Couldn't be faulted. Great value; exceptional staff; really amazingly fresh and wholesome food; wonderful atmosphere. Very much the superior local dining option. Make sure to book! You won't regret it.

Had an evening meal here along with 2 other families. 6 adults and 5 children in total. We were looked after brilliantly. Reserved area was a good size. Service was excellent, children got their food very quickly which always helps as a parent. Menu was...a little limited but everything was tasty . Our waitress was absolutely amazing. Totally on top of all the orders and fantastic dealing with children. Will be back again .More

Made famous by the groups that played there ,sadly due to covid that's not happening right now but the food is still spot on . Recommend the fish n chips but sadly no steak . 4.5 out of 5 and would go again .

Ate here on a recommendation and we were very disappointed with the quality of the food. Curry sauce on the chicken curry was most definitely not home made and tasted very similar to the powdered sort sold in tubs in supermarkets. My husband has seafood...chowder whenever it is on the menu in a restaurant and he was also very disappointed with the quality. Other small things let this place down, for instance, when we asked specifically for bottles of Coca Cola we were brought splash coke which came from a bar tap. It is very easy to taste the difference. Other dishes we ordered from the snack menu and kids menu were also weak. Overall, we wouldn’t eat here again but luckily this was the only bad meal we had on our Donegal trip.More

Had dinner here just once while on family holiday in the area but wish we had gone there more often. One of the best places we visited for Covid measures - very good distancing of tables for indoor dining, covid certs checked and staff very...professional and organised. Had a very nice meal - Mussels, prawn cocktail, chicken curry, chicken ciabatta sandwich - all very nice. Comfortable relaxing place with nice outdoor dining area too. Would recommend booking a day or two in advance at busy times as we were disappointed couldn’t get booking the first night we tried.More

My wife and I and 3 friends had dinner and a few drinks here twice on trip to Donegal. Obviously due to Covid restrictions and guidelines there was no music and atmosphere that Leo’s is known for. We still enjoyed our 2 nights here though....The food was good and very reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful and friendly.More

menu clearly displays allergies, wide variety on the kids menu. Prompt on serving food, I ordered soup, It was delicious, pan fried beaded haddock, chips and tartare sauce, the haddock was light and crispy, with no grease present, that you can find in other restaurants....Tartare sauce was amazing! I thought kids were catered to very well.More
