On a trip to Derry last weekend, my husband and I dined at Browns. The food was amazing and the service was even better. We chose the tasting menu with wine accompaniments and each course was wonderful. Interesting takes on standard meals, but incredibly well done. Again, the service was impeccable - our waiter was attentive, but not pushy. He... More

We ordered from the Lunch Menu. The food was very good and reasonably priced. However, I was underwhelmed by the smoked salmon starter compared to the starters had by the other diners in my party. Staff were attentive and the atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxing and quiet.

I have eaten in this restaurant on numerous occassions and never have been dissappointed, if you want something a litte different this is the place to go, they do an excellent pre theatre menu at a very reasonable price, the a la carte menu can be pricy but worth it.
