Fantastic restaurant. Great food and great service. Loved the goats cheese starter and the steak main course. Used to go to the old lemon tree and loved it but really impressed with the new lemon tree. Can’t wait to go back

After two visits in the last month to The Lemon Tree, we could not give it high enough praise. The food, service, ambiance and prices and simply outstanding. It has to be one of the best restaurants in Ireland.
