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.

Ordered the vension vol au vent and may have been a bad decision as was essentially a beef stew. Boyfriend ordered potato wedges to start and was much tastier. I ordered the chorizo pasta while my boyfriend ordered the chicken and garlic potatoes. Both were ok but nothing to rave about. Desert was amazing apple crumble and chocolate pudding easily... More

I have eaten here on numerous occasions and the food is always top quality. I was here last on New Years Eve, and although the venue was packed, the food was perfect and the service was excellent. We shared the Antipasti for our starter and I ordered venison as my main and it was cooked to perfection. The prices are... More

Me and my partner visited Pats many times, the place and the staff is brilliant, the atmosphere is very nice as well. Unfortunately food- perhaps some dishes only- became disappointing. It is no more the same quality as it used to be. The amount of fat put into some dishes really puts us off: lately in my starter there were... More

We were looking for somewhere to go to eat in Letterkenny last week and loved this cosy little family run Italian restaurant, tucked away in the Market Square in the centre of town. Fabulous food followed by the most delicious desert. My friends and I loved the experience and will definitely be back. Only complaint was the 'elevator' music in... More

All you'd want from an Italian restaurant , friendly attentive staff, great food and lovely touches like a jug of ice water to meet you followed by focaccia and an olive tapenade all on the house, first class

I've had lunch at Pats on the square several times. The quality of the food is consistently great, there are varied daily specials. The service is fabulous and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. Well recommended. Fantastic restaurant.
