Had a most enjoyable pizza in Pats and husband had the carbonara which he said was excellent. Portions very large but had no problem with doggy bag for pizza. Wine very good and reasonable.

Was recommended to visit so due to lack of options on a Sunday evening, as well as the door suggesting they didn't open on Mondays (we were only in town Sunday and Monday), ventured in even though we weren't very hungry. Would have loved to...More

We visited here on Saturday 27th January and had the most gorgeous taglitelli, it was to die for! There was also complementary bread and tapenade. It was so good we decided to visit again the following night. Unfortunately it was a let down. No bread...More

During our stay in Letterkenny we called in ad hoc for some food. We were very surprised at the delicious dishes presented to us by warm and welcoming staff. We’d highly recommend the Seafood Tagliatelle and the Salmon tagliatelle. 5x Nom Nom

We dine here once a month. It's excellent for casual food with great atmosphere. The specials are often unusual dishes and normally really good.

We are in the Market square, right in the centre of town, half way down the main street. We are a 50 seater restaurant, recently renovated. The kitchen and foyer are downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. We are a bistro style establishment, we serve pizza, pasta, steak, fish, chicken and salads. Our emphasis is on fresh, local and organic where possible. We have been in the same building for 30 years and are family run.
