    I have been visiting Ballina with a friend, for a week salmon fishing, knowing the area well I made sure to book Dillons via OpenTable prior to arriving in town. We ate there every night of our stay and were never disappointed. Paul and his team are wonderful and really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dillons to anyone visiting Co. Mayo, you will not be disappointed. We have already booked our accommodation for May next year and will certainly be making sure to book our table well in advance.

    We all really enjoyed the meal. Two of us had the fillet steak and it was cooked exactly to their taste. We all cleared our plates. It was one of the nicest meals I have had in a long time and especially the price and portion sizes. Compliments to the chef and we would all definitely recommend it.

    Thank you for yet another wonderful dining experience. We dined with family visitors from England recently. As always, Paul, the manager, is courteous, polite, professional and extremely generous with his time. Staff are the same, with an eye to customer satisfaction at all times. Compliments to the chef who always serves generous tasty portions with attention to detail with his food presentation. Thank you all so much. Of course, we will return.

    I have been visiting Ballina for the best part of 25 years…over that time I have eaten in most of the restaurants and pubs in the area, Dillons is by far the best there is, last year I was fishing the Moy for a week with two friends and made sure before we left home that I had booked a table for all week, it’s a good job I did, it’s so popular we ran the risk of not getting in. You are always assured of a warm welcome, the Manager and staff are all helpful, friendly and find the time to talk. The food is excellent and they serve a great pint of Guinness 👍😃

    We dined on Easter Sunday and although very very busy we were looked after so well. I have nothing but praise for dillons. They train their staff as priority and this in my opinion makes it a pleasure to eat in. Eat here every time I'm in ballina and you are always looked after.

    The best thing about this restaurant is the fantastic friendly and efficient service...it doesn't have the most imaginative food but everything is tasty and well presented with good value for money. But it is the staff that makes me keep coming back when I am in town.
