Maray

91 Bold Street, Liverpool L1 4HF

Set on one of Liverpool's most famous and bustling eating and drinking street (Bold Street) Maray offers a modern, interesting and tasty menu by any standards.

Choose from a selection of slightly unusual (Whipped goat’s cheese, cardamom, honey & crisp flatbread or Seared tuna, white truffle, potatoes, mushroom, lardo) sophisticated small plates sourced locally, selected seasonally but inspired globally, from far off places such as the Middle East, Scandinavia and America.

There’s a good choice of signature house cocktails and hand-selected bottled beers and wines, so you won’t want for good flavours in both the drinks and the food.

Maray prices are also exceptionally fair with most dishes sitting comfortably around the £6 or a little less mark, so you can’t complain there, especially with the quality that is on offer.

The narrow intimate restaurant space is very comfortable, simple and Scandi inspired with a mixture of small tables for two or four, a long communal dining table (made from reclaimed doors and sewing machine stands) down the centre of the room and a lovely little bar area for those wanting that European tapas feel.

A table needs to be booked in advance, so go-ahead and do it, you won’t regret it, if you like some unusual combinations then job done, every dish we tried was delish, as was the waitress, so friendly, helpful, open and chatty! Well lets faced it, you are in Liverpool.

Note: If you can’t get into the Bold Street location you can always get brunch at the Allerton Road branch, just a short bus ride away.
