“Ok food, good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Food ok, not the greatest but generous portions. No WIFI was annoying when advertised it! Good for a rainy day lunch stop.

Lovely staff and food in a relaxed atmosphere - recommend going after 8pm for a quieter meal for couples :) Also the crab claws as a starter are divine!!

“Can be quite chaotic, children's meals went from good to not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We ate there as part of our bank holiday package with the Clifden station house hotel. To start with, we had a lovely night, really nice food, very friendly and chatty staff. As the weekend progressed and the hotel and restaurant filled up, things deteriorated quite a bit. Orders were forgotten, drinks not brought - and what really annoyed us the children's menu was shrunk to a pretty paltry choice and the resulting plate of spaghetti was almost too small to mention.

“Save room for dessert!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We ate here numerous times during our trip to Clifden, and the fact that we came back indicates that we were satisfied customers. I loved the pizza - on a thinnish crust, so it wasn't too heavy.

The decor was a real treat, and spoke to the restaurant's heritage as a railway station. Do yourself a favor and check out all the posters on the wall... they're both instructive and charming.

For me, though, I have to admit that the highlight was dessert - I had chocolate fudge cake each time we went. I'm usually a pretty nice spouse, sharing and all that - but my husband didn't get a single bite! Yup, it's that good.

The location is nice, too - in the middle of a cluster of stores and a museum, and just a block or two away from our B&B (the Dun Ri).
