Restaurant of the Month

The Just Ask restaurant of the month for April goes to The Lemon Tree, Co. Donegal

Situated in the heart of Letterkenny along the Wild Atlantic Way since its establishment in 1999, this family run restaurant offers an intimate, relaxed ambience where customers can experience classically inspired dishes from the chef brother trio, Christopher, Gary and Thomas Molloy.

All meats, fish and poultry are Irish sourced and everything is made freshly on site, including all breads, pastries, pastas and desserts. Wonderful Donegal meats (home reared beef and lamb from Gildea Farm Butchers, Letterkenny; Angus beef from Lisnamulligan Farm, Castlefinn) and free range poultry (Noone Farm, Inishowen) rub shoulders in this creative kitchen with fresh fish, seafood (Starcrest Seafoods of Donegal, Albatross Seafood Killybegs, Mulroy Bay Mussels, Errigal Bay Scallops) and traditional turf smoked salmon from the picturesque Haven Smokehouse at Carrigart

Home grown potatoes are sourced from Derek McClure and vegetables come from the famed Ballyholey Farm Shop at Raphoe and Manus MacGonagle’s esteemed Quality Sea Veg at Burtonport. Gareth Austin supply micro herbs and wild foods to the restaurant and Donegal Rapeseed Oil, Jordans Donegal Sea Salt and St Johnston Honey are all proudly featured too..
