Fabulous afternoon tea last Monday served by the lovely Debbie who was a mine of local information but also gave first class service with a smile. I will come back next time I am in Liverpool and would highly recommend for atmosphere, food and above all service.

Visited this week for a relaxing lunch. Service felt a little lack lustre. Food was simply divine. Sit outside in the sunshine to experience so fresco at its finest. Will be back hoping the staff smile a little more!

I been several time to the same venue all time day. Only my thoughts but I feel that service is dropping off not as good as it was. I also feel the same is happening with the food that is being produced. I suspect they becoming complaisant in the Restraunt. Disappointed given all the times I have been and the... More

The food is excellent and it is served in hearty portions. Good selection of wines. , beers and soft drinks. My only criticism is that the staff can on occasion be inattentive as someone else has noted. But do not let this put you off as the food is worth it

Was unfortunate to book the Travelodge opposite - but this more than made up for it - glass of wine in the afternoon sitting outside in the sun, great fresh local breakfast in the morning and then an evening snack - all exceptional quality and reasonable prices. Friendly helpful staff - very much recommended and will re-visit when next in... More

This establishment combines a good quality restaurant with an excellent deli attached . It's not cheap but appears to represent good value. At the time of our visit the restaurant was quiet, the staff were pleasant but could have been more attentive. We only had coffee and did not have a meal but if the quality of the food is... More

I've actually been here a few times as a good friend lives in the area and books it. It's decent but some of the menu choices can sometimes be strange and you do wonder how they can justify the price. That being said, I have obviously had some nice meals here otherwise I wouldn't have gone back. Sunday lunch is... More

This is our second excellent meal here. This time a grown up family group of 6 the previous time with friends & family in big group of 11. Both times excellent selection off blackboard which had changed between visits. All meals were great, hot and served together. Atmosphere and service all good. Bonus of a deli to look at after.

I love the deli bit, and as a separate entity it would get 4 stars; but as for the adjoining restaurant, I have never been overly impressed with. We went for breakfasts, granted it was a bit busy they took ages to take our order and then about 45 mins before it arrived. It's okay there, a little pretentious as... More

Having not been to Liverpool for some time, my wife & I decided to give Delifonseca another visit having enjoyed a meal there a couple of years ago. It's still as good as ever offering an interesting and innovative menu supported by a decent selection of drinks with a strong focus on locally brewed beers. The Baltic Gold brewed at... More
