This is a real gem. Located in Derry's Craft Village (inside the walled city area), it attracts people of all ages and tastes. The owner uses local ingredients and makes absolutely great soups, quiches, desserts, pizza and other entrees. Servers are typically young people with nice energy. The prices are great, and the comfy, semi-funky atmosphere makes this a treat... More

My family visited this restaurant on the back of reviews on here. It was worth searching for. the lunch was delicious and the service was friendly. The chicken caesar salad was very tasty. P.s. keep some room for there homemade deserts. Yum!!

The staff are quirky, tattooed and interesting. The background music is as diverse as a Quentin Tarantino film soundtrack. The food is clever, international and damn tasty. The clue is in the name - this café/restaurant takes its inspiration from all over the world. Fittingly, Café del Mondo's clientele includes travellers, backpackers and international language students. I often visit Café... More

Fabulous staff, atmosphere, service and food. Home-made bread and spectacular soups. Selection of 3-4 fresh and tasty salads. No soy milk but the coffee's goo without. Great place to meet friends and get out of the wind while you get your caffeine fix.

Had lunch today in Café del Mondo. We got no greeting and had to find a table for ourselves. We waited for a while for service and ended up having to go and get a menu. After our order was taken, we waited and waited and while we waited I counted six staff to the twelve customers present. There was... More

Staff were fabulous and the food was amazing. We were served by Sharon who made us feel very welcome and attended to our every need. We were the last to leave but didn't feel rushed and were offered desserts and/or coffees. We were too full to order anything else but were given plenty of time to finish our drinks and... More

I have eaten here several times in the past for lunch and occasionally dinner. I found it a little hit and miss at times. Usually good but not great. So when I met a bunch of friends over Christmas for a last minute dinner in Cafe del Mondo I wasn't expecting much. I have to say that on my most... More

Our Inner Wheel Club held our Christmas dinner in the restaurant last night. The food was wonderful and the restaurant was charming. Last but not least the staff were great. At the end of the evening we had a little drama and the staff reacted in such a caring and sensitive way.Thank you.

It's one thing to be told you can only have the table for an hour (at 6 10 pm on a busy Saturday although many tables were empty- but fair enough,' we'll just have a main course', we thought..)..it's quite another to then wait 45 mins to be brought any food (nearby tables had been waiting for even longer than...
