My husband and I dined here on Saturday July 23rd. We had an excellent meal and a bottle of wine for just over one hundred euros. My only small quibble for want of a better word was the proximity of tables to each other. The waiters were very professional and worked very well in the space afforded them!

We stopped here for lunch and were able to get a table for two. The service was friendly and quick and the food was just excellent. We both had fish dishes and they were cooked and seasoned to perfection. I highly recommend Mitchell's.

ate lunch here with friends, which is better value than dinner and easier to get a table. We had the fishcakes, mussels, crab salad (excellent) fish pie ( also excellent) and some lovely deserts. all delicious. Staff were fine, they could possibly have been a bit friendlier but they left us alone for the meal which suited us fine. overall,... More

Booked before we arrived. Smart buzzy restaurant. Food was very good and our Hungarian waiter was lovely and very helpful. Some of the other staff looked very stressed and found it hard to crack a smile but the restaurant was full. I had the vegetarian option which was lovely. The rest had mussels and one had fish. All very good.

We (3 of us) all had meals with fish and all were great. I had the fish pie which I loved. It was a really good meal in a lovely space.

We enjoyed good fish and a good steak in this quaint, bright and friendly restaurant. The service was attentive and prices were OK for a tourist destination.

Went here this evening and my was the food amazing. Such fresh fish it was to die for. Breads wonderful and veg great. The oysters and mussels fantastic. My only hopefully constructive comment is that the all male staff upstairs could do with having a little more warmth in their approach. The tall chap who brought our main courses just... More

Had the steak and dessert. Cost about €28 for the steak and €5 for the dessert - these prices are approx. Well worth it. Staff very friendly. Would advise to book as seen people turned away as the resturant was full. A must try!!!

The elegant proprietor J J Mitchell makes you feel like you are visiting in response to his personal invitation . You will not want to rush . You will not want to leave. In fact you may tarry in the environs a little longer just for an excuse for another meal. Maybe lunch this time? First rate fare and service.... More
