“Great, very popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Excellent restaurant with lots of parking and a good (if expensive) deli attached. Good, straightforward food and selection of Liverpool Organic beers as well as wine to accompany it. Be warned though, this place is very popular and at busy times there can be a wait for a table - if you are lucky enough to get one at all. It has a nice laid back atmosphere and is great for lunch. Worth booking in advance though, if you plan to go at busy times on busy days like Fridays.

“Great Food Truly Honest Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Always great food a firm favorite of mine for lazy weekend breakfasts and lunch's. i do not however visit every week so would not call myself noticeable, however this week i had breakfast with three other's and confused the bill by putting £10.00 extra as well as a tip on the tray. Thankfully somebody came over whilst we were in the deli and pointed out the excess on the bill, in honesty how many people could say this would happen? i know of no other business that would go and tell somebody they had left too much money. I thank you all for not only your great Egg Florentine and wonderful coffee but your amazing honesty. See you again soon.

“Excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I was thrilled when I found out Delifoneseca were opening a place up on the docks, as their Stanley Street place is fantastic. This place doesn't dissapoint.

I have visited the deli on many occasions, and eaten lunch there about three times. The deli is well stocked with interesting things at reasonable prices. I particularly like the balsamic pickled onions, even if they are about £3 for 10! The cheese section is very well stocked, as is the cooked meats section. The bread section is also good but could do with more stock as they've hardly got anything left by the time I've got there.

The butchers (Broughs) serves very high quality meat and the butchers are happy to tell you all about their products and how their sourced.

The main restaurant gets very busy so it is well worth booking in advance, even for lunch. I always have the falafel wrap with chunky chips, mostly because I ordered it once and really liked it so just stuck with it.

The staff are very helpful and clearly well trained.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone, whether they're just looking for somewhere to pick up some nice deli bits or looking for a nice place to take their Nan out to lunch. Something for everyone at Delifonseca.

“Consistent quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The restaurant is compliment by a well stocked interesting deli. If you have not booked a table, be preapred to wait. A visit to the deli will take up the time. Be careful, the butchers counter is addictive.
The main courses ae good and offer a decent choice of meat, fish and well thought out veggie options. The service is competent and friendly. The best cassoulet in a long time.

“Lovely Food and service makes a great family meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We looked on line for good venue for Sunday lunch. Google steered me to Delifonseca & on the advice from reviews we dined. The food, service and drinks were excellent, our waitress Syafiera looked after us so well. Food 6 Adults with some starters, 6 mains and 7 Deserts and drinks & wine came to £150. Fabulous values for truly fabulous food. Great family venue.
