Young staff, and I couldn't work out who was managing them, but everything worked like clockwork. Fast efficient service, lovely food, in a slightly odd location outside, but a beautiful interior.

Now in their new premises, the food, ambience and service were all perfectly aligned. The cost of dinner for two with a glass of wine was €84.00. Well worth the money though. We were impressed with this family run restaurant.

Had a lovely meal at the Lemon Tree in their new premises in Letterkenny. The surroundings were top class as was the food and the service. Hope everything goes well for the Lemon Tree in their new location, they deserve it!
