Have been visiting Castlebar for years to lunch with relatives and this is by far the best place we've been yet. The menu is varied from salads to curries to more traditional fare and includes a wide range of tempting burgers. The portobello mushroom and haloumi cheese burger was glorious. Perfectly cooked and tasted so fresh. A beautiful combo. Would... More

Despite being busy, service was friendly, efficient and the food tasted great. The menu is detailed and being my second time to eat there, again found it memorable. Only planned to eat there, but stayed for a few drinks.

Best dining experience in Castlebar (but note alternatives are dire). Nice room and ambience. Food is hit and miss. Duck spring rolls were awful and fishcakes tasteless. Fish and chips and steak good. Good selection of drinks, although I saw the barman decanting half a carafe of wine back into a bottle and putting it in the fridge for the... More

The food here is truly delicious, there is such a wide range of choices, from fish and duck to burgers, pastas and a great range of starters. The highlight however, was the desserts. The apple crumble was the best I have tasted and the nutella cheesecake was something special as well. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. Book... More

Have eaten here before & always got great service and a good meal but this time the food let it down. As usual we got a seat fairly quickly even though the place was busy. Our food arrived promptly but I am disappointed to say it was terribly bland. The fishcakes just about tasted of smoked haddock & that's it... More

After reading all the reviews about Bar One I decided to dine here while on an overnight in Castlebar. And was I so glad I did. I was made very welcome by the staff when I arrived. The bar recommended the special of the evening which was a beef curry. It was very very tasty. Prior to the curry I... More

I have eaten here on many occasions. The food is delicious especially DeBurcas burgers! Staff are very nice. It can be busy so get there early for lunch!

Delicious food. Excellent service. The only annoying thing was that it is closed on Sunday (as, it appears, is much of the town in November). Can't recommend it too highly

Great food, great service and staff are so polite and helpful. Tasteful decor (recent refurb unnecessary though). 1 Minor qualm: Menu could do with being changed to some degree as regulars are becoming a little tired of the same things as nice as it is.
