Set in a beautiful Grade I-listed building, multi award-winning What’s Cooking? offers American and Mexican cuisine with contemporary twists. Guests can enjoy views over Liverpool’s historic Albert Dock, and bask on the al fresco terrace during summer.

The assorted What’s Cooking menu presents traditional American themed mains like the Scooby Snack: two 4-oz burgers with double cheese, double bacon, double pineapple, and an extravaganza of relish and cheese; and signature Mexican dishes like the crowd favourite, chilli con carne.

What’s Cooking restaurant pays tribute to pop culture throughout the decades of the 20th century, with a Sex Pistols canvas and a Marilyn Monroe portrait being amongst the diner’s vibrant gallery. A superb cocktail list features authentic American classics like the Long Island iced tea and Morgan’s spiced rum mule.

Overlooking Liverpool's Three Graces and serving excellent cuisine for over 30 years, What’s Cooking in Liverpool is less than a 10-minute walk from the city centre.
