This has location, food and service. Great range on the menu. I recommend the cod & salmon fish cakes, the baked organic salmon. Service is good and staff very friendly.

Stopped by after a visit to Connemara National Park and we had a fabulous dinner! Definitely worth stopping in Clifden for food!

I knew this restaurant was wonderful from a visit a year ago, and stopped by for lunch. With a fire burning, attentive staff, and happy diners all round, I had THE BEST fish cake I have ever had anywhere, Ireland or east coast USA. A bonus was the small cup of chowder, also excellent. Bravo!

We had a fabulous lunch at Mitchell's during our recent visit to Connemara. Clifden is a pretty popular spot to stay in the region given it's location. The restaurant is in the center of the town. It is absolutely charming. The food was superb - try the local crab, it was delicious. And the service was excellent. Highly recommend this... More

We checked out Mitchell's last night - they have a 3 course value nebula for €29 euros. It was superb. Only slight issue is that my steak arrived rare but this was quickly resolved without fuss. Every dish we ate was perfect. Thanks guys.

We went there on advice. We were not disappointed. The day soup and the seafood as well as the burger were really excellent. The inside is nice and the service is really good, however somehow not included in the price list. One of the most expensive dinner we had but really excellent.

Great welcome and service. The mussels were delicious and very fresh. The fish fingers and scallops were also lovely. Lovely fire crackling in the background. If you're in Clifden, this is a really great place to eat.

Have been to Mitchell's many times during the years. This was my first visit when I (and my party) were disappointed. The food was good but not as good as it used to be. Service was very rushed. A definite feel of a place at the end of season trying turn tables.

Thank spg1973
