Super authentic & atmospheric dining experience, with the best fish I've ever eaten! Couldn't be faulted. Great value; exceptional staff; really amazingly fresh and wholesome food; wonderful atmosphere. Very much the superior local dining option. Make sure to book! You won't regret it.

Fantastic service! Had an evening meal here along with 2 other families. 6 adults and 5 children in total. We were looked after brilliantly. Reserved area was a good size. Service was excellent, children got their food very quickly which always helps as a parent. Menu was a little limited but everything was tasty . Our waitress was absolutely amazing. Totally on top of all the orders and fantastic dealing with children. Will be back again .
Spot on Made famous by the groups that played there ,sadly due to covid that's not happening right now but the food is still spot on . Recommend the fish n chips but sadly no steak . 4.5 out of 5 and would go again .
Recommend booking Had dinner here just once while on family holiday in the area but wish we had gone there more often. One of the best places we visited for Covid measures - very good distancing of tables for indoor dining, covid certs checked and staff very professional and organised. Had a very nice meal - Mussels, prawn cocktail, chicken curry, chicken ciabatta sandwich - all very nice. Comfortable relaxing place with nice outdoor dining area too. Would recommend booking a day or two in advance at busy times as we were disappointed couldn’t get booking the first night we tried.

Gorgeous food and lovely atmosphere! Gorgeous food and lovely atmosphere! The service was superb and this was a great stop at the start of the wild Atlantic Way! Food was great and cosy fire on a cold evening Also great vegetarian options!
Good food friendly staff My wife and I and 3 friends had dinner and a few drinks here twice on trip to Donegal. Obviously due to Covid restrictions and guidelines there was no music and atmosphere that Leo’s is known for. We still enjoyed our 2 nights here though. The food was good and very reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
