Best calamari ever, melt in the mouth. Great service friendly but very professional. Waiter knowledgable and helpful about the wine list.

Excellent from the moment we walked in. Nothing was an issue and food was fantastic. My wife had the oysters and she asked if she could have a prawn and crab open sandwich which was no problem. I had the seafood platter and it was fresh and tasty. Staff and service was excellent and we also returned for dinner twice... More

We stayed in Leenane overnight, en route to Cong from Clifden, and had a wonderful dinner at Blackberry Cafe. Great atmosphere, delicious food made with local ingredients, and very friendly service. Highly recommended!

I would definitely recommend everyone to stop at this restaurant. I went there yesterday for lunch with my partner and my parents and the food was fabulous. First of all the restaurant is in a beautiful village with a wonderful scenery. Moreover, the staff was really welcoming even though it was really busy! We had mussels, Irish stew and fish... More

So welcoming by the owner/son. The view of the water along with the food was a perfect way to end out day. Tastefully decorated, small seating & the food will wow you. Very clean, thank you for your service.

Stop here and try the Calamari!....not the usual rubber-bands in batter, but melt-in-the-mouth morsels straight from the water....then try the fishcakes....not an ounce of breadcrumb or potato filler in sight...just crammed with salmon and white fish...if only there were more like this....visited twice in April 2017 , and worth every Euro !
