The original Delifonseca (re-named to avoid confusion with its spin-off), now with vintage cocktail bar, wins praise for its “really good food and interesting choices” from a daily-changing blackboard menu. Change may be afoot, however, with the owner eyeing a vast, Kickstarter-funded expansion of its dockside spin-off (home to a famed market hall), with plans to eventually operate from one base.

FKA Delifonseca – the deli part has now moved both literally and in name to its dockside sibling – this Stanley St spot is “still an old favourite, which manages to be both reliable and interesting”. Upstairs is a booth-lined dining room; downstairs, the former deli is now a vintage-chic cocktail bar offering nibbles and takeaways.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
