Thank you Mackerel Sky team for a delicious lunch. This place is well worth the visit and possible wait. The staff were very accommodating and despite the questions they seated everybody as quickly as possible. They allowed dogs inside and the service was friendly and prompt. The menu is simple, local and fresh seafood at its best. There is magic in the simplicity of the menu and the prices compliment the tapas style allowing you to try several dishes. Like everyone else, we would recommend the crab nachos and the salt and pepper squid. A little gem of a lunch spot!

We were very lucky to get parked by the restaurant and we waited a short time for an outside table. By the stream. In the sunshine.
All the food was delicious. We had scallops, cod and fries and salad. Delicious. Very fresh fish beautifully cooked. Great service. Reasonable prices. Will definitely visit again. You cannot book a table though.

We came here with the recommendation of our B&B owner and were warned to go before 6:30pm. We went at round 8pm on a Monday night and had no problem getting a table. The menu was interesting and the seafood tapas were all fresh and delicious. Our favourite was the crab nachos but the scallop skewers were ordinary. Reasonable prices, great service and good atmosphere as it seems like a favourite place for locals too.

Definitely worth waiting for a table here. We enjoyed all the dishes we tried, though the crab nachos was not our favourite - perhaps our mistake was to order everything at once, and then of course we wanted to eat the hot dishes while they were still hot, so left the crab till last. Our favourite was the monkfish. Very friendly staff.
