Hi, I'm off to Liverpool in a couple of weeks for my birthday (yippee!). Can anyone recommend somewhere nice for dinner, preferably in the City Centre?

Many thanks

Haven't been personally and I don't live in Liverpool but I've heard good reports about Jamie's Italian there. I'm sure there will be people who can give you much more than this though. It's been years since I was in Liverpool myself but according to my SIL who was there in the not too distant past, it's a great city to visit these days, lots to do and has a "vibrant" feel to it. If I'm not mistaken, Gravy Queen lives in Liverpool, if she sees this thread, I'm sure she'll be able to give you loads of ideas.

What a great city for a fun birthday! I go back home to Liverpool frequently, and over the years have been disappointed in the restaurants, however I would say that in the past five years there has been a great improvement. My favourite is The Restaurant Bar and Grill in Brunswick Street. It has a large bar where you can have a drink before or after dinner. The food has always been really good and we have also eaten in their restaurant in Manchester. It has a good lively atmosphere. There also is a very good modern Italian restaurant in Cook Street called Piccolino, which is around the Matthew Street area.

If you do go to the R, B & G and it is still daylight, I can highly recommend you going to Panoramic in Brook Street, for a drink only first, it's about a five minute walk away. Panoramic is on the 34th floor and you get the most amazing views of Liverpool. You could also have an early cocktail there earlier on. I would ring them first, we did in the summer and got a table for drinks at dusk and it was wonderful watching all the lights come on as the city got dark.

All of these should be within walking distance of where you are staying but you don't mention where your hotel is.

Gravy has been to Jamies and I know she really liked it, sure she will add if she sees this.

Hi Lizzie
Nor has made some good suggestions, I havent been to Panoramic but know people who have and heard great reviews about it.

I can highly recommend quite a few restaurants in the City Centre, some of my favourites being:

Jamie's Italian in Paradise Street (you can check it out online). Depending on what time you go though, be prepared for a wait, unless its a big party they don't have a booking system. We went for a nice lunch got there about 1.30 p.m. and didnt wait at all. Really lovely inside and the food was brilliant, good experience.

In Duke Street, there are 2 amazing restaurants next door to each other. One is italian - Il Forno, and the other is Japanese - Sapporo Teppanyaki (again you can check these out online). Both wonderful, food and service absolutely spot on.

Do check out our Liverpool One area (Jamie's restaurant is in L1). Loads of lovely shops and upstairs is the bars and restaurants part. I can highly recommend the Thai Restaurant Chaophyra and the Mexican, Las Iguanas. We also have a Wagamama there and a new italian called Prego. If you fancy a nice little (expensive!) cocktail treat yourself at the Palm Sugar Lounge.

If you fancy a drink at a quirky little pub the Beatles frequented, we like the Jacaranda and round the corner from there is Alma de Cuba - a renovated church which is amazing and they do a rather cheeky Cuba Libre there. (Havana rum, my fave!). They also do food you can eat downstairs (good tapas) or book for upstairs.

If you have any other questions let me know and if I think of anything else I will come back to you. Most of all, enjoy yourself and let me know how it goes!

Lizzie - how was your trip to Scouse Land?

Contrite Lizzie...

Sorry all, have just been reminded that I didn't feedback after all your helpful replies to my original thread - many apologies, I'm usually quite good but it must have slipped my mind! We tried to book Las Iguanas but it was fully booked, so with our teeth set for Tex-Mex, we went to the Tavern Co in Queen Square. I'm bound to say we were a bit disappointed, so maybe next time I'll book earlier and try and get Las Iguanas!

Thanks again for your suggestions.

Lovely Liverpool

GravyQueen, have been back since, but just for a day trip to see the Magritte exhibition at the Tate (excellent)!. I love Liverpool - on my birthday trip last year I introduced my OH to "Paddy's Wigwam", and we visited the Lady Lever and the Walker as well as doing a bit of shopping/sight-seeing. Will definitely be back soon.

Oh Lizzie I missed the Magritte I kept meaning to go durr! Last one I did at the Tate was Klimt and that was a few years back but totally fab.

A trip on the ferry is a good little ride too - you can check the times online and get your tickets down by the Pier Head.

Do try some of the lovely places to eat in L1 next time if you can, and also Jamie's Italian is great and San Carlo. I go to Las Igs quite often and it's really good. Speshlly when ish iz cokctail frour. Two for the price of one. Hic.
