We really enjoyed the food and service. The mushroom starter and rack of lamb were delicious although the gluten free jus served on one of the rack of lambs was not great. The Thai chicken starter I had was also good and a friend said the monk fish main course was good also. Lovely staff who were extremely helpful.

The staff at Mitchells recommended Marconi and we were not dissappointed. We hadHake and rack of lamb both of which were great. We started with duck confit spring rolls which we would recommend.

This restaurant is in the Foyles Hotel. Like the hotel, it is beautifully decorated. It has a lot of interesting Marconi memorabilia. It is a nice restaurant with good food and service. A step up from our normal pub fare in Ireland.

In the Foyle Hotel, Marconi's is classy and the food, delicious! Great service, but be sure to get a reservation. We ate here three times during our six day stay in Clifden, it was that good! Salmon, seafood chowder, butternut squash...I could go on and on about the food! A must visit, and we will definitely return!

A fantastic restaurant where service, quality of food and professionalism can be taken for granted. Eating with six others the experience of all received the same commendation and praise. I would recommend that Marconi's be on your list of eating houses if you are visiting the West of Ireland make sure you take time out to visit this quality 'eating-house'!

The B&B proprietor suggested I visit Mitchell's but as soon as I said I was a solo diner, the available table suddenly disappeared. The Marconi was happy to oblige though and I felt welcomed, and was served by what seemed exclusively French staff during the evening. The food (seafood chowder, lamb shank with mashed potato and vegetables) was tasty but... More

This is not a pub, it is excellent dining. The food was excellent, from appetizer to sale, main course to dessert. All were very well presented, very perfectly prepared and tasted superb. Highly recommended by the locals. A romantic and adult experience.

I spent the last night with stomach ache and I still do not feel good at all thanks to this place. But let me tell everything. I planned the whole weekend in Clifden and before to leave I usually reserve tables on restaurant as I prefer to be free from the annoying walk around all the places, angry and with... More
