“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

This excellent small friendly restaurant serves a very good selection of local seafood 3of us had the calamari starter and it was the tenderest that I have ever tasted. I followed it with it with excellent mussels, large and perfectly cooked. Another of our party had superb seafood platter, so generous that it was a struggle to finish. This is a very busy restaurant and booking is advised. Service was good and prompt.

“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I had a late lunch there two weeks ago after receiving two recommendations from locals and it was just delicious. The food was simply delicious. I had breaded calamari, the best I have ever eaten, the sauce to eat the calamari with was a perfect blend of savors, the bread was reallly good too and the dessert (chocolate nut pudding if I remember the name corectly) just perfect, not too sweet or heavy after the calamari. The prices were very reasonable too. Good food, good price, good service and the decoration was nice too.
Really a place to recommend, no wonder this is the first place that the locals will tell you about.

We dined here the two nights we were in Clifden - Food was excellent as was the service. 3 course special evening meal is very good value. It is advisable to book in advance though

“Good quality seafood restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

We were told by our B&B owner that we'd be lucky to get in as they would be booked up. And we were confused over opening times. However as we walked past the restaurant about 5.30pm it was open and we were offered a table after 9 unless we would be prepared to eat upstairs then. That's what we did.
Quiet, unassuming service and a good menu mostly of seafood. My oysters were superb at €22.00 for an excellent dozen. The fillet of haddock was equally good. Three courses with a bottle of affordable wine from a good list across a reasonable price range was €122.
