This fabulous new buzzy Liverpool food & drink destination set in a supa-cool renovated 100-year-old warehouse will definitely have your mouth watering and features six independent food counters, three bars, a florist and a flagship restaurant, so prepare to be spoilt for choice and the choices are all 'very good'!
The food market or food hall (as tables are tended to by waiting staff who will bring your order to your table, once you have placed it at the station of your choice) is vibrant, lively and a busy hub of hungry people, here for really great food in a fantastic venue.
Stations include, traditional cooking methods, food cooked over open wood fires and a range of Italian,new Asian, Japanese and Korean specialities, so something for everyone.
Great venue, superb food and wonderfully thought out cuisine choices, if you like trying something away from the norm, then DSF&DM is the place for you.

Situated just off Penny Lane (you will all have heard of that!) so its not hard to find! and an additional choice to their city centre branch, which is located more centrally in Berry Street, central Liverpool, if you don't find yourself in the L15 area of the city.
Serving dishes inspired by classic Catalan flavours with a menu full of goodies, such a classic meatballs in spicy tomato sauce (delicious) cheese or fish croquetas, tasty tortilla, a wide selection of pinxtos and some wonderful choices of cheese or meat charcuterie boards, Desserts options were good too, with the hot churros & chocolate sauce high on the 'I want' list! and all washed down really with great choices of Spanish wines or a cold glass of Sparkling Cava.
Lunch or dinner both recommended, the food came thick and fast, was full of flavour, good prices and the service was impeccable, couldn't fault it!
Great tapas dishes done really well.
64 Greenbank Road, Liverpool L18 1HQ
Great little local cosy Bistro/Café serving tasty breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
Seasonal ingredients, amazing salads, delicious sharing platters and from what we saw, some amazing cakes made by local artisan bakers and in-house (they looked fabulous!)
By night, the Watering Can becomes a small local restaurant in its own right, specialising in an assortment of pizzettes and a wondaful array of small plates, and some organic wines or cocktails to accompany your food choices.
The interiors are lovely too and feature lots of natural wood,re-claimed scaffolding boards, rusted tin, tree trunks a rustic wooden bar, with a gorgeous cosy conservatory to boot! looking out over the stunning renovated walled garden which was apparently part of the grounds of the Rathbone’s family estate.
A gorgeous little local find, attached to the equally beautiful Sefton Park, a great place to hang out with friends or family to eat, drink or both, stylish, contemporary and great savoury and sweet choices, go hang out, you wont be disappointed, well worth a visit.

The Florist is a beautiful contemporary and unique floral styled restaurant and bar that is the cream of the crop in Liverpool’s ever growing world class food scene.
Situated in what was originally an old Victorian Royal School for the Blind, the Florist brings a breathe of fresh air to this Grand and Stunning Grade II historic listed building.
With a sleek bar and seating area to the left of its grand entrance, complete with two full-size in-bloom trees, an impressive central staircase and a chic drinking lobby to the right of the entrance, the scene is set for a very special experience.
Breath-taking floral installations, subtle neon lights, a floral phot wall and delicate tasteful furniture cover the interior of this beautiful building and create an atmosphere that is light, bright, airy and of course, fresh as a daisy.
As you are transported into a floral fairy tale, the interior designer has created a sensory experience that will enchant the senses and relax the mind, if you like flowers, then you are in for a floral treat.
The menu covers a combination of delicious meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan dishes, so there’s something for everyone and there is a great combination of world-wide cuisines that will not disappoint (British, Turkish, Asian, Americans etc).
Our starters came on a large rustic wooden platter that we created ourselves, picking 4 delicious choices from a combination of 16 starter dishes grouped in either a meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan category (4 per category) which you were able yo mix and match to yput own taste, creating your own platter.
All 4 of the choices we made were outstanding (deep fried camembert with homemade pickle, haddock fishcakes, Thai chilli pork chunks and a Chicken & Prawn Spring roll with a fresh mint dip). Main courses raged from traditional steak and fries (amazing!) home-made burgers, Stir-fries and even Grilled Kebabs and the desserts were pretty good too, we went for the American Cheesecake, just delish!
The extensive wine and cocktail list was outstanding, as were the prices! And there’s DJ’s and saxophonists (for that extra little bit of sophistication).
Overall, we can see why The Florist has been nominated as one of the best restaurants in the UK (2019)
Good luck ‘The Florist’ we hope you win, you really deserve it!
One of Liverpools most beautiful venues, with great service, great décor and really great food, highly recommended by www.ificould.co.uk

We finally found it, after trying several times! (we think that’s the plan!) Most people only find out about it through word of mouth, as its hidden away with just a blacked out door and window that could be easily missed, however, once inside you will love every minute.
To enter, knock on the anonymous black door and if there is a table available, the doorman will whisper were you will be seated and ushers you inside to your table, if there are no tables free then you will not be able to enter, as the policy is table seating only, making it a comfortable experience for all.
Once inside you will see that Berry & Rye is a unique prohibition era themed bar specialising in whiskey, blues, jazz and gin and it really feels like stepping back in time (USA 1930's) their approach is very authentic with the drinks menus hidden away inside bibles, era appropriate furniture & styling and cosy dimmed candle light flickering in old wine bottles to get you in the mood.
The drinks will be brought to your table while you relax listening to the cool sounds of the resident pianist.
www.ificould.co.uk really loved this venue, a great place to unwind, kick back with a great, personalised drink and take in the quality live music, not to be missed!
