Where do I start .... It was amazing! I had Chowder it was one of the best I've ever had , Shane had crostini which also was super tasty .For mains I had crab claws, I ordered chips as side,no need to as the portion...was huge . They were amazing! Shane had the steak which was perfectly cooked and flavoursome. I passed on dessert but Shane had Berry mess which he enjoyed . Our waitress was so lovely and friendly and efficiently bustling around keeping tables cleared .. So glad we choose Talbots to eat in ..More

I had the pleasure of visiting this wonderful restaurant last week with a group of friends. For those who don't know, Belmullet is a little slice of heaven in the wilds of Mayo with friendly people and, as I say in the title, a great...vibe. The serving staff were knowledgeable about the menu, and friendly. I am always nervous to order shellfish in Ireland (surprisingly, Irish people don't eat much seafood) however at Talbots there was nothing to worry about. The crab claws were the freshest I have ever tasted. Just stunning, and a nice big portion too. The service staff saw that my hands were a little messy, so they brought a finger bowl! The last time that happened was at the Ivy in London. I just love attention to detail and great service. To follow I had steak which was beautifully seasoned and cooked. In retrospect I wish I'd had more seafood! Next time, hopefully. If you ever find yourself in Belmullet, give this gem of a place a visit. You'll be glad you did.More

Visited the Talbot restaurant for dinner, seated in a spacious indoor area, very friendly staff. Delicious food from a very varied menu, something for everyone and the seafood was especially good. Highly recommend it if you're visiting Bellmullet.

We had booked a weekend away in Bellmullet as a chill out break as we are both frontline workers and had booked the Talbot Hotel Restaurant for a special evening meal. We arrived and were seated next to a waiter service area in the middle...of a dance floor. The fish selection was very poor and the food we did order was cold. The waiting supervisor had her mask under her chin most of the time and when we were asked if everything was ok we said it wasn't but felt it was not taken on board. I certainly will not go back here again and felt it spoilt an otherwise great day and super area to explore. AVOID.More

Thought this was a classy restaurant but ended up in what looked like a warehouse with chandeliers on the ceiling. Hassled non stop for the first ten minutes to place an order but when the food came not a waiting person in sight to report...cold chowder, cold crab claws and an overall poor fining experienceMore
