Delifonseca Dockside and sister restaurant Fonseca's are famed for their blackboard menu of ever-changing dishes making the most of fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Dining is a real celebration in seasonal eating. The blackboard consists of 12-14 main meals with new dishes appearing each day which means there’s something fresh to discover every time.
Martin Cooper, who has been head chef since the business opened 10 years ago and current head chef Chris La Placa share Candice’s philosophy which is showcased on a menu reflecting what’s good to eat, right now. Diners will find a great choice of modern takes on traditional British favourites and global dishes. All made with the best of ingredients most of which can be purchased in the deli, whether they’re popping in for breakfast, lunch or a three-course evening meal.

Review by Manchester Confidential's Angie Sammons
15/20
Lancashire hotpot is soothing food at its best; in this version, dices of lamb, stewed leek and carrot hide under a hat of crispy, golden potato. There is the right amount of stock: Too much and it would swim, too little and it would dry the meat which has endured a long and slow braise to take on all the flavours of the vegetables. Puddings, and the hot chocolate brownie is an excellent sliver of light sponge loveliness, with a deep cocoa content. Custard, cream or ice cream? I chose the latter which was the perfect foil.

We were celebrating a Golden Wedding and our waiter Fran and a young female waitress who's name we didn't get, were extremely helpful. They were also very good humoured and all of us (8) had a lovely evening.

Always enjoy my meals at Delifonseca. Tom and the rest of the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant has a good selection of meals both in the daily menu and blackboard specials. Can’t fault it at all.

We came for breakfast at Delifonseca two days running for a FrenDo (friends not just hens!). We were a large group 20+ both days. Tom and his team were AMAZING, helping plan our menu beforehand and then on the day were just so patient and helpful. The food was great - as it always is. It was just a perfect start to the day. Thank you, we shall definitely see you soon!

I have left a good review on TA. My only negative comment is that the restaurant was too cool.

I’ve been here many times. The food is always delicious and the specials change daily, but with a terrific selection of staples on the menu. The team are wonderful, knowledgeable, funny and really efficient. I also took advantage of the deli and bought some beautiful cheeses and meat from the butcher. Just an excellent place to visit. Thank you

Been going to this deli since I moved to Liverpool 6 years ago. It’s fantastic - never disappointed me. If I may, There’s only one thing missing: freshly squeezed orange juice!
