Great meal and efficient service at The Chalet

We loved the sole! All the dishes we picked were tasty. Note that it's advisable to reserve a table.

We visited on a Saturday night in August and had a delicious meal for two in the Chalet. The staff were welcoming, helping and unobtrusive. Service was very efficient. We had mussels and crab claws to start. Each plate was very generous, fresh plump local mussels in a garlic broth. The crab claws and crab meat were super fresh, tangy... More

This restaurant serves mostly fish but they do offer alternative meats. However their fresh fish is what they are known for.

My husband and I ate in the Chalet on the first night of our holidays in Achill and again on our second last night. We had never eaten here before as we always ate in the same restaurant for all our holidays in Achill but this has now been converted into a gift shop. The chalet offers a lovely location... More

I've been wanting to eat at The Chalet every summer we've stayed in Achill, but being the only fish eater in our house I've always met with resistance when I suggested eating there. But this year my husband heard that they also serve non fish dishes so was willing to accompany me. And we were not disappointed. The restaurant is... More

Whilst visiting Achill we spent a lovely evening in this fine restaurant where the good was delicious and service was very pleasant. We were delighted to see that that the restaurant was busy in the early evening and would recommend this restaurant. If we didn't know about this restaurant, we could have missed it as the signage could be improved,... More

Presence was very welcoming, Restaurant ambience very relaxing and superb service and food. Being a seafood restaurant thought it necessary to have some kind of Seafood, albeit I went of piste a little with my Main, having the Thai Prawn & Monkfish Tail curry, which flavour wise was magnificent. The starter were surprisingly filling and extremely tasty, again went with... More
