Best mussels in the west

Travelled the west coast of Ireland in August, eating a lot of sea food along the way. The meal we had here was fantastic, cannot fault it. Special mention to the mussels, best I had on the trip.

Visited for a family meal to finish off our stay in Clifden. Staff were courteous and friendly and service was prompt. Atmosphere was cosy and pleasant. Food was mixed. The starters were excellent but the main courses were disappointing. Only one of our party rated their main course as good. One of our salads had a foreign object in it... More

On a really wet and dismal day in Clifden, we took refuge here and had an excellent lunch. Great fish and great service. Highly recommended !

Lovely food and staff were fine, but could have been a bit more smiley and friendly. They provided a professional service, but lacked the Irish warmth we have become accustomed to in this country. Fish pie went down a treat with my husband, and the crab meat I had was fresh and tasty. We would visit again, and would simply... More

Had heard good things about this restaurant so we were looking forward to our meal. While the menu and the quality of the food was good,it felt like the staff lacked warmth and friendliness. Overall,the experience wasn't as good as we expected.

Our expectations were very high thanks to the tripadvisor reviews. Dinner was just OK, nothing more. The service was great.

The standard here is excellent - from their in-house baked breads to the locally sourced seafood everything is fresh and of the highest quality. I've eaten here a few times and have only good things to say. The chocolate, nut & banana pudding is a personal favourite & probably the nicest dessert I've ever eaten!
