Hospitality was second to none from the moment we walked through the door.
We arrived early for our booking but was shown our table straight away. There was an offer on for 50% off food which we had booked, but honestly we would visit again next time we’re in the city regardless of any offers.
We had window seats and it was nice to watch the world go by. All staff were very helpful and friendly, with one even fetching a drink on the house as we were there for a landmark birthday.

All round we had a excellent experience. Friendly staff, great food and pleasant environment. I thought £4.95 for a pint of Heineken was a bit steep mind you.

Great place to eat! Everything was amazing even got drinks for free because they came in 10min after we ordered which I wouldn't even consider late if they didn't bring it up themselves, shows how much they care about customer service, great folks! Did NOT constantly interrupt the meal like in some other restaurants in town, came up when we cut the burger in half to ask if its ok as it was a big too big to bite which is also not a complaint :) great quality and ingredients, Skewers with fillet steake, flame grilled easily best thing on the menu! I would season the burgers a bit more but again thats my preference. The staff kept interactions short and sweet, just the right amount. Overall 10/10 great venue, even though it's on busy Mathew street on new years eve, the prices were great value for money and quality also you dont hear the noise and they accepted our request for a quiet table without hesitation. Once again great staff, keeps a close eye on your experience but doesn't interrupt you during a meal which was great as well. Go there ASAP :)

Era la segunda vez que acudía a este restaurante para probar el guiso de carne típico de la ciudad de LIVERPOOL y claro está que volvió a sorprenderme! Es más hemos comido en este restaurante también el domingo una hamburguesa buenísima.
No es sólo la comida!!! El trato al cliente es muy bueno!

Good food and served quick from the kitchen, only down side was the wait to order both food and drinks... plus no table check?!? More stars would have been given for these two details... overall still very much worth a visit and stumbling distance from The Cavern

Excellent food, service was exceptional , very good value for money.
A little bit of a wait for food but there was a large party of 60 guests and understandably we had to wait awhile for food.
Completely opposite The Cavern in Liverpool

Food, Service and cocktails were good. It lacked a bit of atmosphere, compared to what was going on outside, but overall good and I would recommend as it is in a prefect location for Cavern club etc.

We had a fantastic experience at this restaurant so much so that we can honestly say it has been the best experience we have had eating out. The food was amazing, well cooked and presented. The option of cocktails with the meal was a pleasure. One of our sons has issues with food and the restaurant staff bent over backwards to accommodate his needs which is something many restaurants find tiring and therefore do not make an effort. We have been recommending this restaurant to all our friends and family. When we return to Liverpool this will be our first stop for a meal.

Loved the feel of the restaurant, we sat upstairs which was possibly a bit quieter, staff very friendly and helpful, food was lovely, thought it strange the steaks only came with salad, remember to add a side of fries.

It was ok - however we probably wouldn't return considering there are plenty other options within Liverpool. The service however was brilliant and the manager (or supervisor I am not sure) was particularly helpful.

Staff went out of the way to ensure experience was top notch, food came in great time and was cooked as specified. Wait staff even gave recommendations for sauces to accompany dishes, honestly couldn’t of asked for more, best experience in a while, would recommend.
