Great food and a warm welcome

The food was wonderful,incredibly fresh and served with a smile by the friendly staff. We would definitely eat here again if we are fortunate enough to be in the area

We were really looking forward to a night in the Chalet based on all the great reviews we read. While the service was very good, the food was disappointing. Starters were limited and mediocre. We then had the fish trio which consisted of over cooked fish and a dipping sauce which was supposed to be a citrus sauce but it... More

We have been to 10 countries on three continents and easily the best Scampi is served in the Chalet. Light as a feather and deliciously fresh. A must visit everytime we are in Achill.

I was really looking forward to visiting Achill and in particular trying the local seafood, well the Chalet didn't disappoint weather in the food or the stunning views. The decor is a little tired and a bit old fashioned and it could do with an update. The restaurant is more expensive that most of the other restaurants we visited, however... More

We ate there twice during our holiday. The menu was varied but the seafood was hard to resist even for our non fishy palates. We had fish both evenings and our guests had steaks. It was all excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful regarding places to visit. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone near Achill Island.
