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

We ate here a few times and it was pretty standard stuff it was nice enough the food but for the price you expect that little bit extra. 12 pound or so for a sunday lunch, I chose chicken, nos for that price you would expect lovely slices of chicken breast, well it still had the skin on, and if...

We eat out all around town and have to say this is our favourite restaurant! The staff are always so friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the menu not to mention the great selections of specials on the board! Most recent visit on 4th July we were spoiled again by the legendary Debbie and her team, she always remembers your names... More

When I go to a restaurant that charges fairly high prices, I expect excellent service, a nice ambiance, good facilities (whether that is clean toilets or free WIFI), and good food. Unfortunately, none of this materialised during my visit to Delifonseca Dockside today. When I arrived at the Deli entrance, I was greeted by a "Please wait to be seated"... More

Dear Doctor Craig Thank you for the feedback. My apologies if our services fell short on your visit. Your visit around 3pm on a Monday coincided with some sherry staff training and inadvertently the service you received fell below par. We take the product training of our staff very seriously so were pleased to be able to secure a sherry... More

Excellent lunch @ Delifonseca Dockside... Hot summer day and lots of choice, so what to have? My friend settled for a Lebanese Vegan Salad, not because they are vegan, just because it sounded great. Yummy with Chick peas, Tomatoes, Red onion, Croutons and a great home made dressing. I went for the Anchovy Salad (my 1st time) and that was... More

Many thanks for the feedback - the two different types of anchovies make that salad one of my favourites! More

I have been a big fan of Delifonseca for quite some time and not only shop here regularly in their charming Deli Section but also have dined at the in house restaurant several times. By and large the staff provide very professional service which compliments the up market atmosphere that the establishment quite clearly tries to provide, I have also... More

Dear Degsyone I am always disappointed to hear customers dissatisfied in any way but equally frustrated that they'd rather write their second only ever tripadvisor review than have a quiet word with a senior member of staff. Particularly given you are/were a big fan and have visited many times both to shop and dine. A simple word would have allowed... More

Needing good food after a tiring game of golf,mew headed for Delifonseca. We were not disappointed. Great 'dips' sharing plata to begin with, followed by amazing main courses. Meal complete with outstanding coffee. Efficient & engaging service.

Delifonseca Dockside is a little off the beaten track, but it's certainly worth the effort to go. Split into two, with one half a deli, the other a dining area. You can browse and buy the finest food and drink selection any deli could wish to have (I'm a particular fan of their own cold first pressing greek olive oil,... More

Went Saturday evening with my son for a meal. Really nice food, very busy. Service was good earlier on in the evening but as it got a bit later on in the evening had problems attracting the attention of the staff for more drinks & the bill. Desserts looked fab but I was full after my main meal so I... More
