A perfect Irish setting, good waiters, excellent food (seafood for sure), and a lovely cozy (fire burning) dinner on a cool autumn evening. Only cautionary remark would be that it was too hot in the restaurant. Everyone was taking off sweaters and layering down to...More

Food was delicious. We asked waitress how fresh the salmon was and she replied, “ my father caught it this morning!” I believe that’s true. Generous portions, not expensive and dining room felt like home for a large family. Wonderful. Can’t wait to visit again.

I can say that this place has delicious seafood, fresh and well prepared. Our server was very attentive and polite. A place to recommend to eat when in Clifden!

Helpful and informative staff. The food was delicious - go for seas food - its what its famous for. My scallops were the best I've had in a long time, and the crab sald was fresh and plentiful. A gem.

We had driven by the mussels fishery in the Killary fjord so when we saw them on the menu here we had to try them - soooo good, fresh, a little sweet and cooked perfectly in a beautiful broth. My dad had the salmon which...More

I ate lunch here on a recent vacation in Clifden. I had read online that this was one of the best restaurants in town. Although the article recommended seafood (and the restaurant does tout seafood), I opted for the shepherd's pie and was not disappointed....More
