A lovely little Mexican restaurant has just opened up at the bottom of my Nan's road. I took my girlfriend there last Friday and we had a great time. The atmosphere was really nice and relaxed and the food was absolutely brilliant, I never knew chilli con carne could be so sexy.
Bistro Franc, as the name alludes, is a French bistro located in Church House, Hanover street, right next to the new John Lewis. Their 'Lunch Rapide' for 7.95 is a real bargain and a great way to stay on budget if you have one. The dining room is very quaint and while it is usually very busy at lunch times this only adds to the atmosphere. The portions are generous and the food delicious.
An amazing bar and restaurant off Duke Street in Liverpool city centre, it's a former Victorian jail which makes for a very unusual setting to eat.
Despite its former use, the venue is incredibly stylish and cosy and you can still eat in the cells as well as in an elegant dining area upstairs where's there's also a champagne lounge. Food is fab and service is very good. Also very reasonably priced especially with the set meal on a weekday.
Campbell Square off Duke Street, Liverpool 0151 709 4195. Nearest train station is Liverpool Central. The restaurant can be walked to from the city centre along Hanover Street walking towards the Albert Dock. Perfect if you're going for a gig at the Arena!
Savina is a modern Mexican restaurant in Liverpool city centre. Visited here a couple of times over the last year and it's lovely. Visited again this weekend, was very busy and the service was still very good.
The staff are lovely and food is really nice. I had the Alambre De Pollo, a chicken kebab with some pepper jam type sauce on, it was fantastic and my friends also enjoyed their foods as well. Visit Alma De Cuba afterwards and you will have a memorable trip to Liverpool.
We have booked again for our summer trip to Liverpool. We have even booked again when we come and see Boyzone at the new arena. I would strongly recommend Savina.

The most amazing Indian food I have ever tasted in modern chic surroundings, it's just a couple of minutes' walk from Bold Street. Definitely try the Paneer Makhani - diced cottage cheese simmered in creamy tomato sauce with just a touch of honey.
Also fab is the Patrani Sea Bass which is steamed with coconut, sesame, coriander and mint and enveloped in banana leaf. The lunch menu is very tasty with a choice of nine dishes all very reasonably priced. Finish it off with a fruit sorbet which is divine! I love it so much here I actually ate both my lunch and dinner there last week!
130 Duke Street, Liverpool, L1 5AG 0151 709 9955, Five minutes from Liverpool Central Station.
This is an Indian restaurant with a very different menu from the norm. The cooking is assured and the sauces all different - no basic curry sauce for every meal here. Highly recommended.
The Ziba is a restaurant based in the boutique hotel at the Racquet Club. It is not as widely reviewed as some of the other restaurants for fine dining in Liverpool but has been serving excellent food for many years.
It's located in a beautiful building in the central business district, and is a must for a special night out.

A Chinese restaurant near the Chinese arch which has a more interesting Sechuan menu alongside the usual choices. Makes a refreshing chnage from the more bog standard food we are offered.
Cosy, underground cellars form the three rooms of the bistro. Below ground level, the bistro is a great pre-play venue or meeting place for friends.
When I go home to see my parents we go to the Everyman after I get in to Lime Street. It's really relaxed and although pretty basic, the menu is consistently varied, tasty and fantastic value.
Without exception, my dad orders the delicious tortilla with salads, and the desserts are highly recommended.

One of the classiest Indian restaurants in Liverpool, and one of the many different eateries in Lark Lane. The food is delicious (all of it), the service is second-to-none and the place oozes luxury, cleanliness and attention to detail. Large, exotic menu. £15 to £20 per head, so not especially expensive.
15-21 Lark Lane
Between Aigburth Road and Sefton Park
St. Michael's Station is 10 mins. walk away.

We like real food and do not always find places that cook well. The Monro cooks very well and we had skewered ostrich and a very nice dish called British Classics which I had.
It came in little pots and was traditional local food. We have travelled all over England for the summer and this place is the one we will remember the most. Everyone there looked after us and took the time to explain everything to us.
Food, people and prices are all excellent. You will not be afraid to go back many times.
Keralan restaurant on the London Road in Liverpool, round the back of Lime Street Station.
Claims to be the only south Indian restuarant in the northwest, and while that may not be true, the lunchtime thalis (£6, veg or non-veg with fish) are a treat, especially a fantastic tangy tomato curry that comes with the veg option.
More elaborate food in the evenings, including superb pot-roast lamb with coconut. Their vada and aloo bonda are excellent as well, and they'll quickly prepare a take-away bag of snacks if you're catching the train.

The Monro does amazing food that is in my opinion better than some of the top restaurants in the city. Featuring rabbit, wild boar and Welsh buffalo they create really special dishes at great prices.
Also don't be fooled by their bar snacks blackboard on the way in. This is more memorable food that's ingenious and cheap.
