Mackerel Sky has recently changed hands and the experience is a delight. The service was prompt and courteous, the local beers refreshing and the food exceeded all expectations. I had the tasting board and crab rarebit, both were delicious, I would highly recommend them. Pop in, I'll certainly be back.

we discovered this refreshingly original independant restaurant/cafe on a recent holiday to Penzance and were wowed by the food-which is fresh and exciting- and very reasonably priced. The welcome and service is friendly, efficient and relaxed, the attrractive artwork is a bonus. We will be back!

The new owners had only been here for 2 weeks when we visited for lunch. They were so friendly and the coffee and food were without fault. We will definitely be returning and are planning our next lunch! Good luck with the new venture - you deserve it! :-)

Mackerel Sky has recently reopened under new management. I have visited the restaurant more than once which speaks for its self! I found the service welcoming, friendly and efficient, the surroundings both relaxed and quietly chic. There is a selection of menu's which are offered at different times, affordably priced and the food is fresh, appealing and tasty. It now has good opening times and is well worth a visit. Would recommend!... Enjoy!!
