Highly enjoyable evening spent here for my birthday with my partner. Fantastic fresh lobster and scallops and a very warm welcome and service from Kostas throughout. Very reasonable prices for the location and quality of food. Will definitely be back.

Had a meal here with my wife and two teenage kids. Everyone loved it. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff and really fresh, tasty seafood dishes. We ate as we watched the sunset on the river. Perfect!

At Cargo we serve the best fish and seafood you’ll find in Liverpool – all fresh, every morning, from these shores and beyond. The great news is the Cargo ship is once again being steered by its original skipper, highly acclaimed executive chef Skevos Paraskeva who has worked in restaurants across Europe and has brought his exceptional skills to our waterfront restaurant, each day delivering quality and presentation second to none. We enjoy breathtaking views across the River Mersey and beautiful sunsets that change with the seasons. Our bar/cocktail lounge area is a friendly, relaxing place while the adjacent public and private dining areas are designed to provide an unparalleled, intimate eating and drinking experience. There is on-site free car parking and our own outside seating area. Oh, and did we mention that we’d love to cater for your private parties and celebrations?
