Certainly one of the most unique restaurants in Liverpool city centre, Carpathia is so named after the ship that saved the RMS Titanic’s survivors. Quite some history around these parts, we’re sure you’ll agree. This fine restaurant is nestled inside the spectacular 30 James Street Hotel and the quality of the food on offer is second to none. Sit amongst opulence reminiscent of that of the Titanic itself and enjoy a gourmet menu inspired by the traditions of the British kitchen. The chefs here know their stuff better than most in Liverpool and what’s even better? Carpathia serves a wonderful afternoon tea that you’ll not forget in a hurry.
Billed as a restaurant and champagne bar, Carpathia lives up to the luxurious standards the trail-blazing (and fated) RMS Titanic embodied. Housed inside the 30 James Street Hotel in Albion House, the former headquarters of the White Star Line, Carpathia makes the most of this crucial piece of Liverpool’s rich maritime history, decking out the restaurant and bar with artefacts and preserving curious aspects of the original building’s architecture in order to build a memorable venue for drinks and dinner. If you book just for drinks, be sure to take your cocktail or champagne flute out onto Carpathia’s terrace overlooking the city’s docklands and impressive city centre skyline.
Afternoon tea is another hot ticket at Carpathia, where indulgence in this typically British pastime takes place under high ceilings and below Albion House’s opulent windows, opening out from the top floor of Liverpool’s 30 James Street Hotel onto the city centre and waterfront. Supercharge an afternoon of scones and sandwiches, coffee, cakes and tea with a glass of Laurent Perrier for a real first-class occasion. As for Carpathia’s legendary restaurant, the menu cleaves close to the historic British look and feel of the whole, using locally-sourced produce to create dishes that pay attention to the seasons. A highlight from the spring menu is the roasted lamb rump with a tomato and Cajun crust with truffle and parmesan gnocchi, pear puree and a veal and port jus.
Great experience with my Girlfriend and I. The only complaint we can have was that lots of people kept walking past our table, which is only a very small complaint. The food was absolutely beautiful and the drinks were amazing. Definitely worth a trip
Just returned from birthday meal for our daughter.Meal was wonderful ,we have not eaten here before but will certainly return.Our evening was made even better thanks to our waiter James M he was very attentive to our needs and when he knew it was our daughter's birthday he arranged for cake and candle to be brought to our table at the end of our meal
Beautiful restaurant, amazing food and staff wonderful and attentive with nothing being too much bother. The view from the balcony is amazing. Liked it so much, I have already re-booked.
This is a great little restaurant. With great views over the Mersey waterfront. The food was lovely and the service very good. Will visit again.
Stunning Location with spectacular 360° views of the City of Liverpool , Albert Dock & Liver Buildings. First class service whilst dining in the restaurant with our party. James maitre d was an absolute delight. Most welcoming and hospitable. A la carte food was delicious and beautifully served. Cocktails were flowing as was the fizz. Couldn't ask for more! Most definitely 5* Hard to beat in Liverpool. Highly Recommend Carpathia
This was the first time we'd been to this restaurant, but turned out to be a fantastic evening for my wife's birthday. Champagne as ordered on table for when we arrived, with the added bonus of strawberrys and very tasteful table decorations. Special thanks to our waiter, who was really great, he got everything spot on. The live music was just right also. The food we ordered was superb (mushroom soup starter for both of us, and for mains -chicken for my wife and red mullet for myself) again supurb. Wasn't sure about sweet, as by this time feeling quite full, but the decision was made easy for us, as out came a lovely piece of birthday cheesecake (with a candle) to share. A great end to a great night.
Atmosphere good, staff friendly, good views in better weather, music from keyboard player not too loud. However I've had better food for the money we paid. My friend's steak was tough. I had calves liver, which was ok. The side dish of seasonal vegetables was good, apart from baby turnips that were raw. We shared a cheeseboard, which was fine. Being British we didn't complain! Having waited over 30 mins for our meal we didn't want to start all over again (we had been warned that a medium-well done steak would take 20 mins). The starters looked interesting but expensive but I didn't think I could manage one. Best bit was the cocktails. We had 2 for £10 and were a fun way to start our short break. If I went again I would have a starter and then try one of the fish dishes. It was a good way to see inside the hotel, which has very quirky/kitsch decorations and I would definitely go again in good weather if I could have a table outside!
Not quite what I was expecting. I thought we would be having an evening of fine dining and sophistication. The beautiful dining room was mainly full of hen parties and a singer was bought in to entertain us at 9.00pm. Having said all that, the girls in the hen parties were extremely well behaved, if a little loud at times and the singer was great. It was just not what I was expecting. The service in the restaurant was very good, but again not quite as attentive as 1 would have expected, the food, whilst tasty was not warm enough, perhaps as the large hen parties were taking priority. I think perhaps this restaurant is aiming at the market for a Saturday night in Liverpool and they cannot be blamed for that. We had a great evening but I'm not sure that I would return.
The food at Caparthia was delicious. I myself had soup for starter, duck for main and chocolate peanut brownie for dessert, all lovely! My boyfriend also really enjoyed his too, so no complaints! However, even though the food was lovely the waitress we had was so miserable. No smiles and she served us with an attitude that made us feel as if we were disturbing her. All the other wait staff looked happy and helpful. It was just ours that didnt want to be there. Would visit again for the food but would hope we got a different person to serve us! So definitely a must visit.
Visiting my daughter in Liverpool i chose to take my daughter and mother here as it sounded lovely everyone was polite but the food and service where slow to appear with food we ordered not arriving at all. Considering the prices I expected a good level of service so very disappointed, however after speaking to the manager we we're given a discount and complimentary drinks on the terrace and an apollagy, so would visit again to see if it has improved.
