Excellent atmosphere

Cocktails are delicious and varied! No complaints about the menu although I do prefer the Northern Whig as a bar, rather than a restaurant. It has a great vibe throughout the venue and very friendly barstaff.

Me and a group of friends visiting a couple of weeks ago at lunch time! We went for the two course. The cheesy garlic break was horrible the garlic was dripping of it there was that much on it. Then I decided to go for lasagne, which was horrendous! It was dry, and tasteless and was not cooked properly! We... More

The food we had was superb. I had the Sea bass, it was the best I have ever had. The prices for the food were very reasonable, and was one of the cheaper places, but not fast food. The place was buzzing although it was a Saturday.

Just called in for a quick bite to eat, thought I'd try out the FaceBook Chicken Salad. Glad I did, stuffed and another happy customer :-)

This restaurant is across the road from the Premier Inn. It has a special of two courses + drinks. We opted just for mains which were well cooked and had different presentation of vegetables we had had in other Irish restaurants. It also has three large statues from the Czech communist era with an interesting history.

Had a meal before a show in mac theatre. Had two courses and glass of wine for 14.99 which is very reasonable. The food was first class and the lovely waitress was very attentive and friendly. The place was packed which shows how popular it is. Will be back

I've given up on this place! We travel from Derry several times a year to spend a weekend in Belfast and on at least 3 occasions we tried to get into the Whig.
