Description: The Lemon tree is a Letterkenny owned family run restaurant opened in 1999. The three brothers in the kitchen have a unique style with a mixture of traditional Irish and French classic, influenced by country house cooking which was collected by their many years experience all over Irleand. All meats are Irish sourced and fresh fish is a special feature. Everthing is made freshly on site including all breads, pastries, pastas and desserts. The Wine list is ever growing and includes something for all tastes. The restaurant offers a Early bird menu 7 days available from 5 - 7 pm and a full A la carte menu from 5 - 10 PM. Lunch is available from 1 - 2:30 PM on Sunday

Excellent food in simple surroundings, served by friendly and enthusiastic staff. I would go again. Letterkenny doesn't have many restuarants, so this one is well worth a visit.

“A Lovely Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

I visited on a Monday night, and enjoyed the Goat's cheese tartlet with spinich & red peppers, as well as the Fish Pie - like a shepard's pie with mashed potatoes on top, but with fish instead of meat. A tasty combination! The two young servers did a fine job, and were friendly and prompt!

“A Meal To Remember..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

After reading reviews on tripadvisor I booked this on the Friday for the next night Saturday. The waitress was great and local! The menu was just great so many wonderful dishes, we had starter, main and desert but didn't sample the wine menu as we were going to the threatre and I wanted to stay awake! The food arrived promptly and looked out of this world. We were delighted with it all and can't wait to go back. There were couples and families in as we were there for the early bird but chose from the La Carte menu.

Food was really tasty, Staff friendly and price very reasonable. You can have a glass of wine as one of your courses if you pick the 2 or 3 course menu.
