survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Often-unusual combinations of ingredients in small dishes” (it’s slightly “hard to define the cooking style”, but it’s somewhat Ottolenghi-esque) creates “a yearning to keep on returning” to this “lively”, “truly unique and impressive” city-centre cocktail bar/tapas café. It has a new Allerton Street spin-off now too, “frequented by ladies-who-lunch”.

Summary

Comparisons with London’s Palomar and Ottolenghi crop up in reports on this “very noisy, crowded and tightly packed” member of the Bold Street scene (“advertised as a cocktail bar, but the food’s the best bit”). All feedback says its “eclectic” sharing plates of “unusual Middle-Eastern-leaning, seasonal food” are a wow! “Not since Paddy and Dave opened the Everyman Theatre Bistro in 1968 has Liverpool seen a more exciting development in its restaurant scene!”

Summary

A “good newcomer on the Bold St scene” serving “Middle Eastern-inspired food and cocktails”; the formula is “mostly small plates, some big ones and lots of imagination” and, whilst they “try a bit too hard”, “most dishes are really good”.

"Fresh innovative food with an emphasis on intense flavours and middle eastern influence, at reasonable prices. Friendly and obliging staff, not at all fazed by our arrival en route for the station with four suitcases. Relaxed but energetic (if that makes sense) ambiance. Excellent value cocktails early in the evening."
