Derry City has Galway vibes. This was the verdict of our youngest following a family day trip to the Maiden City during Twixmas. We went to the Tower Museum, walked the old town’s walled circumference, paid our respects at Free Derry corner and tried unsuccessfully to get into Peadar O’Donnell’s (there was no room at the inn thanks to Covid sit-down restrictions). And when we entered the doors of El Tapas Grá for something to eat before heading back to Belfast, I knew exactly what she meant.

A rockin’, pumpin’ soundtrack greets you. It’s loud enough to get your foot tapping but not so distracting as to make conversation a shouting match. Front of house staff are on the ball and immediately after checking our vaccination QR codes no time is wasted to walk us through the cosy bare brick and wood panelled dining room to a table by the window overlooking busy Waterloo Place and take a drinks order.
