The best little cafe in Dunmore, the fish is always fresh and the homemade cakes are to die for. Prices are very reasonable compared to some other options in the village.

For mains I had the club sandwich which was good my wife the prawn and chorizo bake which was superb with a strong flavour of garlic which was not overpowering. The desserts looked... More

Last time we visited we only had desserts so returned to try something more substantial this time . Love the varied menu but it makes it difficult to choose with all the interesting options . On this occasion we had a squid dish while my wife had a quesadilla special . No room for dessert this time unfortunately . Great... More

Chips, cod goujons, fresh salad all lovely and tiramisu for dessert. First class lunch for 8 Euro. You won't get better value anywhere else in Ireland. Have eaten at the Lemon Tree Cafe five or six times and would highly recommend .

Lemon Tree has to compete with with so many eateries in Dunmore which have fabulous sea views so how does it do it? By providing great fresh food, locally sourced, beautifully cooked and served by smiling, friendly staff. This was my first breakfast visit and it certainly didn't disappoint. I enjoyed delicious baked ham topped with potato and black pudding... More

The breakfasts here are superb and set you up for the day. The lunch is great too, not a fan of the Seafood Pie. The evening meals are top notch, the Pigeon, the lemon sole, the Pork belly, and as for the desserts, too many on offer to pick one so make sure you go halves and get to experience... More

We spent the day in Dunmore East, a beautiful part of Ireland. Although the restaurant was about to close, Louise our host welcomed us in. Amazing food n fine selection of wines. As I said... Wish we could have stayed longer! Lovely

The Lemon Tree Restaurant is located on the outskirts of the village, 400 meters from the harbour. We have four menus, a breakfast menu, a lunch menu and on Friday and Saturday nights we have a dinner menu available from 5pm to 9pm and a menu for children. Seafood is highly recommended but our menus cater for all.
