Nice to sit and watch the sea.

Good for a take away and cakes are good if sitting in too. View is lovely if you can get a seat at the window. Agree with previous comments about rude waitress though.

Loved the icecream, didn't like the wait for the food. Kids meal was shown as sausage and chips, being a chippy you would expect it to be a small sausage supper but no! It was a deep fried link sausage. The dinners we had from the normal menu was delicious. The haggis supper especially good

The food in Mackays, we always find, is fine. However we decided to sit in the Bantry and although the other reviewers say the waitress (50+and 'blonde') "her bark is worse than her bite" well if you are serving the public then at least be polite. She was incredibly rude from the offset and yes we did just "plonk" ourselves... More

Had fish and chips, batter wasn't crisp, mushy and thick. Very disappointing considering it's position and heritage of Eyemouth. Really expected better.

Only popped in for an ice cream. It wasn't great and had some obscure flavours. Didn't eat from the hot counter but it looked clean and staff were tidy.
