“Good Chowder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

I had the chowder with sandwich option here and it was packed with fish a real meal in itself. Not overly impressed with the atmosphere and the coffee was terrible! but I would try it again for a main.

“Overpriced and poor quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Comes to something when a fish dish is more expensive in Clifden than in Paris or London.

Outdated and the house wine was undrinkable.

What a shame but generally Clifden could do with an uplift in good places to eat.

“Seafood restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We recently had lunch at the Off The Square restaurant in Clifden. The seafood chowder and sandwich combo we had was quite good. The seafood chowder was very creamy and tasty. However service was poor, nobody seemed to care.

The menu list holds a nice selection of local seafood.

“Excellent seafood restaurant”

If you're looking for a great seafood restaurant in clifden look no further. Recommend the crab claws, scallops, mussels.... In fact any seafood option is a good one!

“Great fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We had lovely fish and chips here. Kids got them too and really enjoyed them. Good size portion and nice side salad.

Our waitress wasn't very friendly, she had such moody face. Rest staff seemed grand. Would love eat here again.
