My partner is from donegal and has raved about Pats on the Square for a number of years, I finally got to try it for myself on Thursday night. First impressions were good, quaint little place, an authentic Italian vibe about the restaurant. The starter was antipasti which was plentiful and DELICIOUS! Also perfect to share - Then had the...

Visited here on easter Saturday with my partner! It was super busy even when we arrived at 9.30pm!! The food, service and everything in between was faultless. We had chicken wings and a goats cheese tart to start, followed by a custom made pizza and the salmon pasta! We then had strawberry and rhubarb crumble with the nicest ice cream... More

Ate here a few nights ago with my wife and my parents and was happy with the restaurant as a whole. I got the garlic mushrooms as a starter and although lovely there wasn't much of it as it was served in a small pot. Had the blue cheese pasta as a main and I have to say it was... More

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
