Service good and staff friendly. Very helpful with gluten free diet. The starter and dessert was 3 tasters each and we would have preferred a better choice . These tasters were good. The main course was ok but not special.

Derry city is full of really great restaurants, when you visit the city you are absolutely spoilt for choice. Arbutus is right inside the Millenium Forum and the setting, staff and food are all excellent. Definitely recommend!
