Fonseca's (The Original Delifonseca)


Re-named ‘Fonseca’s’ after its big brother Delifonseca Dockside opened in Brunswick Quay in 2010, Stanley Street is the original Delifonseca and affectionately known amongst the staff as the 'mothership'.

It is positioned between the edge of the central shopping zone and the business district in an area now recognised as the Stanley St Quarter. This makes for an eclectic mix of regulars from business suits and barristers, local residents, foodies, shoppers and even recording artists from neighbouring studios. These customers create a unique atmosphere all whom seem to have a genuine affection for the place.

Its five comfy booths are regularly sought after for brisk lunches and private afternoon business meetings but in the evening it transforms into one of the Liverpool's most cosy candlelight restaurants. This makes it popular as a destination evening restaurant and a favourite pre-theatre venue for Playhouse and Empire regulars. Downstairs, there is a newly established bar that offers customers an extensive wine list by the glass plus a large variety of premium spirits and beers. There is also a menu of small ‘plates’ and snacks, created by Delifonseca’s head chef Marc Paley.

Since opening its doors six years ago, Fonseca's has attracted attention on a local and regional scale. Awards given include Liverpool’s ‘Favourite Restaurant’ at the Liverpool Food & Drink Awards 2012, Regional Runner-up ‘Deli of the Year’ at the Guild of Fine Food Awards 2012, Angus Morrison named ‘Waiter of the Year’ at the Liverpool Ambassador Awards 2012, Taste Award in the Merseyside Tourism Awards 2010 and LFDF 2013 'Best Front of House' for General Manager Danielle Youds.
