We arrived late after a traumatic journey but the staff were welcoming and we could not have had a more pleasant experience. We were soothed into a delightful state of comfort by fabulous food and careful service. Taste and presentation were excellent.

We opted for the taster menu which consisted of lots of small courses. Each one was cooked to perfection. I could not fault one thing about each meal. Staff very friendly and very relaxed but proffesional establishment.

Always a fantastic local gem Either for a romantic meal or a family celebration. Great quality food, impressive service and an interesting menu. The Sunday lunch menu is very affordable and the wine pairing suggestions are great! Would totally recommend!

Booked my favourite restaurant for my birthday dinner with my best friend, who flew home especially for the weekend. The food was excellent as ever. However, I found the service and attentiveness sub standard. From the outset everything seemed a little off the standard I've come to both love and expect from browns. No one took our coats, we had... More

Thanks to all the staff at Browns Restaurant and Champagne Lounge for a warm welcome, fantastic food and a superb selection of wines on our visit last night (19-4-17) Highly recommended. Having dined at their sister restaurant Browns on the Green and having heard so much about the restaurant on Waterside, we were eager to see if the experience was... More

With so much said about Browns Restaurant & Champagne Lounge being the 'Best Restaurant in Ulster', my husband and I decided to let our tastebuds put it to the test to see if the award was accurate or exaggerated in our humble opinion. We visited for Sunday lunch and although the restaurant was busy, the atmosphere was relaxed and we... More

This place just gets better and better. It's been a while since we've had the pleasure of eating here and we were welcomed warmly by Chris the manager. Having prebooked online weeks ago, this was a meal we were really looking forward to. We were seated initially in the champagne lounge area & had plenty of time to peruse the... More

The food was delicious as well top quality as always. I will definitely be back as I always have a brilliant experience... More

We ate here twice in four weeks and had very different experiences. The first time there were four of us and while the food was good the service was terrible. We hadn't even sat down (really) when we were asked to make a wine selection. We hadn't decided what to eat never mind what to drink! The food was excellent... More
