Had an early dinner at Mitchell's recently, so no problem in getting a table. It's probably the best restaurant in Clifden, but it is expensive. That said, the food and service were faultless.

Highly recommended on TA, and by our hotel folks too. We visited Mitchell's for a meal and enjoyed it. Good food, great service, great value. Pity, we had only a short stay in Clifden.

Didn't expect too many diners on an April tuesday night but the restaurant was full, with people being turned away. There was a good reason for that… Excellent fish. We had lunch here earlier in the day and decided to book for dinner based on the lunch we had. It wasn't a mistake. We had perfectly cooked hake and a... More

We had a wonderful lunch in Mitchell's. We found the place by chance when we were on Wild Atlantic Highway route, we saw it had a Georgina O'Sullivan recommended. We had seafood chowder & homemade salmon & cold fish cakes with a mini chowder & salad for lunch. Both were delicious. I would definitely recommend it! There was lots of... More

Trust me, even the locals will tell you this is the best restaurant in Clifden, it's excellent. I had the best tomato basil soup I have ever had in my life here! If you are in Clifden, this is where you should go!

We visited here in March based largely on the amazing reviews. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff great, but the food was a bit hit and miss. The starters (crab and fishcakes) were super, but my main course of turbot was for me overcooked, which was disappointing. I also thought it was expensive on the whole.

Staff are very welcoming and professional. Dining is very pleasurable and ambience is lovely. Food is very nice however it is slightly overpriced for what it is.
