This is a great choice for lunch. The food is really appetising and well presented. The price is very reasonable and the staff friendly and helpful. The seating is comfortable also. This is another place I will definitely revisit - for the delicious Thai fishcakes! My friends had the pork belly and were pleased with it also. The garlic fries... More

I've visited custom house many times and every meal is always superb. The restaurant itself is a lovely setting. Food is gorgeous and the cocktails are tasty too! The salt and chilli squid is once of the best meals I've had and is a must try! Staff were very tentative and polite as always- will continue to visit!

Arrived very early for lunch, but staff were not put out. Had a lovely lunch- one pork belly, one Thai fish cakes-both delicious. Wine was good too. Staff vey friendly also. Don't understand the bad reviews- though it was quiet when we were there. Definitely going back.

My husband booked a table for 6 for my 50 th birthday treat as I had been here before with friends and enjoyed the food and service. We were shown to our table and the server left with an apology as a sixth setting was required. The server did not return and we were left waiting for some time. We... More

Noticed this restaurant as I was passing by as it looks so inviting. Was delighted to discover on entry that the décor and ambience inside equal the beautiful exterior. We enjoyed a really nice cocktail while we waited for a table to become available upstairs. The food was delicious in particular the goats cheese foam salad. The staff very very... More

Hello, my better half and I decided as it was our wedding anniversary to head to the custom house in Derry, as it had been some time since we were there, and felt we didn't give it a fair chance. I had read the recent reviews and thought why not. We went in on Saturday and waited a while to... More

I'm not one to write a bad review but this place is terrible. Starter: breads and pesto and oils. Bread tasted blander than white bread. Main: we ordered two pork bellies, £16 each. Presentation was nice but the food was extremely bland, boring and over priced. House wine was disgusting. The meal came to £57 for what I don't know.... More

As we had friends up visitng us we decided to book what was, at one time, one of the nicest restaurants in Derry. The fact that a table was much easier got than last time should have been a sure sign... things have changed and not for the better. Some of he staff are bordering on arrogant.. and really couldn't... More
