About Delifonseca Dockside

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 shares 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.

I had the cod and prawns, it was absolutely delicious. The waitress who took care of us was friendly and efficient. Very enjoyable visit, thank you.

One of our group needed wheelchair access which I stated when making the booking. We knew that Delifonseca is convenient for parking and there are no steps to negotiate. However, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and had reserved a suitably located table. Thank you.

Inventive menu that equally accommodates vegetarians, carnivores, pescatarians and all ages. Fantastic considerate service. A jewel in Liverpool's restaurant scene.

Had a team lunch and have been several times and it has always been nice. Unfortunately on this occasion a colleagues Croque-monsieur had spots on mould on the bread. This was rectified pretty quickly and deducted from the bill but it did put us all off a little.

I just found your service level not up to your usual standard. It was much slower, with not much structure, and put me on edge. I asked for a G and T, which never came, and didn’t want to chase again as i’d had to chase other courses. A lot of staff hanging around with no direction. A really disappointing lunch because of it.
