An Absolute gem. We stayed at a nearby hotel and were delighted to discover this beautiful restaurant around the corner. The staff are lovely and the food is delicious. All the little bites in between are so tasty as were any of the dishes on the menu we tried. If you're ever in Letterkenny definitely give this restaurant a try.

One of the nicest meals I ever had. I'm struggling to think of one better. Couldn't get over cheap it was too for the quality of food we received.

The food and service at The Lemon Tree, Letterkenny are top drawer. The dishes complement one another with great wine and beer pairings. Five stars

Both the food and service were spectacular. Three of our guests had gluten intolerances and were provided with the most beautiful gluten free bread along with their starters. Easily one of the best dining experiences we have had, cannot recommend enough!

We booked lemon tree after a covid cancellation in the cove in portnablagh. We are vegetarian and advised this when booking. Before coming we saw there was only a couple of options but booked anyway. The waitress was aware of our dietary preferences and presented a menu with 3 veggie starters and mains. Very impressed.the food was excellent including the amuse bouche and bread. Beetroot salad excellent as was fennel salad. My arancini was also very good and the cauliflower salad also. Desserts also v good. The presentation was flawless. Chefs obviously well trained. We thought price point for this quality food very reasonable. Would gladly have paid more. We will return. Thank you for a great experience George and Deirdre

Have visited the Lemon Tree several times in the past few years. It is by a wide margin the best dining experience in Letterkenny with an absolutely delicious (and coeliac-friendly) menu and excellent attentive service. We leave always looking forward to the next visit!

Had such a lovely dinner here with husband and 2.5 year old while on holiday. Very friendly and accommodating staff and food is so good. Would make the trip again for the chocolate pave alone!

Outstanding meal! Service was fab. The lemon tart was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. The whole experience knocked my socks off. Kudos to the chef.
