GO Different in Liverpool

Alternative Eateries in Liverpool

If you’re tired of the usual foods restaurants have to offer then why not make the most of your trip to Liverpool by heading to one the many eateries that offer something a little different.

You can find everything from Vietnamese and Thai, to Portuguese and Greek in this city, so without further ado here's some suggestions for some restaurants with a difference.

For starters you could try a little Spanish tapas at La Tasca [map], which is situated opposite the impressive Marriot City Centre Hotel on Queen Square. With seating outside and in, you can either soak up the Liverpudlian atmosphere or enjoy the Spanish interior complete with authentic music. The menu includes a delicious selection of tapas and paellas, and you can wash it all down with a glass of traditional sangria.

If you’re looking for a restaurant where fun and games are also on the menu, then why not try one of the city’s Greek eateries, where you can enjoy great food and then go plate smashing!

Located in the arty Lark Lane area, Akis Taverna [map] gives the feeling of a Mediterranean summer all year round. In traditional Greek style, this restaurant is bright, busy, loud and full of party spirit, while the menu includes a good choice of fresh seafood and wonderful lamb dishes. Vegetarians are also catered for.

Another exciting Greek restaurant worth trying is The Kebab House [map] on Hardman Street in the city centre, which encourages plate smashing and belly dancing after a meal. The Greek décor gives the place a traditional atmosphere that is cosy and accommodating – it’s a lot like being on holiday really.

For a taste of the Orient why not head to one of the city’s Thai restaurants such as The Siam Garden [map] on Smithdown Road near the Penny Lane area. Here you’ll find staff serving a selection of banquets in traditional Thai costume, while all the dishes are prepared by genuine South East Asian chefs.

If you’re feeling more adventurous you could always opt for Vietnamese at the popular Fung Lok [map] restaurant, which is also close to the Penny Lane district. Serving an adventurous menu including starters like; pureed prawns on sugar cane, and main courses including Vietnamese-style battered chicken in chilli and garlic, this eatery is a big hit with locals, businesspeople and tourists.

Liverpool is also home to The Algarve [map] – a well-known Portuguese restaurant in centrally located Stanley Street. This intimate restaurant is so cosy and small you may feel like you’ve wandered into someone’s living room by mistake, but it offers wonderful cuisine, particularly seafood.

The city also has a good selection of Indian restaurants such as Shah’s City Balti House [map] and Asha [map]. But in addition Liverpool is also home to one of Europe’s oldest Chinatowns, based around Berry Street, which has restaurants including Far East [map] and the Mayflower [map].

Finally, for American grub why not head to the cool Eddie Rocket’s City Diner on Bold Street [map], which is a 1950s style American diner complete with ‘Happy Days’ décor, rock ‘n’ roll music, and the longest hot dog in Liverpool on the menu.
