Straits Cafe Scarborough
Great location, fantabulous tasty food and friendly service.. thank you
Food was very good, staff friendly, service quick but the windows were very dirty.
I understand salty air on the beach but this is the only seaside restaurant we have been to that has this problem. Eating and looking at dirty windows is a real turn off, just wondering if the kitchen is dirty ?
The service wasn’t as expected. Limited food options.
Excellent meal and service. Highly recommended. Meal was served very quickly by an excellent waitress.
Took more than an hour for food to arrive. The brownie dessert was served cold and took two returns to the kitchen to get it right. Very disappointing.
Had a lovely time at Straits food was very good the only little thing is that with the fish dish they could've put a little salad or a bigger piece of fish considering your paying $36 for it . The service was excellent and attentive but not invasive. We'll defenenatly go back!
I took the mrs here for her birthday and it was very good the staff are very friendly and willing to help and the food was really good as well. On arrival they greeted the mrs with happy birthday and gave her a drink on the house. I will definitely be going back!
Our waitress was amazing and made our experience even better. We’ll be back for sure
Food was very average and not all items were as described on the menu, will not be going back.
I took my friend to Straits Café for her birthday. We were welcomed by a friendly staff member, who wished my friend a happy birthday. The ocean view was beautiful. Décor is classy and comfortable.
We enjoyed the $25.00 lunch special which included a glass of very nice sparkling wine. Our desert
came with a candle, and the staff member sang Happy Birthday, then offered my friend a complimentary glass of wine. Must say it was a delightful lunch made extra special by the lovely staff. Thank you.
Pleasant surrounds, good food. inexperienced staff.
Lovely friendly staff, lunch specials great value and beautiful view. Thank you
The food was tasty and there was an exceptable variety for a buffet but it was cold.

Thank you JenniferC for taking the time to write a review! we sure hope to see you back at Straits Cafe again. Glad the team was able to accommodate you. Nathan H Restaurant and Bar Manager Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough
We had a 2for1 offer with hotel so price wasnt too bad. I wouldnt pay $29 for breakfast like that. Waited for someone to show up to do omelette n waitress said she would ask but no one came
Wonderful meal - good atmosphere, excellent service.
I am 31 weeks pregnant and was staying at the Rendezvous for 2 nights. Having stayed there before I knew that the Straits Cafe gets busy so I booked a table for Saturday at 8:45am.
We arrived to our booking at 8:45am to a vacant front desk and a couple in front of us waiting. A staff member, Deborah indicated that she will be back in a minute.
After assisting the couple before us, I told her my room number and that I’d pre-booked a table. Her response is what ruined our experience “I’m sorry we don’t have a table you will have to wait” I repeated that we had booked a table. “She advised that as the time is now 8:52am they are too busy to hold tables”. I pointed out that we were on time and that she had seen us waiting in line when the desk was unattended. Her response was “well when we are busy we don’t hold tables so what do you want me to do?”
If I hadn’t already pre-payed for Breakfast on Sat & Sun I would have enjoyed outstanding service at any of the other cafes nearby.
So whilst the chefs did an amazing job with the food, your floor manager needs to improve.
As I said to her, if you don’t hold tables don’t take bookings and never accuse someone of arriving late when they didn’t.
Good food, wait staff polite and efficient and lovely outlook across the ocean.
A special farewell dinner for a dearly loved family member. A table by the window for a view of the ocean was marred by the deeply gouged scratches on the restaurant windows as well as an outside balcony which blocked half the outlook. There were other tables not being used with far superior outlooks. We assumed they were reserved but that was not the case.
Expensive prices for basic pub food however my husbands meal was the exception as it was generous and varied and enjoyable.
Two mains were returned to the kitchen as the scotch steak in the steak sandwich was inedible. Tough, leathery, and unable to be cut through. The staff were extremely apologetic and offered alternative meals however we declined as we had eaten our sides and a small entree and were no longer hungry.
Cocktails took over half an hour to receive even though we had requested to have them before our entree was delivered. The drinks and the entree were served almost immediately together. I enjoyed my cocktail however the other two cocktails were not pleasant and not made well and the glasses were splattered with water where they had not been dried properly from washing.
Fantastic service, staff were happy and accommodating
Food was great, we had the share plate for starters which was very filling and than the main course really topped it off. Really great food, and the service we received was excellent.
I received a birthday voucher and we were both very pleasantly surprised for our first dining experience here. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food which were very generous portions. The staff were all very welcoming, and the service was very good. We weren't rushed at all which made it a very relaxing evening. We have already recommended this place to others, and look forward to coming again soon.
The meal was average and the beer is fair too expensive $15 for a pint of beer is outrageous when the other venues in the area charge $8-10. Wouldn’t go back.
For a restaurant at a decent hotel the food is very ordinary and uninspiring. The range of options were sparse especially for a buffet. There is no reason for me to want to return.
Food was overpriced and of poor quality
Meat on the platter was cold
Salmon and chicken was over cooked
Ordered 2 glasses of champagne that did not arrive. they said the system failed.
Ordered 2 glasses of champagne again and received a whole bottle that was opened -- so they got the order wrong. we gave up and just accepted the whole bottle anyway..
Later requested a candle to be brought out in a cupo cake or something because it was my wife's brithday. was told had to order a desert (not cheap) so i did and it took ages to come out.. Overall it was expensive for what it was but the staff were all very friendly and nice.
Fantastic choice and verty tasty . Great view of ocean and awesome customer service
The staff was unfriendly and rude,the waitress come to the table with the face sad,I think is bettar if her change a job (the casier) my first and last time In this restaurant
We had a birthday booked. The birthday girl requested well done steak she was sent out medium to medium rare steak not once but twice. Also the 2nd steak took forever to come out everyone else finished their dinner before she got to have hers.
The waitstaff were good at trying to resolve the issue but think the kitchen staff need to update their knowledge on different types of cooked steak.
Other than that wait staff were great and rest of our food couldnt be faulted. Decent portions for the price.
We ordered an entree and main each. Entrees were okay. Ordered scotch fillet for dinner, 80% of the steak was fat and inedible. $42 each and left extremely disappointed. For that much money the steak should have been incredible and high quality. Definitely won’t be back and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
I have been to the restaurant on several occasions & have usually had a good experience. This time I was a little embarrassed because I had invited a good friend & he had the greasy pork & only eat a quarter & I had extremely dry over cook fish. Very disappointing.
Food was absolutely disgusting, cold smelly fish, raw meat and sloppy salads, would never ever come back again, worst $210 ever spent
Fabulous location with great value lunches. The food is yummy, great place to meet friends for lunch.
Excellent, friendly service with breakfast buffet providing all the usual fare including 2 self-serve pancake making machines.
Friendly staff, lunch menu is good value for money, like the quiet atmosphere, nice and light, nice view
Exceptional service. Value and plenty of choice.
The service was friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was delicious, not too fancy but as promised and the variety was great for the range of guests we had. Gorgeous ambience.
We were staying in the hotel and decided to have lunch here. We totally recommend it, the food was amazing.
Slow service was offset by very good food and wonderful ocean views
