Description: A charming family run restaurant managed personally by the Foyles for a century. We focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, (sourced locally where possible), specialising in Seafood and traditional Irish Favourites, there is something to suit every taste. The restaurant is set in distinctive surroundings, full of interesting artefacts covering the history of Connemara and the hotel. You can expect a professional, friendly service, creative cooking, offered at a fair price in a relaxed ambience.

Loved our first visit on a buzzing Sunday night. Staff were attentive, though they did bill us for 5 glasses of wine rather than 3. Next visit on Wednesday was more low-key and poor service. Food pretty good, especially the mussels and the tarte tatin.

The setting and decor of the restaurant is elegant but comfortable. The staff is very attentive and professional. Like the extra touches: basket of bread on the table, sample of wine before the glass is poured. My husband and I ordered the seafood tagliatelle. The dish was plentiful with a good selection of seafood and a very flavorful cream sauce, but by Italian standards the pasta was much too overcooked and would suit the diet of a person with no teeth.

This restaurant had been recommended to us but unfortunately they got the orders wrong on both the kids dinners, the lamb for the main course was not cooked as per our request and they also got the bill wrong. Nice, friendly staff but not run very well I'm afraid

Brilliant food, great service and a joyful experience in Clifden. Plus, the restaurant is huge so we managed to find a seat there even though everything else was fully booked on Easter Sunday!

My wife and I spent several weeks in Clifden over the period February to April 2014.

We stayed in excellent rented accommodation and enjoyed many visits from family and friends over the period.

We took the opportunity to explore many of the restaurants and pubs in the area during our stay - the Marconi very definitely became our favourite and was thoroughly enjoyed, on multiple occasions, by ourselves and many of our guests.

It did what one expects, or at least hopes for, of a good restaurant: it served excellent food,, at reasonable prices, in a warm, friendly and courteous environment.
