We found this place based on an indication. It was a delightful surprise. Great food and a great environment. If you like meat, you must give it a try!

Fantastic food but don't be late because it gets very busy. Very modern and large menu. In a safe part of Derry just outside the walled art of the city.

Excellent boutique restaurant in Derry city. Upscale atmosphere with reasonable price. Friday nights are busy with locals. Give your name to the hostess and sit at the bar while you wait to be seated. Eclectic menu options

Been here numerous times for lunch and dinner. Food and cocktails are so good here, with loads to choose from on the menu. Always real busy though especially at night, so always better booking. Has a great buzz about it.

After arriving on the train, we had a lovely morning shopping and were ready for sustenance. Food, in The Exchange, was excellent and plentiful. Staff friendly, helpful and courteous. A must for every Derry visit.

Visited with friends on a Friday night in August. We were advised there would be a wait but our table was available far quicker than we expected. Excellent customer service throughout the evening and the food was gorgeous. Well done.

I ordered an open chili chicken sandwich (with chili skins on the side) and my mum had a chiabatta chicken and beacon sandwich (with chips on the side). It was absolutely beautiful... chicken was so tender... the ambiance was pleasant as were the staff! Lovely experience for lunch.
