Just returned from a lovely long weekend in Connemara, and enjoyed two lovely meals in Mitchell's. Overall, the food was fabulous - a big emphasis on fresh seafood, which was superb. Had divine crab claws in garlic and chilli butter on both nights, as the first night they were so delicious. On the first night, had a delightful main of haddock with mussels which came with a generous helping of very fresh vegetables. This was delicious. Had the catch of the day on the second night, which happened to be hake, served on a bed of colcannon. The fish was great, but it would have been nice to have had some vegetables with it, instead of the offered potatoes. Dessert on both nights was an amazing meringue confection - was so good I had it twice. Service was very good, highly recommend this little restaurant.

Mitchell's is always a pleasant experience and worth the trip to Clifden. The fish tastes incredibly fresh and is allowed to speak for itself rather than being smothered in lots of distracting sauces (although these too are usually first class). I have never ordered meat in Mitchells because of the excellent fish options. The atmosphere is great (downstairs is much nicer than the upstairs dining room)and the service is very friendly. All in all a great restaurant in my experience.
