Having struggled under its new owners with poor service, a disappointing menu and increased prices this restaurant has now closed and the business is up for sale.

This used to be very good, excellent food and nice interior and not overly expensive, but the staff and chef all left and it went downhill . still nice interior and interesting menu ,but not well cooked , and no atmosphere.

Weekend visit 11-13 November Good honest food and good price at 9.95 for a 3 course meal albeit set meals. Staff attentive without being pushy.. I hope to return in 2017 keep up the good work - would be nice if it opened from Lunchtime..

New owners have unfortunately failed to keep up the high standards set by the original owners. Meals not great and service poor. Shame.

First visit to El Clavel since it changed hands, and as we had friends with us, who also run a restaurant, were a little anxious. On arrival, the place smelled of old cooking oil,which was most unpleasant? I started with the belly pork which was dry and stringy and tough. This was followed by chicken stroganoff which was reasonably tasty,... More

This has to be one of my favourite restaurants. I have visited on many occasions and absolutely love their dishes. It is very good for price and I would recommend anyone to visit if near.

Despite the reviews, we decided to book a table on Friday evening, & I'm so glad we did! We both had the steak special which included a bottle of wine for €30.... More

Visited this area to be greatly disappointed by the lack of actual Spanish food. Everything being catered towards tourists. El Clavel was the only place that served a taste of Spain. My boyfriend and myself had the prawns to start which were large and delicious. Followed by the swordfish main. Both starters were accompanied by bread and dip and complimentary... More

Last year (2015) I stopped going to this restaurant as I found the front of house staff indifferent and uninterested in customers. The service was beyond slow and justified by the then owners as not wanting to rush you. Heard it had new owners from April this year so gave it a try last week. A much improved restaurant under...
