Can't believe someone recommended Zorba's.

Worst place I've ever had Greek food anywhere in the world.
Right which bastards eaten me Tapas?

Went to FSK on the weekend..still as good as ever. Buffalo wings, Double french onion burger, and Estrella on draft is all I want in life. Stunk of onions and garlic for like 2 days but worth it.

There is nobody that will be able to convince me there is a better place to eat out in town than FSK. It is my favourite place to eat out in town bar none.

Best wings in town. Best burger in town by a mile. Best atmosphere. Best beer garden.

FSK is good, I always enjoy it. There's some specialist places including Sanskruti, Etsu and Six by Nico that I'd plump for ahead, some others too I'm likely forgetting but it never disappoints.

Puffin Rooms is amazing, but not sure what it's like late afternoon. Abditory is decent too off Castle St, as is Liverpool Gin Distillery (not just for gin). There's also Ex-directory and Berry & Rye which are "secret" bars.

Thanks for all the posts; excellent read.. Bringing the family over soon. Bit of a small special occassion; and looking for a place. I normally do italian club, il forno, monro, san carlo, fsk, mowgli  - and enjoying all of them. Looking for a new place; with good food/service; can spend a bit but not too pretentious/small portions and too delicate; probably won't appreciate that (our fault). cheers

Cucina Di Vincenzo's is really nice and a good atmosphere (best Arancini I've ever had), not exactly central though, it's more the other side of Queen's Drive, on the way out to Gateacre, taxi would be 15 - 20 minutes from town though.

In town itself, it's becoming a joke how much it's mentioned in here but Sanskruti is a great Indian (only vegetarian and vegan if that puts you off for any reason) and Etsu is great if you like Japanese food, huge portions too. Neither are pretentious or intimidating in any way whatsoever, both pretty laid back dining atmosphere. Greek Taverna is always good bang for your buck, it sounds to me like you want to be avoiding places like The Art School and Roski, which undoubtedly do excellent food but there can be an air of pretension to them, they're more 'fine dining' establishments. Six by Nico might not fit the bill given it's a taster menu but we came out full and not unhappy with the portions. More expensive than the others mentioned though.

Berringtons last night. Excellent.

Pork cheeks and Morcilla / Cheese Croquettes.

Ribeye / Sea Bass.

Cheese board / Some chocolate ball thingy.

All very, very good. The starters were my highlight even though the steak was as good as Ive had in a long time. Highly recommended.

Went to Vietnom last night, really good. Like Livbes, the highlight was the starters (mains were delicious as well). First time having a bao bun and was super tasty. Only other Vietnamese restaurant we've been to in Liverpool is Pho on Bold street and would recommend Vietnom over it. Six of us went and we all had something different and everyone was super happy for both the meat and the veggie options.

Six by Nico getting 0 out of 5 from the council for food hygiene.

Shocking that a so called mid-range restaurant are so lax with food hygiene.

Fucking hell really? That's dreadful. My Ma's a Civil Servant and a few years back did a secondment with the Food Standards Agency and tagged along to some restaurant inspections - her takeaway from it is that you'd be surprised how filthy you can be and still get a 2 star rating, so 0 must be horrendous. She said 4 is the minimum she'd eat at now.

Having said that, you can be given a 0 just for having filled in the paperwork incorrectly or having deviated from the initial layout you advised upon installation of the kitchen, so maybe it's that and Six isn't a festering shithole. Certainly hope not, we had a cracking meal there not a month ago.

My guess is the paperwork around a changing menu. It is piss easy to get a 5 star food hygiene rating when your menu is exactly the same. Paperwork, temperature checks, chicken kept away from other meats, training etc is all standardised and your kitchen is designed around that.

If you are constantly changing your menu (like six by neco do) then all the standardisation goes out the window. Just takes one piece of chicken to be found in a fridge containing fish or cooked meat to send your score plummeting

I doubt this will be a horror story like bugs/rodent infestation. They didn't feel the need to close the place

Try The Monro.

So we went to Monro this Sunday and had a really tasty Sunday lunch. All the vegetables were cooked well, the meat tasty and there was a good amount of food and gravy. The service was, excellent which given we ate early evening was impressive.

As a side, at the table next to us were three younger people, who hadn't booked and who ordered three roasts and three soft drinks. They tucked in and made comments about it being the best lamb shank they had had and how good it all was. Then, at the end of the meal they carefully piled all their remaining food onto one plate and tidied it up, making it look like it was untouched. They had ensured they had left enough of everything to complete the picture.

They then complained that one of them didn't touch the food as it wasn't very good and requested it off the bill.

After the manager intervened and some to-ing and fro-ing the manager reluctantly agreed to remove one meal from the bill.

The three paid in cash and left.

Is this opportunism or general shithousery? To my mind it's definitely the latter.  :butt

That's beyond mingebaggery and into the realms of straight up theft. I don't understand how any normal, decent minded person could go to a restaurant, enjoy the food and then proceed to do that to the people who served you a nice meal.

Would have called them out in front of the manager me.

Zorbas last night for first time in ages.

Still best Greek food around by a mile. That Hummus he makes in there is bloody sublime.

Lovely to see the place bursting at the seems and full of life again. Last time I went in there to was to pick up a takeaway I ordered at New Year, to help them out when soft arse Boris moved the goalposts last minute again. That time it was in darkness and deserted.

Made up it survived lockdown and is still here nearly 50 years after it opened.

I just wanted to say thanks for this. This thread's really good for me because I don't live locally any more, but get back every now and then, so this thread's my go to.
I was out with a client a few weeks back and when we walked past, he spotted it and wanted to try it. Before committing I had a quick scan of this thread and saw your post as I was pretty sure I'd seen the odd good comment.
It wasn't hugely busy as it was early on in the week, but they clearly have a good crowd of regulars. Everything we had was bang on, apart from the Greek salad, but that was personal preference more than anything.

The waitress was telling us about how long it's been open and I think that places like this need to be cherished. We don't have enough restaurants that are seen as institutions in this country.

Glad to help mate and glad you enjoyed it.

It’s what this threads all about - had loads of good info from here and tried many great places myself that I wouldn’t have gone to otherwise.

Another nice evening on Saturday at The Butchers Café and bar on Booker Avenue.

Mainly a drinking spot, but does a selection of small plates/sharing platters.

Some nice ale on draft, the food is really good, and its a very pleasant and civilised place to have a bevy and a chat with your mates, whilst eating some nice food.

Its a very small place, and it shuts at half ten promptly due to some strict licensing conditions [its right in the middle of a residential area]. We were there for well over 5 hours on Saturday, casually drinking our way through the beer list, and grazing our way through a lot of the menu.

Waitress service at the table, so you don't even have to get off your arse to get served.

Nice relaxed vibe, with good background music played at a reasonable sound level.

£50 a head including a generous tip for the staff, who are great. Very good value for the amount of food and drink we had.

Boss place.

Some nice ale on draft, the food is really good, and its a very pleasant and civilised place to have a bevy and a chat with your mates, whilst eating some nice food.

Its a very small place, and it shuts at half ten promptly due to some strict licensing conditions [its right in the middle of a residential area]. We were there for well over 5 hours on Saturday, casually drinking our way through the beer list, and grazing our way through a lot of the menu.

Waitress service at the table, so you don't even have to get off your arse to get served.

Nice relaxed vibe, with good background music played at a reasonable sound level.

£50 a head including a generous tip for the staff, who are great. Very good value for the amount of food and drink we had.

Boss place.

Back in the 60s one of my mates was a butcher's boy there, even had the bike with wicker basket to make deliveries to Mather Avenue and around Caldies.

The Amakura cafe on the other side of Brodie Avenue is a good place for a sandwich and a nice cup of tea and a piece of cake.
