A good menu with a wide variety of seafood on offer in addition to a few other choices. The food and service were good but not great. The scallops, for example, were covered in a thick sauce which took away the potential subtleties of the tastes. There was a nice ambience and service was good, if a little clinical! A little too expensive in relation to culinary quality.

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.

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
