“Nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Went Saturday evening with my son for a meal. Really nice food, very busy. Service was good earlier on in the evening but as it got a bit later on in the evening had problems attracting the attention of the staff for more drinks & the bill. Desserts looked fab but I was full after my main meal so I did not partake although very tempted. My son had the cheesecake which he said was delicious!

“quite good but choose carefully otherwise hugely expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

average/quite good food but expensive and the restaurant is very hyped. I have eaten far better and much more cheaply in many other places in Liverpool and in the South. The value for money is not there.
Service needs to be improved. The customer needs to feel "special". This does not happen.

“Rubbish- very unwelcoming”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Came here in sat afternoon, just for a coffee and cake with two friends. Empty restaurant, but apparently restaurant fully booked! Really?? Waiter was completely illogical. They had no customers! 3 smart professional people turned away for no good reason. I can't be bothered with pretentious stupid restaurants like this. Spend my money elsewhere.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

I came here for lunch with my fiance on a Sunday.
This is a very nice place to eat in Liverpool, unfortunately it is in what can only be described as a warehouse and quite a long way outside the town centre which I imagine is why there are not many trip advisor reviews on it.

Inside the building is very nicely decorated, the staff are all excellent and the food is also excellent. They have a good range of drinks including some excellent local beers.
Bolted onto the restaurant is a large shop where you can buy lots of nice food (it does not feel,however, like some sort of supermarket cafe, the restaurant is very much a separate area and entity)
You get free parking as well!

If you are passing or even if you're not I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant!
