The Liverpool restaurants with outside spaces reopening from 12 April
3 years ago
Here are some of the restaurants with outside spaces in Liverpool that you can book right now!
It’s seems like ages since we could all eat out, but April 12 is the big day when restaurants with outdoor space can start reopening again.
If you can’t wait to get back out there and have lunch, brunch or dinner – hopefully in some sunshine – then you’d probably better get booking a table soon because they’re getting snapped up fast.
Here are 13 restaurants in Liverpool city centre where you’ll be able to get yourself an outdoor table soon …
El Gato Negro
The Exchange Flags restaurant isn’t just reopening, it’s putting on Tapas on the Terrace to celebrate. From April 12, it’ll be serving up a selection of its most popular small plates on the outdoor terrace which seats up to 80 people, seven days a week until May 17 when hopefully indoors will be back.
Tables under those trademark aqua blue parasols will be packed out again from April 12 when Gino’s outdoor terrace on Castle Street is back in business. There’ll be a new spring menu of Italian dishes to choose from and obviously the Prosecco bar inside will be fully stocked and ready to top up everyone’s glasses.
Maray, Albert Dock
Fancy dockside dining in your own little pod? Maray Albert Dock built some specially last year and bookings for them are absolutely flying now. They’re heated and can be reserved from April 12 onwards when the restaurant is relaunching sit-ins with a new spring small plates menu (don’t worry, the disco cauli’s still there!)
Outdoor eating spaces don’t come much better placed than this one, right on the corner of Hope Street and Falkner Street (so you get the chance of a table on two sides). Gastro pub Papillon is back from April 12, for everything from breakfasts right through and it’s known for a very decent Sunday roast too.
Everything crossed for nice weather on the 14th because that’s when Baltic Market is opening outdoors with a reduced number of traders. It’s just walk-ins, there’ll be a two-hour limit on tables so that should keep long waits down to a minimum and you can socially-distanced queue if there’s not one free.
The Toxteth Riviera is back in the game from April 12 and The Quarter is getting ready to open up its terrace again. Bookings are available for outside tables now as well as for indoor from May 17 so it’s time to get on and make sure you get yourself a sunny spot to watch the world go by.
The courtyard in Hardman Yard is looking super-pretty and all set to welcome back walk-ups for its outdoor benches. April 12 will be the happy day you can stop just dreaming about the amazing home-made pasta or maybe a pizza and start eating it again – go heavy on the parmesan, we’ve been away too long!
Outdoor eating and drinking is coming back to Bacaro from April 12 so those gorgeous small plates will be making Castle Street one of Liverpool’s tastiest places to be again. There are extra tables on the terrace so get one, and maybe a couple of bellinis from the Bellini Bar, and hope for an early heatwave.
The Club House
Liverpool ONE is going to be reopening for all non-essential shopping again from April 12 and so will one of the sunniest, most sought-after places to go for food and drinks. The Club House is an absolute top destination, especially when the sun’s out, so hanging kebabs and spritzes outdoors it is then.
Another little gem on Castle Street is planning an April 12 comeback with a menu of small plates and cocktails at its outdoor tables. Heritage Restaurant and Bar does a great selection of really imaginative dishes on its seasonally-changing menu, all of which go very nicely with one of its Castle Street Lemmo cocktails.
Bold Street’s still closed off to traffic which means outdoor tables can take over. Good news for all fans of the legendary Café Tabac because it’ll be serving outside from April 12 on benches overlooking the Bombed Out Church. Grab one of its famous full Englishes from 9am, or take your pick through until 6pm.
Down at Cains Brewery Village, Dockleaf is opening its outdoor spaces again from April 12. There’s no bookings for this one, just walk-ins, but plenty of hearty pub grub (including fabulous roasts and scouse) and as well as you they’d love to see your dogs back too! House rules say you’ll need to wear a mask.
Free State Kitchen
Good things come to those who wait … and you’ll have to wait until April 14 to get back into FSK’s little garden on Maryland Street. But once you do, big beautiful burgers await and other American classics like buffalo hot wings and chilli cheese fries. It’s totally open air so go weather prepared.
