We hit many restaurants in Ireland. It was like they caught the fish 5 minutes before you sat. Be sure to ask for the a la carte menu to really taste a fresh piece of fish. Comes with sides of veggies, so good!!! Also, the chowder was different and fantastic. Kids loved their meals too. Can't go wrong!

At Mitchell's you get what you should get everywhere close to the sea: fresh oysters, fresh fish, nice seafood chowder, etc., well prepared and tasty. If they had better wines on their list it would be perfect.

We had dinner at Mitchell's only one night during our 2 nights' stay in the area - wish we booked there for both nights. Very attentive staff and owner, fresh ingredients cooked in a modern style keeping traditional flavours. Great location on middle of Main Street, very pleasant interior. Booking highly recommended, they had to turn down a stream of... More

This very nice restaurant in Clifden serves lunch until 5:30 pm and dinner thereafter. Delicious starters and main courses. Make sure you leave room for dessert!!! Quality and prices are UP from the normal pub food you get everywhere else- and it is definitely worth it.

As a tour operating business we need to be sure of a premises before we recommend it to our customers. We need to be sure that the food is of an excellent standard,good value for money,service is efficient, spotlessly clean restaurant & in some cases the premises will need to be child friendly. We took a trip to this little... More

Local oysters and seafood were delicious. Reservations are required for dinner. Desserts were homemade and very good.

The food here is excellent - but pricy. They are not particularly family friendly and would prefer you didn't bring children. Also a few times we have visited the service has been a bit haphazzard.

This restaurant is why one should travel to Ireland for the food. Mitchell’s is on the Connemara shore. We went there for lunch. Nice sunny afternoon. The owner was most welcoming as we had not booked. The ladies ordered bloody marys that they said were outstanding. The men had lagers (of which they had a comfortable list). We ordered oysters...

I've eaten in Michell's many times over my many visits to the beautiful west of Ireland. It's never disappointed me but more to the point the place just seems to get better. Serving wonderful dishes and continuing to innovate is a real skill in the restaurant business. We were a family party of 8 with one small child. To start... More
