Can't beat it

Food is always fantastic, service is great and lots of variety on the cocktail menu. Also, you can't beat the price. I visit a lot, as do my friends. Highly recommended.

Hadn't been to the restaurant in a year or so, so a few friends and I decided to go for a change, bearing in mind we had always had good previous experiences. We booked a table for 5.45 and when we arrived the place was absolutely packed so we knew there would be a wait but didn't mind. We were... More

I ate here with two friends last week, it wasn't a positive experience to be honest. The first thing that became apparent to me as I sat at the table was that the menus were dirty!....and it was only 1 o' clock which was very off-putting!...obviously not cleaned from the night before!. I know for the month of November it... More

I have ate here many times and I have never been disappointed in a meal. The menu is quite diverse with something for everyone. Some of the dishes are a little salty - which I know will ring alarm bells with some restaurant goers. Its a little out of town and does the occasional offer 50% off etc at certain... More

Haven't been here for a couple of years....& things are definitely not as good, which is a shame. It is the first time I have ever been & the place hasn't been bunged. The place is feeling tired & in need of some love, a splash of paint, seating recovered. Everything was ok, but nothing better, staff pleasant & efficient,... More

Just been for a gorgeous meal for two at Quaywest,I'm a frequent customer yet I'm always amazed at how lovely,friendly and efficient the staff are here! Even though they are clearly all busy bees! And as for the food,it's second to none,so that just leaves the atmosphere,I just can't wait to return so yes,the atmosphere is just buzzing.

Contemporary, hip and great for singles, groups and even families with their little ones. The Irish routinely take their young children with them when they go out to eat; no matter what the venue. So its Friday night and we took a chance by not making reservations, big mistake. The first two of three desired restaurants required a one and... More

Had a great evening in Quaywest. The food was excellent and had an impressive menu. The Mrs and I were traveling around Ireland we had just arrived in Derry and this place was recommended to us. We had been in Belfast for 2 nights before and this was better than anywhere we found there. The staff were all brilliant, friendly... More

Called in for lunch,....very busy,..so had to wait 20 mins....Staff were exceptional,..curteous & polite....knowing exactly the order which people came in. Seating was well planned,..and although busy,....still intimate enough to hav a private conversation. Bit of a delay in getting our order taken,...when food did arrive,...it was tasty,..(could have been a lot warmer)....and spoiled by some glupe that is supposed... More
