I've eaten in Pat's a few times for dinner and the standard of food is consistently excellent. Great value and always imaginative specials as well as great pasta and pizzas. Great service and always with a smile. My fave in Letterkenny.

Visited this restaurant recently and what a great surprise. Great food, great atmosphere and great service. Can't wait until I'm back in Donegal to visit Pats on the Square again. A rare find. Thank you Pat and Mary and your fantastic team.

Good food, good value, a bit noisy, probably ideal for kids or young families. The Pasta dishes were good and the portions were more than decent. Not sure if any of the owners are Italian, but this place has been there for years. Children are welcomed and they really enjoy their food. Facilities were good.

Have eaten here a couple of times, for both lunch and dinner, and it's always been delicious! The staff are lovely, the food is fantastic and I love the decor. They also have a great selection of wines and craft beers. Would definitely recommend it!

Excellent food made to order from great ingredients. Little extras like the garlic pizza slices and the mint crisp with the Illy coffee really make even a casual lunch special. Have eaten here regularly for more than 20 years and love it. Really good value and lunch time specials change daily Highly recommend

Pats on the square is by far the best restaurant in Letterkenny. Having lived in Letterkenny for many years I have tried every eatery but always come back to pats. The food here is excellent, reasonably priced and the staff are second to none. The owner-Mary is a wonderful, friendly and warm lady who always takes the time to make... More
