This restaurant was highly recommended to us. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations. We had booked for the first sitting of the evening. We arrived at 6.45pm. There were 3 people ahead of us waiting to be seated - they were brought to their seats immediately and we were left standing in the doorway for a few minutes before... More

There is not much bad things to be said about Marconi's. The service was very snappy. I ordered the stirloin steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly👌. Their peppercorn suace was the cherry on the cake. If you have a sweet tooth I would highly recommend their chocolate lava cake. If your in Clifden you must eat here.

I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. For that alone, this place gets a very good. The service was so bad, however, that I wanted to take my meal outside where the level of service might match my expectations.

This is a busy spot and easy to see why. Our family of five was well looked after and food is pretty good. Marconi's is part of Foyles Hotel and is a fine restaurant. Meals for the five of us , including a bottle of wine and soft drinks came to €150 and was good value at that. Would certainly... More

Had a lovely meal here - I had the page and the chicken with spinach which was really nice, my husband had the seafood chowder and lamb. Staff very friendly and food nice. Prices reasonable for this style of restaurant. We were lucky to get a walk in before the rush. Would come back again if in the region.

We were there with a crowd of friends, 19 of us. We were in a side room with our two long tables and there were two other long tables that were also seating groups. Very elegant. I thought the service was just a bit off, but that often seems the case with a crowd. At my table several of us... More

We arrived on a very busy night, but were seated and served in good time. Very pleasant atmosphere and courteous waitstaff. The food was very good, rack of lamb done to perfection with mint sauce as it should be. Vegetables and bread as well. Would definitely recommend.

Thank Slothita
