The Exchange Restaurant & Wine Bar
When you enter The Exchange, you can tell you’re in for a special night. The décor is luxurious, the cocktails are flowing, and birthdays and anniversaries are being celebrated all around you, but this Derry hotspot manages to retain a warm and informal atmosphere.
With friendly staff and regulars who have been dining there for decades, there’s a family feel to The Exchange, which also extends to the ownership. Shauna Froydenlund and her husband Mark, former joint chef patrons in London’s Michelin-starred Marcus restaurant, recently returned to Derry to take the helm from Shauna’s dad.
The acclaimed pair have been adding some exciting new twists here and there, while keeping The Exchange’s winning formula: locally sourced ingredients, wonderful service, and wide variety of classics and more adventurous dishes. From steaks and fresh fish to curries and stir-fries, not to mention seriously indulgent desserts, there is something for everyone on the extensive menu.
