“The Chalet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Always eat in this restaurant when we visit Achill. Great food especially seafood, excellent staff and always a warm welcome. Great value . I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Well done to Julie the owner for running such a fab place.

“much room for improvement.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Had eaten here before and decided to try again to see if any improvement was made... it wasn't! My seabass was so dried out even the dismissal sauce couldn't irrigate it! Our waiter was dismissive and sloppy. The steak was cooked as required but came with wrong sides. This restaurant is self promoting 50 years in business so somewhere along the line the eye has come off the ball. You have great potential but unless you address some staff issues you won't celebrate another mile stone. Well done on 50 years surviving the short Achill season. That achievement is to be congratulated.
