Gusto Liverpool

101 user reviews 5

Gusto has become something of a household name in Britain. With a range of Italian dishes, spanning across the entire peninsula and featuring the freshest Mediterranean ingredients, it's honest, welcoming and sure to please every diet.

Lu Ban

5 user reviews 5

Bringing a taste of China to Cains Brewery Village, Lu Ban is all about xiao panzi (or small plate dining). Expect seafood, meat, and vegetable dishes paired with wines and cocktails. There's even private dining and a chef's table experience.

Helmed by the Million Pound Menu winners Jamie Duffield, Dave Bone and Anthony Power, Pilgrim is the Duke Street restaurant cooking up a taste of Spain's northern coastline. Expect modern tastes in a contemporary setting.

A reasonably new addition to Liverpool's dining scene, Madre has already made an impact with its take on Mexican street food in an exposed brick arch. Tuck into the likes of tacos, queso fundido and Highland steak and chips - great when washed down with one of their variations on the classic margarita.

From swinging Baton Rouge to the weightless streets of Vancouver, Moose & Moonshines is a colourful eatery inspired by all things North American. Decorated with chesterfield sofas, moose heads and traditional dining tables, the menu, as you'd expect, is full of hearty burgers, mustard topped hotdogs and lumberjack breakfasts.

Hearty British dishes at their best, PanAm is a popular restaurant in Liverpool's Albert Dock. With a menu bursting with vibrant flavours and belly-warming grub, expect to find gourmet burgers, slathered in sauce and served alongside freshly prepared sides and finely cooked sirloin steaks.

Salt House Tapas is a Spanish inspired eatery based on Liverpool's elegant Hanover Street, serving a smorgasbord of both traditional and contemporary recipes from seared fillet steak with crisp fried potato croquette, spinach and peppercorn sauce to fresh scallops and finely salted-cured ham.

Housed in the heart of the city, Koukash is a suave hotel restaurant. Whether you're carving into one of their exquisite roast dinners, slicing through their crumbling catch of the day or warming yourself with one of their spiced soups, you won't be disappointed by this Sir Thomas Street spot.
