3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had an early dinner here and was very disappointed with the main courses. My wife had the seafood pasta which looked dry and was poorly filled with seafood which looked like it was from a frozen bag of mixed seafood, no shells on the cockles or mussels. Half a limp langoustine. I had the lamb which was tasty enough but... More

Great location if you are staying at the Travelodge at Liverpool Docks. We had a late lunch - great selection and great wine list. Beautiful shop with some great meats, cheeses and other produce. We also had breakfast next morning - great coffee. Thanks guys - the staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

We visited here based on a look at their menu and found an even more expansive menu upon arriving. We ordered a couple of small plates and found they were so generous in portion we stopped there. The soup of the day was a chicken coconut curry which was awesome - and no skimping on the kafir lime leaves -... More

Lunch with friends was very pleasant. Our overall scores were 4 for food and service. My pastrami on rye was tasty and the chips were ok. Our waitress was good and we didn't have to wait long for food even though they were busy. I would come here again.

Don't be put off by the menu on the website. In reality the "Specials" board is a delight with a superb range of choices. The food is cooked to order and very well prepared and presented. The staff are helpful, knowledgeable and excellent ambassadors for the establishment. The wine list is minimalistic,BUT, if you can't find anything on it to... More

I've visited Delifonseca on a number of occasions and it's always been excellent, which probably made this lunch time visit more disappointing. The restaurant was quite busy but we were able to secure a table despite not having a reservation. I chose the Thai salad with chicken (something I have with beef quite regularly) so I thought it was a... More

We stayed in the Travelodge next door, this establishment was fantastic, had an evening meal there and went to breakfast each of the next 3 days; staff friendly, food top quality, deli section offering large amount of high end quality foods. I did not find a better place to eat in, in Liverpool
