We had a fabulous dining experience at this restaurant. The quality of the food was superb, wonderfully presented and with beautiful flavours. Loved the scallops,monkfish and creme brulee. The service from all the staff was exceptional and there was a lovely ambiance there throughout the...night.
We absolutely loved everything about our night and look forward to returning again to experience some of the other mouth watering dishes on the menu.More
This restaurant really does serve exceptionally good food. I had the monkfish. It was so tender and a brilliant combination with pork belly. My husband had a boeuf bourguignon, similarly excellent. There were several little amuse bouches to whet the appetite and they certainly did!...Service was first class too. Our bill came to well under 100 euros for 2 courses so great value too.More

We had a fabulous meal here. Every single course was excellent. This is really nudging Michelin star calibre but with much more accessible pricing. I had the pan seared scallops with glaze bacon and chard cauliflower and my wife had a beetroot salad, both of...the stations were superb. I then had the monkfish with pork belly , Sweetcorn and scallions. and the combination of flavours were superb. The desserts were excellent in particular the cheesecake. My only quibble was limited wine list - a few quality bottles at the top end in the €50 To €100 range would enable the inclusion of some top quality wines to accompany it .More
My husband and I visited Letterkenny over the weekend and we made a reservation in the Lemon Tree for Saturday night.
Everything about our booking was excellent, from arrival to departure, The waitresses were all so nice and couldn't have been more helpful.
Our food...was excellent and we really enjoyed it.
Next time we are in Letterkenny we will pay another visit.
Best Wishes Anne & PaddyMore
Absolutely exquisite meal!! I visited The Lemon Tree on Friday, 11th March with my Mum. It was our 1st time there & from the moment we entered the restaurant we just knew we were going to have a special dining experience. The restaurant has a...lovely fire which you can see as soon as you step inside and there is a lovely warmth and ambiance. We were seated very quickly, drinks order taken promptly and a complimentary appetizer of beautiful warm breads with smoked garlic butter and chicken liver pate arrived shortly after - without being hurried, the timing of all courses was perfect for me. Following on from that we had 2 further complimentary snacks each before our main Starters arrived. My Mum had the beetroot salad & I had the lobster ravioli. For the Main courses I had the duck whilst my Mum had monkfish. We finished off with chocolate cremeaux and panna cote. Every dish was beautifully presented and every single element of each dish was perfectly cooked and so flavoursome - full marks to the Chef and the kitchen team, totally faultless!! And if course I would have to complement the restaurant staff also who were very attentive, friendly and professional, 1 saw me taking a photo and offered to take 1 of us also. A wonderful dining experience that I couldn't speak highly enough of, I will most definitely be back. Well done to the Lemon Tree team! 👏More
Visited last night and from the moment we stepped inside we felt valued. The staff are lovely and friendly and oh my lord the food and attention to detail. The flavours and to add I’m ceoliac and 95% of the menu was suitable so I...didn’t feel I missed out. Highly recommend and will definitely be back.More
Enjoyed another wonderful meal in the Lemon Tree last night. It is a real treat. This is no ordinary restaurant. What is delaying its Michelin Star? The food is superb from the delicious little "amuse bouches" right thro to mouth-watering desserts. Attention to detail is...everywhere. Well done to all!More
