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.

Went for dinner on a Thursday evening on a recommendation from a local resident. Enjoyed a very good meal inn pleasant surroundings. I had the Duo of I Beef and Lamb loin; my wife had the Duck breast. Both meals were accompanied by a side dish of vegetables. Meals were well prepared, well presented and tasty.
Good wine list with plenty of choice and reasonable prices. The service was very efficient and friendly and the prices we're good value for money. We didn't have room for dessert but had coffee which was fine.
Overall, a good experience. Would go back again.

Excellent meal with first class service. Good menu with plenty of choice for all - excellent value. Only concern was heat in the back of restaurant - we had seat at front which was cooler and had outlook over Main Street. Overall very enjoyable experience.

Went to the Lemon Tree this evening for dinner, it was absolutely gorgeous, the food, presentation and friendly staff. The unique thing about this restaurant is the three chefs are all brothers, Christopher, Thomas and Gary Molloy.
