wife was suitably impressed by the seafood platter. Haddock and chips beat any I had previously eaten elsewhere, and my wife's crab salad reminded me of the joy of crab sandwiches on Lindisfarne (don't tell her I nicked some while she wasn't looking!). Add to that the unintrusive but efficient waiting staff and the whole experience was both delightful and faultless. My ultimate accolade is to say that we will be back! I just hope that my praise doesn't make it too hard to book a table...

    Great Saturday early evening meal with friends. Service excellent. Maybe could have had some GF fries on the menu but food was generally also excellent.

    We we’re lucky to be given a booth with a fantastic view of the beach, this really enhanced our evening. The menu was extensive and we were spoilt for choice. The food was fantastic, the best seafood we have tasted, we enjoyed every mouthful. I particularly liked the cold fish platter and the fish pie, my husband enjoyed the garlic prawns and good old battered fish and chips. The staff were lovely and the atmosphere great. Would highly recommend a visit while you are in Whitby you will not be disappointed.

    Perfect place for a fish and chips restaurant with excellent view of the bay. We were here to celebrate a birthday and the lovely lady who greeted us very kindly gave us a window table. Fish and chips were good but personally I would prefer my chips a little darker. Usually I would have garden peas but they were out of those which ended up being a good thing sad I had curry sauce instead and that was so nice. There are lots of restaurants in Whitby selling fish and chips, probably too many but Fishermans Wife is one of the better ones.

    As we had booked a table we were expected and provided a table next to the window overlooking the sea, although this is never guaranteed. Very clean, excellent service and food all freshly cooked. Could not fault the experience.
