Always Reliable

When in Clifden we nearly always eat at "Off The Square" - sometimes a Main Meal and sometimes just a bowl of Soup. It is always good and reasonably priced. There are always people eating here - a good sign. The food is wholesome. The staff are pleasant. The wash-rooms are clean and... read more

Called in here when passing through town and have to say was glad we did. Lovely country styled bar with exceptionally friendly waiting staff. We had a steak and a chicken dinner. Both were deliciously tasty and steak was huge and cooked to perfection. Defiantly would call again and recommend to others.

This was available on a busy Saturday night - food was pretty good but definitely good value for the price. The portions were big so come hungary.

Even though our waiter was not the best we've had, we enjoyed our food. The dessert was memorable! Don't forget to order the chocolate cake, you won't regret it!

My partner's food was excellent but I am vegetarian and there was nothing suitable on the menu. I had the chicken pasta without chicken.Waiting staff were lovely. We also had breakfast here a couple of mornings and really enjoyed our breakfast.

This is a strange place - in a nice way... We dined in most restaurants/hotels in Clifden and this has the best food of all (try the monkfish wrapped in bacon - delicious). And the prices are fantastic - 10 euro for some meals! The reason i docked a mark was that the service is very slow and the waiting... More

Dined here recently in a party of four. We all had the specials for the evening: Sea bass, mussels and Irish stew. The sea bass and mussels were superb. The Irish stew was flavorsome but inedible as it was very gritty. When we explained that the stew was not edible and asked what the grit was the answer came back... More

This is another of our favourite haunts, we have eaten here ever since the restaurant opened, a few years ago. The menu has changed a bit over the years, but the roasts can be recommended, as can fish and chips or turkey on ham with mash and veg.
