We phoned on the off chance there would be a table on a Friday night and there was. Not knowing what to expect we were greeted warmly and seated by a charming young man. The boss then arrived with the menus and the night just...got better & better. The butters with the breads - delicious. The Seafood Chowder - delicious. The Turbot - delicious. The Strawberry Meringue - delicious. In fact the whole evening was just wonderful. Thank youMore

Lunch for a party of 5.one mix up over an order which was rectified quickly by very pleasant staff. Deep battered prawn dish excellent however two dishes from the specials could only be described as execrable. The beautiful John dory fish arrived at the table...cold overcooked sitting on a bed of spinach floating in butter stained water .As two of us had ordered the same dish that left two very dissatisfied diners.It was a quiet Tuesday lunchtime so I can't understand the reason for sending out such unacceptable dishes. I did mention the inadequacy of the food to a very young and inexperienced waiter in a polite fasion as I dislike "shooting the messenger" He in turn politely apologised and that was the last we heard of it.Will I or any of our visitors return? I don't think so.More

Was there for breakfast with my partner - ordered eggs with sourdough and then added bacon. Coffee arrived with toast - then some time later eggs with the bacon and no sourdough - but odd but paid for sourdough and if I didn't add the...bacon the eggs (2) would have been very lonely on the plateMore

Had brunch there this morning, service and food were both excellent. General atmosphere in the restaurant was easy and relaxed and this is down to the very friendly and very efficient staff. Only suggestion I would make is to update their FB page to let...people know that they are open on BH Monday as we took a chance heading out there. Coffee is excellent and worth a mention! Looking forward to trying their evening menu over the next few weeks.More

So the food was out of this world, the fish so fresh & the flavours awesome. The customer service was exceptional & friendly. Ones glass was always topped up. My only problem was I wanted to eat everything on the menu. So went back the...next day to buy food for my freezer. Talk about a little gem. Looking forward to my return visit. I’d advise you to book as it’s a very busy spot.More

Went here for breakfast with old friends. Coffee to start was strong and just what we needed after a dip in the Dunmore November sea. The fry came along after some time. But the wait was worth it. Served one of the finest fry ups...of all time. It was a delight of locally produced delicacies sausage, pudding, egg. My friend home from Canada 3 weeks later is still raving about the Sausages. Top quality.!More

Last Saturday I visited the Lemon Tree Restaurant with a friend. For me it was the first time. It is obviously a very popular place as every table was continuously taken by diners. We opted for the calamari starter which was very tasty. Then we...each had the slow-cooked beef with mashed potato, red cabbage and roasted squash. I can quite honestly say that it was the best beef I've eaten in many years. Together with a glass of excellent Cabernet Sauginon made for a meal par excellence. The portion was huge and very good value for money.More

Fantastic menu: delicious food and very friendly service as always. Best food in DE by a country mile. The sea food selection is superb. I had calamari a few days ago and prawn scampi today. Wonderful. Key lime pie was superb. Lovely Malbec to team...it with. Magnificent lobster also on menu which my partner had. Plenty of great specials.More
