have followed the head chef kevin pyke , for some time , and have never been disapointed. This new venture is a triumph both with the menu, service and overall experience . Well done to all concerned, may you go from strength to strength. You all deserve it. Will be back to work through the rest of the menu!!

First time in new restaurant. Great surrounding and menu to match. So nice to have a nice menu, makes a change from the usual menus in Derry. Food was excellent, particularly enjoyed the baked chocolate mouse!! We will definitely be back.

Anyone who has visited my city will know the place wreaks of below average restraunts serving the standard fish/chicken/steak dishes. Watt and Co have finally given us a seafood and steak restraunt that many have longed for.

Between us on the table we had the steak, bream, a fish curry and the hake. The ingredients looked wonderful and tasted just as fresh. The steak was cooked to perfection for my partner, and my friends curry was mildly spiced. Just perfect with lovely chunks of monk fish and king prawns. The bream, steak and hake were fantastic.

The only slight disappointment were the musscles to start. Taste wise they were perfect, but they were quite small (understand that larger ones are hard to come by around here).

The service for desert was slightly slow, however the waiting staff were sincere and apologetic.

All in all a fantastic meal and finally some good hearty seafood in derry - and the rest!
will be back very soon
