Lemon Tree Restaurant
‘Lively and lovely’ is how the reviewer in The Irish News described the Molloy family’s restaurant, The Lemon Tree. The Irish Times, meanwhile, praised the ‘sophisticated suppers’ which the siblings – brothers Christopher, Gary and Thomas in the kitchen; sisters Linda and Trudy out front – produce for their customers. A smart makeover a few years ago really put a pep in the step of The Lemon Tree, and there is evident ambition here in the smartly executed cooking – turf smoked salmon with smoked salmon mousse; ham hock hash with soft hen’s egg; Noone’s Donegal chicken with wilted kale; hake with stewed onion and carrot purée – all of which is based on carefully sourced ingredients. Value for money is only excellent.
