We intended to visit with a wheelchair bound person but were informed there is no ladies wheelchair accessible toilet, just the gents toilet which could be used by the lady. We attended without the lady and the food was very good as was the service.

We went to the Sooty Olive based on a recommendation from a local hotel.

The food was fantastic, the cocktails amazing and the staff were so incredibly lovely and welcoming and the chef was a bit of a perfectionist which I really loved.

I would highly recommend the Sooty Olive :)

Have eaten here two days in a row. That good. Restaurant is a basic layout, but clean and cosy enough. Staff here superb, great service from all. Pride in their work and establishment, it shows, so refreshing. The food - excellent. Best I've had in Derry, hands down. Tried a bit of everything that was ordered. The salmon, wonderful. Had the lamb shank - comes off the bone at ease yet so juicy, perfect. Now the deserts, wow, sampled the brownie - heaven. The ginger parkin - wow. But just had to have the apple crumble - you must try this, you can't go wrong, the winner. Be back again.
