Great food and service. Would definitley recommend
Beautiful food, well presented. Felt safe as staff and customers mostly seemed to be following coronavirus guidelines.
Great service and food as usual! Favourite dinner spot in derry
We had a lovely lunch, excellent service (especially the new procedures put in place due to COVID) and exceptional value for money. ☺️
Soda and Starch is an exceptional restaurant. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff who always go that extra mile for their diners. Nothing is a bother to them. The food is spectacular with flavours that never disappoint. The restaurant offers high end food is the most relaxed of settings. If you haven’t tried it then you must and soon. Don’t forget to ask for the Guinness bread. It’s amazing!!!!!!
This was fining at its very finest in a delightful restaurant. The sharing mezza perfect. My ham hock terrine superb. The main course of rare venison roe just melt in the mouth decadence.
Delicious food, and I loved the cartoon pictures of local celebrities, very quirky!
Fabulous food served in a beautiful environment. I would recommend the venison which was amazing and the flavours of the chicken on the main menu was delicious.
Very good quality food served by very friendly staff. Tbey restaurant was a little cooler than it should have been, but not cold.
1st time in here and must say really enjoyed the food and the staff were so friendly
Excellent food and service. Very good value for money.
Online booking system very good. Table was ready when we arrived. Service was good. Only issue was we were served some stale bread with soup, but the staff were very apologetic. Nice restaurant and would go back again,
Derry’s hidden foodie gem. The food, restaurant, staff and overall experience was 2nd to none! The quality of the food was exceptional from start to finish. It was the perfect restaurant to help us celebrate my wife’s birthday. Went to Soda & Starch on the back of a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint!! The food was amazing. Cooked to perfection, and every element of each course oozed perfection! Kudos to the owner, chefs and waiting staff for a wonderful experience. We will be back and recommending this as the best place to eat when in Derry City !!
From the moment we arrived and were greeted by our name was very professional yet friendly and welcoming
The service we received from our server, KIM , was second to none. Her knowledge of the menu and what was available was very helpful, to the point we went with both her recommendations.
The meal was excellent.
Special night out and family reunion.
We really enjoyed the sharing platters and the John Dory fish was excellent
A cosy gem hidden away from the busy streets. Friendly smiling staff who deliver prompt service. Food was excellent. I am so happy I gave the place a try.
Hidden gem of a place with amazing food. Great atmosphere
I can’t fault our evening! The food was delicious! Which is particularly impressive during a Christmas party night. It was all served quickly too which I didn’t expect, again, on a busy night. The head waitress has a personality for front of house-engaging with your customers makes a massive difference to a visit. Great atmosphere overall. I’ll be back!!!
Really enjoyed our meal at Soda & Starch. We had the festive menu which was delicious and good value for what we got. The staff was also very good and understanding as we were running late for our booking due to trying to get parked in the city at this time of year.
We were squeezed in last minute as a late booking, and staff were extremely welcoming and attentive. We had the Christmas Festive menu, which was absolutely delicious, flavoursome and very good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Had a nice meal on Saturday night - didn't really like the starter but maybe I just chose wrong. Good steaks and staff very friendly and attentive.
Food great.Location ok.Staff v welcoming.Will definitely return.
We had a fantastic meal and will definitely be back. The staff were very attentive, the ambiance in the place is lovely and overall we had a great experience. Would highly recommend
Food was not tasty so not worth the money. Bread not good fish and chips tasteless . Fish pie just all right organic vegetables contained bits of bacon. Duck was apparently ok. Ezra started disappointing
Myself and husband had a great meal here on Saturday night. Service was superb. Friendly ut professional.
Food was fantastic.
Atmosphere was great.
Just a lovely wee night.
Will most definitely be back.
Friendly service, the steak dish went down a treat. Enjoyed the lamb dish better last week. The meat was more succulent and mash were lovely, as was the juis.
Good atmosphere and lovely staff
Gorgeous food, lovely atmosphere and great value with their Tuesday to Friday Menu. Great choice and quality
Fabulous meal, amazing service and excellent music, highly recommend this lovely place
Food was outstanding. Looking forward to my next visit.
Would say this is my favourite restaurant in Derry! Great food , great atmosphere and the best staff!
Brilliant food, even better service. A truly great restaurant in Derry.
I have eaten here a lot. Poor service this time and food was not up to standard. A lot of very drunk people around, one falling into our table.
Was a very nice restaurant when it first opened but sadly no longer. Average food, poor value and atrocious service. Staff is complacent and does not take complaints at all seriously. The management has a lot to learn about customer service. Such a shame that the restaurant fails to capitalise on its ideal location.
Our waitress very friendly and welcoming. Food delicious & service excellent.
Great menu choices
Arrived an hour early than booked and got seated, service was great and food delicious, gin cocktails too and I dont really drink gin, will definitely return when back in Derry.
