It's a venue beside foyle bridge and you would expect a fast meal for travellers, the only minus was the service was a bit slow but the food was tasty and good value, 2 course for £12. Plenty parking and perfect location

The food in the Waterfoot Hotel never fails to impress. The menu is varied, reasonably priced and the staff are attentive.

I visited the Waterfoot yesterday with some family. I eat here regularly and while the service is always pretty poor, the food is usually good. Yesterday was a different story! We arrived at the hotel shortly after 5pm, the area where we pay your bill was busy so we stood for a few minutes waiting for someone to serve us.... More

As we live locally ww would eat here at least once a month. The last time we visited we were very disappointed with the quality of the food and has left it for a while but decided we would try again as maybe it was a bad experience. However again our meals were not good. Both chicken dishes were overcooked... More

Nice Bar attached to the hotel restaurant and also where they serve breakfast. Prices are very reasonable and the bar is fully stocked. Massive wine cellar as well.

Food was good, service was bad. Was served by 5 different members of staff with staff running about the place and each one giving us different information. The chairs and table were disgusting covered in crumbs and dirt. . I was also disappointed when I asked for a chocolate fudge cake and received a chocolate gateau, although it was nice... More

When working in Derry a trip is always on the cards to this place. The food quality and choice is exceptional, and the staff are very friendly. The restaurant is very modern and looks very expensive but in fact the prices are very reasonable. I would say if you're going in Londonderry make the trip as you won't be disappointed

Was out for dinner with my boyfriend and was an absolutely amazing evening. Our waiter Adam really went over and above for us. His knowledge of the menu and of the bar was spectacular. Really great restaurant and would definitely return. 10 out of 10 and 100 out of 10 for Adam. Thanks Again
