“All hail fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Best fish and chips I had while in Ireland. If you can make it to Clifden and you don't eat here...you will be missing out on a true gem. The homemade tartar sauce is fantastic as well! Great atmosphere to boot!

“Superb food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

We visited Guys on two nights during our stay in Clifden. I have to say the food was fantastic with the service on the first visit excellent. We returned the second night to experience some of the dishes we hadn't the previous night. Although the food was excellent the service was a little lacking with tables who'd ordered after us receiving their meals long before us, although no major issue as the live music was great and the atmosphere brill it did stop them getting a 10/10 the staff were very apologetic and as I say not an issue for us on the whole but worth noting.

“Best Seafood Chowder!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

One of the locals recommended this restaurant for dinner and we were glad we went! The seafood chowder was amazing and the presentation of the food was also lovely. Very reasonable pricing and great tasting food. The atmosphere was classy for a local pub and the service was quick and friendly!

“Great Lamb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

It was my meal in Ireland and I loved it. Very friendly (like all Irish people) good atmosphere and good beer/wine.
We had Beef & Guinness stew and lamb stew with creamy mashed potato. Both were brilliant, large portions and very tasty. Mashed potato was unexpectedly delicious, full of butter.

I must say the burger on the next table didn't look anything special.

I would definitely recommend for a good meal/drinks.

“Best Lamb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

It was my first meal in Ireland and absolutely loved it.
Great atmosphere, great beer - wine and a fab food.
We had lamb stew and beef & guinness stew both were faultless. Lamb came with creamy mashed potato and it was unexpectedly delicious; full of butter.
