During our stay in Letterkenny we called in ad hoc for some food. We were very surprised at the delicious dishes presented to us by warm and welcoming staff. We’d highly recommend the Seafood Tagliatelle and the Salmon tagliatelle. 5x Nom Nom

We dine here once a month. It's excellent for casual food with great atmosphere. The specials are often unusual dishes and normally really good.

We are in the Market square, right in the centre of town, half way down the main street. We are a 50 seater restaurant, recently renovated. The kitchen and foyer are downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. We are a bistro style establishment, we serve pizza, pasta, steak, fish, chicken and salads. Our emphasis is on fresh, local and organic where possible. We have been in the same building for 30 years and are family run.
