Arrived with two kids on a Saturday afternoon without reservation. Warmly welcomed by friendly host who recommended several dishes. Fish pie was excellent followed by a fantastic creme brulee. We also had scampi and kids had chicken guojons & chips. Lovely cosy decor and warm friendly atmosphere. Bill was very reasonable. Well worth a visit

We ate dinner at Mitchell's. The menu was full of excellent options that were reasonably priced. It was a special occasion so my husband and our one year old had dinner. The restaurant is not particularly child friendly, we felt quite awkward for the first few minutes and several times considered leaving, despite visiting early in the evening. The waiter... More

We had a lovely table by the fire and a really warm welcome from the owner – perfect start to a great meal, particularly coming in from a cold October day on the west coast. The menu was full of great seafood options and everything we tried was delicious. All the seafood restaurants favourites like fish pie and chowder done... More

We had no plans but had heard the area provided good seafood and found Mitchells. we were not disappointed. We live in Queensland Australia and consider the seafood here to be first class - and it is in... More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch in Mitchell's on our way through Clifden and were very impressed with the quality of the seafood. We ordered the seafood platter to share, and the crab and salmon in particular were excellent. The rhubarb tart for dessert was a lovely treat. Service was great and the restaurant was cosy and relaxed. Highly recommend

An ordinary Tuesday evening on October we fell for the memu outside and went in. From the value menu we selected starter, main and desert. We learned that we could have been satisfied with only two of the three. The food was well prepared and look very inviting. It tasted well also. We can only recommend this restaurent if you... More

Great seafood! Try the muscles, they were the best I have ever had! The stuffed chicken was amazing as well, the steak not so much. The staff was friendly.

We were lucky enough to be told about this place before we left on our trip, so I called and made a reservation a few weeks ahead of our planned dinner, which turned out to be a great move. The place was packed, except for one table that had a reservation sign on it, and yes, it turned out to... More
