Always excellent, today's lunch featured a beautifully cooked veal steak, followed by a scrumptious chocolate torte. The staff are attentive and there is always a great atmosphere. I love the adjacent deli too.

Found this place near our hotel and thought we would give it a to go save going into town. We were pleased we did as the food was excellent and a good choice to choose from. Nicely cooked nicely presented and served by friendly staff well worth a visit.

I have been a loyal customer of the shop and restaurant for five years but will not be returning whilst they employ such a rude and aggressive manager at their dockside venue. Our party of four booked based on their Christmas menu as advertised on their website and were surprised and disappointed to find that the menu at the restaurant... More

Walked in here after a long day of shopping near the city center based on reviews from the internet. This restaurant features both an upstairs and ad downstairs. Although it looks like the downstairs has more of a "bar" like feel. We grabbed a seat upstairs and were promptly served. I got the greek salad which came with big chunks... More

We had a lovely meal here and the location is good, accessible on foot from the waterfront if you fancy a good walk, or from Merseyrail. Some service problems the day we had lunch, just changing over to Christmas menu, and seemed short staffed. It took twenty minutes for us to get anyone's attention. And our chosen main course was...

The deli is excellent with loads of choice and it's well worth a browse pre or post meal. The menu offer a good selection. The platters are especially good- we had the dipping platter and it was wonderful and so filling. Main courses are very reasonable priced and lovely! The service was brilliant, everyone was so friendly and chatty. I... More

After dining several times at this restaurant, we have a good idea what to expect. The menu is appealing and offers dishes, which are a little unusual and are reasonably priced. In this they mostly succeed. This deli with restaurant attached offers an attractive businesslike ambiance well suited to its dockside location. However, our last visit was marred by what... More

Dear Gastronome1000 Thank you for the feedback. I'm sure you can imagine that staff training is an on-going process.
