Description: 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.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We stumbled across this place and what a fantastic evening we had. The food was spectacular with precise combinations of flavour which produced smiles from each of our friends! we knew from the introductory bread and specialised dip presented before we ordered that we were in safe and experienced hands and the rest of the meal excelled from then onwards, making this one of the best meals i have ever eaten and one which i felt obliged to share and remember for if i ever return to Donegal again!

“A real treat!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Donegal is a beautiful place and Letterkenny a real gem! And to top it all off we spent a wonderful evening in Pat's on the Square. I resisted the famous pizzas and chose the pork dish - gorgeous. All the staff were friendly and helpful and there was an excellent selection of wines at very good prices. Highly recommended and well worth a visit.

“First and last time.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Genuinely confused as to how this restaurant is rated so highly in Letterkenny. Food is not good and looks like just fired into the microwave. There is no atmosphere in the place at all and it is very echoey. Staff were rude and we felt rushed to get the table cleared for someone else to be served.

“Good taste”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

I was in letterkenny recently and i enquired about someplace to eat...pats on the square was suggested. I didn't know what to make of it at first as it didn't seem over plush... I have to say the food was beautiful and tasty the service was top class and the value was very noticeable... A starter for two, two main courses one desert and a bottle of wine 65 euro.... Good atmosphere, good food, good value.. Well done you have it right.. If i am back in letterkenny i will eat there again.
