“Avoid”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

Good location. Staff not friendly or helpful, depressing atmosphere. I was charged £9 for badly cooked pasta in what tasted like a shop brand of tomato ketchup. Awful place, would not go back

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

Happened upon this restaurant as we were passing through Derry - Gerard and the wait staff took great care of us. Food was excellent, atmosphere was nice - should we ever be in Derry again, I'd go back.

“All that glitters is not gold”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

My son and his girlfriend, visiting from Paris for the Halloween festival, ate late one evening over the Halloween weekend. They had two courses each ,shared a bottle of wine, and paid just over £50. They both felt ill immediately after the meal and continued to feel unwell the next day.Considering they were here only for a short time, it really spoilt their break, never mind what impression it made on a visitor from France. They both ate the prawn cocktail starter and shared a bottle of rather acidic wine. Upon complaining the next day we were told evrything was fresh etc etc. However there was definitely something tainted about this meal. I would say that there are better and cheaper restaurants within walking distance of this one, so walk on by!

“so disappointed”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

Staff (apart from blonde haired woman at till) very nice, however food mediocre. and not warm enough. Tiniest piece of salmon, and flavourless - food was not seasoned. £44 for 3 mains and 3 drinks which was far too expensive considering quality of food. Restaurant has such potential.
