i was in liverpool early and was really in need of something big and tasty for breakfast. The Portrait House looked inviting and after seeing on the outside menu that they did a cooked breakfast i decided i would try it. The waitress was really nice and welcoming and the building itself was lovely. I decided on the light breakfast... More

Have visited the Portrait House on several occasions, having a different vegetarian dish each time (they have a separate veggie/vegan menu) and have only experienced a meal that wasn't absolutely incredible once. The choice is excellent and you can tell they select their ingredients carefully to create the best flavours. It is very pricey so sadly only really go when... More

I've been two times to the portrait house now. The first visit I was blown away, we were the only customers in there but we did go in after lunch and before dinner time. So would expect everywhere to be quiet. Each time I have been I've ordered exactly the same meals. Fish cakes to start with and fillet medallions... More

An excellent restaurant with a delightful ambience. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The menu was extensive and had dishes with an unusual twist. The steaks were "to die for!"

I have had a drink here a few times when visiting Wirral. Always seemed busy and from what I saw the food looked pretty good. I was staying at a hotel nearby and decided to eat out. It was a Wednesday evening and there was only two other people in the restaurant. The greeting was off putting to say the... More

Just a couple of days ago, with three more seniors, I had a most enjoyable meal at this restaurant. We had a two course fixed price lunch which we all thought was excellent value for money. The portions were good and the accompanying vegetables were of reasonable quality and nicely served separately. You would not expect a place like this... More

Consistently good, with pleasant service and a good atmosphere. The mussels are particularly tasty and well worth trying. The house French red is a Rhone wine and not at all bad for £13.50. However, there's not a lot which makes it stand out from other Wirral restaurants of a similar quality, but that's not a reason not to try it!
