We arrived in an Spidéal late on a Friday evening after a long drive, hungry and with no booking. We got a table in the restaurant here after just a couple of minutes. The meal was really lovely: sea bass with delicious champ for me; teriyaki noodles for my OH washed down with two lovely pints of Guinness. We shared a dessert. Service was excellent. The staff were friendly. It was just what we needed.

Many people come to Spiddal to try to improve their spoken Irish as this is one of the towns within the Gaeltacht. If that's your aim, don't bother with this place. Every time my wife asked the staff anything in Irish, the response came in English. Eventually, one waitress relented and exchanged words in Irish. As for the food - one BLT, one toasted cheese sandwich, a coke and a tea for €25 won't encourage us back

We stopped here for Lunch as we had been before. We got to the entrance and waited 10 minutes to be seated as the 3 staff members were behind the bar trying to pull pints and serve drink to customers aswell as check in customers to their rooms. While we were waiting a lady was leaving and giving out how much she had been charged for a portion of chips. Alarm bells should of rang for us but we were hungry so decided to stay. We finally got to our table and decided what we wanted which was 2 soups and 2 toasted sandwiches. From the time we ordered to receiving our food 40 minutes had passed...40 minutes to get 2 soups and 2 sandwiches was absolutely ridiculous. The soup tasted burnt and was lukewarm. The sandwiches were nice. The table of 4 people next to us were nearly on top of us which during covid restrictions didn't feel safe. When we were leaving our bill could not be found so we told the man who had joined the staff behind the bar who I presume is the owner what we had but he ignored what we said and kept searching for our bill which he couldn't find and after another 5 minutes he eventually took our word for what we had let us pay so we could leave. €27 for 2 soups and 2 sandwiches was a rip off. This restaurant needs more staff and to look after there customers better.

We hadn't made a booking for dinner, but were lucky enough to have been given a table on the nice terrace outside. The fish & chips were really tasty, as was the lamb roast dinner from the children's menu. The desserts we had, chocolate brownies & an ice cream sundae were delicious. I was a little disappointed as the salmon I had was a bit on the salty side & the mash it was served with was lumpy. Also we ordered an extra drink & tea that weren't served. But overall it was a lovely dining experience, our first after lockdown.

Stayed here for one night and had dinner and drinks. Food was good and staff friendly and helpful. Rooms are basic but clean and nice views. Location very good in the centre of Spiddal and close to beaches and shops. Breakfast was included and was v tasty. Good value and would return if in Spiddal again.
