I think u pay more for the surroundings than the actual quality of food been a few times and the food never seems to be consistent I've had nicer starters in a average mainstream Chinese or Thai restaurant and much cheaper too! Overall the food is pleasant but in this case u don't get what you pay for

This is one of the best places in Liverpool when the suns out, nothing better than sitting on the roof terrace with a beer and food. Food is generally very good but I have has the odd bad occasion. Defintely worth a visit though

First of all, this restaurant is located on the 5th floor. And on the way up to the restaurant at the stairway we saw lots of notice pasted "toilets are only for customers" (we didn't use the lift). And the time we reached the restaurant the first thing the greeter greeted (with a serious face and tone) was "what can... More

The restaurant was not that easy to find but once in it was very nicely laid out with super views of the sunset over the Mersey. The decor was modern but very nicely done and the menu was simple offering a two course or three course meal with each course consisting of about half a dozen choices. For my starter... More

what a wonderful welcome we received from the very friendly staff AMAZING views over The Mersey, it was bonfire night with a great firework festival. The food was so tasty great flavours, the drinks were not too expensive, our only quib on the night was the £45 service charge we thought was VERY ENPENSIVE

Rooftop restaurant overlooking the Mersey and Liver building near to the ferry port. Food and service was excellent and had a fab cocktail menu. Be lovely to have cocktails in the outside terrace in the summertime.

Went here on Saturday evening as an attempt to start a hen party off sophisticated, before the ever flowing prosecco and cocktails took all our classiness away. 20 of us were booked in for 5pm, and the experience was definitely worth while. The food can be a little bit on the expensive side, however you are worth a treat every... More
