We also received complimentary mushroom soup with gorgeous Guinness... More

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

Dined here last night with friends. So glad I was recommended it. The atmosphere was brilliant in the really quaint craft village. Music was brilliant! Waitress was so welcoming and accommodating. They had a full vegetarian menu and were happy to make vegan options for me too. We all had the nicest meal. I am a total food snob and... More

Excellent buzz around this wee bar / cafe, it is quite trendy with good food and craft beers, we were lucky enough to be there on a bright sunny day and there were lots of tourists sifting through the craft village where it is located

Delicious food, helpful staff but tiny portions & average 40 minute waiting time between meals. The food was very tasty but when it came out on the plate after waiting more than 40 minutes after I had my starter (I was very hungry) I was wondering where the rest of it was. Others at the table also made the same... More

As usual, I asked someone working nearby for a recommendation. The title of my review says it all! Relaxed, very good food, espresso, wine, ambience, service, on and on. I was there twice in three days.
