Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely to sit outside in the shade in this heat. Under whelmed by the food. Prawn salad was tasteless, halumi salad was just lettuce and fried cheese. Was expecting more as had read the rave reviews.

Lovely food, friendly staff, I'll definitely come again! Three adults and three kids, some shared, some didn't. All of the food except a little lettuce got eaten and everyone was pleased!

Where do we start. When people watching in this superb place you can see the Boss and his wife have respect for there staff and ALL of the staff are happy. The setting is just off the main road and this restaurant is bright fresh...and clean looking. The roof slides back so you feel your outside but in comfortable surrounding. There is a warm welcome and your taken to a booth which gave us plenty of room. The menu can be seen online ( which is always a plus) it is a large varied menu and covers all tastes. The waitress who served us Kirsty was chatty helpful and very happy ( a credit to her boss) We chose king prawns in cream and garlic mushrooms as our starters. Tasty, well presented and colourful care had been taken to make it look special . Main course my wife had lasagna which was homemade and amazing. I had mixed seafood risotto which I can tell you was the best I’ve ever had . More fresh seafood than risotto. Amazing. We had mentioned to Kirsty in passing it was our birthdays ( which it was) and she sent her boss to chat to us. We talked about everything and he mentioned the stars and footballers who use the restaurant . Very interesting guy. We asked for the bill which was £77 with two pinks and two pink gin and tonics. Worth every penny. The bill seemed to be taking some time and I was just about to ask again when a bell rang loud and the boss Kam stopped the whole restaurant. He introduced us to the whole restaurant by name and asked the whole restaurant to sing happy birthday , which they did. Then a superb desert with our names came out with our names on and candles . What an amazing meal and night. Thank youMore

Whilst on a city break in Liverpool with my family we had a beautiful meal here. Everything about it was exceptional, from the attentive waiting staff to the amazing quality of the food and beautiful cocktails. Our children, aged 6, 10 and 14 loved it...to and our waitress, Kirsty made them feel very welcome with her friendly manner. We had pizza's, crab and lobster linguine, child's penne bolognaise and spaghetti carbonara (our daughter said it was the best carbonara she'd ever tasted!) Would definitely recommend and will most definitely be back.More

First night of a short beak to Liverpool with my son. Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, rated no. 1 of places to eat so thought we must try it & it did not disappoint! Bus ride out of centre but easy to find, beautifully...designed restaurant with open top roof and lovely relaxed atmosphere, real holiday feel, staff friendly and welcoming & food delicious. We had the calamari & bruschetta, king prawn linguine & carbonara, baklava & chocolate ice cream….all super yummy 😋More

On her final evening in Liverpool we decided to try this restaurant based on the fantastic reviews and I am glad to say it lived up to expectations. The staff are very friendly and attentive plus serve up a family atmosphere. The food was fantastic....I ordered the crab and lobster ravioli while my friend went for a margherita pizza . The ravioli was cooked to perfection and full of flavour with perfect seasoning. The pizza was light with great helpings of cheese and sauce . For desserts we went for chocolate souffle and fudge cake . Both of them were moist and the chocolate used was decadent. The ice cream was a perfect addition. If you are near Sefton park then definitely go to this place. You will love it .More
