Took some visiting work colleagues here for dinner. Overall we all had a very average experience, service was good but the food was underwhelming and quite pricey.

We picked this restaurant at random whilst staying in Derry overnight, and we were lucky to get their last available table. We were stunned at the quality of the food. We were given a selection of delicious canapés before our meal, including carrot soup, home-made Guinness bread, Parmesan crisps and beetroot meringues. They were all delicious and beautifully presented. The... More

It was our final day in Derry/londonderry and we decided to treat ourselves to a really nice lunch and we were not disappointed. Great menu and the wine wasn't bad either. Would be very happy To go back.

This was my first visit to Browns and I was suitably impressed. 5 of us were there for the Father's Day set lunch and it did not disappoint. I had a starter of confit of duck terrine with black pudding and charcoal, which was reasonably tasty, but not truly exciting. For the main course, I had the pork fillet with... More

Probably the best sit-down meal you'll find in Derry. Excellent service, intimate setting and fantastic food.

Perfect birthday lunch. The set menu is amazing value. Turf smoked beef (carpaccio-style), and moist, perfectly cooked hake. Every dish comes out perfect, elegant, delicious. Impeccable service. Fine dining without the faff.

We went mid week for the set summer menu which is a fantastic price at £21.95 for three courses. You just can't get food of this standard at this price in N. Ireland. We had canapés consisting of pork scratchings with Colrabi and Gin &Tonic mallows. Then an Amuse Bouch of roasted tomato soup with basil pesto and hit breads.... More
