Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited two nights in a row, Friday and Saturday nights. The food was delicious on both occasions, very tasty and served piping hot, and fairly promptly. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was live music on both nights with two different artists...playing each night in and early and late shift type arrangement. The music was great and it added hugely to the atmosphere in the bar on each night. I’ll certainly be calling in again in my next trip to Inis Mór!More

Unfortunately we did not eat here as it was too windy to eat outside. It poured rain when we were there and we had our small dog with us. There was no where to go.

We are just back from glamping in the Aran islands for 2 days. There was 3 families 6 adults and 7 kids. On the first evening we decided to eat here. A lovely menu with some great dishes on it. A few of us had...the beer battered fish & chips. A lovely tasty piece of fish in a crisp batter with chips. It was served with a side of coleslaw and salad. 2 of the ladies had the Tian of crab and prawn. Presentation here was class. A very tasty dish where the reports from the 2 ladies as the plates got cleaned quickly. 2 of younger kids had chicken nuggets & chips. Then the rest of the kids went for the spicy chicken wings and sides of chips. Silence was golden while eating followed by empty bowls and plates. Waiting staff were friendly and food came on time. A lovely spot to sit outside to eat in on a good day. Will definitely be back when go to the Aran islands again.More

Honestly this place was the best of a bad lot on the island and that isn't a compliment, while the staff were nice enough the food was below average, I would say like any of the places we ate on the island because they are...not expecting repeat business they do not care if you have a good or bad experience, a perfect example of this was when I asked if I could have my salad without peppers and was told no they were already made up, I mean seriously it is 2022, I am paying for my food and it was not cheap and they could not accommodate a simple request like this. If you are looking for great food and customer service avoid Inis Mor, in the 4 days we spent here both of the above were very hard to find which was such a pity as the island itself was lovelyMore

There are only two things on the menu for kids, sausage and chips and chicken nuggets and chips. Boys had enough of Nuggets and sausages as this is all that is on the menus for kids. There was an adult pasta dish on the menu...and my 7 year old wanted pasta so I asked if he could have plain pasta. This was refused as it was “not on the menu”. I also asked if the other child could have mash and veg instead of chips with the chicken nuggets. Both the mash and veg had to be ordered as side dishes. I also asked for gravy with the mash but they had no gravy. I got chicken salad on avocado which was not great. The fish and chips seemly was nice. Very bad experience and staff were not willing to accommodate in any way. Would not recommend. The blue restaurant in front of the bar has excellent food.More

The chowder was passable, as in the other restaurants on the island, the seafood pasta the worst ever. 3 mussles. a couple of pieces of salmon, carrots, red peppers and a hell of a lot of turmeric and flour. So offensive.

The atmosphere is classic Aran Islands laid back. Huge portions and perfectly prepared meals. The owner even made my grandson chocolate milk (which turned out to be hot cocoa) for breakfast. 👍👍👍👍🙄

We had lunch here today and really enjoyed ourselves. We had fish burgers; fresh fish in Heineken batter. Food was delicious and there was a nice atmosphere. There were a few local older men at the bar, and the young barmaid treated them with respect...and kindness.More
