“Fast service, fine food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

My girlfriend and I went to Pan Am before the Michael McIntyre show at the Echo arena. The restaurant is located in the Albert Docks next to the arena. Very quick service from friendly staff. Food was very tasty! I thoroughly recommend this restaurant!

“Staff Need to talk to each other”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

First time at Pan Am for food last night, booked table for 5pm for pre concert meal. Finally got out at 7.15 for a 7.30start ! Basically the staff don't talk to each other. all very nice and courteous but ............. When we sat at our table we were asked if we would like some bread and olives to eat whilst studying menu by the hostess who showed us to our seats. We said yes please. Order taken very quickly by another waiter and starters arrived in rapid time. After the starters had been eaten the bread and olives arrived from the original girl which we turned away having now had our starter. We then waited 3/4 of an hour for our mains which was totally unacceptable. Still plenty of time so we did order dessert but explained taht we wouldn't have time for hot drinks as we needed to get to the concert. Desserts arrived and despite saying anything but chocolate for the icecream and seeing the waiter write this down guess what the waitress brought? No time by then to send it back so we asked for the bill and showed our concert tickets for our 20% discount, the bill arrived without the 20% discount, so went up to find someone and the waiter told us we should have shown our tickets to him not the waitress! The staff were really nice and to each comment / query the answer was "no problem" but it was a problem. Pan Am advertise the pre concert deal on their web site and even name the Echo arena so when people book a table 2 1/2 hours before a concert starts and say at every stage of the booking and on arrival that they are going to a concert its not unreasonable to expect to be seated and waiting for the concert to start and NOT as happened to us to be still walking down the aisle to our seats as the lights went down and the first act started. Food by the way was excellent!

“Good quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Popped in to th Pam Am while passing for lunch. Both had a Soup and a Sandwich as this was recommended by one of the staff. Sandwich was actually a freshly made hot chicken wrap which was very good. Food came within a few minutes and was very reasonably priced. The bar was in a good location and seemed more an evening venue which we would probably try if we returned.

“Lovely spot for a leisurely lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We have visited this bar a number of times during shopping trips to Liverpool and have never been disappointed. We visited again recently for a light lunch and a couple of drinks. The bar was quite quiet which makes for a lovely relaxing lunch, overlooking the Albert Dock and was great for watching the world go by.
Service was good, food was freshly prepared and there is a good selection of drinks and cocktails. Prices are a little high, but may be what you would expect for a bar in a tourist area.
We will certainly visit again next time we visit the city.
