Discovered this wee gem during the Derry Jazz Festival (brilliant vibrant weekend with great music). Best fish and chips I've had for a long time-returned the next day for more! And the next day for a bacon bap-Yum! The leek and potato soup was very good too! Staff very friendly and helpful-down to organising a taxi to the airport!!!!!!!!!!!!

The chefs special is always delicious for lunch, gourmet food at high street prices. I had pan fried hake with buttered kale, and it was beautiful, cooked perfectly. The restaurant was steady at lunchtime but service was prompt and courteous, as always. Can't wait until it's warm enough to sit outside!

Went here with three of my girlfriends after the owner went out of her way to get us a Valentine's reservation and it was one of the best meals we've had in Derry! It's hidden in the quaint craft village, beautifully decorated. The service was fantastic and the Chef's were kind enough to make us complimentary appetizers and dessert, all... More
