Fodor's Expert Review Thompson's Restaurant
On the banks of the River Foyle, this airy and cool main restaurant of the City Hotel takes its name from the old Thompson's Mill that once occupied this site. The 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 (available every night except Saturday), 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. The early-bird dinner, served Sunday–Thursday (5:30–7:30), is also good value at £12 for two courses. Breakfast is served daily, but lunch only on Sundays.
