This place is great for an afternoon or after work drink - great atmosphere and all locals/tourists seem to be welcome. Food is a bit like something at a diner but cheap. Very relaxed and always busy during summer. Nice view across the water.

Conveniently located just across from the beach the Mako Beach Bar is a good place for a snack during the day or a beer in the evening. It seems to be the place where loads of locals hang out and play pool or watch sports on the giant TV set. It is a nice beach bar with decent drinks, which are reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and helpful and the view is across the bay is just stunning. Well, you would not expect gourmet style dishes there anyway and you will not get them. Apart from that it is just fun to have a beer there!

This place is where we come first to relax, have a drink and enjoy the view, then order a snack. Shame they don't make cocktails.

I had the fish and chips with a draft beer. The fish was delicious and the chips crispy. The beer was well priced and they do have a happy hour. Mako is directly across the street from the beach and offers mostly outdoor tables, although there is indoor seating and even a pool table. This is a fun and friendly place that attracts locals as well as visitors.
