This is our third time visiting Brunels. The service is excellent. We were celebrating and they treated us so well, we felt very special. The food was amazing, a total taste sensation. Wine was excellent and delicious dessert cocktails to finish. It is the best!

Fantastic evening of quality food. Great location and very stylish decor. Food was amazing, we both had the langoustine special and halibut dish, very tasty and great sides. Lovely italian wine recommended by the staff. Definitely streets ahead from anywhere else in the locality.

Without doubt the best food whilst on our Northern Ireland tour. I had Mussels and my Wife had fish. Cooked to perfection. The Waitress from Derry was really nice and offered some good advice for our visit to Newcastle. Don't miss it.
