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 went to this restaurant after a long days Xmas shopping in Derry. The restaurant is fairly small, the seating is upstairs (not sure what arrangements there are for the disabled) and the kitchen downstairs. The food was very tasty and good value for money and the atmosphere was lively. The service was very good considering the 2 girls were... More

Myself and my husband enjoyed a tastie meal here. It was a decision between here and a few other of letterkenny favourites to choose from. However.. Pats was a good choice...scored well on atmosphere, service and the best garlic potatoes I have ever eaten.

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.
