[Liverpool, Albert Dock] Any reccs?

  • 3

We're going to the Mondrian exhibition at the Tate and will need lunch.

I know the Dock is not fertile territory for good eating but I'm currently very limited in my walking ability and need somewhere on the immediate plot. Any "best of a bad lot" recc, please?

(Ate at the Spice Lounge last trip and thought it OK - but only OK)

  1. The Albert dock is a bit of a desert, but if you fancy just snacks, then Vinea is a good call - it's basically a wine bar with charcuterie and other stuff, but as you don't drink, it might not suit you. It is a nice independent place in a dock full of chains though.

    The Tate café can be quite good, but not cheap.

    The Maritime Museum has a restaurant which is supposed to be good, but I've not been - only round the corner from the Tate.

    The only other place in the dock I have heard decent reports on, aside from East z East, is Gusto - but it's a chain and I've not been, so can't comment.

    Good luck!

      Thanks Theresa.

      Gusto's part of the Living Ventures Group, along with Blackhouse Grills and Manchester House (Aiden Byrne's place in Manc), and a couple of other places. Decent enough mini-chain Italian.

      I'd forgotten the Maritime Museum - I've eaten there once, years back, when I was doing some research in their archives. I have a vague recollection it was OK.

        I think it's been upgraded/rejuvenated in the last few years, so it may be better than the last time you went - it might be worth checking their menu on the website
