Mitchell's is one of those restaurants that makes you feel good, and it has been making people feel good for more than twenty years now. The rooms are bright and simple, and everything in the restaurant gleams with polished care. The style is stripped-back and unpretentious, calm and colourful, a room that everyone can enjoy.
But it's not just the room that feels right: the service and the food in JJ Mitchell's restaurant enjoy a consistency that you – frankly – don't expect in a busy tourist town like Clifden. A friend, who is also an industry professional, once described Mitchell's to us as ‘the most consistent restaurant I know from visits over the last five years’. That is an incredible accolade, but the team here earn every word of it, and never make the mistake of resting on their laurels.
Their people-pleasing dishes – fine fish and chips, a good chowder, crab with brown bread, good fish cakes, good lunchtime sandwiches – bring people back time and again at lunchtime, and while the evening menu is more extensive, the team show they are in full control with every plate sent out. JJ and his team know what they do best, and they do it every season, making Mitchell's the real solid-sender in Clifden.
