I can't imagine a better stop for seafood in Clifden or anywhere else in Connemara. The seafood platter is the way to go. Nice service as well. Well done!

Lovely restaurant,but you will need to make a reservation. It's a popular place and the food doesn't disappoint. My only quibble is the seating. Too close to fellow diners, but really I'm being a bit picky with that.

There is a prix fixe menu with a good selection from all courses at a very reasonable. 28.95. The goat's cheese starter... More

I'm happy enough to recommend this place actually if you're hungry, and not terribly fussy. I had lovely lamb - it wasn't perfectly cooked , a little over-cooked actually, as were the veg a little over done. For me - it's a matter of taste too, I get that. The wine was good. The wait was long, the service wasn't... More

During our two weeks in Ireland, this is the only restaurant we visited twice - it was that good! The seafood couldn't be fresher, the staff are amazingly friendly, and the food is DELICIOUS. Do yourself a favor and go here. Clifden is an adorable little town and we are super glad we spent the day exploring the place. We... More

We travel on a budget, but like to enjoy the finer dining options in an area as much as possible. We grabbed lunch here during our time in Clifden. I ordered the fish pie and it was the best fish pie I've ever had. The atmosphere was lovely.

Probably the most upmarket restaurant option in Clifden, serves great fish. Fish pie particularly recommended.

When we first got to Ireland our friends took us out to Inishbofin. On ferry ride back in there was a heated discussion about dinner and Mitchell's was brought up several times. We never made it to dinner that night but Mitchell's stayed on our mind. After a night in Roundstone we headed to Clifden for the day. When we... More
