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.

Arriving unannounced with a family of five can send some restaurants spinning. Not so for pats on the square. Lasagne and pizza was good and fairly priced. ..... If you liked that. ... you might like this.... #ramblingstampcollectors

Lovely Italian restaurant in Letterkenny town centre. I would definitely return. Not many tables, so prebook, or arrive early.

We have been going here for years, maybe even decades! Lunch time specials, a quick take away pizza or a gathering of friends. Good childrens menu. The food is always good and definitely the best pizza in town. Service is fast and efficient. Great ambiance at night. Well situated in the heart of the town. Nice wine and good prices.... More

Visited this restaurant recently while out shopping In Letterkenny. Opted for the lunch special of pasta which was very tasty. Upstairs dining which would not suit everyone. Good range of food on offer. Very busy venue with only one person, who was very pleasant, taking the orders. Definitely a place to visit again and maybe try their pizza

My colleagues and I had lunch recently in Pats, we rang ahead and ordered our lunch(from menu on line). When we arrived we were shown to our table, greeted by Mary, then our lunch was brought to us. It was so fresh and full of flavour. We all found it wonderful and we will be going back again. It was... More

This is a busy little place to eat and drink, menu is plentyfull and well presented worth the visit. Might be better off to book if it is a weekend night.
