“Never disappoints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

This was our second time here and as always we received excellent service despite the restaurant being very very busy on a summer Friday night. The food was excellent, portion size perfect and the total surprising especially with 30% off! Highly recommended, easy to see why this is one of Londonderrys favourite eating establishments for locals and visitors alike.

“Perfect Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

You go to a steak house for steak, and mine was divine.
Perfectly cooked and I chose a blue cheese sauce which was so tasty.
I also had the pork ribs for a starter. Great size and falling off the bone.
The sauce was great.
The only dish that didn't get a 10/10 was the satay it was very sweet and not very nutty.
But you don't go to a steakhouse for satay...
Service was great, our waitress was lovely and a lot of fun.
30% off the bill was great, just times your total by .7 and you're done!
Would highly recommend.

“Good food and very friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights in Derry and liked it the first night, so we went back the second time we were in Derry. We got the same server twice (can't remember her name, but she was very friendly and actually remembered what we had ordered 2 days prior !!).

On our first visit, we had good smoked salmon, the ribs were ok, but the garlic mashed potatoes were awesome.

The second night we had a risotto dish and another fish dish which were both delicious.

There was live music one night in the far room from where we were sitting, so it allowed us to visit with our fellow tourists from Paddywagon but still enjoy the music.
