With stylish decour this place can be very busy, for some reason Sunday was busy, but if youre not in a rush take a seat and get some tapas while you wait.

Ate last night at the Exchange, you get a feeling that it's good when the wait for a table on a wet Wednesday night is 90 minutes, but we sat in the bar with a drink. Once seated the menu offers a great range of meals, I had the steak with pepper sauce which was really good, folks I was... More

We had a lovely dinner in The Exchange during a recent visit to Derry while we drove the Causeway Coast. The meal was good value and very tasty and the staff were warm and welcoming. It is a reasonably priced place with good food and no fuss.

We brought our parents here for a meal. It was fabulous there was no seats when we arrived however the waiter got us one as soon as he could. It was really busy but the service was very quick. Great menu and loads of choice and the portion size really generous would definitely recommend this Resturant.

We came to the Exchange whilst on Holiday and enjoyed 12oz steaks with all the Derry trimmings... garlic potatoes , tobacco onions and pepper sauce. It was delicious.! The exchange doesn't take bookings so don't leave dinner too late as it can be very busy. The staff are attentive, efficient and nothing is too much trouble for them.
