As lockdown measures ease and our much loved Liverpool restaurants start to open again it means we can begin to safely explore our favourite places to eat! 

Liverpool is pretty much a foodies dream. We have restaurants to suit everyone's tastes and favourite cuisines for every mood and occasion. So, whether you’re looking for breakfast, brunch, lunch, a light snack or an evening meal there will be a place just right for you!

To help you plan your next trip to Liverpool we have put together a guide to some of Liverpool’s favourite restaurants, all listed by area so you know exactly where to head. 

As each venue is different, they will all have their own government approved social distancing guidelines, booking systems and opening times so we would recommend planning ahead and visiting their website before your trip for more information. We will also regularly update the list as more restaurants begin to open. 

Get ready to fall in love with Liverpool’s restaurants!
