Liverpool has a vibrant food and drink scene and is a popular destination for travellers from all over the world, partygoers, families and students. So it’s no surprise that you can find global inspired street food, trendy dining, and pop ups all over the city. But where is the best place to go on first dates dates, special anniversaries, and to pop that all important question? Look no further: from seafood and stunning views, cosy nooks and casual date spots, here’s my top five romantic restaurants in Liverpool.
There’s nothing more romantic than a great view, and Panoramic 34 (so named for its location on the 34th floor of the Liverpool’s tallest building West Tower) combines an epic vista with great food. Whether booking for lunch, afternoon tea, or dinner and cocktails, you’ll be in for a breathtaking view across the city both day and night. A really unique destination, perfect for special birthdays, impressing someone special, and – dare we say it – proposals!
This award-winning gastropub on Duke Street is ideal for loved up couples of all ages. The Monro prides itself on fresh and local food, prepared on the premises. Book a table for anniversaries and date nights throughout the year. With cosy surroundings and exquisite food, Liverpool will never fall out of love with The Monro.
Enjoy seafood and sunsets with your ‘great catch’ at Cargo next to the River Mersey. Seafood lovers can choose from langoustines, monkfish, seabass, squid, and more. Alongside fresh fish, there’s plenty for meat eaters too with surf ‘n’ turf, steaks, and burgers. Push the boat out with fresh lobster or splash out on a seafood platter for two which includes seabass, prawns, calamari, cod, and sides.
The Italian Club
Nobody does romance like the Italians so where better to head with your amore than this family- run gem on bustly Bold Street. Perfect for a first date or 100th date, The Italian Club is just the place for a relaxed coffee and pastry or lunchtime panino in the daytime, or pizza and pasta in
Stanley’s Bar & Grill at The Titanic Hotel
For a special occasion with the one you love, go all out with an overnight stay or weekend break at the spectacular Titanic Hotel. Treat yourselves to couples treatments at the Maya day spa then enjoy afternoon tea in the historic surroundings of this former tobacco warehouse. Don’t miss the evening menu in Stanley’s Bar & Grill, where cod cheek or seared scallop starters, gunpowder chicken or steaks straight from the chargrill are just the tip of the iceberg. The extensive wine list and variety of spirits from their Rum Bar are first class too.
