About Retsina

Retsina is as much part of Liverpool’s identity as the Cavern Club or The Beatles – well, perhaps not quite as much but nearly on 20 years, this Greek haven is a city institution. Located in Old Swan, this family-run restaurant serves up some the best Greek and Mediterranean fare you’ll find, and is only going from strength to strength. You’ll find dishes such as vegetarian moussaka loaded with vegetables, pork ribs known as kokalakis and stifado of beef cooked in spices, wine and tomatoes, with plenty more besides. So arm yourself with a reservation and head to Derby Lane for a feast you won’t be forgetting. Upa!
