Well my wife and I went into this restraunt yesterday afternoon for lunch. Once again the food was top notch. Their service was second to none, we were made to feel so welcome by the waitress who was working there on her own. Thanks

We popped in for a cuppa yesterday. We had been for a long walk and before eating/drinking I needed the toilet. I needed the key code for this - a good idea as loads of people could just use the facilities in the summer when Eyemouth will be busy. In any case, I always judge an eating establishment by its...

We have been here 4 times now on our annual holiday in the area and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. We have always had a warm welcome from the waitress and service has been excellent. The crab salad is to die for, and the fish and chips are great. We had desserts and the creme brûlée and Eton mess we're... More

We've been going to Mackay's for years, and the food has always been very good - freshly cooked to order, with big portions. It's true that there's a way to do things in Mackays - you wait until you're shown to a table, rather than just plonking yourself where you like - but we don't recognise the description of poor...

We always make an effort to visit when we are in the area. The best fish and chips ever! Kids portions are huge, and everything is freshly cooked.

Returned after a period of 4 years. To me this is the best fish and chip shop on the country. We had haddock this time. I must say when we came 4 years ago, we could choose between cod, haddock and plaice. Not now. Only haddock but still the same exceptional taste and quality. Ice creams were brilliant too...

After reading some of the comments below I was beginning to think I went to a different restaurant. NEVER once have I found the waitress anything but well mannered, and very efficient. Infact she amazes me how well she copes when the restaurant is busy which it nearly always is. In my opinion the food and service is excellent and... More

I have been reading some of the comments below and I find myself dumbfounded at most of the negatives ones. The (middle aged Blondish) waitress if it's the same one, is great banter, you just have to know how to take her, she always looks grumpy but her bark is worse than her bite. The view is astounding, but you... More
