A great find! From the moment I sent an email to enquire about the venue right through to the end of the party the owner and staff were wonderful. They were helpful, flexible and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were especially helpful as I booked everything from Spain! The buffet was excellent and the venue... More

Came here for afternoon tea with a large enough group of friends (12 of us) for them to open the restaurant especially. As a bit of a fan of afternoon tea I was really looking forward to this and convinced the rest of the group that £20 each would be well worth it - I owe them all an apology.... More

Definitely a "hidden gem". My wife and I were surprised that Elude had existed for 5 years without our knowledge. It's easy to miss from the outside but now we have found will be taking friends and family. Food was good and above average, service was attentive. Above all, surroundings were comfortable and we could talk easily at our table... More

From the website, the place looked really plush and opulent. The taxi driver actually missed the road, it being so narrow and insignificant. On arrival we were greeted pleasantly and invited to sit at a table to peruse the menu and have a drink. The decor appeared to be aiming for gentleman's club, but the result is a bit brothel-like....

Well I proposed to my girlfriend here and when I emailed the manager, they made sure they could help in every way, to the way the table looked to the music that was playing. I couldn't of asked for anything more ad would defiantly recommend this place to anyone, especially for a romantic meal.

Fantastic evening, greeted again with a smile from the wonderful staff, enjoyed pre-dinner wine in the bar area, seabass was amazing, very romantic surroundings with all the lovely lit candles, would highly recommend this restaurant & most certainly will be booking again very soon.

This intimate and sophisticated restaurant located in Liverpool's bustling Docklands district has fast become a favourite amongst discerning diners. The candlelit interior at Elude Bar and Restaurant is popular for dates and special occasions, and its convenient city centre location attracts locals and tourists alike. The freshly prepared modern European menu features classic dishes such as fresh Highland smoked salmon marinated with lime, capers and black peppercorns; the fillet of British beef served with bubble and squeak, infused with saffron and served with wild mushrooms and parmesan chips; and the whole oven-baked rainbow trout stuffed with fresh whole prawns and herbs and served with caramelised limes. Elude's chic and cosy bar is ideal for pre/post dinner drinks.
