Food excellent. Very fishy (fish being its speciality). Ought to book at table if going in the evening. We didn't but went on a Monday evening in April early and still busy! Just found the service a bit too quick and efficient. No time to linger before you are pushed onto the next course. You got the feeling they were... More

Popped in for lunch and was suitably impressed so returned for dinner that evening. This is a top class establishment , with excellent food at reasonable rates. It is also tastefully decorated and the staff are ultra professional with excellent manner. I would definitely return.

Food was excellent and good value. We had soup which they serve with soda bread or the largest scones you have ever seen and also the Ham and Leek quiche which was served with a large salad.

Had an early dinner at Mitchell's recently, so no problem in getting a table. It's probably the best restaurant in Clifden, but it is expensive. That said, the food and service were faultless.

Highly recommended on TA, and by our hotel folks too. We visited Mitchell's for a meal and enjoyed it. Good food, great service, great value. Pity, we had only a short stay in Clifden.

Didn't expect too many diners on an April tuesday night but the restaurant was full, with people being turned away. There was a good reason for that… Excellent fish. We had lunch here earlier in the day and decided to book for dinner based on the lunch we had. It wasn't a mistake. We had perfectly cooked hake and a... More

We had a wonderful lunch in Mitchell's. We found the place by chance when we were on Wild Atlantic Highway route, we saw it had a Georgina O'Sullivan recommended. We had seafood chowder & homemade salmon & cold fish cakes with a mini chowder & salad for lunch. Both were delicious. I would definitely recommend it! There was lots of... More
