We've just returned after a long yearned for second visit ( we were here two years ago). The first trip inspired us to come back again, we just had to return, not exactly on the doorstep for us, but well worth the trip. The service from the minute you walk into Pats on the square is exemplary. The only problem... More

We ate at Pats on the Square on a Saturday evening. The food was very good and nice and warm. The restaurant was very busy. The only downside that I found was that the chairs were uncomfortable on the back. The restaurant is upstairs. They also do very good pizzas for take-away / eat-in.

Pat's on the Square is on the Main Street in Letterkenny. As regular visitors, the food always pleases the whole family. Our children, ages 11& 8 chose this as their favorite dinner spot. The dining area is small and busy but the atmosphere remains pleasant and family friendly. It is upstairs and does not accommodate those with mobility issues. We... More

This place was the choice of another couple we were dining with as they fancied Italian. Whilst Pat's on the square has all the usual italian fare they also have a very good specials menu every night which we all ate off. All the food was very good and reasonibly priced and, looking round, the Italian staples also appeared very... More

We visited the restaurant for Valentine's Day and the food was gorgeous! Really enjoyed the experience! It's a pity the restaurant isn't bigger because the demand is there! Will definitely visit again!

Came here for dinner with family on a busy Saturday night in November. It was extremely noisy on the evening we visited, mainly on account of two groups. The menu offers a good selection of pizzas and pastas mainly at a reasonable price. The staff were quite busy and we felt rather rushed. We went for a couple of pizza... More

Stopped in at Pats on the Square for an early bird between Christmas and New years for a nice little recess from leftovers and tins of celebrations! We went with yummy starters of goats cheese duo and mozerella tart with delish pizza's that were just too big to finish. The staff boxed them for us and they made for seriously... More

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.
