It was quiet, so the atmosphere wasn’t great, but the food was absolutely fantastic.

Food was very good but the service was spotty at best. Numerous finished plates were left on our table for over 30 minutes crowding the table. There were only 2 servers and when the restaurant got busy the surface level dropped significantly.

The above ratings do not fully reflect how mind blown I was by the experience and haven't shut up about it all weekend. Definitely returning. Lots.

The meal was delicious! Would be helpful to have some signage on the main street - as someone who had never been there before, I walked by it a few times before I figured out that I was supposed to walk into the compound to find your restaurant.

I was a bit underwhelmed. The parfait was melted and runny. The brown shrimp salad had very little shrimp in comparison to cabbage. I fact o could t taste the shrimp. Not a good ratio. Wine was good though

We were highly impressed with our meal, we shared 4 plates each of which were delicious and really good value. I'm vegan and the chefs catered for me wonderfully. Definitely recommend!

Food was delicious, full of flavour. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately the drinks menu was limited, they offered gins/ cocktails etc however none of these were available. Despite this, we would definitely visit again.

interesting place. a lovely restaurant in a courtyard, behind Hardman street. food-wise, i'm really in two minds. what they do well, they do very well. amongst my dishes, the mussels popcorn, grilled sweetcorn, sardines, lemon sole and panna cotta were excellent. others dishes, not so much. the cabbage and shrimp, the dressing far too astringent. the shrimps totally overpowered. the cheese scone, doughy in the middle, seemingly undercooked and the cheese used, too strong, far from subtle. one bugbear was how the meal was served. dishes are presented as they're cooked, they do tell you this will be the case, it just made for a rather incoherent meal. eating several plates of veg, then have the fish arrive unaccompanied. another is the price, it's certainly not cheap. partly our fault though, we ordered wine by the glass, rookie mistake. gripes aside, we did have a really good night. would I go again, I might. they apparently change the menu regularly, so it depends what's on. not the thoughts of all our party though, particularly those who felt the need to go across the street to the kebab shop right afterwards.

Amazing friendly staff. Terrible espresso martinis but that was dealt with well. Forgot to take the deposit I'd paid off the bill, not so great! Don't ask for a deposit unless you have a system to make sure you take it off!!!! Food was inventive and good

The food was amazing, the staff were sweetness itself, but (and its quite a big but) one my dishes was forgotten. It was only after I saw several of the belly porks going out to diners who'd arrived after us that I mentioned it to one of the waiting staff. I was quickly given mine (and was not charged for it on the bill), but my vegetarian girlfriend had to witness me tucking in Henry VIII-style long after our meal was apparently over. I like the sharing concept and the idea that dishes arrive when they are ready, but you really need to be on your game to ensure that the diner's meal flows in the way it should. Having said all that, if I am ever back in Liverpool I'll be back as in all other ways I loved the place
