Good for: Scenic view, Local cuisine
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Relaxed Family run Restaurant and Hotel with breath taking sunset in the bay over dinner, fine locally sourced seafood(many local meat options also) and home grown vegetables and salad. Cosy open fire places in the restaurant make even the coolest of days enjoyable and a large open turf fire in the Bar is ideal for having pre dinner and after dinner drinks in front of. The sun terrace overlooking the bay is a must for pre dinner drinks on fine days. Taxi service available please enquire when reserving for dinner.

Please also see my review of the Ardagh Hotel which also includes some comments on the restaurant. My wife and I stayed at the hotel in July of 2012 and as I sit writing this in January 2013, the meal at the restaurant still remains one of my highlights of the year.

Clifden seems to have a number of good options for food but don't miss this one - you will not be dissapointed.

If you have the option, ask to be seated near the window. The views overlooking the sound are to die for. Time your meal if you can (time of year depending of course) for sunset and on a day when the sun has a chance to make an appearance you will be treated to one of natures great shows.

The food matches the surroundings - memorable! Everything about the meal suggests that care and attention has been taken to give you something of high quality.

I've been to some very nice restaurants over the years but this is in my Top 5 for the overall experience.

Overall our meal was excellent. The seafood in particular stood out, and the desserts were outstanding. Good service, and a great view of the water. The only change I would make would be to light the room less, as it didn't have a very intimate feel about it.
