Here at TablePouncer, we've tried and tested the best restaurants in Liverpool, from the upmarket 'spend-half-your-salary-and-let-your-children-starve' type of joints to much more affordable options. So if you're struggling with choosing a place to eat, we've rounded up our favourite restaurants in Liverpool to help you make the right decision.
This is the ultimate lads' bar: it’s the best of German everything - food, beer and entertainment. And by entertainment, we mean live footie on the big screen (what more could a man want?).
Alongside a fantastic selection of beers – served in traditional steins, may we add? - the food on offer is comfort fodder at its best: think tasty sausages, pretzel sandwiches and juicy burgers, all of which will make you want to scream: “Dieses Essen ist fantastisch”.
The Bierkeller, 8 Thomas Steers Way, Liverpool L1 8LW, England
If you’re a fan of fine dining, this is the place for you. The décor is clean, bright and vibrant while the food is fresh and well-cooked (although portions are a bit on the small side).
We were particularly impressed by the service, with staff constantly checking up on us and offering to fetch us more refreshments. Well worth a visit.
Marco Pierre White's Steakhouse, 10 Chapel Street, Hotel Indigo Liverpool, L3 9AG
Fazenda – otherwise known as “meat heaven” – has taken Liverpool by storm thanks to a winning formula of meat, more meat and some tasty side dishes (the fries were our personal favourite). Diners are given a card upon entry that’s green on one side and red on the other. Flip it over to green and the waiters will begin carving slices of meat onto your plate (the chicken, ribs and steak come highly recommended). Switch it to red and you’re waving the white flag.
Fazenda Rodizio Bar and Grill, Horton House, Exchange Flags, Liverpool, L2 3YL
As any good chef knows the best way to capture that all-important authentic Italian taste is to cook food in the traditional way. In Olive's case, that means using a stone oven - and it's evident in the taste. Their pizzas are bursting with flavour and we particularly recommend the crispy-on-the-outside and soft-on-the-inside pasta bakes.
Olive Restaurant and Bar 25-27 Castle Street, Liverpool L2 4TA
As frequent visitors to Spanish restaurants, we like to consider ourselves bona fide experts when it comes to tapas. Lunya is a rather impressive joint, not only because the service was second to none but also because their imagination goes far beyond other Spanish eateries we’ve come across (their Spanish eggs were a particular highlight). The location is great, too, in Liverpool One, which is a short walk from Lime St station.
Lunya, 18-20 College Lane, Liverpool L1 3DS
This recently-refurbished haunt is located in one of Liverpool’s top hotels, the Crowne Plaza. The menu is small and simple (we opted for the sea bass, which was fresh and flavoursome) and the double-cooked chips were spot on. Last but not least, they also have a room service menu so you can opt for dinner in bed if you’re fortunate enough to be staying in the hotel.
Plaza Brasserie at Crowne Plaza, St. Nicholas Place, Crowne Plaza Liverpool City Centre, L3 1QW
There’s a lot we can say about this restaurant but we’re going to skip to the best bit – the dessert menu. If you have a sweet tooth and couldn’t give two hoots about digesting a whole lot of calories, you’ll love the selection on offer here which includes burnt English vanilla custard with lavender shortbread and sticky toffee pudding (our personal favourite). If you fancy a tipple with your dish we recommend the Muscat Beaume de Venise, Pierre Perrin, a welcoming white wine that's easy on the taste buds.
Puschka, 16 Rodney Street, Liverpool L1 2TE
If you have someone special to impress, the Living Room is the place to do it. Cosy, romantic and full of character, this restaurant offers plenty of choice, from steaks and fish dishes to fried sides such as beer battered onion rings (we had two!). Complimenting the menu is service with a smile and a varied list of cocktails. Heaven.
The Living Room, 15 Victoria Street, Liverpool L2 5QS
Set inside the magnificent conversion of the former St. Peter's Catholic Church, this Cuban-inspired restaurant is special for a number of reasons: a) the food is amazing, b) the décor and setting create an atmosphere that’s unmatched, and c) the food is amazing (so good we feel the need to mention it twice). Our only criticism is the amount of choice on the menu: you’ll struggle to make a decision, but whatever one you make, it’s sure to be delicious.
Alma de Cuba, Seel Street, St Peter's Church, Liverpool L1 4BH
Fancy a picturesque view with your meal? This quality Italian, British and European-inspired restaurant boasts views of the Sefton Park and is swimming in light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows.
It’s based in the Blenheim Lakeside Hotel – and the food is piping hot, delicious and well presented. What more could you want?
Michelangelo’s 37 Aigburth Drive, Sefton Park, Liverpool L17 4JE
