On the banks of the River Foyle, the main restaurant of the City Hotel takes its name from the old Thompson's Mill that once occupied this site. The decor is airy and cool. Menu might include medallions of pork fillet, oven baked salmon or supreme of chicken with a herb stuffing. Thanks to its popularity, reservations are recommended (and practically essential on weekends). The Two's Company menu, based on two people sharing two courses, is £35 for two people. Throw in
an impressive but not expensive wine list, and this adds up to a fine place to chill while taking in some great river views. Breakfast is served daily, but lunch only on Sundays.
