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.

Really nice place especially the expanded restaurant. We booked for sunday lunchtime and had the chicken and the beef roasts. Delicious and also good to find a restaurant with draft beer.

This was my first time dining at Delifonseca Dockside. We had a wonderful meal from the Christmas menu on Saturday evening. The quality of the food and wine was excellent and service spot on. We particularly appreciated the advice on our choice of wine. I will most definitely visit again and try some dishes from the main menu.

Poor service, staff not paying attention to customers One of are party had been given the black pudding but the vegetarian option had been ordered we tried to gain the attention of a staff member unable to catch there attention I went to speak to a member of staff about the error with the food order. The staff member was apologetic about the mistake and then proceeded to tell another staff member who had originally taken our order about the mistake. In the meantime the black pudding was not removed,the staff member who originally took the order didn't come to the table until the new order was cooked but we where not asked if the vegetarian black pudding was still wanted, so when the vegetarian black pudding arrived the member of our party who ordered the v.b.p had finished there food. It seems better communication within your team is needed.

Really love this place, only recently found it. We've been twice and will be back next year. The staff are great and the manager, in particular is fantastic, such a funny and welcoming man.

Four of us had a superb lunch. I particularly loved the Deli Dip platter and the Thai fish curry. Lovely atmosphere in the new restaurant. Looking forward to coming again.

We were so well looked after, the food was absolutely fabulous & great value! I’m glad we booked for lunch as the restaurant was full. Cannot wait to go back as I liked the sound of just about everything on the menu!

Service was spot on. Choice of meals excellent and the quality of the food was also great. Fruit crumble was just what I needed to finish off on a cold night. Thanks Tom, Candice & staff

Friendly and attentive staff. Decor is lovely here and a big improvement space wise since the new restaurant opened. Breakfast was good quality produce and very tasty. I have visited previously and there were two small sausage supplied but this time only one. I requested cream with my coffee and staff were happy to oblige, so thank you for that. Would highly recommend and we will return to try the lunch/evening menus. We think you are all doing a great job so keep it up!

The new delifonseca dockside space is pleasant and comfortable. My companion ordered a steak, and judged it high quality beef well prepared to her requirements, ie medium rare. Her side portion of chips was a little mean, however. I ordered a special from the board of Thai green curry, and I was disappointed. A major ingredient - edamame beans - was not even mentioned in the description on the board; if they had been, I would not have ordered the dish. Moreover, they were inadequately cooked (which can cause gastric upset). Of the other ingredients, only the salmon tasted as if it had been cooked as part of the curry - the two prawns lurking underneath were tasteless, and two small grilled pieces of haddock merely perched on the rice. Really, I can do it at home so much better. I’d like to end on a positive note: the coffee was, as always, excellent. Overall, however....
