5 Liverpool restaurants that wowed our food writers

1 month ago

We like to organise our lists into themes on Confidential Guides but the only common link between these five Liverpool restaurants is they’re all operating at the top of their game right now.

Each one impressed our food critics over on our sister site Liverpool Confidential recently – and got a great review as a result.

Here on Guides, you’ll find a quick summary of what they offer. Click on the review button (on the right of the listing) and it’ll lead you straight to the more in-depth write-up.

    Restaurant - Italian

    Restauranteur Rosaria Crolla’s family left the mountain village of Picinisco to the south of Rome for Glasgow, setting up fish and chip shops such as Vittorio’s. Her chef-patron husband Maurizio Pellegrini hails from Puglia’s Bisceglie in the far south east of Italy, where fish is on the menu every day.

  • A dish from the festive menu at Nord in Liverpool
    Liverpool City Centre


    Restaurant - Modern British

    Nord is a real asset to Liverpool’s dining scene. Housed in a bit of an unlovely 1960s office block – the former HQ of Littlewoods – the building has had some serious TLC. Now the subtle décor has shades of Mad Men rather than The Fall And Rise of Reginald Perrin with pendant lights, earthy tones and a statement orange bar.

    Panoramic 34 was the UK’s highest restaurant when it opened in 2008, and although others have since taken that title, it still offers an impressive vantage point with a 360-degree view of Liverpool, the Mersey, and beyond to Wales.

    Liverpool City Centre



    The Seaforth restaurant sits in the grand central atrium of the Municipal Hotel on Dale Street. Once the headquarters for Liverpool City Council, the hotel itself is a slice of old world glamour, and Seaforth’s décor and menu of understated excellence plays its part in this.
