Nice dining; good seafood

Early bird menu had enough variety to be interesting. Highlights were the hake finger appetizers and buttermilk panna cotta for dessert. Rest of the meal was very good; wine selection good.

We can see how Mitchells gets its good rating. The service is ultra-efficient and the food is basically good, being fresh. So why do we rate it only three-stars? Perhaps we were unfortunate. Our table was immediately under the stairs to the first floor. The stairs are bare wood and every person taking food up and empty plates down make... More

I visited Mitchell's while taking a trip to Clifden for the day. I stopped in for something to eat after a friend recommended that I did. Food here was very good in a very cosy environment.

Wonderful meal. Loved the goat cheese tart as a starter and delicious fish pie! I felt like the price was very reasonable as well.

We were visiting Connemara last week and stumbled across the best resturant I have ever eaten in! My little boy devoured the calamari and I have to say I dont think we will ever taste such good fish again. My mother and myself shared the seafood platter and didnt mutter a word to one another for the whole meal because... More

Great seafood options. I went in for the Calamari appetizer on a recommendation. Also had an open face seafood sandwich was above average. Nice atmosphere to sit and relax next to the fire or sit upstairs and look out on the street below.

Dining at Mitchell's is always an experience. From start to finish it was just exquisite. Each time we visit Clifden Mitchell's is always on the top of our dining list. Well done to Mr. Mitchell and his staff. They make dining there a real pleasure.

We were staying at Ballynahinch castle and did not like the food or service there. This was not the case at Mitchell's - the food is very, very, tasty, prepared well, serviced very timely, efficiently and the staff are amazing.Just love it.
