Description: The Lemon tree has recently moved MAY 2017 to a NEW location in Letterkenny at the Courtyard Shopping Centre to the rare of the building at the carpark. This 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 with over 90 different wines. 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.

We booked here for our first night stay in Letterkenny as we had researched what the no. 1 restaurant was in the town. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely meal.

The restaurant is bright and the staff are friendly.

I was surprised to hear that they had no steak as it was only 7:30pm in the evening but after making another choice form the menu I was told that they had actually one steak left. It was lovely!

I would recommend you try this restaurant when in Letterkenny. But if you are in town for just one evening then I would have to recommend the restaurant in the Radisson Blu hotel.

My advice to the owners is give the side of the restaurant a lick of paint. It looks shabby.

The food here is top class. Everything is rich in flavour and has a real home cooked meal feel about it. The restaurant is small and quiet which makes it quite a peaceful retreat. Service is also brilliant and the girls cannot do enough to assist you and always with a smile on their faces. For the relaxing atmosphere and delicious food this restaurant offers great value for money. Would 100% recommend anyone to eat here.
