Widnes is not celebrated for fine dining. Having said that, it does have an increasing range of unpretentious restaurants. A brave attempt is also being made to turn the Victoria Square area into a cluster of quality bar, club and restaurant venues.

Aroma Italia in  Widnes Road, Widnes is a pleasant eatery which gained fame for being featured in the Channel 4 TV series "Risking it All"   www.aromaitalia.co.uk

Another is Oliver's Steak House Restaurant at 138-142 Widnes Road in Widnes.

There are the usual franchised fast food outlets: McDonald's, KFC, Domino's and Subway.

In addition there are many local takeaways including indian, chinese, pizzas, kebabs and fish and chips. Les's Fish Restaurant and takeaway in the main street is very popular.
