Fabulous food and service

Booked Marconi's restaurant for a party of 17. I had heard good things about this restaurant locally and it exceeded all expectations. Wonderful food, effective and friendly service, warm atmosphere. In short a fabulous place and extremely accommodating staff. Five stars.

Good food, good selection, great location, good atmosphere, friendly staff. Only downside was that you feel a bit rushed; in fact the two times we booked the 6.30 sitting we were told that we must to be out by 8.15 and that rushed feeling flowed through to the 8pm mark (you feel the waiting staff are asking you to get...

Excellent,tasty and one of the best restaurants I have been in in sometime. The smell in the reception area of the hotel is a little offputting when you first arrive, we booked our table early but when we returned the smell had abated, We believe the smell may have been due to Lilly's that were in a vase near the...

Busy restaurant, great food and very helpful and friendly staff. Ideal place for a meal at a reasonable price, especially after many pubs stop serving food in the evening.

We stopped in here with our three children for dinner last week. We had mussels, which were fresh and wonderful, fresh fish, filet of beef, and Connemara lamb. It was all fresh, local, and outstanding. The service was wonderful, too. I highly recommend it for a delicious meal in Clifden.

Staff were super accomodating as we had no reservation. Went out of their way to get us a table and hosted us in the hotel lobby until it was ready. Food was outstanding and service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Attentive staff and delicious food and wine. I particularly liked the pan-fried (well, where else would it be fried?) hake

At Marconi's we had the early bird formula. We found it difficult to make our choice between all the starters and main courses, and choose for the mussels in coconut cream and the tion crab/salmon/prawn as starter and the hake as main dish. The best mussels ever, all the other courses were very good too.

We walked into the restaurant without a booking and were immediately welcomed, despite the fact that the place was packed. They found us a table and we enjoyed ourselves thereafter. The seafood is very good, both starters and mains. Desserts were OK. The only real question I had was the necessity to serve both chips and (good) boiled potatoes to... More
