had a super meal last night. Good choice of regular menu plus ' specials' board. All beef is locally sourced and identifiable, seafood also local. At the moment it's still winter season so is only open three days over the weekend so you do need to book as it gets very busy! Comfortable seating, staff very attentive and courteous. We... More

Five friends and I went to dinner on a Saturday night recently, we had booked as we heard it was popular. The restaurant was very busy and all tables were full when we arrived, we were seated and served straight away. The menu has a great variety. We all chose something different from the starters and main courses. The food... More

Look at my review under Foyles Hotel filed earlier today. Unfortunately I wrote the review before I found that the restaurant has its own Tripadvisor entry !... in summary Excellent dinner, excellent service, all round perfect.

Three friends and I ate here on Saturday November 2nd. The restaurant is top class. The decor is warm and inviting. The choice of starter and main course is extensive. The quality of the food is excellent and matched by the service. I would heartily recommend this venue to any local or guest.

No trip to Clifden is complete without a visit to Marconi's in Foyle's Hotel. The early bird menu is particularly good value and includes items like steak and scallops with no extra supplement.

The food here is a little pricey but it is well worth it as it was absolutely delicious. My husband and I both had steak and it was without doubt one of the best steaks we have ever had. Deserts were also fabulous

We had a fabulous meal here last weekend, during the Arts Festival. The dining room was busy which is always a good sign, the staff are great, friendly and attentive. The food is lovely, brilliant atmosphere. I would highly recommend The Marconi at Foyles Hotel. You won't be disappointed!

Great food always served well, staff friendly and inconspicuous when needed. Not a large menu but everything we tasted here over the years we've been going has been excellent. Very busy place so try to book beforehand.
