Best restaurant visited in the town. Really great food & friendly service. Good bar. Easy to get taxi to/from restaurant (<10 mins wait) Only improvement is the wine list which needs an overhaul. Not that extensive and its not easy to understand their categorizations.

There was nothing wrong with the food... it was just all rather tired. Grubby menus, few specials and a rather dated selection. Everything tasted like your mother would have made in the eighties... there is nothing exciting yet it is rather expensive. Disappointing ...

The food presentation is a visual piece of art with each course cleverly presented in unusual ways.The combination of flavors is awesome. The Seating was excellent with large amounts of space between tables. That was my 6th visit and to make a long story short the food is still top quality.

Reviewed By Connemaraman - Westport, Ireland

As a regular dine-out person in Westport, I visited this restaurant to see if it still had that certain ‘something special’ that I had experienced in previous years and the answer is absolutely yes. While the menu has varied, nothing has been lost. The calamari is still the freshest and the steak still a wonderful challenge....and the service and casual ambiance is still just professionally perfect. Always a very lovely experience.

Dillons Terrace was of significant commercial importance and is steeped in local history. The stone floor in Dillons Bar originated from Kilmainham Gaol and a huge chimney breast in the bar was once used as a hopper to process grain.

It is rare these days to find a restaurant that is not only great in all departments but extremely reasonably priced. For a start the atmosphere created in the old Bond Store is wonderful and welcoming as are the staff. The food is all fresh from local suppliers who are credited on the menu. Great starters, superb main courses and wonderful desserts.
No fancy designer dishes here, good honest beautifully cooked food served on sparkling white China. For starters deep fried brie, seafood chowder, crabmeat and smoked salmon stack are among the tasty offerings. The main courses range from steak, handmade beef burgers that put fast food to shame, duck two ways and tempura battered fish and chips with fresh cod in huge portions and even superb curries. Desserts include crepes, apple and berry crumble, cheesecake of the day all priced less than €5. The whole menu is outstanding value. Good reasonable wine list and great Guinness. It shows it can be done at a price that will not break the bank. In fact it was so good one dining companion queried if they had left something off the bill it was so reasonable! The toilet facilities are absolutely spotless and it is a great place to go for an enjoyable evening. It makes you wonder why others cannot produce menus of this standard at such reasonable prices. Absolutely fabulous and I will be returning often.

An Port Mor Restaurant

An Port Mór Restaurant is run by Chef-Proprietor Frankie Mallon. Our philosophy is to use seasonal, artisan produce from local suppliers. House specialities include pot roasted pigs cheeks with black pudding & apple and vanilla sauce and 21 day dry-aged sirloin. The main emphasis is, however, on local fresh seafood and shellfish, particularly lobster, crab, scallops and langoustines fresh from the west coast of Ireland, especially Clew Bay.

Lovely restaurant with a nice menu selection. We had a lovely meal early in the evening. The menu choices we nice and my wife, who is coeliac, was able to find options to her liking. We had a nice bottle of wine with our dinner. The waitress was both knowledgeable and helpful. Would recommend it for a meal when visiting Westport.

This was my second visit to Kelly's Kitchen, a handy establishment to stop by while cycling the Greenway. It is a very cozy (i.e., small!) restaurant but service is speedy so it is not a long wait for a table and the food makes the wait worth it!
On my last visit, I managed to land a table outside and thoroughly enjoyed the most delicious vegetable soup and brown bread. This time I got a table inside and ordered the chicken Sandwich with bacon. Mindful of the time since I had a shuttle to catch, I was a little worried that it would take a while to receive my order but there was no need to worry. A delectable Sandwich with a tasty side salad was placed in front of me before I knew it from the lovely waitress. I only had time to eat half the Sandwich and took the rest to go, which I enjoyed later in Mulranny on a beautiful grassy hill overlooking the ocean.
I highly recommend Kelly's Kitchen for wonderful food, served quickly at reasonable prices.
