What the guide books say

Flavour of Tyrone

“The staff made my evening! They were so professional, knowledgeable and dedicated”. The food is  among the best I have tasted in any establishment. Completely new flavours to me. The range of locally produced food that is promoted was amazing! The best I have ever come across.”

Taste of Ulster

“Oysters prides itself purely on being the essence of good food, executing excellence in customer service and being every diner’s answer to a phenomenal dining experience….menus based on locally sourced produce, manifested in imaginatively designed and creative menus.”

Georgina Campbell

“A genuinely warm welcome from well trained staff sets the tone for an experience where excellent customer service and attention to detail provide the highlights. Seasonally led menus read well and are changed often to reflect the availability of local foods.”

Sperrins Tourism

This award winning restaurant has become synonymous with imaginatively created Menu’s designed around locally sourced produce, cooked fresh to order. Compliment this with a select wine choice, excellence in customer service and intimate and tasteful interiors, rendering this exceptional restaurant a true gem within the north west. 

The Irish Food Guide (John & Sally Mc Kenna’s Guides)

“Oysters isn’t your typical restaurant….these guys are dedicated, hard-working, doggedly creative and imaginative….food that is well sourced… a lot of culinary flair…. in particular, a strong eye for colour and presentation. The way the crew at Oysters work is promising in every way, so expect to enjoy the work of a talented, and surprising, team of people.”

“Our overall dining experience in Oysters was exceptional – from the moment we entered until we left. The staff were very friendly, polite and professional and the food was of an excellent standard. We would definitely return and would definitely recommend the restaurant to everyone.”
