Fantastic night on our first time here. My wife is celiac and had plenty options available to her that are gluten free or could be made gluten free. All the staff very friendly and helpful.

We ate in restaurant darcy twelve last night. Immediately we all felt welcomed. The staff were so, so helpful and so friendly. Great front of house .
The place was busy and had a really lovely atmosphere.
The food was just amazing. We had Fish and Chips and Thai Chicken curry . You can choose either chunky or skinny fries . We had chunky chips- amazing . We both had sticky toffee pudding for desert. So tasty.
I would definitely recommend a visit here and we will definitely be back.

What a fabulous meal! The mussels were the tastiest thing I had eaten in so long, I also had the fish pie special which was divine. My husband had chicken wings and the fish and chips and we both agreed it was easy to see why this was a busy place- excellent food, brilliant unobtrusive service and a warm atmosphere. Definitely worth a trip

Given the recent Covid pandemic my wife and I thought that it would be a good idea to book a table instead of relying on just turning up (incase of reduced capacity). As it was Darcy12 was operating at full capacity (restrictions having been lifted), but it was busy. The staff were fantastic and my wife and I enjoyed our food immensely.

This restaurant is located in the middle of Clifden town.
Staff were very friendly.
Food was of a high quality with the lamb burger and fish pie a highlight of all our courses.
Would recommend this restaurant.

Small restaurant with a nice ambience.
Waitress was very friendly and the food was delicious, though not particularly large portions.
I was a little disappointed with the toilets that seemed poor compared with everything else.

Darcey Twelve has amazing food, whether your eat in or take out. Due to restrictions in Ireland at the moment we had to eat outside. Even though it was cold, the service was great and food was delicious. Couldn’t fault anything except the weather which had nothing to do with Darcey twelve :)
