Had a really delicious meal in here last night. I'm really impressed with this restaurant. The service is great, and there's a lovely relaxed ambience. And last night when it was a freezing cold night, the restaurant was warm and cosy. I loved the great selection on the menu, and the dessert special I had was delicious -pear and cranberry... More

Pats has been a long established restaurant that had stood the test of time through boom and downfall economies. Simply because of it's consistance of fresh local produce and exciting and delicious Italian food, always a winner.

My friend made a reservation here for my birthday for the two of us. We were running a bit late for the reservation but this was no problem for them, they were very helpful and accommodating and kept our table for us! We opted to just have mains with garlic bread and wine. The food was beautiful; im so glad... More

We went here while staying in Letterkenny, restaurant is very cute but small and narrow stairs are not ideal for everyone. Food was very tasty and reasonable priced.

Had a lovely meal with my family, the decor is really relaxing and the staff were very friendly and helpful, it was quite empty when we got there but it wasn't long in filling up. The service was quick and the food was excellent.

Good food and friendly staff. The service was good and the staff were very attentive. The food was lovely also. €90 for 2 people for three courses and 2 bottles of wine - not too bad!

Our first evening in Letterkenny before we had any chance to orient ourselves. So it was luck that we found Pat's on the Square. A modest entrance and a cosy upstairs restaurant. Complementary bread and tapenade - a good touch! One Smoked haddock & leek pie; and one Greek Salad. Followed by a fabulous rhubarb and strawberry crumble. All really... More

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.
