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.
Everyone is so friendly. The food is amazing both when you can actually go but also the takeaway dinners. The french themed meal last weekend was amazing or should I say tres bien! Always a great atmosphere.
Lovely last meal before lockdown 2.0. Staff were friendly, upbeat and very attentive considering the impending closing. Food was tasty with lovely big portions, and the restaurant was very clean ad spaced out.
Brilliant- relaxed and friendly service, great food and wine, Tom, Karen and the team made me feel very much at home especially as I was eating on my own 😊 Thank you
Excellent food and service.
Superb food, great staff, wonderful atmosphere. Limited but very good wine list. I would highly recommend the restaurant at Delifonseca and hopefully I’ll be back on 2nd December.
Once again a fabulous meal, a birthday one this time. Possibly the only negative about it was that the chips no longer resemble or taste like chips as they are getting so big - more like roast potatoes & let’s face it chips are chips., the haddock was a beautiful piece of fish and cooked just right. Great staff, well prepared for Covid-19 safety. Would highly recommend
Food amazing staff awesome a great evening we will see you all soon take care
Excellent as ever. Hope to be back in four weeks ! Alan
Amazing quality food!
A good and varied menu with dishes really enjoyable each time we have visited. Friendly staff and attractive environment. Can’t really ask for more.
Brilliant as always. Fish and chips so good. Wishing you all the best during lockdown and will support the deli.
Food great, service spot on, very comfortable seats, nice restaurant decor and ambiance. We will be booking again soon.
Superb as always Thankyou see you all later this afternoon 👍
Great food and service
Always lovely! Our local restaurant.
Always been a fan of Deli Fonseca but my meal yesterday was very special celebrating my birthday before lockdown again. Love this restaurant and the attached store.
Lovely brunch of avocado and poached eggs (cooked to perfection) on sourdough bread with the best halloumi I have ever had. Lots of space between tables, felt totally safe and comfortable. Service was excellent - would highly recommend and will be back soon.
I love delifonseca
As ever, outstanding!
Great food great service as always I would recommend you go support our local restaurants
Great Sunday roast, and equally great service.
Best roast dinner in Liverpool.
Thanks for a nice lunch and speaking to Tom reassured us that you will do OK despite hard times ahead
All Covid restrictions in place.
We came in on Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed, the food was delicious and the service was excellent as always. We had a lovely evening. Thank you x
