I have been visiting Coverack for many more years than I care to mention, the revamped restaurant now called the Fat Mackerel is well worth a visit. new owners and new menu are making all the difference.
The place was full with people trying to get a space. Great for kids and adults alike the menu is varied with fresh fish, ribs and even a curry. My scallop starter was excellent and my curry very good. I.ll be back.

We had a very tasty meal, locally sourced food, and very well cooked. The choice of menu is good, with fish being the star of the show. This is not a fish and chip restaurant/cafe, if you want that, head down to the harbour. Staff are very friendly, and welcoming. Will definitely be visiting again, and again.

We were a group of six who enjoyed a well cooked meal using mostly local produce in this newly opened restaurant. The mussels and locally caught pollock were very tasty and the belly pork was delicious. The homemade chocolate fudge cake and local strawberries were excellent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we had a very good evening.

A great addition to a lovely village. Friendly staff, local produce, really tasty mussels and smoothies to die for! (great for this hot weather we are having) The Guinness cake and the chocolate brownies were wonderful. Look forward to visiting again.
