This restaurant is no longer open. It used to be excellent but has been closed for some time now. It has become a gift shop. You can still buy local meat at Calvey's butchers next door.

We tried the Achill dish which was the rack also try the fresh lobster and the huge steaks. Service was friendly and professional. A relaxed atmosphere with a busy buzz of happy diners. A... More

Three from our party ordered soup as a starter, there was no bread served with the soup. I asked the waitress was there no bread, she looked annoyed to be asked and... More

It was a Saturday night and it was hopping! We had to wait 30 mins for our table but it was worth it. We had goats cheese and beetroot for starter and tagliatelle and prawns for mains - delicious. The highlight though was the rhubarb & strawberry crumble and the little pot of custard on the side - have to... More

That about sums up Calvey's, an unassuming restaurant on the side of the road in Keel. The interior is very dated, not unclean or unpleasant, but dated, which initially was disappointing. But, the service was very good indeed. I was a little awkward and ordered two starters instead of a main and was very impressed. The tempura prawns were big... More
