I've only eaten here once but really enjoyed my visit. The lady was friendly and very helpful and the service was quick. I had a steak sandwich which was very very tasty and reasonably priced. Lovely lunch and I'd definitely go back again! Lovely choice of food on the menu.

Dear Ursula, Thank you very much for your very kind review, I remember yourself and your friend, you were a pleasure to serve. I am glad Alfie pointed you in the right direction. We are closing for a week in November to renovate downstairs, so hopefully it will reflect how nice upstairs is! Thanks again and hope to see you... More

I visited Pats in the square with my family after reading great reviews on this website. I wasn't impressed. The pizza was thick and soggy and the kids pasta portion wasn't nearly enough for my 5 and 6 year olds. However, on a plus note the staff who waited on us were very friendly.

This is a great place to eat in Letterkenny. The food is great and the wait is short. The prices are great and the owner/staff is very friendly. My advice when ordering is to get a half main course along with the best pizza in Letterkenny to share with your dining partner. This way you'll get to sample much more.... More

Thanks a million Ben, you're a dote! Good idea about sharing, my husband, Pat, and I always do that. When we're training we always say we want to make the best pizza in the world, Letterkenny is a very good start. We were in The Irish Times weekend supplement over the Summer for one of the best pizzas in Ireland,... More

This was a very pleasant environment in which to relax and spend an evening! The warm welcome we received the moment we arrived up the stairs was genuine, a friendly smiling staff, lovely food and nice wine selection starting at €19. Will definitely revisit on next visit to Letterkenny!

Donegal is a beautiful place and Letterkenny a real gem! And to top it all off we spent a wonderful evening in Pat's on the Square. I resisted the famous pizzas and chose the pork dish - gorgeous. All the staff were friendly and helpful and there was an excellent selection of wines at very good prices. Highly recommended and... More

Genuinely confused as to how this restaurant is rated so highly in Letterkenny. Food is not good and looks like just fired into the microwave. There is no atmosphere in the place at all and it is very echoey. Staff were rude and we felt rushed to get the table cleared for someone else to be served.
