La Sosta is for us the best food in Derry. We dont go as often as we woukd like but when we do we are never disappointed. The food is just beautiful, freshly cooked and served with lovely simple sides and garnish. On our latest visit my husband had the rabbit. It was just delicious. Everything we ate was delicious....
