Description: The Lemon tree has recently moved MAY 2017 to a NEW location in Letterkenny at the Courtyard Shopping Centre to the rare of the building at the carpark. This is a Letterkenny owned family run restaurant opened in 1999. The three brothers in the kitchen have a unique style with a mixture of traditional Irish and French classic, influenced by country house cooking which was collected by their many years experience all over Irleand. All meats are Irish sourced and fresh fish is a special feature. Everthing is made freshly on site including all breads, pastries, pastas and desserts. The Wine list is ever growing and includes something for all tastes with over 90 different wines. The restaurant offers a Early bird menu 7 days available from 5 - 7 pm and a full A la carte menu from 5 - 10 PM. Lunch is available from 1 - 2:30 PM on Sunday.

I visited this restaurant with a small group of 10. Small and unassuming. The service was very attentive with great menu choice. The muse bouche very tempting to the palate and a showcase of the excellent meal to come. if you are keen to enjoy great cuisine I would pre-book as this restaurant was very popular.

Visted this restaurant on Monday evening with my boyfriend. From start to finish the meal was superb. Not one fault from the complementary soup to the delicious desert. If only this restaurant was nearer my home in Dublin. Could not recommend high enough!

We arrived about 7pm after a hectic ride up from from Belfast. Tired and staved we checked in at the Gallagher's Hotel, 100 Main St. Letterkenny. We walked down Main St. to find a place to eat late on a Sunday night .What a surprise to find the Lemon Tree Restruant open and crowded with local dinners. This place is small but has a wonderful romantic and friendly atomsphere. I ordered the goat cheese biscuit for a starter and pan fried Monk fish. My wife had a great salad and baked salmon special.
The goat cheese was light and creamy and the Monk fish excellent. My wife commented the she had not had better salmon since arriving in the Hebrides.
Islands at beginning of the of our trip. We highly recommend this gem if you enjoy great local cooking. Great atomsosphere.
