“Great spot to dine in Clifden”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Myself and the wife dined here twice during our stay in Clifden. The first time we walked in off the street and the second we made reservations. What to say. A great reception from the staff very friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere and decor. Nice menu with good selection to chose from. The food was just top class. A+++

“Very good and with right refinement”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We are currently touring Irland and to be frank, it is one of the best restaurants we've been since 2 weeks. We are a family of four and everybody was happy for this dinner. We recommend definitely this restaurant with sympathic staff on top !!

“Great food in traditional, unstuffy setting”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We loved this restaurant, so much that we ate there two nights in a row. The Early Bird deal is such good value for really top quality food, and the menu was so enticing. Part of Foyles Hotel, the decor is traditional but quirky; waiting staff very pleasant and the atmosphere good.

“Great value in an iconic setting”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We ate with friends who live locally and rate this as one of the best places currently to eat in the Clifden area, and were so impressed we went again. The early bird menu is really good value. All tastes catered for - excellent seafood and locally sourced eat. Service is polite and efficient - we particularly liked the unobtrusive manner in which empty tables were swiftly cleared and re-laid so other diners never had messy vacated tables surrounding them. Wine list fairly priced and a good selection. Whilst we were there many would be diners were turned away - so do book if you want to be guaranteed a table.
