This was our 2nd visit to Browns as after our first visit we decided we must save and savour our visits to special occasions. We were not to be disappointed. From the first greeting to the end the service was fantastic with special mention of Amy, but it would be unfair not to advise that all we met were very... More

Been meaning to leave this review for a while. Had a fantastic dining experience here with husband last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere was professional but friendly and the food rich and sophisticated. Definitely one for a special occasion.

Beautiful and amazing food, but ordinary service. To come & enjoy a tasting menu, or any dinner, you expect a bit of interaction and feedback. Felt ignored for most of the meal, as for example, I had to get up to ask for a cheese board and our water sat empty for half the meal. Apart from this it was... More

Gorgeous, fine cuisine that was beautifully presented and tasted exceptional. Great service and friendly staff and special compliments to chef Sean Lafferty the Guinness bread melted in my mouth and the hazelnut cake was to die for, in fact every single course was sublime. We will certainly be returning soon.

I couldn't fault the meal. However, on the second visit with family for dinner, the meal, while it looked great, lacked seasoning (I had to... More

We have been going to this restaurant for several years and have neglected to write a review. My wife and I had dinner this evening and the whole experience was spectacular. The food left us speechless and the service was first class as always. Ian and his team just go from strength to strength. If you have not eaten at... More

Was in Browns, Bonds Hill in Derry City today. It was an excellent lunch. As good as you would get anywhere. Staff were very attentive and the food was just excellent. Well done Browns Restaurant, Bonds Hill, Derry City. If you are from outside the Maiden City and can travel by train you are just a 5 minute walk away... More
