We went for the tasting menu with selected wines. A good choice. Food was interesting and beautifully presented. If being picky I would suggest linen tablecloths would elevate the experience.

Celebrated a 3 year anniversary with a stunning 3 course meal. Each course was presented beautifully, the staff were excellent and the atmosphere was great. For shame this was my first visit but it will certainly not be my last.

Dined here in February very disappointed with value for money. Portions small left still feeling hungary. I have had better meals of a higher caliber for less money. Looked forward to dining here for such a long time but would not go back and would not recommend.

Had a lovely meal only to be let down by poor service. Had to ask on a number of occasions for wine and bill. I don't understand putting wine away from table and staff topping up only for them to be asked to do it more than once. Just leave it on the table!

Dined here last night with our daughter who is working in Derry. Food and service was absolutely first class. No wonder the locals rave about this place, the experience from entering to leaving the restaurant was wonderful. Highly recommend this place

We visited on a Saturday earlier evening and found the food and service excellent. The food was interesting and varied with each of the eight dishes providing a new experience. They also catered knowledgeably for our Coeliac requirements, which gave us confidence and made for a relaxing evening.

Tuesday night, restaurant very quiet, for the 3 of us first time visit. Pleasant welcome and shown to a table in the vicinity of the other diners on a quiet evening. Table beautifully laid out and menus extensive and varied, including 'early bird' although it was 7:30! Staff attentive and answered our questions re menu in a knowledgeable manner. We... More

This was my first time at Browns as part of a group of 7 for Sunday lunch. We had a warm welcome by the friendly staff and the service throughout was top class. I had the seafood fritto for starter - a mixture of deep fried fish and squid: a great range of bites, perfectly cooked and just the right... More
