Delicious food well worth the wait.
We had been recommended this restaurant by the owner of the hotel we are staying at.
You can't book you have to queue for a table.
We picked an unfortunate day to go as we went on a day with torrential rain however even waiting 50 mins in the rain the food was that delicious it was well worth it.
We had muscles, various white fish dishes, scallops, calamari, sides, and a raspberry desert, and it was all amazing.
The food came out really quickly, was fresh, really tasty, and cooked perfectly.
The staff were lovely too; really helpful and friendly.
The dessert was so nice I could have eaten another one straight after.
Would definitely recommend.

Eating at Mackerel Skies is akin to giving birth. Once the baby is in your arms you forget the pain of labour. Here is the analogy once seated and menu chosen the food arrives and you forget the long wait in the pouring rain. The fish tapas style menu is fabulous. Freshly caught, freshly cooked and served by delightful cheery staff. Highly recommend for anyone willing to queue.

Believe all the reviews. Queue patiently and you will be rewarded with fantastic food and service. Be amazed at how they manage to bring you the freshest seafood from a tiny kitchen and with enthusiasm by the bucket load. Make sure you add this to your Cornish holiday list!

Cannot rate this seafood bar highly enough. Outstanding service and seafood quality. Despite the long queue and rainy weather, every minute of waiting time was well worth it. The crab, squid, haddock, scallops, sole, prawns and samphire were simply delicious, washed down with superb wine. Be sure to visit - you won’t regret it. Even Rick Stein goes there !
