Very pleasant surroundings. Warm and cozy! Great appetizers at fair prices. The burger was delicious. Excellent attentive servers. I'll go back when I am in town again.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Arrived late into Durango and were unsure where to eat that night. Durango is not a huge place, but it has masses of character and several options for restaurants.

It was the cottage pie that did it - I just fancied some British food as opposed to the American food we'd had for several days and so we gave it a go. Glad to say we were not disappointed as the cottage pie was delicious! The menu was varied and the bar and restaurant had a good ambience and the prices were very good too.

Service was very good and we enjoyed a very pleasant couple of hours there.

Highly recommended!

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The Irish Embassy is located in the heart of Durango's downtown. From the outside it is impossible to know of what waits inside. The bar is set up just like you would find in Ireland. Decent prices and a god selection of food and drink await the weary shopper.

“good food, good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I think our server forgot about us for a bit, but the food was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere. We were seated quickly and really liked the feel of the place.

“Best fish in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

If you're in Durango and hungry for fish and chips, then this is the place. The make it two ways, lightly breaded or beer battered and I can't tell you which one is better. When we go I get some of each though my wife says batter is better. It's a pretty fair representation of an English (Irish) pub, at least for Durango, and that's the atmosphere you get. They have a pretty good menu of pub food, but the fish and chips are king. Ask for a seat by the big windows and you can people watch. The view is probably real nice in the snow too, though there wasn't much snow in July.
