“Go any time you won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

One of Derry's best places to eat all the reviews are correct you won't be disappointed. I have gone 4 times for lunch and numerous times for dinner but book if your going at the weekend. The food is always tasty quick and served with a smile and a northern charm go for a walk across the peace bridge after Derry is a real treat for foodies lots of places to eat in this city of culture make sure exchange is one of them

“The place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This restaurant is considered one of the best in the city. It is right in the centre of Derry- a beautiful walled city. The restaurant is right by a lovely riverside walk- ideal to build up an appetite beforehand or to walk off your meal afterwards. I left not one single morsel on my plate.The food was beautifully served by friendly staff to our party of ten.
This is the year to visit since Derry is the UK City of Culture 2013. Only disadvantage is that they only take bookings for larger groups and at busy times small numbers may have to wait for a table but it is well worth the wait.

“What a Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Had heard about this establishment on several occasions & visited, with another couple on Saturday 12/1/13 for our 1st time. They had been before.
Will not be our last visit.
Very pleasant & clean inside, staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.
The food was nicely presented & excellent. 4 different dishes & the verdict from all was 'Delicious'.
Also great value for money.
The toilets were also spotless.

“Great food.Great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The Exchange restaurant, in Derry is one of the best eating experiences you will find. The food is excellent as is the service, it is situated in the city centre just around the corner from Guildhall square. There is a lunch menu and a evening menu, both of which I would recommend to locals or visitors alike, and if you like desserts then you will be very well satisfied. I would give this restaurant 10/10 for food, service and location.

“Leader of the pack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

The exchange is the best restaurant for casual dining in Derry, we go at least once every few weeks. The menu has been copied by most of the restaurants in Derry but they cant quite get the quality or consistancy that the Exchange delivers. Well done Mark and team.
