A go-to place for a good English breakfast or burger. Good selection of beer at a good price, too. It's always the same pub, but the details vary from city to city. As Peter said, the starting point is always the same, but the experience may vary. One thing I liked about this palce is that there is always a table available. The restaurant is usually in the center and is a good choice if there's nothing else available.
The Alma de Cuba bar is a bit lost amid the streets of Liverpool and is one of those places you stumble upon only when you're out exploring. In 2008, it was awarded the best restaurant bar in Britain. The truth is that we stumbled upon it quite by chance, walking from the shopping area to the cathedrals. It's surrounded by a lot of old houses and streets which show off the history of the city. It's a recommended place for dinner, a snack, or simply to have a drink in a very special building which was once the Catholic Church of St. Peter.
You can't go to Britain and not try "fish and chips". This is a traditional fast food place and, of course, could not be less quintessentially Liverpool. In every city, there are tones of places where you can have fish and chips, and they're usually good. The fish is usually great and the chips are usually drizzled with salt and vinegar, a wonderful combo (once you overcome the shock that unexpected vinegar has on the palate). We stopped at a restaurant run by a Turkish guys who also sold kebabs. You can eat well and for cheap, so it is highly recommendable.
Excellent place. Cozy and perfect after a long walk though Liverpool. It's near the Anglican Cathedral and the service is excellent. The cafe is on the third floor of a very colorful building and you feel like you're visiting a friend's house.
The Slug and Lettuce in Liverpool besides being a restaurant is also where you can dance the night away on the floor below. It's very centrally located, a few steps from the Cavern Club, the harbor area, the Beatles museum and Queen's Square. The restaurant (really a restaurant chain) is pretty good and is a typical English restaurant-pub. Apart from the ever-present beers, you can also have a coffee, tea or a sweet at a table, or eat a hamburger etc. - though they also have a small selection of food, even eastern Mediterranean food! The site is not expensive, it's quite nice. It seems to me more familiar and less "prefabricated" like Burger King or McDonald's. I would definitely recommend it. They also tend to have interesting deals, such as Happy Mondays (Every Monday 50% discount on food). But if I had to highlight something on this site, it would be what is below, in the basement. Every Monday (if nothing has changed since I was there, of course) they give free salsa lessons at 22.00. If you like Latin rhythms you can't miss it! I had a super good time and the atmosphere is great! I only went on Monday but I guess you can also dance the other nights. There were also salsa classes for more advanced levels, and I think the prices are not too high. Finally, if you have the chance, then go one night for a dance!
For lovers of spicy Indian food, the Samrat is a good place to eat in the center of Liverpool. The service is acceptable and there is a wide variety of delicious dishes. What's nice is that the spices are used to enhance the flavor of the food, not hide it as so often happens. It felt like we were back in India! In addition, the décor is lovely. It's a good place to get transported out of Liverpool for an hour or two.
This was the first place we ate when we arrived in Liverpool. Albert Dock is located a 3 minute walk from the bus station next to the One shopping center is in a beautiful building built in 1870. We ordered a fillet steak which was served on sliced bread. It was the first time I ate a steak sandwich that thick, but it was delicious. They played groups like Snow Patrol over the PA. The waitress passed by after a few minutes and asked if everything was ok. The pints are exceptionally cold and delicious. We started the trip off right with a full stomach!!.
We went to Monro because we were looking for an authentic English restaurant. The decor is typical of English pubs and the food was delicious! They mix a lot of ingredients from all over (sausage with sweet potatoes and fish) and serve great wine. This restaurant was a big surprise since until then we had thought the food was pretty bad overall. I recommend this restaurant!
