4 of us ate here a week before Xmas and the place was nearly empty. I had downloaded the early evening ,menu at £13.95 for two courses and 3 of us had decided to have the cod and fat chips.
When we were given the menu it did not have the fish listed and it was now £16.95 for two courses. When we queried this we were told it was the Xmas menu but that we could have the cod and chips - at £16.95 not £13.95! The other guest had the sea bass which he said had no flavour.The cod was a very small fillet, like a large fish finger but tasted ok and the chips were good. Two scoops of ice cream for dessert - not worth the £16.95. Plus the bill, when it came, was so complicated with additions and refunds galore that we did not realise until later we had been overcharged to boot! We will not be returning!

Returned to The Patio Restaurant for our second visit last night, Simply WOW! i did not think they could surpass the quality and presentation of the food after our last visit, but how wrong was I, we started with a smoked salmon and prawn cocktail, followed by a stunning dish of chicken fillet stuffed with sage and onion, accompanied by chateau potatoes, red wine gravy and a side portion of creamy savoy cabbage and pancetta. After that feast we had to share a desert.
All in all an excellent meal, delivered with friendly service in very classy surroundings !
What more could you ask for ! We will definitely be going back to The Patio early in the new year

I proposed to my wife in 2011 here and have brought the family back a number of times. The food, service and venue are perfect every time.

Like the food and the service. Don't like the decor- very dated and don't order steak unless you like it well done!

First visit here last Saturday (and only booked here as we couldn't get in our usual restaurant!) and was very impressed. Food was excellent - good choice without there being 100's of selections - which I always think is a bit dodgy! I chose the mini lemon sole fillets for a starter and they were absolutely delicious with a very tasty garlicky, tartar dip. OH and I both had the lamb cutlets, again delicious and for pudding I has the perfect panacotta. We were with some friends from outside Liverpool and the service was absolutely spot on. We had quite a few different staff attending to us and all were polite, efficient ans friendly. Couldn't have wished for better. What ambassadors for Liverpool. Thanks so much
