We arrived at the Exchange having been told not to miss visiting it if we were in Derry. Shown straight to a table our order for drinks and our dinner was taken almost straightaway. Our starters of chicken kebabs were delightful and we were given plenty of time to digest them before our mains arrived . The courses were not... More

I am a regular lunch time visitor. Food fabulous at all times - never fails. While I always choose Exchange because of the good food, the one big disadvantage is that there is always a long delay between ordering and receiving the food - even when you order the special. This doesn't suit the average punter who is on a... More

Me and my family had a georgous dinner here! We love it.. the only issue is that it is busy- (good sign) anytime I am there we have to wait for ages. This occasion was about an hour. We were told this though and waited at the bar. Maybe could do with a wider vegetarian menu Staff that dealt with... More

I liked it. Very much. It was the last restaurant I checked out before leaving Derry and honestly I thought it was great. I had a bread selection (simple but effective) and a majestic Exchange burger. The service has been spot-on, in my experience.

Went for lunch with son and his italiuan in laws. The food here is usually excellent but I decided to try fish cake with curried kale. God it was dreadful the fish cake need armbands it was literally swimming in a creamy curry liquid. Just gross and sickening

We love going to this restaurant but ALWAYS have to wait, waiting time last Saturday was two hours and we had travelled 40 minutes by car to get there! Obviously, we had to go elsewhere. This happens regularly but bookings are only taken for large groups We missed out on great food, service at affordable prices plus a great food... More

Went last night for a meal. While food was good , atmosphere changed when after we ordered after dinner drinks we were informed not too nicely that we had to vacate our table as we had exceeded the 2.5 hours policy. Staff were rude as they rushed us from our table. one word springs to mind greed!! We will certainly... More
