“Reliable Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We've been going to Mitchell's since our teenagers were in buggies and nappies and it remains a reliable spot for good food at a sensible price. Today it was hake and chips at €14 and a well made burger at €12 all served by pleasant staff in warm and comfortable surroundings. No complaints.

“Hard to Fault”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We ordered from the early menu - available till 6.30 even @ weekends - three courses for under €30. I always think that the mark of a great restaurant is when the special / early menu is as high in quality as the a la carte and we weren't disappointed. The food was incredible, the wine was @ the perfect temperature and the service was professional - genuine and friendly. We got a table downstairs which was lovely as we could talk - upstairs seemed to be large groups and was noisy. The atmosphere was just lovely... The only one fault I could find was that the peppermint tea wasn't fresh - just a pre-bought t-bag. I'd highly recommend this spot.

“Fresh and Delicious Sea Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Mitchell's Restaurant is a tastefully decorated restaurant in the heart of Clifden which, we were told, has been serving mostly happy customers for many years. The evening that we dined there, I ordered a very fresh and quite large salad with a very big bowl of mussels to follow. The food was absolutely delicious. The service, one waiter in particular, was less than perfect. Had I been given an idea of the difference in size between the appetizer and entrée size of mussels, I would have ordered the appetizer size. Needless to say, I did not leave Mitchell's hungry!
