Great food, great staff

We stayed in the Alcock and Brown Hotel and eat both nights of our stay in their "Gallery Restaurant". This candlelit restaurant has the most prefect atmosphere. The staff were fantastic and nothing you asked of them was too much trouble. The food was excellent- fresh and cooked to perfection. The... read more

A friend of mine recommended I ate here. It was a long drive from Galway city but it was well worth it. I booked a table for 2 and was greeted warmly at the door. The décor was very calming and the lighting combined with the background music created a lovely atmosphere. The staff were all very polite and helpful.... More

I expected more. This place is really just a coffee shop in the front of the Alcock and Brown hotel. The staff were friendly and tried hard. I had the chowder which had been highly commended in Trip advisor reviews, I found it very disappointing just some cod and salmon in a milky sauce,no mussels or other interesting shellfish. I...

I had eaten in The Gallery Restaurant previously and really liked it. While the first time was during early Spring, there seemed to be a lot of regular diners eating there. The restaurant is attached to the Alcock & Brown hotel (see separate hotel review). I recently planned a birthday dinner in The Gallery for 60 people. The chef, who... More

Just returned from dinner at The Gallery and it wasn't bad, but not memorable. Not sure how gallery is rated number 1 in town, but it clearly doesn't deserve it. We arrived early and they were already out of mussels. Instead I had the smoked salmon, which was good, but not what I really wanted. Also, I had the lamb... More

They have a great menu which is largely gluten free, menu does not indicate this which is my only minus. Chocolate mousse cake was reccommended which was the best gluten free desert I have ever had. As a local in the area I am delighted to see the Alcock back to its very best with a set menu of 3... More

This restuarant is amazing with value and all the food is amazing. We walked in here on our last day in Clifden and were amazed by how delicious the food was! I recommend that you go here at least 1/2 the time you're in Clifden.
