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.

Generally had a great meal. Also the fact that for 21-24 quid for a set menu that includes appetiser s, amuse bouche and decent service is amazing. Unfortunately a few quality issues make me lean towards 4 stars. I am conflicted about this because I think it was reasonably balanced money vs quality (surprised to see the coley on the... More

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.

3 of us booked in last Saturday. When we arrived we were told our table was not ready. We were shown to a seating area where there were 2 chairs left and we were asked to wait there. No-one offered another chair for the 3rd person in our party. We were not offered the menu or drinks until about 15minutes... More

I enjoyed a meal at this restaurant last Thursday evening. Everything about this meal was perfect, from the wine, the presentation of the meal, and most importantly the attention that was given to us by the staff, Ian and Kevin. I will certainly be back soon and will recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

Myself and my girlfriend decided last minute to travel up to Derry last weekend (to see Mayo play derry in the football league) - we went up on Saturday and on the basis of online reviews opted to check out Browns on Bond Hill. So we ventured across to the waterside and were warmly welcomed by staff. The initial vibe... More
