About Delifonseca Dockside
Martin Cooper has been head chef for Delifonseca since we opened way back in 2006. Whilst now part-time, he is still responsible for many of our signature dishes featured in our Deli classic section of the menu along with our hand-raised pies, mutton curries and kicking hummous! Even before his tenure with us, Martin was already a bit of a local culinary legend for those of a certain generation having been the chef proprietor of the Armadillo restaurant in the Cavern Quarter through the 80’s and 90’s.
The rest of the dishes are created by Carl Pritt our sous chef and our new head chef Gareth Penn who has come to us from the south east via London and Suffolk where he’s honed his skills.
The ample parking at Dockside and its position only a mile from the centre of the city going south on the riverside commuter route (Sefton St A5036) attract a diverse crowd. Regulars range from foodies to families, local workers & residents to lunching business suits.
Our restaurant has a great reputation for good friendly service. Manager Tom Ford and his trusty lieutenants Ceri-anne, Mandie & Karen have a reputation for going the extra mile. As a family friendly venue, we have put together a children’s menu containing our classic dishes; smaller portions of blackboard dishes may be also available.
Excellent and Tom is a star!
Great service as usual and always welcoming. Lovely food, and relaxing atmosphere.
Service And Food first class as usual.
Brilliant to see that Delifonseca is as good as ever, imaginative and well cooked food (and plenty of it). Nice safe atmosphere, and great , friendly and efficient service. My favorite place to eat in the whole North West
Inventive menu, fantastic quality food and lovely service. Really appreciated that you found us a small bar of chocolate from Deli when we couldn’t fit in a whole dessert!
We always enjoy meals at Delifonseca and have missed you during lockdown. Had a lovely lunch yesterday, the sirloin steak was some of the best we'd tasted! Look forward to seeing you again soon

We went for birthday breakfast and all Covid safety measures in place made our visit really relaxed. We have never had a bad experience whenever we visit, staff are always attentive but not intrusive.
