Good food

Nice restaurant. We had the lamb shank and seared salmon. Both dishes excellent. Service was very pleasant if a little slow.

Lovely restaurant, recommended by a few locals. Lovely menu, carefully chosen, friendly service and a easier to give them business. Steak was gorgeous and if you ask for a recommended wine, they happily oblige. Lovely people.

We started off with lovely mussels and a nice glass of Temperanillo. Then the mains of lamb shank for both of us was very poor. It was not cooked enough and the jus was too runny - for 1 starter, 2 mains & a glass of red & a beer for under €70 was not good value for money!

We went into this restaurant because they had fresh seared salmon on the menu. It was superb. So were the green vegetables and small potatoes that were combined with pesto. Then we had dessert. I had a rhubarb and apple frangipani and my friend had a strawberry and white chocolate brulee. Both excellent. Service was pleasant and appropriate. Highly recommended.

We have dined here on two occasions and both of which were not great. We decided to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt so as to speak so we dined there for a second time. The "only" part of the meal which was nice was the actual meat and fish which we chose. The accompanying vegetables were warm,... More

We stopped here for a light lunch. I had the most amazing chowder in a long time. Partner has great salad. Lovely service and as the sun was shining we were able to sit outside. So relaxing. I would highly recommend here

What a find. In our view the best restaurant in Clifden. Food really good and the staff friendly, helpful and attentive but giving you time to linger over your meal. We did not feel rushed at all. Do please go you will not be disappointed.

We arrived really late, so late that we probably should have been turned away but they opened their doors and kitchen to us with a smile. The staff were absolutely spot on, good fun and really helpful in suggesting wine for our meal. The food was tasty! All our plates were picked clean by the end - an excellent sign.... More

We ate here just before Easter and has a very tasty meal - the kids had pizza, my wife had a chicken salad and I had pasta with salmon in a cream sauce. For dessert we had a very nice apple and forest fruit pudding and also chocolate fondue. Everything was served in a timely fashion. Restaurant ambiance was very... More
