Food at the exchange was very tasty and service was surprisingly quick but this just made me feel a little bit rushed! However the staff were friendly and efficient and I didn't mind having to give my order at the bar. The surroundings were comfortable and atmosphere was that of a busy happy restaurant!

This is a very popular restaurant and you may want to make a reservation. The menu accommodated my gluten free (celiac) needs easily. The waitstaff was nice but very busy, meaning that I had to keep reminding different servers of my food allergy. There was also a mistake with my dessert order where a different server brought out something that... More

We enjoyed our dinner at The Exchange very much. The food is good - we had the haddock and the lamb shank. Both were good and presented beautifully. The staff and other customers are friendly. We started talking to the couple at the next table which was fun and gave us more insight into the people of Derry.

Recently visited to celebrate an anniversary. Meal was 10 outta 10! Lovely atmosphere and very relaxing. Could not fault a thing. Was quite busy so had to wait a while, but bar area very comfortable and we both enjoyed soaking in the buzz. They had also ran out of chips but we were offered other things and it did not... More

We dine at the Exchange quite regularly, and we are never disappointed. The place is always buzzing. If you don't like waiting for a table, go earlier in the evening on a friday/saturday. However, my family and myself don't mind as it also us to have a few drinks at the bar beforehand. The food is fantastic. Can never fault... More

We ate in here before going to the theatre. We got there about 5.30 pm and the restaurant was quite busy. Food was lovely, well presented and portions were generous. I did order baby potatoes with my main and they came with mashed but this was rectified quickly when I notified wait staff. It was reasonably priced for a Friday... More
