Generosity marks this place out. We starter with complimentary canapés and amazing breads, with hand-churned butter and fragrant oil. An amuse bouche followed, then our starters — turf smoked beef was gorgeous, served with amazing ravioli, and the truffle topped asparagus and bacon jam was similarly delicious— then, out of the blue, another complimentary course of lamb shoulder, just a...

What can we say? The food - stunning. Tiny delicate beetroot meringue and seaweed crisp, an espresso cup of silky smooth soup, scallops and turf smoked beef to start and perfectly cooked monkfish main with black garlic chips and creamy dreamy buttery mas. And the most amazing banana soufflé to share for dessert. Truly truly amazing food! The atmosphere? Relaxed... More

Restaurant took a short notice booking for 8 and catered well for all tastes both young and old. Our group ages ranged from 8 to 50 and everybody really enjoyed their meal. Would highly recommend if treating visitors to the area and you want to show off how good local produce is and can be presented. As always with Browns... More

I think this is the best restaurant I have ever been in and I have visited a lot. From the moment you go in the door you are welcomed, shown a table, offered a drink as if you are the one and only guest there. The waiting staff and Serena are second to none, they anticipate your every need or... More

Visited Browns twice in the last few weeks for a 50th celebration and a leaving meal for a mate returning to Australia. Food was fantastic as always and the service was pretty good too. Best food in Derry 100 %.

Going to Brown's is a bit like going home. You are in a comfortable environment, surrounded by love & warmth & you leave all your worries behind because you know that the food will be good! Our first experience of the online mid-week foodie offer & we were also celebrating 14yrs marriage. Perfect combination! The wonderful Kevin greeted us at... More
