A restaurant that serves really good food very well indeed. Service is first rate with staff proving very patient and accommodating. That this restaurant is so busy whilst being away from the main city centre areas is testament to the quality of the product. It also has a fabulous deli to boot

My husband and I booked a table for the "fishy extravaganza" evening that the restaurant was holding. Having never eaten here before we weren't sure what to expect. We were delighted with excellent service, truly faultless along with very well presented and tasty food! A series of appetisers, all equally delicious, followed by sublime lobster bisque and topped of with... More

We finally made it here (dockside restaurant) after trying to get a table previously but the restaurant was always full so obviously very popular! We both had a lovely three course meal and will definitely have to return as there were plenty of dishes we would love to have tried. The food was fantastic and well presented. The tomato and...

Delifonseca has become one of my favorites. Its reliable excellent food. If you want to impress with your good taste, this is the place to do it. The breakfasts are lovely and hand cooked chips to die for, I have tried so hard to get them as tasty, they must have a secret. The deli shop will have something for... More

Delifonseca is always a favourite when we visit Liverpool, the food is wonderful and the Deli has so many delights, you could spend ages browsing. We turned up today at lunch time (Sunday) 9 of us only to be told that the restaurant was fully booked until 4pm. Then our waitress Debbie stepped in and arranged tables for us outside... More

Have been here on several occasions now and whilst the quality of the food remains high, the service is getting worse with every visit. On this last visit we were served promptly and then completely ignored. After trying to catch the waitresses attention for nearly half an hour after our main course was cleared, to order desserts and coffee, I... More

Dear Gillybean Glad to hear you still enjoy our food but disappointed to hear about the failure in service. Also disappointed that you did not feedback your frustrations at the time in order for a senior staff member to apologise and rectify things on the spot. As someone who has been a regular we would hope that you would see... More

Had a lovely night at Delifonseca Dockside this weekend. Relaxed, friendly but excellent staff. Fantastic wine list, lovely atmosphere, great locally sourced food. And you can shop in the deli before/after too. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Wonderful menu. Makes for a great relaxed dinner experience at the right price too. Generous portion sizes.

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.
