We had dinner for New Years Eve. Very poor menu and bad presentation of the food, vegetables looked old. The restaurant looks like there has not been a maintenance for many years, it did not feel cosy. Staff very friendly but not organised and not dressed as waiters, just wearing the street clothes.

Found this place by accident and it turned out to be a good one. When dined there we were made very welcome and told of the specials along with the menu, one of the specials was Irish Lamb stew and a pint for 15 euros great value, I had the battered fresh fish and chips which was mouthwatering to taste...

Went here on Halloween night after checking out others whilst walking around Clifden. First impressions is that it has a homely feel to it. The staff are very kind and attentive and the menu although not abundant in choices, will sure suit anyone's pallet. I had the steak which just melted in the mouth, but for me the Chocolate pudding... More

We discovered this restaurant while walking around Clifden searching for a dinner destination. We were pleasantly surprised with the great menu options, the romantic atmosphere and the exceptionally good and beautifully presented dinner. The desserts are not to be missed!

From the outside this place looks like a small cafe but inside it is a spacious restaurant with good food and excellent service. Been here a few times now and have never been disappointed. They'll even fetch a draft Guinness from the pub across the road, though the wine list is perfectly acceptable. The duck is excellent. Well worth a... More

We ate here on a family outing ( 4 adults) in August 2015. We had mussels as a starter. The portion size was generous and the quality was excellent. We followed this up with various selections from the fish and steak menu . Again the quality of this food was second to none. The dessert course was also extremely good.... More

We wandered through Clifden looking for a place for 8 people to have dinner. Off the Square had a wide ranging menu at very reasonable prices, and had lots of space for a large party, so we booked and no one was disappointed. We had lamb, fish, stew, sausages and they were all delicious. Every plate was left without a... More
