4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

On a slow Tuesday evening we were looking to find non-pub/hotel grub in the centre of Letterkenny. We stumbled (literally) on this gem of a restaurant. Hidden away upstairs on one side of market square it clearly wasn't a secret as the place was packed at 8.20pm. We were quickly accommodated and as the night passed the story of Pats... More

Visited at the beginning of the week and would have to say I was disappointed having recommended it to my friends. A table of eight came in at €247 with two bottles of wine. No heinous culinary crimes but the mussels starter was not good. Given that it was on the specials board it should have been. The mussels were... More

(early bird ends at 7 ) However we booked for an hour later having voiced our disappointment... More

Went to Pats for an informal supper for family and guests before our son's wedding. We were quite a large party, and numbers changed (as they do), but Pats took it all in their stride. Service was good. Food was enjoyable and good variety: something for everyone. We had a great time!

We were in two nights in a row! First night we had mussels and goats cheese tart to start, then really delicious pasta. Second night we had soup and cauliflower fritters, and pizza. It's a very good Italian restaurant, and the early bird menu is great value! Very attentive service, staff are knowledgable about coeliac requirements. Gets busy even on... More

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.
