We had 14, all family and relatives, that visited Clifden for several days. We made reservations for the group and they were able to slide tables to give us a long table for all of us. The staff was very friendly, service was great, and the staff chatted and joked with us. The food was good ... loved the fish... More

On a cool, damp, November day, the tourists could be found in the many shops, bars and restaurants in Clifden and this restaurant offered comfort, good service and excellent food at reasonable prices. I would recommend it.

Good restaurant. Right off the square as the name implies. The food was great and so was the staff. Atmosphere was cozy.

Just back from a meal for two in Off the Square. Chowder and Garlic Mussels to start - which were superb - and 10oz steaks for mains - melt in the mouth beautiful. Kim, our server, was also fantastic. Beautiful restaurant, lovely decor and ambience. Just wonderful. Thank you for sensational food, and service. 11/10

This venue is known for its seafood fare. Indeed, some of my dining partners had seafood. And, it looked spectacular! But, I had notice a TA post lamenting the duck was no longer on the menu - that it had been soooo tasty. Well - when I looked at the menu ... there it was! Called "the Unluck Duck" on... More

Good friendly service to be had in this place. I had the Irish stew which was delicious, instead of a thick gravy like base, which is ok, this came with a lovely light consomme in which the vegetables and lamb swam finely. Very tasty. Usually always good spuds in Ireland no change here. We shared triple dollop portion of icecream,... More
