We had dinner in the newly refurbished Fitz's, the place looks amazing and the new menu was delicious. We had the chicken liver parfait & arancini balls for starters, steak & the homemade gnocchi with sweet potato for mains. It was all really really good!...A nice varied menu overall. Lots more to choose from on out next visit. We couldn't fit dessert in so we opted for a flat white martini instead, delicious! Vesna the hostess was very attentive, we couldn't have asked for a better experience.More

Very happy I stopped by. I tried the vegan laksa curry, was great. Danielle served me with a smile, and was on hand for more poppadoms when needed. Superb service. Thanks!

Stopped here for dinner. It was average. Staff were nice. The day was quite warm and the fire was lit so it was extremely warm. We got the fish and chips, fish batter was very soggy. Also got the chicken burger and the steak sandwich,...both fairly average. The onion rings were the highlight.More

On our first visit to Doolin we had various places recommended to us, this restaurant was one of them. We phoned in advance to each of them to make a booking and this one was the only one who informed us that they didn’t take...bookings, it was a ‘ first come first served ‘ basis. So having arrived to our cottage and settled in, we took a trip down to Fitzpatrick’s really looking forward to a nice meal on our first night in Doolin. We were asked by a receptionist if we had a booking to which we replied we were told when we phoned to make an actual booking, that they didn’t take bookings!!! She was completely unimpressed and unapologetic,saying that she had changed the procedures during the week. We complained that if we had been told when we rang that things were likely to change, we would have rang back later in the week to get a table. As it was, there was now no chance of getting in anywhere in Doolin that particular evening because everything was now well booked out. So bad customer service in our opinion and not a great start to our Irish staycation.More

Firstly, Doolin seems to have a lack of places to eat. Not Fitz’s fault, but the fact that two others choose not to open on certain days of the week and another closes at 8 meant knock on problems for this place. We asked earlier...in the day and were told it was a walk-in service, no booking. Arrived after 8 and were asked if our name was on the list, we explained that it wasn’t, we were told it was walk in. Apparently this changed as too many people walked it that evening so they started to take names. Around 8:55 we were advised that they might not be able to take our party of 4, the local takeaway was closing in 5 mins so we could go there or gamble waiting for Fitzs, but if a table didn’t become free by 9:20, we would be turned away. This was stressful with two small children, but we decided to stay. We eventually got a table. Food was ok, service was slow, wrong wine was brought but we just drank it at that stage. After main courses we waited a lot time to have the table cleared. I called a waiter and asked him to take our finished dishes & bring the dessert menu. He replied that the kitchen was closed. The kids who had been waiting ages for their ice cream were devastated. We said they’d eat it quickly, but there was no chance. Very disappointing experience. Apparently they were short staffed but should warn customers of when the kitchen will close.More
